HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

I can’t believe it is Monday already. It was not a real busy week, but it sure went by quickly. 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.  

 WEATHER OUTSIDE
Temperatures have dropped 20 degrees and it’s gray and cloudy and supposed to rain. We had a spectacular thunderstorm last night complete with wind, heavy rain, dancing lightning and hail.

TO DO FOR THE WEEK
Several appointments and shopping that will make this week swim by really fast.

CURRENTLY READING
I’ve been reading a fun series from Jana Deleon, Miss Fortune series. Unfortunately I’m now at the end of that and waiting for the next installment (Book #7) and have started her MudBug series.  Book #1 is free at Amazon right now. This is a perfect series for a light summer read.

HEALTH & BEAUTY TIPS

HOMEMAKING TIP

  1. Lay a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil under your ironing board.  Iron as normal.  The foil reflects the heat back up and cuts your ironing time in half.
  2. When you are ready to rearrange your furniture, fold pieces of aluminum foil into thick squares to put under the legs of your furniture – works as well as those expensive furniture movers.
If you live your life with kindness and give other people great energy, that beauty and great energy come back to you. ~BEYONCE

ON MY MIND
Daddy used to say you can’t teach people common sense.  Now I know he was right, but that you also can’t seem to teach them math either.

I read a facebook post over the weekend that left me thinking that we (as a society) are in for a world of hurt.  It was about someone trying to have someone else thrown out of a garage sale group for “gouging” other.  The one being thrown out was selling a case of 48 items for $12.  The upset person was ticked off because that worked out to $4 each for $192.  WTH?  I know I thought the same thing.  To make things worse people started agreeing with the buyer and saying the seller was not doing math correctly.

When you quit laughing realize these people vote and may be responsible for something you’re involved in.

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

  • Quiet time
  • A good movie trilogy on a lazy day
  • Laundry that folds itself

Thanks Carrie! Click on the snicker doodle treasures above and it will take you to one of the dreamiest cookies recipes I've ever made. They were a HUGE hit at Christmas time.

LOL I'm sure the self folding laundry is on the shelf next to the canned energy, but dang if I can find the right store.

Sounds like the folks in that sales group need to take a remedial math course. I love the photo! We've had a cold, cloudy day (saw the sun early and then, it was gone) but so far no rain. I'm hoping we both see a lot more sun this week. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Hi Tamy!
Happy Monday!!

More yummy things planned I see and I HAVE to know what snickerdoodle treasures are – they sound magical! 😉

You always have such great tips – love that. I also love the things that make you happy….especially the self folding laundry. If you've found some please share!! Ha!

And you're right about some folks being awfully scary in this world. Yikes! I pray a lot to try to compensate. I'm only kind of joking. 🙂
