Happy Homemaker Monday - 10/19/20155:25 AM
Good morning friends, well, yep, another Monday.
I am absolutely knackered today, insomnia is something I've been struggling with the past year, I never had problems with it before, never had issues sleeping but now it seems that if I get woken up in the middle of the night for anything, I just can't go back to sleep.
2am this morning I woke up to go to the bathroom, and that was it. It is now 6:42am and I haven't been able to get shut eye again, I have given up and decided to just stay up for the rest of the day. It's going to be a very long day......
50 degrees right now and it's been pretty nice all week long, temperatures have cooled down a lot and we haven't even had to use the air conditioner, which is a huge plus because it gets so expensive during the summer. We are going to get some rain, and some more sunshine this week. Here's what it looks like.....
Things that make me happy:
Reading a good book, finding a series I really enjoy and just shutting out real life and immersing myself into the story.
Book I'm reading:
What's on my TV today:
New Downton Abbey episode 5
Working through my DVR list
I really have no clue right now, I need to get some groceries but my husband just recently switched contractors and we are in that limbo phase, waiting for the new company to pay him and so far nothing. I really need the money to come in so I can get groceries. I do have some chicken in the freezer so I'll probably do something with that.
On my To Do List:
Laundry, small load to iron
No new recipe but I did remake an old one just to try and get some new pics for the blog
The rain, not even going to lie, the prospect of rain two days makes me very happy
It is so dark and quiet at the moment. The kids are still asleep, hubby is at work and it's me and the pugs. The sun is starting to rise though and it looks beautiful. I need to tidy around the house a bit today, nothing major but just a bit here and there.
Did not get any blog reading done, but I do watch vlogs every day and I absolutely am in love with the SacconeJolys. They are the sweetest couple ever and their little ones Emilia and Eduardo have got to be one of the most adorable kids on earth. My word, they make me want to have more babies. If you've never watched one of their vlogs, you simply don't know what you're missing out on.
One of my favorite vlogger channels is Donal Skehan. If you've never heard of Donal, he is a young food writer from Dublin, and he always has some yummy recipes to share.
Lesson learned the past few days:
That if I can't stop thinking or wondering about something or someone, then it means that something is unresolved. Lately I've been kind of struggling with the notion that no matter how hard I try with some people, they are either just not interested, or I may have to keep trying to break through the wall they have put up.
