Trying Something New: Happy Homemaker Tuesday!

I'm a homemaker (and I work and teach from home too!) and since this comes from one of my sisters favorite blogs ever, Diary of a Stay at Home Mom I figured I would play along.

The weather in my neck of the woods:
At the moment it's 64 and sunny but according to the weather forecast it's supposed to be raining by 3pm and thunder storming by tonight for the umpteenth time this week!

Things that make me happy:
The fact that this morning I'm feeling better than I have in about 3 days!

Menu for this week: I haven't even started meal planning for the week but I do know at some point today or tomorrow I will be making butter horns, bread & tortillas!

What's on my TV today: I suppose at some point today will be The Simpsons, Sex in the City and of course Dora the Explorer! Lol

Looking around the house: I am so grateful for 10 minutes of cleaning every half hour - it makes keeping things clean more do-able!

On my to-do list: Take the Hubs to the doctor, pick up scripts, sort through more clothes, test 2 new recipes, make 2 dresses for Memorial Day Weekend for me & the little bug.

New recipe I want to try or am trying: Homemade Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

In the craft basket: 2 baby blankets & 3 dresses

Looking forward to this week: Getting our dresses finished, reading the mouse & the motorcycle with the kids again & baking!

Tips and Tricks: Use a lemon+baking soda to scrub your sink & stove top - It cleans it and it smells great :)

Blog Hopping: (a newly discovered blog I want to share): It's not a new discovery but it's one I love to read... Where the Roses Never Fade  is by my sister from another mister & fellow Angel Mom Jo and she almost always has something awesome!

Lesson learned the past few days: I REALLY need to take care of myself and make sure that I'm eating and taking my meds - life does NOT go well when I don't!

On my mind: My sis & nieces... The 17th was the girls birthday both here and in Heaven... I haven't seen Miss E in 5 years as of July 10th and 5 years makes a HUGE difference...  It's been almost 2 months since we lost my Mom and went home to say goodbye and since I was able to visit Riley's spot at the cemetery...  There have been a LOT of BAD storms here in Oklahoma recently including over 50 tornadoes since the start of April..   It's all just making me feel ever so much more homesick...  I'm ready to be back in Illinois again...
