Happy Homemaker Monday

On my bedside table: now i'm reading 19 minutes by jodi picoult. really good book, tough subject matter. well written though. i'm about 1/2 way into it.

On my TV: yesterday we watched "the day the earth stood still" with keanu reeves. good movie- different! the ending was slightly disappointing.

On the menu for tonight: enchiladas, rice & beans. yummy!

On my To Do List: surprise-laundry! and working on my bedroom's always last on my list.

New Recipe I tried last week: don't think i tried anything new.

Looking forward to: a week with nothing major going on, a park lunch date with adam, and getting caught up on things here.

Homemaking Tip for this week: i'm trying something new with laundry- wash everything on one day, then the next put it all away. that way i'm not running around doing both all day, maybe?
i'll let ya know how that goes.

Favorite Photo of the week: i couldn't pic one :) i'm so getting prints of these! i can't believe they are 4, 6, & 8!

Favorite Blog Post of the week: "he always knows best" post by sandra at diary of a sahm. moms know a lot, but He knows the greater plan...

Lesson learned the past few days: we all need a day of rest- i took an awesome nap with the kids yesterday!

On my Prayer List: my good friend's mom is having surgery today, prayers of encouragement for myself- that i'd be the best mom/wife i can be and not let little things get in the way, for Sarah B Smith as she and her family make some big choices.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: 1 John 3 1
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

I read 19 minutes. Loved it. You're right though, tough subject matter ! I've read lots of Jodi Picoult books. She's one of my favorite authors.

laundry update: it all got done yesterday! even sheets! so today i'll start putting it all away- which is the worst part for me...but i will bring it all in the living room with lots of hangers- so i can keep an eye on adam!
