ON MY BEDSIDE TABLE:
The Message (a fresh way to read Scripture), Theadora's Diary. By:Penny Culliford. This is an easy read but I have not had the opportunity to finish it yet.

ON MY TV:
Not a whole lot of anything. There wasn't much on last week to catch on DVR.


ON THE MENU TONIGHT:
Shrimp and baked potatoes.....not sure if the shrimp will be fried or grilled. Danny cooks the shrimp in this house!

ON MY TO DO LIST:
1.My father-n-law's birthday is today. Danny, Little Package & I are delivering him his favorite breakfast this morning along with a goody bag of oatmeal cookies I baked.
2. Got a couple doctors appointments this week.
3. Plant a few flower seeds.

NEW RECIPE I TRIED LAST WEEK:
Grilled Steak Kabobs
I cut two nice size steaks into chunks. Marinated the meat in Italian & Parmesan dressing for 1 1/2 hours.
Alternated on the skewer: meat, sliced bell pepper, red onion, and cherry tomatoes. Grilled for about 10 minutes (we like the meat cooked medium). Served with yellow rice. We really enjoyed these. It was easy & tasty!

IN THE CRAFT BASKET:
Same thing as last week....nothing!

LOOKING FORWARD TO: Spring!!!! I think it has arrived here! Also looking forward to computerized charting at work. I think it will make things a lot easier in the nursing world.

HOMEMAKING TIP FOR THIS WEEK: Get out of DEBT! Get on a budget! Crown Financial has a wonderful Christian based guide to money management. I went through this class years ago at my church. It was awesome. They also have a website & host a radio show with really sound advice about everything to do with your money. DO IT!! It's the best thing you can do as a homemaker!

FAVORITE BLOG POST OF THE WEEK:
Sandra's last post, her vigilance in encouraging us all to be praying women, to be good wives, supporters of our husbands at THE MERCY SEAT. Thanks Sandra for the 31 days of prayer for our husbands!

FAVORITE PHOTO FROM LAST WEEK:
My Mama takes some really good pictures & she has a good sense of humor to add along with it. I liked this post she did last week. It made me laugh.











LESSON LEARNED THE PAST FEW DAYS:
There is no correct "Stimulus Package"! When money gets tight in this house, we don't go spend more & we sure as heck don't go and charge more. We buckle down! It is amazing to see how much "LESS" you can live with.

ON MY PRAYER LIST:
My Family.
A request from a friend at work.
Our Country.

DEVOTIONALS, SCRIPTURE READING, KEY VERSES:
"Dont run up debts, except for the huge debt of love you owe each other. When you love others, you complete what the law has been after all along. The law code--dont sleep with another person's spouse, dont take someone's life, dont take what isn't yours, dont always be wanting what you dont have, and any other "dont" you can think of---finally adds up to this:Love other people as well as you do yourself. You cant go wrong when you love others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is LOVE." Romans 13:8-10 The Message

For more Happy Homemaker Monday.....go to Sandra's.

Hi Sweet, Tina! I loved reading your post today. The scripture from Romans is one I need to read more often. Thanks for sharing,

I read your comment at Kelli's today. I think you are so funny....when you said she could be the next Martha. HE! HE!

Hope you all have a wonderful day. It sounds like a fun morning for you. Love, Debbi

P.S. What kind of nurse are you?

Carrie said...

Great post what time is dinner? lol

Kari said...

Enjoyed your list. And thanks for the verse. So simple - love, but sometimes very difficult.
Also dinner sounds great!

Jen said...

Some of the best meals I've ever made happen when we are very low on funds. I love that time, I feel so creative. Thank you for the reminder.

I wish I could say you got your good sense from me but I know it's not true. You must have got it from reading God's word! I love you and enjoyed the post!
Thanks for showing my bird!
I agree with you about Kelli and I haven't even read your comment on her blog but I'm going to do that now.
If I could change one thing about you it would be to get you to eat more VEGETABLES beside taters. lol

Sandra said...

Tina that was such a good lesson learned, I love it :)

Hope you're having a wonderful day,
Sandra

I love the picture of the bird. How is your Mama doing? I don't have a link to her blog anymore. Can you send me one?

August Rose said...

O'w I just love your comments. You say what I think and do not put down.

You are a traditionalist, no non-sense type grrrrl, and one who is not afraid to make tough decisions.
