Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/22/20137:17 AM
Good morning everyone :)
Oh it feels so good to be back to our normal routine. Testing is all done, and now we are basically on the home stretch to finishing out this school year.
Had a very quiet, relaxed weekend, and I can't tell you how much I needed it, I feel better this morning and am well on my way to being over this allergy bout.
Last week's winds were just horrible, so I'm hoping this week it's much better. Looks like we're already in the 90's and staying there.
Right now I am....
Drinking my cup of coffee and smiling at the prospect of a day of homemaking, without interruptions :)
About so many things, what I need to do, what I want to do, how sad I am for so many people, how I wish I could help everyone in need. My mind is a jumble of things right now.
On my reading pile....
So, I still have the same two books that I hadn't finished, but I put those aside because I was lucky enough to get my hands on 100 plus Jane Austen sequels for my Kindle. Oh that made me so very happy because I'm such a huge fan of Jane Austen.
My reading list has been adjusted, and I just started "Jane Austen ruined my life".
Next up is book #2 called "Mr Darcy Broke my Heart", followed by book #3 "The Dashwood Sisters Tell All".
On my TV.....
The Great British Sewing Bee
A few documentaries on the Tudors
Deep South Paranormal
The Dead Files
Da Vinci Demons

Looking around the house....
Jasmine is still asleep, you know how it goes with teens, they can sleep all day long. Nicholas is up and on his computer playing a game. Hubby is at work and both pugs are asleep on the couch next to me.
I have dishes in the sink that need to be moved to the washer, some Xbox games in the living room that need to be put away.
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....
This beautiful country that I call my home. For all those suffering, the victim's families of the tragedies that happened last week, for the police, the military, the firefighters, the EMT's and the hospital staff that have worked so hard to pick up the pieces in the aftermath.
I pray that the Lord continue to watch over us all.
Bible verse, Devotional....
