Favorite photo from the camera::::
I've been working so hard on my kitchen.  I'm in love with my baker's rack that my husband got me for my birthday.

Homemaking Tip::::
This might be silly and something a lot of people do already, but when you buy clothes at the store, take the price tags off of them as soon as you get home.  Up until recently I had a bad habit of just folding them and putting them away, then when we'd put them on we'd take the tags off and tagging barbs and tags would be left all over our house.

Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
I'm still back visiting where I've come from. I've been reading my blog from the beginning.  Also, I'm so in love with the Curlew Country Blog. The pictures are amazing and she has an adorable family.

Praying for::::
Shawn as he travels this week to St. Louis and then to Buffalo.  

Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::

I love the bakers rack too, it is so cute :)

I love your tip, I also sometimes forget to get the tags out and then wonder why I'm getting stabbed lol

Hope you have a great week.
I had to skip the rest of the post after I saw what you were reading to say, Welcome to the family!! OMG those books are the most amazing works of fantasy fiction I've read in such a long time. They are a close tie with Lord of the Rings on the epic scale.

Now I'll go read the rest of the post.

I love the bakers rack, so pretty.

I try to take the tags off all out clothes at one time and toss them into the bag they came out of, if not those horrible plastic pieces end up everywhere.

Have a great week.
