Happy Monday my friends. I hope you've all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Mine was very enjoyable and definitely calm and relaxing as we didn't move anything. We needed the break and it felt good to sit back and do nothing.
This week though, we are kicking it into high gear as we get everything moved out and into the new house. I'm ready for it, I'm honestly ready to be in the new one and to make it my own.
I apologize for my absence here on the blog, but as I'm sure you understand, it's been just crazy around here, and I think this coming week is going to be just the same. Here's the thing though, I am taking a break from Facebook, not only for the move but you know I usually do this a few times a year, and I've decided that I don't really know how long I'll be gone from Facebook or when I'll return, if I even will.....my blog will take priority as it should, and all my updates will be done here. Oh I am excited to get back to my normal blogging, hope you are too.
As I look outside my window:::
It's bright and sunny and currently 59 degrees, but we're supposed to reach a high of 90 today. Should be nice and warm :)
Right now I am:::
Typing up this post, drinking my coffee, and writing a to do list for this week.
Thinking and pondering:::
On so many things....news stories that have touched me in one way or another, others that have angered me, the move to the new house, what I still need to get done, changes of address and utilities and all things like that.
On my bedside table:::
My kindle and my bible.
On my tv this week:::
Catch up on weekend shows
19 Kids and Counting
Little Women: LA
Return to Amish
The local radio station on the my laptop, they are sharing funniest dad stories for Father's Day.

Wednesday - Homemade Pepperoni Calzones

What I am creating:::
Lots more Mandalas, and I've also started another blanket. This time it's a corner to corner granny stripe.
My simple pleasure:::
Crocheting, without a doubt. It's one of my simplest and most loved pleasures.
Slow down. No really, slow down, everything will get done, but there is no need to rush through things. Set up a routine, work on a to do list, and divide the chores up into your week days. There is no need to get everything done in one way, if you divide it up throughout the week, you can get your chores done and add in some relaxing and fun time too.
Looking around the house:::
It is echoing, and looking very empty. There are a few things still around, but not much.
From the camera:::
My niece's Recital was this weekend, it is always so much fun watching her perform.
This country. I honestly feel like we need to pray and pray fervently for this administration and for the country in general.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
1 Timothy 6:11
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!
