Happy Homemaker Monday - 04/01/2013
Good morning ladies, hope you all had a lovely weekend and Easter with the family :)
Ours was good, quiet, relaxing and just what it's all about. So, without further ado, let's get going with our Happy Homemaker Monday.
NOTE: I've removed the category "favorite blog post", as I know that like me, many of you don't always have the chance to read blogs and so won't have something to share in that area.
We're definitely onto the warmer temperatures already. I will just enjoy these for now because I know that in about a month we'll be seeing the triple digits. :
Right now I am....
Typing this post up while making a mental list of what I have to do today. Talking to my husband about our son's birthday and what I plan to do for his cake, and also enjoying a cup of hot coffee.
That I have quite a bit I want to accomplish, and hoping I get it all in. Also thinking that last week I wasn't able to do Zumba as I wasn't feeling quite well, but can't wait to get back into it today.

A quiet week of homemaking, homeschooling and life in general.
Looking around the house....
Kitchen needs some attention, there are a few dishes in the sink soaking in soapy water, waiting to go into the dishwasher. A few things on the counters from the weekend, kid toys, husband books etc.
Living room is clean, except for some of the kid's Easter chocolates on the ottoman.
From the camera....
On my prayer list.....
Our friends Jen and Matthew, as they go through some very difficult moments in their life.
Other friends who are needing some prayer at the moment.
Bible verse, Devotional....
Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you - James 4:8
