Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Very cold!  Right now it's about 30 degrees although it's supposed to get to about 40 today.  Hello heat wave.  Haha!


Things that make me happy: 
Getting the house work done nice and early!



Book I'm reading:
I'm reading two right now actually.  The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson and As Always, Julia the letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto by Joan Reardon.



What's on my TV today: 
Right now it's  the Today show, but tonight is the new episode of The Closer that I'm super excited about.


On the menu for dinner:
Spaghetti with Meatballs, salad, and homemade bread.


On my To Do List:

Get the laundry finished

Clean the kitchen floor
Clean the bathroom


New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I'm dying to make chocolate croissants!



In the craft basket:
Right now, I'm working on a cute bird pillow softie.




Looking forward to this week:
Getting the whole family back on a schedule.


Tips and Tricks:
Take about 15 minutes everyday to pick up the counter tops and tables.  They seem to be our catch all areas.  Once they are picked up, I feel so much better and relaxed.


My favorite blog post this week: 
I, unfortunately, haven't been able to read any yet.


No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):







Lesson learned the past few days:
Be open to exploring new traditions.


On my mind:
Starting fresh and new on this new year.
