HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

Been another long week for us here.  Hubby had surgery last week for a massive shoulder tear that included 3 tendons last week so I’ve been busy playing nursemaid making sure he does what he is supposed to, but really making sure he doesn’t do what he isn’t supposed to.  He’s supposed to stay “immobile” for 6 weeks before beginning physical therapy and we’re coming up on 2 weeks complete.  I can’t wait for May 26th!!!!!!!!!!!

Be sure to link up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday and with Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

HOMEMAKING TIP
Add your lemon, orange, lime and grapefruit rinds to the garbage disposal to help freshen it.

HEALTH & BEAUTY TIP

  • Use a small demitasse spoon to curl your lashes.  Run the spoon under hot water so that it is warm to the touch. Place the edge on the spoon at the base of the lashes and gently push upward.  Apply a coat of mascara. Repeat the warm spoon action. Apply second coat of mascara.

ON MY MIND
Why is it that no one walks straight across in the main rows of parking lots? Have we become so lazy that we find it necessary to walk at an angle to get from point A to point B all the while keeping traffic from flowing as they wait for the pedestrian to get across?  And why is everyone NOT looking as they enter the aisle when leaving stores?

Just because pedestrians have the right of way does not mean they don’t also have the responsibility to look before walking out in front of cars!  And don’t even get me started on the idiots looking at their phones instead of watching where they are walking – especially the ones with children!

Hope your husband has a speedy recovery! I was chuckling a bit reading the on my mind bit up there. My husband's pet peeve is people who walk down the middle of the parking lot rows. Beautiful Iris in your photo, ours have not quite bloomed.

Prayers that your hubby heals up extra quick! 😉
