Happy Homemaker Monday


thanks sandra at diary of a sahm for hosting each monday!
join in and link up to her blog for more monday posts.

The weather in my neck of the woods:
hot & humid...what's new!? maybe some late afternoon summer sprinkles

One of my simple pleasures:
sharing movies from when i was a kid with my kids~

On my bedside table:
the time traveler's wife...finally! about 1/2 done :) i love it!!!

On my TV:
right now, the kids are watching old scooby-doo and tom & jerry cartoons!

On the menu for tonight:
spaghetti, salad, italian bread

On my To Do List:
straighten up around here- nothing major, feeling sick.

New Recipe I tried last week:
made up a new recipe last night! pesto & parm chicken.
brown up some chicken breasts, put them in a casserole dish & slather on some store bought pesto :) sprinkle with parm. bake in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. super easy!!!

In the craft basket:
nothing :(

Looking forward to:
feeling better! this cough has turned into a head cold. besides that, i'm looking forward meeting new teachers for all three kids. still in disbelief that i'll have a 3rd, 1st grader and a pre-ker.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
my bedroom door has been so squeaky lately. got tired of it and sprayed some non-stick cooking spray on the hinges- worked like a charm!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
my dear friend Sarah reposted a blog she had written for her mom. i'm so proud of sarah! she is dealing with huge things right now- and God is leading her through it.

Favorite photo from last week:
ok, so not from LAST week, more like a few years ago! but i love this one of adam and it felt so nice to look back a this set of pics. he's so small here.


Lesson learned the past few days:
even when you don't know what to say....call anyway.
On my Prayer List:
the boerger & smith families ((hugs))
teachers as they prepare for the new school year
my family
