Happy Homemaker Monday

Whoopsie, I seem to have forgotten to do this post last week, but I'm here now, and isn't that really what matters?


The weather in my neck of the woods:
It has been so rainy lately, but today, today seems beautiful.  

Things that make me happy: 
This literally just happened and if you follow me on twitter, you already know.  I'm sitting at the kitchen table, typing this post, and a hummingbird flew right up to the window.

Menu for this week:
I don't have one yet.  All I know is that probably tomorrow I will do Sweet and Sour pork chops with basmati rice and a veggie stir fry using zucchini noodles.

What's on my TV today: 
Maybe some Grace and Frankie.  Besides that, I'm not really sure.

Looking around the house:
I have a giant pile of laundry on the couch begging to be folded, a pile of dirty diapers demanding a wash and a dishwasher waiting for me to unload it and reload it with breakfast dishes.  

On my To Do List:
Sydney has dance this evening as well

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Oh there are so many but at this moment I'm not sure.

In the craft basket:
I need to make Sydney and Rylie's name banners for above their beds this week.  I've been promising it, just haven't had the time.  I need to make the time.  Also, I'm dying to get a little crocheting in.

Looking forward to this week:
It's Ben's last day of school!  Thursday afternoon our summer break will officially begin and I don't have to worry about not being able to do something because we have to pick someone up at a certain time!  Wooohooo watch out parks, museums, zoos, and berry farms.  You are no longer safe as the Tiemann family will be out for adventures.

Tips and Tricks:
I'm completely drawing a blank at the moment.  Darn it.
My favorite blog post this week: 
I have been a bad blog reader lately, but am ready to dig back in and read read read!

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
I love Percy and Grace .  Rebecca is so sweet and very real.  She's a fairly new mum (her daughter only turned a year old a month or two ago) and she and her husband have also been fixing up their beautiful home.  

No words needed (favorite photo or picture):

This little guy lives in between our house and the slab our house is built on.  He spends of and on all day sunning on our front porch and sidewalk.  

Lesson learned the past few days:
Oh there are so many, but to not bring people down, I'll go with, when things seem overwhelming and insane, hang on, just push through and you'll come out on the other side much more relaxed, and really just a better person.

On my mind:
Getting through this last week without losing my mind.  I think this week will be easier than last week though since Shawn is home, Sydney's already out of school and soccer is over for a few weeks.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:


Love the picture of the skink! I bet he's hoping for some drier, warmer weather as well. Hope you have a wonderful week!
