Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's snowy and cold.  I'm so ready for winter to be over.  

Things that make me happy: 
Getting sleep, which I haven't gotten in a few days.

Book I'm reading:
The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson

What's on my TV today: 
Secret Life of the American Teenager Season 2

On the menu for dinner:
I'm not exactly sure since we are doing a family get together.  What ever it is, I'm sure it will be tasty.

On my To Do List:

Clean the glass
Make the beds
Make brownies to go with dinner

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:

I've been dying to try Chicken Potpie

In the craft basket:
I'm trying to come up with something for my daughter's side of the room.

Looking forward to this week:
Hopefully warm weather so we can go to the park and get the rest of our flower bulbs planted

Tips and Tricks:
This may be obvious to some people but I didn't know this.  To help ease a fever in a child, get a washcloth wet with somewhat cold water and softly wipe their head, face, and neck with it.  Last night, Sydney had a fever.  We gave her tylenol and got no result but my husband said he remembered his parents doing this thing with the washcloth to his sister when she would get sick.  We tried it and it worked almost immediately.  The fever broke and she was asleep in no time.

My favorite blog post this week: 

Spaulding Family - Joy  She wrote a great post about letting go and leaving what you can't control to God and it was definitely inspiring.  While I don't consider myself a religious person, I'm definitely a spiritual person and think this is something that most people could use to help them in tough times.

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

Lesson learned the past few days:
I don't know if I really learned a lesson...  I'm sure I did, but I just can't think of what it was.

On my mind:
Taking a nap!  Haha!
