Happy Homemaker Monday #416:43 AM
Good Morning everyone, Happy Monday :)
I'm not doing very well today, had a night of tossing and turning again, some bad dreams, still congested and just not a very happy person today.
Praying for energy, for feeling better and for the Lord to guide me and carry me through the rest of the day.
Also want to send a hug and some thoughts towards my readers on the East Coast. Please stay safe!
64 degrees right now, I've been enjoying the cooler temperatures. It feels great to step out back in the morning and actually feel cold.
Right now I am:
Sitting on the couch with my ripple blanket draped over my legs. Sipping on some hot coffee which I've just managed to somehow drip all over my pj shirt. (must be the lack of sleep).
That I should go and change out of my shirt but I'm super lazy this morning and I'll just wait a little longer and then change into my clothes for the day.
Also, thinking about what all I need to do today.
On my reading pile:::
Just started the Susan Wittig Albert Cottage Tales series, thank you Tina Leigh for recommending them :) I'm on book one and so far really enjoying them, it's definitely something up my alley.
This weekend I was also able to get my hands on the whole China Bayle series, also from Susan Witting Albert, for the Kindle.
On my tv:::
My Portuguese soaps (Doce Tentacao, Louco Amor, Tempo de Viver, Doida por ti, Meu Amor)
Copper (I give up...I will catch up eventually)
The Paradise 5
Wartime Farm Episode 8
Tales from the Green Valley ( LOVE this series)

Candle review on blog
Menu plan and grocery list
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Finishing the crochet creeper for the kids. Christmas gifts.
Don't throw out stale bread or the heels if your family doesn't eat them. I keep a ziploc baggie in my fridge and keep adding to it during the week. On the weekend, I take all my stale bread and make Homemade Breadcrumbs.
Looking around the house:::
Hubby is heading out the door right now. My Lola is asleep on the couch right up against me, she loves laying here and it keeps me warm. Win Win right?
I have some dishes in the sink that need my attention. In the living room, there is a bit of tidying up to be done, cups that the kids left laying around to be picked up and dog toys on the floor that I need to put back in their basket.
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
All those out there that need prayer one way or another.
But today, mostly my prayers are concentrated on the East Coast, on all those in the path of this horrible storm. May the Lord watch over and protect them.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
1 Peter 4:15-16 (NIV) - If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.
