Happy Homemaker Monday - 11/30/20151:19 PM
Good morning everyone, I am so very sorry this is going up so late.
For those who don't know, I have my brother visiting from South Africa, he came to surprise me for Thanksgiving :) I've been devoting my time to him and spending time with him, because we hadn't seen each other for 7 years. Lots to catch up on.
Anyway, let's get this HHM on the go, shall we?
Since last week Wednesday we've had rain, non stop rain, freezing rain actually and very low temperatures. Today is the first day without the constant rain coming down and it's actually nice :) Temps are still a little low but nothing too bad.
As I look outside my window:::
Even though the rain has stopped, everything is still wet, there are lots of puddles and a few iced over patches here and there. We have the sun trying to shine through the clouds though which is a nice change from the cloudy days.
Right now I am:::
Sitting on the couch, typing up this post while my brother talks to his family back home. I just finished doing the dishes and have laundry going at the moment.
Thinking and pondering:::
About Christmas coming up so fast, I'm not sure I'm quite ready for it, to be honest.
On my bedside table:::
Nothing, cleared it up the other day and have been really good about keeping it that way.
On my tv this week:::
I've had no time to watch anything, TV or vlogs or anything. I'm so behind but I'll catch up on Thursday after my brother leaves.
The humming of the washer going

What I am creating:::
Nothing at the moment, still just working on the corner to corner
My simple pleasure:::
Catching up with family, just chatting over a cup of coffee
Looking around the house:::
Starting to look a little like Christmas, put up my village and a few bits and bobs here and there
From the camera:::
Friends and family
Bible verse, Devotional:::
