Good morning my friends, how are you doing on this Monday?
I have been up since 4:30am, was woken up by very strong winds making it seem like the house was going to fall apart. Of course, I couldn't go back to sleep, so I'm quite tired this morning, at least until the coffee kicks in.
Alright, well, let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday post. I am sorry I didn't get to visit you all last week but I had a very sick boy on my hands. I will come by today though :)
As I look outside my window:::
Very strong winds, the trees are whipping back and forth and the rain is hitting hard. My trash can has toppled over with the winds. It's 45 degrees right now and cloudy grey skies, looks like this is what we have on the horizon for the rest of the day.
Right now I am:::
Writing this post up, drinking the last bit of my coffee and also listening to my Portuguese soap on the computer.
Thinking and pondering:::
About our budget, and the planning we are doing financial wise.
On my bedside table:::

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Decided to finish off the Crochet Mood Blanket, it's big enough to snuggle on the couch and watch TV, and besides, I'm getting bored with it. So adding on the edging today and calling it good.
My simple pleasure:::
Cooking, I know some of you don't like it, but I couldn't imagine not being able to cook and I really do find it a pleasure.
Lesson learned the past week:::
Just a reminder that my children mean the world to me and that no sacrifice is too big for their well being.
Looking around the house:::
Living room needs a little tidying up and I want to clean the couches today. In the kitchen there are dishes in the rack drying, I just have to put them away, and I don't have any in the sink to wash, yay!
From the camera:::
Family and friends.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Psalm 23:1-3 NIV
PLEASE, don't add links to this list that are not part of the Happy Homemaker Monday. I've asked numerous times, and I'm frankly quite tired of having to remove links to other posts that shouldn't be in this list. Please be respectful of my request!
