Happy Homemaker Monday - 11/18/201310:35 AM
Good morning my friends.
I have to start by apologizing for the delay in this post going up. Our router decided to conk out last night, so this morning I had to run out and buy a new one. Thankful that I had the funds at the moment or I wouldn't have known what to do.
It's up and running now, and though this may be late, at least it's going up right????
As I look outside my window:::
At the moment the sun is trying to shine through the clouds and we are at 34 degrees. We woke up to a beautiful white winter wonderland on Saturday but as the day went by it completely melted, bummer. Here's what the rest of the week looks like....
Right now I am:::
Sitting on my bed and trying to quickly get this post up. I've taken off my boots and am wearing nice thick wooly socks because my toes are just frozen.
Thinking and pondering:::
On Thanksgiving, on Christmas, on the grocery shopping I still need to finish...just a few things running around my mind.
On my bedside table:::
Both books are still sitting there waiting, haven't read much at all this past week, but hoping to change that soon.
The Guardian by Beverly Lewis
The Pursuit of Mary Bennet by Pamela Mingle (for a review)

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still working on the Diamond crochet blanket. It's been another crazy week.
My simple pleasure:::
Having a cup of coffee and a few cookies in the afternoon
Lesson learned the past week:::
God is always in control. He is the Potter and we are the dirty clay that he molds and pounds and presses into what we're supposed to be. Something has come up with regards to my husband's job and we are wondering if this is the right job for him or if it's time to look for something else. The good thing is that we know that God is in control and knows exactly what the answer to that question is. So we'll wait until it is revealed :)
Looking around the house:::
Jasmine is in the shower, Tiffany is fixing her hair, the boys are watching a movie, my sister in law is at work and both my husband and brother are running errands. The house is a flurry of activity and noise, and even though sometimes it drives me a little nuts, more often than not I enjoy all the busyness around me.
From the camera:::
On my prayer list:::
My husband. He is struggling with being retired after so many years in the military. It's hard to see these guys trying to adjust to civilian life. I pray that he feels peace soon and that he finds the job that makes him happy.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
