Happy Homemaker Monday - 11/13/20157:06 AM
Good Monday morning everyone, hope you've had a wonderful restful weekend. I can't believe that we are but a few days away from Thanksgiving, oh my goodness, it's going to be a super busy week for us all.
Let's see what we have going on, shall we?
Freezing and icy. We had a cold front move in this weekend and the temperatures dipped down to 30 degrees, and we woke up to a blanket of white ice on the ground outside. Looks pretty but my word, is it cold. The rest of the week looks about the same with temperatures getting just to the low 60's for the highs, lots of rain, and even sleet and snow in the forecast for next weekend. Oh my!!!
As I look outside my window:::
The sun is just starting to rise, so while the top of the sky is black and starry, the bottom is light blue. I always love this time of the morning.
Right now I am:::
In bed, have the small heater going because it's freezing in our bedroom. This side of the house seems to be so cold. Working on this post and realizing that I forgot to grab my menu plan and too cold to get up and go find it.
Thinking and pondering:::
Thanksgiving. So many people coming in and so much I have to do today. My mother and father in law arrive tomorrow, and then Wednesday my brother in law and then Thursday the rest of the guests. I'm trying to remember everything I need to do because once I'm off here, I am going full turbo mode and will not stop until bedtime with everything I have to get done.
On my bedside table:::
Cup of coffee, a plate with a piece of toast.
