I have this internal clock that wakes me up pretty much every day, between 6:30 and 7am. No matter what day, what year, what is going on, rain or shine. Little irritating to say the least.
Anyway, let's get going with the Happy Homemaker Monday post for today.
The weather outside is::::The fog around here has been quite creepy. I do like fog on a rare occasion but when it is a common every day thing, it starts becoming quite weird, to say the least. Let me show you what is the mess outside, because it truly feels like we're in a horror movie.
On the breakfast plate this morning::::As always, at the moment just the cup of coffee but I will be making some cinnamon rolls in about an hour or two, before the family wakes up here.
As I look outside my window:::Creepiness ensues. Foggy, cold. But you know, it's almost like a beautiful creepiness, it always reminds me that whatever God creates is beautiful in it's own right.
Right now I am::::Typing up this post, sitting with the fire going and enjoying the quietness of the house as everyone is fast asleep. Listening to music on Spotify too.
As I look around the house::::It is clean, I don't have to do anything today. Yay!!!
The fire is going, the lamp in the living room is turned on, but other than that the house is quite dark. It looks cozy though :)
On today's to do list::::Laundry....Have a few loads, I think 3, to put away. They are all folded and in the baskets, I did that yesterday, but now it's the job of getting everything where it belongs. Seriously, laundry is a full time job. Ugh!!!
Cleaning....In the kitchen....Usual dishes, counter pick up. I do have to mop again, I mopped yesterday and then before it was completely dry I was walking around in there and not it just looks horrible.
In the living room....Nothing much, just some random things here and there, like laptops on the couches and game boxes on the table.
In the bedrooms....make the beds, open blinds, vacuum.
In the bathrooms....Did the cleaning yesterday, so no need to do it today.
Homeschooling....End of semester is Thursday, so even though it is a holiday and there is technically no school, the girls are both working hard.
Cooking.....For lunch, we have leftover Spaghetti and Dinner will be Ribs, Fries and Corn on the Cob. Husband requested!
Currently reading::::Still nothing, still waiting on my book to come in. Truth be told, I haven't had time anyway.
On the TV today::::I started watching a movie last night and then it kept buffering and stopping and it was irritating me, so I turned it off and will continue watching this morning. It is "The Best of Me" from Nicholas Sparks. I was really enjoying it too.....but that's ok, I'm loading it now and will finish when I'm done with the post.
Also have American Sniper and Dracula Untold to watch today with the family.

What I am creating at the moment::::Oh my gosh, nothing.......where has my crochet mojo gone? I'm really a total mess at the moment, and I can't wait to feel content and normal again so that I can get back to the things I enjoy.
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::Finally updated the food blog. Did you hear that loud sound a few days ago? That was the collective gasp of the Universe. Anyway, you can get the recipes for the Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie and the Ice Cream Cupcakes, right there on the blog. I will also have the recipe for this yummy Peach Cake up as well. It's like a cross between a Tres Leches and a Peach Cake. So yummy.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
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!
