Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Its 80 degrees and partly cloudy with light winds


One of my simple pleasures:
My husband kissing me each morning as I am sleeping before he goes to work.
I am still reading Going Home the 1st book of The Brides of Webster County Series by Wanda E. Brunstetter but hope to finish it today.


On my bedside table:
The same as last week tissue, lotion, candle, lamp, a glass bowl that holds chapstick and hair ties. An Upcycled candy sprinkles contained that now contains chocolate and a fabric placemat.


On my TV:
Nothing


On the menu for tonight:
Tonight we are having leftovers but I have our menu for this week posted here.


On my To Do List:
My daily cleaning schedule such as laundry, dishes, and cleanings up the kitchen. My focus room for this week will be the bathroom.

My little office organizing project is done so check out the before and after pictures. I am still working in the basement on my extra kitchen storage this week.

This week I will also be working on cleaning the yard for fall. I have a couple plants I need to put in, move two small trees, clean the window wells, mulch the swing area, pull weeks in the garden, pull weed and mulch the propane tank area.



New Recipe I tried last week:
I tried Eggplant Parmesan My family loved it but I added a little too much sauce and needed more cheese & Eggplant Skillet Dinner which tasted like taco meat without the taco.

In the craft basket:
I am making a welcome sign for my daughter Nastasja & I to hang in our booth at the Farmers Market. We found some punched metal at a yard sale with a sheet already done with “Welcome” and hens on it so I have painting and hammering to do.

I am still working on the Mary Engelbreit embroidery project called “Sentiments in Suede” from her book “Wrap It Up Gifts to Make Wrap and Give”.
Looking forward to:
I am look forward to working in the yard this week prepping for fall.

Do not start too many projects at once do one and then move on.
