Happy Homemaker Monday

Today I am linking up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom, for Happy Homemaker Monday.

d75a58b8dc30a275bb0ae1e281fdd130The Weather…

Is currently 32 C or 89 F, with clear blue skies, and not a speck of wind.

Things That Make Me Happy…

Packing for our next trip – less than a week to go!

As I Look Out My Window…

I see dawn beginning to inch across the sky, welcomed by a tree full of noisy galahs.

On My Reading Pile…

Confessions Of A Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Rigler. I am finding it very hard to get into this book to be honest, it is not quite as I imagined it would be, and so far seems very disjointed. Not sure I will actually finish it or not.

On My TV…

There is not a lot of choice on TV at the moment, so I have been re-watching old favourites. Currently trying to watch every episode in the Buffy franchise, a lot more than I remember there being!

On My Plate For Dinner Tonight…

Chicken and gravy pie with steamed vegetables and mashed potato.

On The Menu This Week…

Monday: Chicken and gravy pie with steamed vegetables and mashed potato.

Tuesday: Crumbed fish with steamed vegetables.

Wednesday: Baked chicken drumsticks with steamed vegetables.

Thursday: Crumbed fish with steamed vegetables.

Friday: Toad In The Hole with steamed vegetables.

Saturday: Steamed vegetables with cheese sauce.

Sunday: Soufflé baked potatoes.

On My To Do List…

Sew a patch onto a band uniform.

Finish writing the individualised scope and sequence for next years home-school curriculum.

Pack for our holiday.

Write 4000 words of my novel.

New Recipe I Want To Try Soon…

I am keen to try a mirror glaze recipe I have. Maybe this week if I get the chance.

In The Craft Basket…

I am currently trying to complete a piñata costume.

Looking Forward To This Week…

Mum should be coming home from hospital this week, after cancer treatment.

Tips And Tricks…

My lemon tree is always abundant, and instead of letting the lemons pile up in a bowl inside, I juice them as they ripen, and freeze them in ice cube trays. My freezer has a container full of lemon ice cubes, so whenever I reach for a glass of water I can easily pop one in. Also useful for cooking and baking.

On My Mind…

Life in general, my job that makes me discontent, and what I can do to change that.

Looking Around My House…

I am content. Apart from day to day housework, nothing major needs doing, which is a wonderful feeling.

From My Camera…

My son with the sculptures at Kew Gardens, UK.

England (2)

My Simple Pleasure…

A hot coffee and some quiet time first thing in the morning.
