Happy Monday friends, here we are again at the beginning of a new week. I had a very busy one last week and I know that this one will be equally crazy, but I'm looking forward to the school year winding down and relaxing.
Let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday!!!!
As I look outside my window:::
The sun is shining so brightly, I had to close my blinds. The birds are flying around and in the distance I see sprinklers going on the field.
Right now I am:::
Saying goodbye to my husband, he is walking out the door to work. I am also typing up this post and enjoying my morning coffee.....and I'm in my PJ's still, won't get out of those for about another hour.
Thinking and pondering:::
On life. There are some family issues back home that just don't seem to get resolved, and when we think they are, they rear their ugly head again.
On my bedside table:::
My Cath Kidston Bluebell Hand Cream
On my tv tonight:::
The Little Couple
Here comes Honey Boo Boo
Hangar 1: The UFO Files
Long Island Medium
The radio, Lola playing with one of her toys, birds chirping outside

What I am creating:::
Finished the crochet mood blanket, and am now on another blanket. I also have Tae Kwon Do patches to sew on 3 uniforms today.
My quilt is still waiting to be worked on, and I am thinking that this week I'm going to set aside some time and get sewing. Speaking of quilts, where do you go for cheap fabric? I would love to get some new one but I can't spend a lot of money on it.
My simple pleasure:::
Watching old western movies
One of the simplest tips I can give is to do your dishes right after dinner. Many years ago, I was the one who would leave them soaking in the sink overnight and then deal with them in the morning. It seemed like a great idea at the time, but then I would wake up each morning to a disaster of a kitchen and a sink full of dishes, which in turn set the mood for my day. It wasn't a good one.
So now I just wash right away, put all the leftovers in the fridge and tidy up the kitchen, so when I get up in the morning I actually like going in there.
Looking around the house:::
It's clean and tidy. I did all my major cleaning yesterday so now I get to sit back and enjoy a day that I don't have to clean anything.....well aside from the usual breakfast, lunch, dinner dishes etc. Pugs are asleep on the couch, kids are still in bed and it's just me and the morning sun.
From the camera:::
My family back in South Africa, more specifically my father and stepmother.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
"I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them."
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!
