Happy Homemaker Monday

I am linking up with Sandra from Diary of a SaHM for Happy Homemaker Monday!

The Weather:::   I'm loving the fall weather.  It was in the 30's last night!  The afternoons are in the mid-60's to lower 70's.  *love*

On my reading pile:::  I am about 1/2-way through two books this week - "A Year with Austen" about a woman who travels through South America having book groups and discussing Austen novels (true story) and "The Covenant" by Beverly Lewis. 

On my tv:::  I watched the 1st Glee episode for this season with my girls.  Other than that I watched season 1 of Criminal Minds on DVD.  
On the menu for this week::: 
Sunday  -  Spaghetti and Meatballs
Monday – Crockpot bbq ribs, green beans, brown rice w/ spinach
Tuesday -  Ham, scalloped potatoes and corn (also Crockpot!) 
Wednesday -  Chicken stir fry over brown rice
Thursday – Jake’s football game & then dinner with family
Friday -  Baked chicken legs and french fries, steamed broccoli and carrots
Saturday -  Dinner at my parents’ house

On my to do list::: 
The usual
Looking around the house:::  It's cool with the kitchen window open and it smells like cranberries from the burning candle in the entryway. 
From the camera:::  
Starting on Pride and Prejudice today for the homeschool book club.  I found this Jane Austen finger puppet and simply couldn't resist!
On my prayer list::: 
Friends from church
My best friend who is going through testing for breast lumps
Upcoming election & our country

Scripture:::  Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.  In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.   1 Peter 5:7-10 NLT
