Homemaker Daybook: Journal of a SAHM

The Clock Reads...

Weather in My Neck of the Woods 
Light gray overcast skies. Cool and comfortable. For now. Forecasted 86 degrees for later. (That's a bit too warm for me.)

In the Garden
It looks lush and productive! Even the peas have bounced back from previous encounters as snack food for the hens! I've got itty-bitty green pie pumpkins, the cucumbers are getting ready to flower and the 2nd crop of wax and green beans are growing.

Looking Around the House
All is quiet. Even the fans aren't whirring as it's under 70 degrees inside. 

Menu for this Week
Can I change this to menu for the DAY? I'm treating my wonderful husband to a special dinner for 2 tonight: Sweet BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Farm Fresh Corn on the Cob, his favorite Ramen Oriental Broccoli Salad, B & M Baked Beans, and Chocolate Poke Cake.

What's on my TV Today 
Nada! But I may watch something on Hulu at some point. Anything engaging on TV right now?

What I'm Creating from the Craft Basket
I'm finishing up my son's navy blue, bright red and white "ripples" afghan. I have 12 more rows and it is complete. Finally! And I'm super excited that my daughter wants a traditional Granny Square blanket. I've been wanting to create one!

I'm Reading

Things that Make Me Happy and Thankful
A supportive, loving family. Great friends. Money for the basics. A house to live in. A vehicle that runs. Food on the table. Chocolate.

I'm Wondering
What decluttering and organizing project I'll get to today? Perhaps the annoying overcrowded pots and pans cupboard...

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:9)
