Homemaker Monday ~ 7/22/13

Come join Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Weather...

A breezy 75F but warming up quickly!

Right Now I Am...

Cooling down after my walk.  Need caffeine....

Thinking...

Of the fact that I need to run to the store in order to get some caffeine (Dr. Pepper).

On My Reading Pile...


Vision in White (Bride Quartet, #1)


I started this a few days ago and haven't been able to get back to it.  I don't know if it is because I'm not that into the book or because I've been busy.  I'll give it another go today.

On My TV...


Last evening, after Church, we caught up on MasterChef.  It is now down to the top 8!

  2. Love camping and we're actually making plans to go very soon :)

    I used to read Nora Roberts all the time, but it's been many many years, I might have to pick that book up at the library and give it another go :)

    Hope you enjoy the camping trip :)

  3. We go camping almost each weekend. We "cheat" and keep our camper at a camp ground year round. So there is not a lot of putting up and tearing down.

    That zebra set is adorable!!
