the fact that my 17 year old daughter will sit down happily chatting with me and her Dad watching the Waltons

Book I am reading:
hopefully Masquerade by BJ Hoff

What I am enjoying on TV:
The Waltons
hopefully Selling Houses Australia Extreme that I think starts on Wednesday, where they sell old messy houses I think

On the menu for dinner:
an old cheap standby
Mexican Macaroni Cheese

On my To Do list:
just stuff to do with money

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I liked the look of Shaker Lemon Pie

In the craft basket:
same pair of curtains

Looking forward to this week:
there is nothing on my calendar all week. The best thing that could happen to me is that Penelope Wilcock's book will arrive in the mail, The Road To Blessing

Tips and tricks:
we have had to substitute yoghurt for sour cream and cream twice lately, and didn't realise notice, it was nice I thought, in main meals, the frittata was very impressive
Ham, Leek & Rocket Frittata
Taco Salad with Sour Cream Dressing

My favourite blog post this week:

A link to a video that is SO worth watching. You can find it at Ember (Penelope's) blog here
A post that includes a picture of a quilt frame. I have read about them in novels, but I am amazed at it, here
Salvos Online review here
a Valentine's video at Relz Reviews

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
today I found a site for gorgeous pumpkin decorations that looks Australian The Enchanted Hollow. I also like on her other blog Nana's Recipe Book, the pictures make you want some now!

No words needed:
you can see what job we need to do next on our other house. We have done the plumbing, painted the window, weeded and painted the fence. Now the wall and part of the verandah wood out the back.

Lesson learned the past few days:

On my mind:

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
nothing, just videos others have posted, with songs

This meme is from Sandra's blog.
