Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/08/20137:02 AM
Good morning ladies.
Here we are, another Monday morning and a whole week ahead. Sure do hope it's a good one for everyone.
It's been beautiful, but then again I think it's because we're not in the middle of the scorching summer yet.
Right now I am....
About to have my coffee, this morning is a Vanilla Biscotti kinda morning. Talking to hubby about our son's birthday on Thursday, talking about some decisions we have to make and just watching him get ready for work.
That it's Monday morning and that I would rather still be in bed. Also thinking about my son's birthday and what I have to do in preparation for that, things like make the sugar paste for the cake and his Minecraft plushies etc.
On my reading pile....
An Elm Creek Quilts Collection by Jennifer Chiaverini. (It's 3 books in one, I've finished the first and am on to the second, really enjoying this series)
The Kingmaker's Daughter by Phillipa Gregory

Looking forward to this week....
My son turning 10 years old. I can't believe time has gone by so quickly, not quite sure I'm ready to have no littles left in the house.
Looking around the house....
Some dishes in the sink that didn't fit in the washer last night. A few items on the kitchen table that need to be put away.
I have a few loads of laundry to get through as well.
Kids are still asleep and it's really quite in here, so at the moment it's just me and the pugs in the living room.
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....
Brother and sister in law, they have an important appointment tomorrow.
Bible verse, Devotional....
Exodus 33:12-13 (NIV) - Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”
