Happy Homemaker Monday

As I look outside my window:::
It's 72 degrees and cloudy.  They are saying it could rain today.  I'd be ok with that.

Finishing a cup of coffee, typing this up, and watching last nights Return to Amish.

What I am creating:::

My blanket.  I'm getting so close to being done.

My simple pleasure:::
Cleaning.  I'm not talking about picking up, but I'm talking real, get in there, deep cleaning. 

Homemaking tips::: 
To get rid of stains from coffee or tea in your mugs, make a paste of baking soda and lemon juice. Put the paste onto the stain and let sit for a while then rinse. (I also use this for stains on my counter tops.)

Looking around the house:::
My house is clean except for the corner where Rylie's toys stay in the living room.  I can't wait to move and not have them in the living room anymore.  Ben and Sydney are laying on the floor behind the couch, by the kitchen watching shows on their iPads.  Rylie, who isn't feeling well, is laying on the couch watching Adventure Time and coughing like crazy.  Scotland, is cuddled up in her boppy on the couch next to me, taking a nap.

From the camera:::
Playing with bubble guns outside.

Prayer List:::
My sister.  My husband as he travels.

Bible verse, Devotional:::
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

Hi Liz,

Sounds like another busy week and weekend! I remember all the weekends when the kids were in elementary school going to birthday parties in between sports and dance!! They went to a small Catholic elementary/middle school and only had classes with 12 or so kids in them in each grade - we all went to everyone's birthday parties! So much fun - like an extended family. I didn't know you were moving, good for you! Hope it all goes smoothly, eventually all those boxed get unpacked, and if they don't get unpacked then you probably don't need the things inside them, lol. You'll probably end up purging things like Sandra is doing. Have a great week - my school year is winding down, looking forward to hanging out this summer with my friends and family.
Take Care,
