Happy Homemaker Monday


The Weather:::
Clear and warm. Just like May.

Right Now I Am:::
Helping hubby out at the shoe shine stand.

What a mess I left at the house. I used to do lots of cleaning on Mondays but now that I help at the stand it gets backed up. Oh well; at least I don't have to look at the mess until we get home.

On My Reading Pile:::
The San Diego Reader is a free weekly newspaper. I seem to be able to make it through a few short articles by the end of the week.

On My TV:::
Sigh. American Idol.

Favorite Blog Post This Week:::
I'm still trying to catch up on blogs.

Something Fun To Share:::
I never have anything fun to share, but I have something up my sleeve. Stay tuned and I should be ready to unveil it soon...

On The Menu For This Week:::
Monday- Posole
Tuesday- Mini Meat Loaves
Wednesday- Ham and Cheese Casserole
Thursday- Italian Beef Sandwiches
Friday- Fish Sticks and Tots
Saturday- Whatever
Sunday- Oh So Good Chicken Casserole

On My To Do List:::
continue to weed out the kids outgrown clothes. I got two boxes done yesterday. I still have two dressers and four boxes to go.

What I am Sewing, Crocheting, Knitting, or Creating:::
I'm thinking about finishing my unfinished projects: fleece blanket, baby quilt, and shrinky-dink lamp.

Homemaking Tips:::
I have a small spiral notebook where I keep my weekly menus. On Fridays I write next week's menu on one page. As I pick a meal, I write the things I need to shop for on the next page. When my shopping list is done I tear it out but leave the menu. Then on a Friday when I'm too busy to make a menu I can just look back and pick a pre-made one.

Looking Around The House:::
We're thinking about moving and renting out our house so now all I see are the things we need to fix. There's a hole in the bathroom ceiling, the carpet needs to be removed or replaced, paint needs to be touched up. So much work. Maybe we'll just stay. 

From The Camera:::
Nothing this week.


  1. I love your homemaking tip! I used to do that and it really did make things easier. I forgot all about it and need to get back into it. Especially when crazy hectic weeks roll around it can make meal planning/grocery list writing all the more easier.
    Since I have written my Happy Homemaker post and visited a few blogs my children have taken every toy they own out so now I'm off to clean up. What can take hours to clean takes only seconds to destroy. Simply amazing. LOL
    Hope you have a good week!

  2. LOL I love your Saturday menu "whatever".

    That's a great homemaking tip :)

    Hope you have a great week :)
