Happy Homemaker Monday - 09/09/20137:42 AM
Oh goodness, I'm so tired of being busy, I need to slow down and very soon.
You know what I miss the most? Just sitting on my couch with my crochet, watching mindless TV. Maybe in a month or two I can finally get there, but for now there is just too much going on around me.
I want to quickly apologize to you all for not yet making it around to visit you, I assure you that it's on my mind and that every day I say to myself that I need to go say hi, and then life gets in the way and by the time I get a free moment it's 11pm. I do thank you all for continuing to come by and visiting me through this difficult busy adjustment period :)
Cold this morning. I actually feel great saying that LOL It's only 50 degrees this morning, usually I only saw that kind of temp in December back in Arizona, I think I need to get my body used to cold weather again.
Right now I am....
Thanking the Lord above for again seeing us through a difficult time. Writing this post up, planning lessons and thinking about what I have to do today.
That I'm blessed in so many ways and that I need to remember that when a struggle arises, instead of going straight into worry mode.
On my reading pile....
Have two books from the library to finish reading, both from the Civil War period. Also have quite a few for reviews coming up :)

Looking forward to this week....
Oh boy....I am just basically looking forward to some quiet time whenever I can get it. Not sure when that will be LOL
Also looking forward to one of my favorite shows returning "Haven".
Looking around the house....
The two boys are up and playing on the X-Box. Hubby left for work early this morning.
I have some dishes in the sink that need to be washed, a dishwasher that needs to be emptied and refilled, and some other housework.
Living room needs picking up and I need to give my carpets a good cleaning, they're not dirty but I like running the carpet cleaner at least twice a month.
From the camera....
This past Saturday it was Air Force Appreciation Day. It was fun seeing the parade that we used to attend and also seeing my husband's old Squadron at this base.
On my prayer list.....
My brother and sister in law, they have put in job applications in quite a few places so hoping to hear something back soon
Bible verse, Devotional....
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
– 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 (NIV)
