Happy Homemaker Monday – 1/9/2012

Joining Sandra today!

The weather:::

It is 37 degrees outside at almost noon today.  Brrrrrrr!!!  Thankful for the throw-blanket on my couch as I type this blog entry!!
On my reading pile:::
Finishing CABINET OF CURIOSITIES and will start my Bonhoeffer book.  (same as last week)
STILL in Psalms in my Read-Thru-the-Bible at my own pace – getting into the 120’s.  (Psalm 119 was long but such good reminders how important God’s Word is!!)
On my TV:::
Not much … just cartoons for Miriam.  Today it is something NEW to her:  Tom & Jerry.

On the menu for this week:::
oh dear … still haven’t gotten it together yet to menu plan.  😦 

On my to do list:::
Put away and organize my Christmas CDs.  I have a new CD player in my kitchen and hope to keep a basket with CDs nearby.  I am not a musical person, and often I just prefer SILENCE as I work … but I have found my thoughts get away with me if I get too introspective so maybe music WILL help fill my brain with POSITIVE thoughts instead of endless ruminations.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

I did my mending last night (finally)!!  Replaced a lost button, secured a few loose buttons, and sewed a tie back on Miriam’s dress … not too exciting but necessary!

Looking around the house:::
Cats sitting in the sunshine streaming in the window, Miriam wanting me to read a book RIGHT NOW because I’m obviously NOT paying attention TO HER!!   The clutter is currently tamed – but I need to do some deep cleaning & serious organizing!!

From the camera:::

Something fun to share:::
My 13 year old son and I might get to go to GERMANY over his Spring Break in March!!  I haven’t been back since 2005; my son was born in Wuerzburg, Germany, but we left when he was 4 months old and he hasn’t been back. 

My aunt invited my son to come visit her – and I feel the need to go with him!!  I just wish my whole family could go.  😦

I researched plane tickets last night – and in March the price is SO MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE than if we were to go in the Summer.   I can’t believe we might actually get to go THIS SOON!!  I already have my son’s passport pictures – now I need to go apply for his passport!  Mine is still good, thankfully.  🙂

On my prayer list:::
So many family and friends who are going through difficult times – divorce proceedings, divorce final, health issues, wayward children, etc etc …
So many family members who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus as they face their trials.  I don’t know how I could live without HIM. 
Bible verse, Devotional:::

Proverbs 11:3 – The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

The word perverseness here can be translated to mean DUPLICITY.
du·plic·i·ty (d-pls-t, dy-)

n. pl. du·plic·i·ties


a. Deliberate deceptiveness in behavior or speech.
b. An instance of deliberate deceptiveness; double-dealing.
2. The quality or state of being twofold or double.
