Happy Monday everyone.

The weather in my neck of the woods: cloudy and cool with scattered rain showers. I don’t think it even reached 60 degrees today.

Things that make me happy: Reading a good book

Book I’m reading: The Bible

Miss Match by Erynn Mangum

Moments with the Master by Denzil Holman

What’s on my TV today: Nothing

On the menu for dinner: Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan (The Chicken Parmesan was really good. the whole family liked it and the recipe will be added to our make again list.  note added 5/17)

On my To Do List:

Laundry

Homeschool

Mopping

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon: I haven’t found a new recipe to try this week yet.
In the craft basket. I’ve finally started back on my cross stitch Noah’s Ark.

Looking forward to this week: The one day of not too hot, not too cold and rainy weather we’re supposed to get this Thursday. I’m hoping we can do some work outside and have time for some family fun.

Tips and Tricks: Use white vinegar to kill weeds in your yard. Put it in an inexpensive spray bottle and spray it on the leaves and near the base of the plant you want to kill. Large weeds may take an extra application a few days later and it works best if you can time it so there won’t be rain for at least the next 12 to 24 hours. Not only is this cheaper than store bought weed killers it is also safer for your kids, your pets, and the environment.

My favorite blog post this week: Being a SAHM by Kristy at The Jensen Family Circus.

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):


Lesson learned the past few days: That I need to worry less about other people’s opinions.

On my mind: Praying about whether or not my family and I should move. Trying to figure out what we have left to do to finish up our homeschooling year.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.  John 4:24
