HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

I can’t believe how quickly Monday seems to come with each new week. This past week seemed to fly by and I didn’t get everything on my to do list finished. Maybe this week will be more productive. I’m adding a new category this week – Quotable Quotes.  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.

HEALTH & BEAUTY TIPS

  • Mix a small amount of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide together until you have a paste.  
  • With a toothbrush scrub the paste into your nails.  
  • Add the remaining paste to enough warm water to cover your fingers and/or toes and let them sit 5-10 minutes.  
  • Rinse off and you have sparkling white nails.

HOMEMAKING TIP
Strong steeped tea makes a great permanent scratch cover for wood furniture.

ON MY MIND
Why is it that you no longer hear ” (insert name here) please pick up your children in the security office?  Not once, but twice while grocery shopping yesterday the same 3 young children (and I mean to young to not be with their parents – like 5 or 6) came racing around corners with racing empty carts bumping into people and almost knocking over an old lady.  When I was a kid these kids wold have been scooped up by a store employee and delivered to management to be picked up by their parents. 

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

  • Quiet time
  • Soft Chewy Cookies
  • Blue Skies with Fluffy white clouds

Another yummy sounding menu Tamy! And I'm so curious for an avocado egg roll in the future. That sounds wonderful!
