Good morning everyone, well, it's Monday, are you ready for it? I think I actually am ready to get this week going.
Way I see it, it's one more week closer to moving and getting settled into my new house....and summer break too :)
Anyway, let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday!
As I look outside my window:::
I'm actually having to squint, the sun is shining so brightly. It's windy though so the chairs on my deck are moving to and fro and the trees are whipping about. I'm so over this wind, it messes with my allergies big time.
Right now I am:::
Drinking a cup of hot coffee with Italian Sweet Cream Creamer, thinking about what I should eat for breakfast. I'm not really very hungry but I know I should eat something and I just don't know what.
Thinking and pondering:::
On what I have going on this week, not a lot, thankfully. Also thinking about my blog and how much I want to get back into my daily blog visits and seeing what everyone is up to. I spend so much time scrolling through Facebook and there's nothing going on there, so I am going to start taking that time and visiting my blog friends. More and more, I miss the old bloggy days and what blogging really meant, just women sharing their lives, their families, visiting each other, encouraging each other.....now blogs seem to be something completely different, more people are vlogging on Youtube, blogs are mostly about giveaways and reviews or people on soapboxes going on and on about how the way they do things is the right way. It's just not a very pleasant atmosphere, in my opinion.
On my bedside table:::
My Kindle - reading The Bookstore by Deborah Meyler
Simple Abundance: A daybook of comfort and joy

My son talk to me about the game he is playing. I don't understand anything he is saying or what it means, but it's important to him so I just nod and say yes and smile. The joys of motherhood right?

When you are writing out your schedule for the house, make sure to include time for yourself. It doesn't have to be a long time, but even a few minutes here and there will make a huge difference in your day.
Looking around the house:::
Nicholas is on the couch playing a game on his laptop, with Lola sleeping next to him. My husband is getting ready to leave for work and Jasmine is still asleep, of course. I have some dishes in the sink to wash, and others that need putting away on the rack. Living room needs a little tidying up and I'm hoping to get all the floors mopped, but we'll see, with all the laundry and housework and homeschooling, I may end up just being able to sweep.
From the camera:::
Our upcoming move, finding the right house for us
Friends and family
Bible verse, Devotional:::
This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.
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!
