Happy Homemaker Monday

It's been a while since I participated in Happy Homemaker Monday. I've missed it! I enjoy keeping track of these simple things from week to week! Hope you enjoy reading along!

The weather in my neck of the woods:

It's cooler today. 79 degrees and a bit cloudy and rainy. It's nice that it's a bit cooler. Summers can be quite hot here in the South!

One of my simple pleasures:
Homegrown tomatoes. They're so delicious!

On my bedside table:
The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace.
Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney. Love this book!
The newest Sisterchick book by Robin Jones Gunn.
(I raided my sister's library for anything that looked interesting last time I visited!)

On my TV:
Trivial Pursuit

On the menu for tonight:
Eating at a church meeting. I'm planning on taking some homemade cookies and a cucumber and tomato salad.

On my To Do List:

For this week:
--Clip and sort coupons.
--Pick more blueberries.
--Work on material for the coupon class I'm teaching in less than a month. Yikes!

New Recipe I tried last week:

I canned bread and butter pickles using my mom's recipe. Delicious!

In the craft basket:

I have a skirt that is half-sewed that I really want to finish. Not sure when that will be though. :-)

Looking forward to:

Having my house back after the last of the visiting family leaves tomorrow. Don't get me wrong-I love having family and friends visit. But it is nice to get back to normal again, too!

Homemaking Tip for this week:
Keep it simple and enjoy the little things each day. Even if your to-do list never gets done!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
The Biggest Kitchen Table series at down-to-earth.

Favorite photo from last week:

I love this picture of my brother with my nephew and niece, Knox and Leila. My sister took it last week while he was visiting them. Leila is 5 weeks old already!

Lesson learned the past few days:
Letting God be in control of every detail of our lives and trusting Him to work every single thing out.

On my Prayer List:
--my husband
--our nation and President
--friends and family

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
"For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things."
I Timothy 4:8
