Happy Homemaker Monday

The Weather:::
It's 73 degrees today.  We're getting ready to go to the park here in the next few minutes.

Right now I am: 

Watching silly reality TV and looking through cookbooks while the kids finish their lunch.


I could really use a nap, but I have no time.    

On my reading pile:::
Haven't had much opportunity to read for me, but when I do I've been reading Widow of Larkspur Inn.  I've also started reading Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder to the kids at bed time.  

On my tv:::
Ripper Street and hopefully some Chicago Fire with my husband this evening.

Favorite Blog post this week (mine or other):::
I've not been doing a whole lot of blog reading this week

Homemaking Tips:::
I have nothing...

Looking around the house:::
My house is fairly clean if you look past the basket of clean clothes to be folded in the hallway and the dishes in the sink... And the cookbooks on the kitchen table. 

From the camera:::

On my prayer list:::
My family and friends.

Bible verse, Devotional:::
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you know how you should respond to each one.

I have to work on my menu plan today, I don't even know what I'm making tonight and that is freaking me out lol

I've read the books you're reading, and enjoyed them :)

Also loving Ripper Street.

Hope you're having a good week.

I can imagine being freaked out by not knowing what's for dinner tonight. Usually those nights we grab some dinner if I haven't already planned it.

I'm glad I picked back up The Widow of Larkspur Inn. Also, the little house on the prairie books have always been a favorite of mine. I remember my mom reading them to me and my little sister when we were very young. I used to run around in the tall grass in the field next to our house and pretend to be Laura. I've always been obsessed by Laura Ingalls Wilder so it's fun to see how my kids are loving the books too.
