Happy Homemaker Monday ~ Week 9


On my bedside table:
Addition. Absolutely fascinating. It's about a woman who has OCD. I mean serious OCD. Almost debilitating OCD. I'm about 3/4 of the way through ! It's a hard to put down sort of book ... except that I've been busy so I've had to put it down.

On my TV:
Nothing. Didn't even turn it on tonight ....

On the menu for tonight:
We've already eaten ... the recipes are on my food blog.

Pollo en Salsa de Ajo (Chicken in Garlic Sauce)

Photobucket

Patatas Alioli (Garlic Potatoes)

On my To Do List:
We drove back from Brisbane today. We were at a wedding yesterday, then the kids went home with Rory's sister and brother in law, while we went to the reception. It was a late night for us !! This morning we took the kids for a Macca's breakfast, looked at a bazillion furniture shops (need bunk beds for the kids room), went to Toy World and let the kids each pick a toy. Jono got a model tank, Alia got a doll stroller. The rest of the day, we pretty much relaxed. The kids played, I did some painting in my new 'studio' ... I'll post some photos soon !! :)

New Recipe I tried last week:
Chargrilled Salmon with Asparagus in lime vinaigrette. The recipe will be on my cooking blog this week ...

In the craft basket:
There's lots in it ... there's just not much getting done !! I did do some painting today though ...

Looking forward to:
Seeing Rory's parents tomorrow night.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
I'm really bad at these homemaking tips !
No, that's not my tip.
I just couldn't leave it blank.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Tokio Templins ... by my Dad.

Favorite photo from last week:
I haven't actually posted this photo yet but it's my favorite !! I will probably do a post tomorrow to tell you all about the wedding and share a few photos ! But here's one of my sweet husband that I took while we were waiting around for him to get his bazillion trillion professional photos taken ... since he was in the bridal party.

Photobucket

Lesson Learned The Past Few Days:
I'm selfish. But ... I'm glad that I didn't let my selfishness get the better of me ... I would have missed out on a precious memory if I had !

On My Prayer List:
My husband who is STILL working crazy hours.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Psalm 4:3b ... the Lord will hear when I call to Him ...

Happy Monday everyone !

You were very nice taking the kids to all the fun places while you were in the city. Was it a long drive home? We usually get into the car and want to keep going.
