Journal of a SAHM: The End of Summer

The Clock Reads...

Weather in My Neck of the Woods 
We're heading into another warm, sunny summer day.

In the Garden
The carrots have been harvested. The cucumbers are growing like weeds. The pumpkins are ripening. The peas and beans are dying. The season is wrapping up.

Looking Around the House
My daughter squeeled about a BIG wolf spider she found walking up the wall in the staircase. But the boys continue to slumber away.

Menu for this Week
Grilled cheeseburgers with sauteed onions (and bacon if I go shopping later). Spaghetti and meatballs in a chunky veggie sauce. 2 days is all I've got for you!

What's on my TV Today 
Big Brother. I know, I know - Reality TV at its worst! But I'm hooked until Survivor, The Amazing Race and The Voice start again.

What I'm Creating from the Craft Basket

I'm Reading

Things that Make Me Happy and Thankful
I thank God every day for my loving husband and wonderful kids. A blessing for sure!

I'm Wondering
 On Wednesday our 12th year of homeschooling begins. Are we ready?

I can do all things through Christ which strenghteneth me. (KJV Philippians 4:13)


 I'm linking up tThe Simple Woman at The Simple Woman's Daybook and to the Diary of a Stay At Home Mother at Happy Homemaker on Mondays.


  1. Big Brother is one of my guilty pleasures... as well as other stupid reality TV shows! LOL Cute hats!! Have a fun week!

    1. Thanks, Jodi! I'm glad you stopped by. My week has started off productive!

  2. LOL! I squealed with delight at finding others who share my guilty pleasure. I so want James to win! Who is your favorite? Your hats are very cute. Soon, we will need them to keep our ears warm. Have a great week!

    1. Isn't James a hoot? And the scaring everyone is awesome! I like Johnny Mac too. He's odd and out there which makes him entertaining. Evict the twins, Austin and Vanessa!

  3. After dealing with a childhood of verbal abuse, Philippians 4:13 has become one of my life verses. Thanks for that reminder today! We got rid of our TV in 2005, but we do watch a couple of shows online - The Voice is one of them :)
    Hope you have a fabulous week!

  4. The hats are cute! Are you liking the book? I started reading that one but ended up abandoning it.

  5. You're really good at those hats! They're lovely!
