Good morning everybody. I am so so tired today, you know the whole clocks changing thing is something I didn't have to worry about while living in Arizona, and now I am so confused and lost LOL
That whole hour we are losing out on? Yep, my body is feeling it this morning. I better keep a pot of coffee going or I may be falling asleep throughout the day.
Anyway, here we are, new week and another Happy Homemaker Monday. And look, I finally got around to changing the button, yay!! Feel free to use it, or continue using one of the previous ones, it's up to you :)
As I look outside my window:::
I see nothing, it is pitch black still out side. I do hear the birds chirping away. We've had a bit of a cold turn in our weather, it's been downright chilly and I've even had to turn the fire on at night a few times. Right now it's 49 degrees and we're supposed to go up to 52, but having more rain which has been ongoing here for the past week.
Right now I am:::
Sitting at my kitchen table, trying to wake up and yawning away. All I can think is "it's too early to be up" LOL
Thinking and pondering:::
About our upcoming move, whether we're going to rent or buy etc.
On my bedside table:::
Coming Home by Mariah Stewart.

Homemaking (I know it may come as a shock to some of you, but I truly do love what I do)
Lesson learned the past week:::
That life is too short and precious. One of the 4 year olds at my niece's dance studio, passed away in a car accident a few days ago. So heartbreaking, makes you want to hug your children tighter.
Looking around the house:::
Very dark, except for my fairy lights in the corner. It's quiet, the kids are still asleep and hubby is downstairs getting ready for work. I have a bowl on the counter with sourdough that has been rising overnight and here shortly, I will go and turn the dough into beautiful bread loaves and some cinnamon rolls.
From the camera:::
Family of the little girl and all the dancers and teachers at the studio.
My usual list which comprises of family and friends.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 1 Peter 3:15 NIV
PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
