Happy Homemaker Monday - 05/12/20147:05 AM
Good morning and Happy Monday!
We had such a blessed and fun weekend, filled with family time. It was wonderful. Now it's back to the grind right? Another work and school week awaits us, but thankfully school is ending very soon, matter of fact the two boys are done for the year, it's only the girls that have work still pending, but that is expected since they're in high school and the work load is crazy.
Alright, let's move on to our HHM.....oh and by the way, I am coming to see all your HHM's from last Monday, this morning. I didn't get a chance last week but I want to read them before the new ones go up today. I will check on those during the day too, so no worries. :)
As I look outside my window:::
Bright blue skies, not a cloud in sight and it looks like the wind has finally died down. It's the one thing that I really don't like about this place, the constant wind drives me crazy.
Right now I am:::
Still in my pj's. I'm wearing soft pink fleece pants with these cute grey and darker pink hearts on them. Drinking my coffee and writing this post up.
Thinking and pondering:::
About our move and the houses we've already looked at. We have a few others to go take a look. I can't believe we'll be moving again in about 2 or 3 weeks, oh joy.

My simple pleasure:::
Reading Homesteading blogs
Set aside a time each day, to walk around the house and put things away and where they belong. It helps cut down on clutter or an end of the day pile that is so overwhelming to deal with.
Looking around the house:::
It needs some tidying up. The kitchen has a few dishes in soapy water that I need to wash. The dish rack is full of clean dishes to put away. Living room needs some tidying up. Husband is at his computer desk doing some school work and Nicholas is on the couch watching a Youtube video.
From the camera:::
For Mother's Day, we headed to the Old Idaho Penitentiary, it was such an amazing visit. I'll share it all with you in a separate post later today.
My sister in law Nadine, who just lost her father last week. Her mother Auntie Olga, brother Justin and my brother Bruno who were all extremely close to Uncle Alan.
Friends and family needing prayers at the moment.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
