Happy Homemaker Monday

Happy Homemaker Monday

As I look outside my window:::
Currently it's a beautiful 73 degrees and cloudy as it's been raining this morning.

Right now I am::: 
Drinking some coffee and watching Heartland.

Thinking and pondering:::
Just trying to relax a little.  I'm wearing myself thin and definitely not sleeping enough.

On my bedside table:::
A huge pile of books, a couple of magazines and the tv remotes.

What I am creating:::

I have a blanket going with 1 1/2 more rows to go and then edging and I've started a corner to corner to try and mix things up a bit.

My simple pleasure:::
Scrubbing pots and pans steel wool.  I don't know why, but I find it very therapeutic!   

Homemaking tips::: 
I don't know if this works for everyone, but it does for me.  When I need to get motivated and get cleaning, I turn my music on (I use the rdio app on my phone and play it over our block rocker) and crank it up.  Next thing I know, I'm dancing, singing at the top of my lungs and cleaning like crazy.

Looking around the house:::
The kids have some picking up to do. They have toys all over their room and living room floors.  I have a very large pile of laundry to fold in the hallway, but other than that, it's nice and comfy.  Now to pack up because we move the first weekend in July.

From the camera:::

Prayer List:::
My husband who is traveling this week.  My sister and her kids continue to be in my prayers as well.

Bible verse, Devotional:::
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27

I love Heartland and Sister Wives! I don't suppose you'd like to come over and scrub my pots and pans?? LOL Have a great week!

I think everyone I read these days is moving or has just moved. =) I don't envy you in the least.

I do however love the gnome and would just die to have one in my front flower beds by the mail box.

I love to listen to music to get my groove back when cleaning house. I get lost in the rhythms and before I know it I'm done.

Just one more day and you will have your hubby with you :)

I agree with the music to clean, I always seem to get more done if the radio is on.

Are you also doing a corner to corner granny?
