Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:

Cloudy and cold. It is 26 degrees right now...A definite change from a year ago when it was sunny and in the upper 60's.

Things that make me happy:
Snow. A husband that gives practical gifts. :D

Book I'm reading:
BROKE by Glenn Beck; Never Say Diet by Chantel Hobbs; The Rising (prequel to Left Behind) by Tim LaHaye

What's on my TV today:

On the menu for dinner:
I have no idea yet

On my To Do List:

Clean the house up, do laundry, get the Christmas stuff put away

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:

In the craft basket:
Nothing necessarily in the basket. I need to clean up from the last minute Christmas gift frenzy.

Looking forward to this week:
Getting my house back in order and making some goals for 2011

Tips and Tricks:
Don't let your laundry pile up!!! I am not looking forward to getting in there and getting busy on the laundry...

My favorite blog post this week:
A homeschool blog...I can't remember which blog it was...but she was talking about how we each kind of play a part in 'The Christmas Carol' around Christmas. I realized I was being rather Scrooge-ish, so I tried to change real quick before Christmas.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Don't Waste Your Homemaking

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):
I've got no pictures uploaded right now...

Lesson learned the past few days:

That I really need to get organized and get some sort of schedule going for homeschooling. I cannot deal with chaotic running around. I just don't function well like that, and the kids NEED a routine.

On my mind:
Too much to share right now

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1


  1. Great list Anna, I enjoyed reading it!

  2. I am right there with you on the routine!! It's so easy to get out of it...especially around Christmas.

    Have a Happy New Year!!

  3. I'd love to hear what you think about The Rising - I really enjoyed Left Behind and I didn't know there was a prequel!
