Good Morning, hope you are all enjoying a good long weekend.  I feel as if it's just rushed by though, time seems to fly doesn't it?

The weather:::
45 degrees right now and I really wish that I could see some rain in this place.  Arizona must be the only State where dark gloomy skies do NOT mean rain...ugh LOL

Levi's Will by W. Dale Cramer (this weekend I read through all the Daughters of Caleb books, LOVe them) 
Beauty Gone Wild (Herbal recipes for gorgeous skin and hair)

On my to do list:::

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
During movie time, I've been working on my big beast of a ripple blanket, it's slow going but it's coming along :)
Got a new crochet book this weekend and I plan on starting some projects on there.
Still working on the Tabbard for my husband, it's done except for the design on the front, THAT is going to take me a while.

In Homeschooling:::
Jasmine is learning all about the skeletal system in Science and in Social Studies she will be learning about the midwest.  Nicholas will be doing a Science Unit Review and taking a Language Arts test.

Looking around the house:::
It's a holiday so everyone is home.  Hubby is on his computer playing Castleville, Nicholas is playing a game on the Wii and Jasmine is on the couch with her laptop.  My dishwasher is running, my washer is doing a load and aside from giving the kitchen a quick clean, I plan on relaxing with the family today. 

From the camera:::
Been relaxing on here quite a bit, loving the new couches they are so comfortable :)

Something fun to share:::
There are so many great blogs out there that I love and there are those that just catch my eye and keep me captive for a long time, those are the ones that I find myself with a cup of hot coffee in hand, just scrolling and scrolling and scrolling and telling myself "Just one more", but hours later I'm still there.  Violet Bella is such a blog for me, the owner is stunning, has a really cool sense of style and is always sharing neat things :)  Go on over and take a look.  

On my prayer list:::
So many people needing prayers right now.  Family, friends.
For me, I just ask for prayers for health and for patience, I have a tendency to over worry about things and drive myself crazy.  

Bible verse, Devotional::: 

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105

California has the same problem as Arizona. I get excited because we have grey skies, but then it doesn't rain. Its grey today and I keep hoping for at least a sprinkle.

Tell Jasmine to enjoy S.S. this week :) I was born and raised in the Mid- West--Wouldn't have it any other way!
