Happy Birthday, Dad!!

Today is my Dad's birthday so I am just gonna say "Happy Birthday, Dad!"

We had a great day at my parents house celebrating several birthdays actually but today happened to be his actual birthday. Tomorrow is mine, Halloween is my Mom's birthday and November 2nd is my son Jake's birthday. Nothing like having birthday dinner for 4!! It was a terrific meal, great company, and great presents of course! LOL

Happy Homemaker Monday!


Sandra over at Diary of a Stay-at-Home Mom does this every Monday and I thought I would join in this time!

The weather in my neck of the woods: Wonderful, wonderful! Some sunshine, about 55 degrees now, but was 44 this morning when I took the boys to school. Love it love it!

One of my simple pleasures: Driving in my car with the sunroof opened some, even if it's cold, I just turn on the seat heater and the car heater!

On my bedside table: Or I guess on my Kindle, SOuth of Broad by Pat Conroy, Clive Cussler book (can't remember the name) My mom borrowed my Kindle for their recent trip to France so now I have a few books on there she wanted that I can read!

On my TV: Got to catch up from last week. Since I had a big test on Friday, I didn't watch Greys or Trauma or CSI: Miami or even the Amazing Race from last night, so I have some catching up to do.

On the menu for tonight: Ummmm chicken maybe?

On my To Do List: Count fundraiser money at elementary school, Mop the kitchen floor, finish decorating for Halloween.... Handbell practice tonight

New Recipe I tried last week: Peanut butter Cookies with Reeses in the middle... chocolate and peanut butter, what's not to like?

In the craft basket: a couple of quilts to finish piecing, a tote bag to make for me that's brown and teal

Looking forward to
: Handbells tonight, substitute teaching tomorrow

Homemaking Tip for this week: Teach your children to do the housework so they will be self-sufficient adults and the burden will not fall on the mother always!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): I always read The Pioneer Woman and her post about chicken parmesan had me drooling... dinner maybe?

Favorite photo from last week: Ryan on the right in black and Jake on the left in brown playing with their band at a music festival

Lesson learned the past few days: Don't wait until the morning the fundraiser money is due to start making sure the orders are right : (

On my Prayer List: Friends and family

That's all, I hope everyone has a great week!!
