Happy Homemaker Monday - 03/24/2014

Good morning my sweet friends and welcome to another Happy Homemaker edition.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, mine was good and very productive.  Hubby and I got a lot done around here and ran some errands and did some shopping and such.  This week we are on Spring Break so I'm going to use it to do all my Spring Cleaning and I'll take you along with me, so if that is something you're interested in, be sure to check back later for my first Spring Cleaning post :)

As I look outside my window:::
It's a beautiful morning, the sun is rising and there is not a single cloud in the sky.  It's currently 30 degrees which is nice and warm, and I honestly never thought I would say something like that LOL  But, yes, beautiful start to this Monday.

Right now I am:::
Well, I am a little bummed because I just took my last sip of my coffee and I feel like I could have a little more but I don't think I want to make another full cup.  So, I will just leave it, and have a cup later this afternoon.  

Thinking and pondering:::
About our upcoming move.  Whether to rent for another year, or buy....Hubby and I want to buy a house and so we're already looking into properties and starting to get our ducks all in a row.  I'm so excited at the prospect of having my own house.

On my bedside table:::
My Bible
My body lotion, some Kleenex and my Kindle

On my tv tonight:::
I am so behind on The Musketeers, so definitely catching up on those.
Still have The Trip to Bountiful to watch, plus Ghost Adventures from Saturday.
The Trip to Bountiful
Star Crossed

Here comes Honey Boo Boo

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Finished my Mood Blanket, just have to wash it today and then I'll take some pics for you all :)  Have moved on to my second blanket and enjoying that one :)
My simple pleasure:::
Toasted Cinnamon Bread with a good slathering of butter

Lesson learned the past week:::
That God is never too far away and all we need to do is seek Him.  I sometimes get so caught up with my little life that I tend to forget He is there and that is when I'll stumble and fall and mess up.  

Looking around the house:::
It is so quiet.  Hubby has left for work, the pugs are asleep in the living room and my kids are asleep in their bedrooms.  I have my windows open to let in some fresh air and the curtains are blowing in the breeze.  Love it :)
From the camera:::

Bird watching

Prayer List:::
Jacinda....Sherry Gore's daughter who is very sick at the moment. friend Jen's daughter who seems to be struggling right now.
I don't know why but the past week I have been led to pray for the young people I know, God is pushing me to lift them in prayer, and I don't know exactly why but it's not for me to question.   

Bible verse, Devotional:::
"Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning."Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Joel 2:12-13 (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!

I have been spring cleaning here as well. I do hope you end up getting a house of your own.

Wow lots of spring cleaning. That's always fun. Well, maybe not so much the actual cleaning part but it sure does feel good to have a clean home. Good luck on your home buying decision/search.
