Happy Homemaker Monday


The weather in my neck of the woods:
It was supposed to be 1 oC last night which is around 30 oF.

Things that make me happy:
I asked my youngest daughter how the dog behaved on the wood collecting expedition. It is a big deal because our second son is at uni now, so the two youngest went. We were worried they wouldn't. They both helped, and by all accounts the dog was a very good boy for a nearly two year old, maybe he is growing up. Anyone who has a German Shorthaired Pointer, a very large one may know what I mean. He chewed on a cow bone. How come cow dogs don't seem to do that?

Book I am reading:
I may read Beverly Lewis The Preacher's Daughter

What I am enjoying on TV:
River Cottage - Winter's On The Way
Economy Gastronomy

On the menu for dinner:
Chilli Bean Casserole with Herby Dumplings

On my To Do list:
To go to the hairdressers with my daughter about styling her hair for the deb ball, a consultation

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Black eyed Beans/Peas & Vegetable Soup

In the craft basket:
The same pair of trousers as last time

Lesson learned the past few days:
That Glee have redone the song Sweet Caroline

To see original Neil Diamond (when he was really young) see below. There is also one by Elvis.

On my mind:
I changed my mind about the two videos above, thought they don't fit the post, but still want them for me to watch

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Things I have seen blog hopping and watching the music videos

Hi Linda,
My girls have really been getting into Glee lately. They watch the episodes on their computer. I very much enjoyed that rendition of "Sweet Caroline" by them.

Also, I guess it really is a small world, as I have known Renee of Little Earthling photography for about thirteen years. They live about half an hour away from us.

Renee has a lovely personality.

Hi Linda
Sounds like you have a busy week ahead. Are you enjoying a day off today?
I like this meme - especially the blog links - what a fun way to visit other blogs!
Have a great day & week ahead.
Renata :)

You have a very varied and interesting week, Linda.
Cooling down in your area, it is still about 16C overnight here.

It does seem very relaxing.
