Hope you all had a wonderful, relaxed weekend and are ready for the week ahead.
We are officially on summer break, school is finished and by the time we resume on August 25th, we will have a Senior, a Sophomore and two 6th graders. Goodness!!!
Alright, let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday!
As I look outside my window:::
Another gorgeous day, not a cloud in sight and 50 degrees right now, which feels absolutely wonderful. I see birds flying around and the branches on the trees waving with the breeze.
Right now I am:::
Finishing up my cup of coffee, while listening to Lola playing with one of her toys.
Thinking and pondering:::
About what I have to do today and the rest of the week, actually, what I have to do the next two weeks as we finish moving into the new house. Change of address again, on everything, plus getting utilities set up at the new house, etc. *sigh*
On my bedside table:::
Nothing, it's actually clear of everything.....well aside from my alarm clock.
On my tv this week:::
I am not sure, with all the shows having finished recently, we don't have much to watch until all the new ones start.
Nothing but the click click of my keyboard keys....oh and my son and husband chatting in the office.
On the menu for this week:::
Monday - Spaghetti and Meatballs
Tuesday - Pork Scallopini in cream sauce with Basmati rice
Wednesday - Meat Pie

What I am creating:::
Lots and lots of Mandalas, I'm on a roll. The two I showed you yesterday, plus another one I completely last night, and one that is halfway complete as well. Here is a little sneak peek.....I'm making this one up as I go, and I'm really loving it so far.
My simple pleasure:::
Looking through decorating magazines and dreaming about what my dream house would look like.
A great way to save money on utilities during the summer months, is to make use of your clothesline. If you don't have one, you can use a drying rack out on the patio or deck. Saves you from having to use the dryer, and there really is nothing better than clothes fresh from the line.
Looking around the house:::
It looks soooo empty. We've taken most of our things, just have basically the biggest items like the couches, beds, tv, armoires etc.
From the camera:::
Lots of this going on around here
My family, my friends, my husband and I for this move.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
