Good morning my friends. I apologize for this post going up a little later than usual, but I am actually at the library right now.
This week we have State testing, so all 4 kids are currently busy and I am waiting on them. I could go home because we are but 5 minutes away, but unfortunately all 4 are sick in some capacity or other. The worst one right now is Nicholas, and then Tiffany, then Colby and Jasmine who started with a sore throat this morning.
So, I'm staying put in case one of them needs me. Luckily though, like I said above, the testing is at the library so I can enjoy some coffee, some books, some wifi and some rest. Praying that all 4 kids feel ok.
Alright, on to our Happy Homemaker Monday......
As I look outside my window:::
It's very bright and sunny today with not a single cloud in the sky. Thankfully the winds have stopped. I see some cars in the parking lot if I look out to my left, and to my right I see cars driving by.
Right now I am:::
Sitting in the study area with my laptop, typing up this post, and enjoying the quietness and the scent of books all around me. You know what I mean!!!
Thinking and pondering:::
On the testing, on all the work we still have to do aside from the testing, and on the move....of course.
On my bedside table:::
Kleenex, Vicks and my body lotion
On my tv tonight:::
The Little Couple
Hangar 1: The UFO Files

Nothing but silence, oh and the click click of my keyboard as I type this post.

What I am creating:::
Still working on the corner to corner blanket, it's been slow because I haven't had much time to really get into it.
My simple pleasure:::
This one is referring to baking as well. I usually like to get everything done on a Sunday and freeze it for the week, so I make a huge batch of pancakes and waffles, muffins and even bread, then freeze it and during the week we just take out what we need.
Looking around the house:::
Well more like looking around the library. It's very quiet, I'm surrounded by bookshelves which makes me very happy. There is an elderly gentleman sitting at the far end of the room working on a computer, and I can hear two ladies chatting over at the coffee shop.
From the camera:::
Rainy day yesterday and as much as I love the rain itself, the dark skies contrasting with the green trees is even more beautiful.
My husband's 90 days probation for his job, is coming up next week, praying for that.
Praying for our move, that we find the house we really love and are able to get into that one and out of this one without having to pay double the rent.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.
1 John 3:21-22
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!
