Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's been nice and warm, but the wind has been crazy and a tad chilly.
Things that make me happy: 
Spending time outside.


Book I'm reading:
The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson
I've really only ready about 2 pages since last week.

What's on my TV today: 
I'm honestly not sure.  Usually I watch last nights TV from my DVR, but I watched my shows last night.  Tonight, new Secret life of the American Teenager, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Bethenny Ever After.


On the menu for dinner:
Egg Sandwiches on homemade bread.

On my To Do List:
Vacuuming
Sweeping
Dusting
Baking bread
Dishes
Laundry 
Baking muffins
I have a long to do list today... and I'm stalling on getting started.  It's just so cold in this house that I'm happier snuggled up on my couch in front of the TV in a fleece blanket.

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
There are so many that I'm looking to try but nothing specific I can think of off the top of my head.


In the craft basket:
Well, I need to sand down the metal rack that's next to our bed and the one that is over the toilet in the bathroom so I can paint them.  Exciting stuff, I know.  After this, I'm hoping to stain the kids dresser and find new knobs for it.  Hopefully I can get to some part of this, this week.


Looking forward to this week:
Getting ready for Easter.  Egg dying among lots of other fun activities.


Tips and Tricks:
If your shower curtain liner is moldy or mildewy, instead of throwing it away and buying a new one, throw it in the washer with some towels.  The towels will help to scrub it clean.  Hang it up to dry.


My favorite blog post this week: 
Nerdy Apple Bottom - I beg to differ  She has no problem saying how she feels and I admire that.  This specific post, she talks on a subject that has recently been all over the news because of a J Crew ad that has caused quite a stir.  


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





Lesson learned the past few days:
This is always a hard question for me.  I know there are life lessons I learn everyday.  Many actually, but to recall them is difficult.  I guess the latest one that I can think of is that there will always be people waiting for you to fail.  Don't give them the satisfaction because when you succeed instead of failing, you'll find there are also people cheering you on you may not have known about.

On my mind:
Right now I'm thinking about all of my housework and how I need to get up and get motivated, but I'm so warm right here.  If I get it all done, I'll feel much better though.  I always feel wonderful when my house is clean.
