Happy Homemaker Monday

How the heck is it already Monday again? I’m not sure but I do know that it means that it’s Happy Homemaker Monday here on this blog, a project which is hosted by Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Here’s what is going on right now in my world.

The weather:::

This week’s weather in San Francisco is typical for this time of year as we enter our rainy season.

On my reading pile:::  

KaChing: How to Run an Online Business that Pays and Pays

Unexpected Crochet For The Home; I reviewed this one and am now working from it

On my TV:::

In addition to the usual stuff, I’ve added a few new TV shows to what I’m watching:

Did you know that I’ve written a book on the Ghosts of Alcatraz?

On the menu for this week:::

I went to the Japanese supermarket a few days ago and it turns out that they have a great selection of thinly cut meats. I rarely cook meat but I picked up some beef as well as some pork so I’m going to try my hand at doing something with that this week. I’ll probably make a stir fry one day and just a rice bowl with veggies and beef the other day. We’ll see.

On my to do list:::

  • Dentist appointment (sad face)
  • Do a proposal for a crochet magazine story
  • Resume regular exercise routine

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

  • Wrapping up my work on my 2011 photo scrapbook
  • Frogging and fixing the crochet dress I was working on last week
  • Crocheting mittens for charity (going to Bridge and Beyond)

Looking around the house:::

Uh oh … my comfy couch looks just as bad as it did when I reported last week. Still covered with junk to be sorted through. How did a whole go by without dealing with it? I think this is how hoarding starts!

From the camera:::

Sometimes my breakfast smiles at me. :)

Something fun to share:::

I participated in my first cross-blog conversation on my crochet blog, talking each day with Sara from Mom with a Hook. It was wonderful and it makes me want to do more of these conversations. In fact, I’ll be doing one here next week chatting with Aprile of The Steady Hand.
