Happy Homemaker Monday #478:42 AM
Hello everyone :)
Have spent a weekend with sick ones around me. Started with my husband though he's feeling much better this morning. Passed on to Jasmine who spent yesterday with a very sore throat and just miserable, she is feeling slightly better this morning. Unfortunately Nicholas woke up this morning with a sore throat and is now the miserable one.
I'm sure it's making it's way to me. Oh boy.
45 degrees at the moment and I just wish that it would stay like this, at least for a full day. I'm so over the 80 degrees at this time of the year.
Right now I am:
Sitting on my couch wearing my comfy pj's, typing this entry as I watch my Portuguese soap on the TV. Making my way through my coffee though it's getting to the point where it's lukewarm and just BLECH!
That I hope I don't get sick, unfortunately my throat is starting to hurt. I'm thinking right now that I'll spend the day with hot tea with honey and lemon.
On my reading pile:::
Nothing at the moment. Been so busy with Christmas preparations that I haven't had time to sit and read.
On my tv:::
The Fabulous Baker Brothers
Favorite Blog post this week (mine or other):::
Whimsical Christmas from Susan Branch
Something fun to share:::
One of my favorite stores, right up there with Cath Kidston, is Greengate. With it's headquarters in Denmark, I guess I could say that it's Denmark's Cath Kidston store where everything is very reminiscent of the styles I love. Check it out and let me know what you think.
On the menu for this week:::
Monday - Slow Cooker Spinach Alfredo Lasagna
Tuesday - Creamed Chicken in Pastry Shells
Wednesday - Traditional Calzone
Thursday - Ranch Tilapia w/ white rice and peas (never made it last week)
Friday - *will be grocery shopping*
On my to do list:::
Nothing....I am taking a day off so I can fight off this cold before it hits me.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Have a new crochet project on the hook. Already finished the handmade Christmas gifts so nothing going on there.
With our upcoming move, I'm already looking for ways to pack things easier. Truth be told as a military wife, we do become experts on packing and moving but there's always room for improvement. One thing I'll be doing this time is packing my dinner plates between foam disposable plates. They'll be safe and they'll save me the time of wrapping each one in newspaper or kitchen towels.
Looking around the house:::
Jasmine is asleep on the couch. Nicholas is watching some videos on his laptop. Hubby is playing a facebook game and I'm typing this up. My beautiful Christmas tree is twinkling away in the corner and the scent of pine is wafting through the air.
From the camera:::
Love my yarn basket :)
On my prayer list:::
Praying for my sweet friend Lorraine, the Flowerlady. Her husband left this earth yesterday morning. I'm so sad for her. I pray that the Lord give her the courage and the strength she needs right now.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
