On to today's Happy Homemaker Monday.....
As I look outside my window:::
Cloudy, snow tipped mountains. The weather forecast is calling for some snow showers this morning and possibly a few more throughout the week. It is but 26 degrees this morning....brrrr.
Right now I am:::
Eating a bowl of hot porridge with cinnamon and honey and drinking a cup of vanilla flavored coffee. I got on my Minnie Mouse pj pants and my furry boots and I'm still cold.
Thinking and pondering:::
About my husband's schedule. Hoping they get him on a fixed morning shift schedule so we can actually see him and have dinner with him.....though a PM shift would work as well so that we can go to church. We've missed church the past two weeks because he's working and I'm really missing going. So hoping for a resolution.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Just finished my infinity scarf, will show you all this afternoon :) Also finishing my last row of a knitted boot cuff then starting a cute diamond crochet blanket.
My simple pleasure:::
Going somewhere with my husband, even just an errand. I treasure the moments we spend alone in the car.
Lesson learned the past week:::
To just be still. To listen to God, to not try to control and take over everything, because when I do, I mess it all up.
Looking around the house:::
The boys are up and playing a game on their laptops. My husband is talking to my brother about work at the kitchen table and everyone else is still asleep. My sister in law and I cleaned the house yesterday so it looks nice and tidy and there's not much to do today, other than the usual daily pick up here and there.
From the camera:::
Snow we got yesterday....not much but enough to make me smile :)
On my prayer list:::
Rachel Poole, her baby Isabella and her husband Justin. If you haven't yet heard of this horrible attack, do a quick search online.
Friends and family.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
It is by God’s grace that you have been saved.
