That is the reason HHM is going up a little later, or a LOT later than usual. I do apologize, but sleeping in is not something that happens very often for me, so I have to take the opportunity when I can.
One quick thing before we continue. I have asked multiple times before and want to remind you once again.....do NOT add any links to the list if they are not related to Happy Homemaker Monday. PLEASE! I spend a lot of time having to delete recipes and links to other posts. Please be respectful and only link up to your HHM post. Thank you :)
Feel free to use :)
It is 66 degrees this morning. My word, even the air smells different. I love lower temperatures and we are finally heading towards Fall this week.
Right now I am:
Sitting at my desk, enjoying my hot cup of Caramel Swirl coffee, talking to the kids and hubby and hearing the birds chirping from outside :)
That I'm doing really well in weaning myself off of Facebook. I didn't go on at all yesterday and only maybe once on Saturday. I find Facebook boring lately and then the whole political thing is just all over the news feed and I am over it LOL I won't delete my account as it's the way I stay in touch with my family overseas, but I definitely will be on there very little.
On my reading pile:::
Started War Brides and didn't really like it, so stopped that one, and started or rather, continued with Almost Amish. Now THAT one I'm enjoying :)
On my tv:::

On my to do list:::
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Started a new crochet project. I really want to make the kids some blankets for Christmas but I honestly don't know if I will finish them in time, decisions, decisions.
Cleaning your mattress. I know it's one of those things that tend to get overlooked, but it really does need a good cleaning, and for that I use baking soda. I remove my sheets, then sprinkle baking soda all over the mattress and let it sit for about an hour. Then just vacuum it up, it gets rid of any dust mites and other nasty stuff, but it also draws up deep dirt or moisture. All in all, it leaves a nice fresh mattress :)
Looking around the house:::
Hubby and kids are all on their computers, either watching a movie, or playing a game or whatever they're doing. I'm finishing up this entry while waiting for Housing Maintenance to call and come fix my refrigerator which is leaking, from I don't know where. House is clean, laundry is done, kitchen is tidy so I don't have much at all to do today :)
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
Many friends going through hard times.
My brother and sister have a very important interview on November 8th. It could be life changing so please please keep them in your prayers :)
Bible verse, Devotional:::
“I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed— I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God.” Isaiah 43:11-12
