Happy Homemaker Monday 3-29-10

Thanks Sandra for hosting this meme)

The weather in my neck of the woods:








rain 10%


rain 20%

Things that make me happy:
Being married to my husband, the sound of my husband's voice, hot cocoa on a cold day, the smell of freshly cleaned linens

Book I'm reading:
Passionate Housewives Desperate For God, Bible (NIV), Taste of Home magazine

What I'm enjoying on TV:
Little Women animated series (on Smile of a Child network), MI-5, Grey's Anatomy, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

On the menu for dinner:
Freezer find...going to go through the meat freezer to see what I come up with

On my To Do List:
Clean house, steam the floors, laundry, re-inventory the freezer (but who knows how much will actually get done)

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I found a wine called Sweet Pea that is a blend of apple and peach. The label stood out to me, so I thought it would be something that would be great for using in a chicken dish. Not sure what yet, but since I've had the bottle for over a month now, I figure one day soon I'll create a dish with it.

In the craft basket:
Need to reorganize my fabric and sewing supplies

Looking forward to this week:
Plenty of sunshine

Tips and Tricks:
Line a casserole dish with a sheet of aluminum foil. Pour in 1/2 - 1 c. warm water and salt. Place tarnished silverware inside dish and make sure they are completely submerged. The salt will begin to 'react' to the silver and within 5-10 minutes (depending upon the amount of tarnish) you should have clean, tarnish free silverware.

My favorite blog post this week:
Not really a blog post but I thought it was an interesting video

log Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):

Bed & Breakfast Travel Blog
Blog of places bed and breakfast travelers may wish to visit. Points of interest, travel tips, meet innkeepers

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

Lesson learned the past few days:
You can't get a different result by doing the same 'ol thing. So to get something you've never had, you have to do something you've never done.

On my mind:
Too much to write about to say the least

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
I Peter 3: 8-12 "Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil."
