Happy Homemaker Monday 4/29/13

Happy Homemaker Monday

I found some lovely blogs this week, and decided to join in on this series. It gives me something to post about on Mondays, so why not? If you have a blog, you should join in.

The weather...

Ugh...the weather. Denver is all over the place, especially this time of year. We're getting sunburns in the garden and using the A/C in the car today. Wednesday we're expecting 2-4 inches of snow. Such is life in Denver. Look, as a native of Denver I'm used to it, but this year we are anxious for our garden to get going and worried about the frost killing some of our plants so... go away snow!

Right now I am...
Enjoying the cool morning air coming in the windows and listening to my children growl at each other.

That maybe I should really be getting ready for my day rather than writing this post. Nah.

On my reading pile...
Uh, I'm not much of a reader. I have a few unfinished books, but right now what is calling my name {nagging} is the Oriental Trading VBS catalog that I really need to go through and decide what to order.

On my TV...
We recorded Peter Pan for the girls to watch, and they loved it. But our DVR has been shockingly empty as of late, probably due to the fact that Justin decided to cut our satellite bill last month and now we have very basic programming. It's a good thing...though I miss all the Showtime movies and the Science Channel {we loved How It's Made and such}.

Blog Hopping {a newly discovered blog}...
Diary of a Stay at Home Mom, the blog that inspired this post. Good pictures, good cooking, lots of family, and some crafting. Everything I like in a blog.

On the menu this week...
Thanks to meal planning, we're looking forward to:
Baked Chicken & Broccoli
Cincinnati Chili {making this for the first time, the recipe intrigues me}
Bourbon Spiced Pork with Sweet Potatoes
A Freezer Meal {Chicken Enchiladas}
Fish Sticks & Fries {I work in what I call a "white trash meal" every week or so, they're easy and kid pleasing}

On my to do list:
Re-organize Pyrex, it's gotten out of control and messy
Get Justin to put up new/thrifted bookshelf in girls room
Work on the spring cleaning list {it's huge}
Plan next week's meals & shopping list

In the craft basket...
Still working on the crocheted blanket for Paxton.

Looking forward to this week...
The first Paris Street Market is Saturday! Justin works Saturdays, but I like to get up extra early and go first thing in the morning just by myself, then I'm back in time to take him to work and Eisley to ballet class. Hope I find some rare Pyrex...

Looking around the house...
Lately, I think it's cleaner than I give myself credit for. Last week my mom stopped by and said, "Your house looks spotless!" But I thought it looked trashed and saw messes everywhere. I think I'm nesting, and I notice every single little mess {plus, I know what is actually going on behind the closed doors of our closets right now, and it ain't pretty} but really it's cleaner than I think of it at least. That should make me feel better, but it doesn't.

From the camera...

On my prayer list...
The weight of the world. I've had a little anxiety lately. About everything.

Bible verse/devotional...
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen." - 1 Peter 5:7-11

Have a lovely week!
