Happy Homemaker Monday – 4/23/2012

Joining Sandra today:

The weather:::
52 degrees and sunny

On my reading pile::: 

Christian fiction:  The Forgiven Duke (for review)

On my TV:::
Disney Junior … as per usual each morning.  Later we’ll watch some George (Curious) or Cat & Mouse (Tom and Jerry).  My personal TV watching has been greatly reduced in the last few years!! 

On the menu for this week:::
Monday –  individual meatloaves (Frikadellen), mashed potatoes
Tuesday – something in the crockpot
Wednesday – eat at church
Thursday – chicken fajitas
Friday – boys fend for themselves; Ladies’Banquet catered meal for me & Anna 🙂

On my to do list:::

take down light fixture and remove faucet in my bathroom to replace … SOME DAY I will paint … but right now I’m researching vinyl tile flooring.  Need to make a trip to Lowe’s this week!! 
Looking around the house:::

I’m slowly tackling my “stack” hot spots (those places where piles of STUFF gather).  The only piles I have are of Labels for Education and Box Tops for Education that I need to count and sort and trim to turn in for our school’s fund-raising. 

From the camera:::

(not from MY camera) – The Great Smoky Mountains – LOVE THEM!!

Something fun to share:::

I set out a hummingbird feeder sometime last week … and FINALLY we have one hummingbird who visits each day.  In past years, we’ve had quite a few who come to feed, so I’m hoping this hummingbird will tell his friends.  I make my own hummingbird “food”:
3 parts water
1 part sugar
Boil and then let cool.  I add a few drops of red food color to attract the birds, but you don’t have to.

On my prayer list:::
still in a waiting phase for a lot of things (Army Reserve selection board results)
friends recovering from surgery and undergoing cancer treatment

Bible verse, Devotional::: 

Psalm 143:8

King James Version (KJV)
8Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
