Happy Homemaker Monday
It was 54 degrees when I first got up at 5:30. It 63 degrees now, cool & crisp with a blue bird sky. A high of 79 is expected today.
Right now I am:
Writing this post while listening to the washer on its second load of clothes. I've already baked a batch of Reese's Oatmeal Mini Pieces Cookies. They are cooling.
I hope our pecans hurry & open up. The quicker we get them in the better price we receive (most of the time). I'm also thinking that my husband has some difficult things to figure out. We are thinning one of the orchards at the end of harvest. It is going to be a heartbreaking, difficult task to accomplish. Trees will be moved to some other property about 2 miles down the road.
On my reading pile:::
Continuing the study by Beth Moore, "Why Godly People Do Ungodly Things". This is a really great study.
"The Tale of Holly How". Its the second book in the mystery series by Susan Witting Albert. I am enjoying this fictional series about Beatrix Potter.
On my tv:::
Call The Midwife
The Bomb Girls
Beauty and The Beast
On the menu for this week:::
Leftover Shrimp Jambalaya that my husband made last night. Really good!!
Italian Veggie Soup
Baked Chicken with baked potatoes
Crock pot roast with carrots & rice
On my to do list:::
Deliver snacks to my granddaughters class (fresh baked cookies)
Clean my back porch
Re-pot some plants
I need to begin refreshing my ICU skills. You know the old saying, "If you don't use it, you lose it"!
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
NOT ONE THING HERE.
I clean my tubs and showers really good and about once a year I wax them with car wax. I was told to do this when we built our house by the people we bought our tubs from. It does help preserve the finish and prevent scum from sticking as bad.
Looking around the house:::
I have a basket full of my granddaughters toys to put away from her playing this weekend. She didn't have a chance to do it before she went back home. I also have a basket of clothes to put away. I really need to vac & mop my kitchen floor. We made a mess Friday when Danny & I were putting up 50 pounds of shrimp we bought.
From the camera:::
Playing by the pond.
On my prayer list:::
My kids and grands
This wacked out government system that we have.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
"As people who desire to seduce-proof their lives, we see that the world is going to get increasingly wicked, yet we've been sent smack into the middle of it." per Beth Moore in regards to Christians.
