Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's getting warmer but I still can't complain since it's only in the 80s. I can't even remember a summer this mild.

Things that make me happy:
I would just love to have some quiet alone time for myself, by myself.

Book I'm reading:
None but I want to start reading Because of Winn Dixie with my daughter or start the Little House books with her. Guess I am getting in back to school mode.

What I'm enjoying on TV:
Kyle XY Season 1- I just discovered this show. I am so hooked. What is Kyle??? Why no belly button? Where is he from? Please don't tell me if you know. I have more DVDs coming in the mail from Netflix to find out.

On the menu for dinner:
Grilled Lemon Thyme Chicken
Grilled Potatoes
Grilled Zucchini Slices
Green Salad

On my To Do List:
It's Monday so I need to clean the bathrooms and there is one cupboard in the hallway I want to clean out so i can put towels in there.

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I made homemade pizza. I was very proud of myself and it was a lot easier than I thought it was.

In the craft basket:

The same knitting that has been there. I think it's a little too hot to be knitting.

Looking forward to this week:
Nothing...I don't have any plans. I just want to clean the house so maybe I am just looking forward to having a clean house.

Tips and Tricks:

My favorite blog post this week:
I haven't done any blog reading, I need to!!

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
I love baking blogs...I wish I had more time to bake plus the weather is not really right for turning on the oven. I found the blog Sweet Tarte to read until the fall...such lovely baked stuffs.

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

Lesson learned the past few days:
Always save any documents you are working on because they could be gone in seconds and you may not be able to get them back no matter what you do.

On my mind:
My moms health

  1. Hi!
    It's been way to hot to do baking here too. But I do my baking in the evening when it cools off. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  2. I can't help it, even when it's over 100 degrees outside I will still bake LOL

    I have heard of the Kyle XY show but haven't watched it yet, let me know what you think, I may just add it to my Netflix.
