Here we are, the 3rd of November, NOVEMBER??? My word! I can't believe how close we are to Thanksgiving and to Christmas.....and to a new year. Wow!
The beginning of a new week, let's see what is ahead.....
The weather outside is::::Cold and very frosty. The mountains around us are white with snow, I can't even believe it. We've had to turn the heat on a few times as it's chilly downstairs especially in the mornings and evening. We are now in the 50's High and looks like that is what we'll be at the rest of this week. C
On the breakfast plate this morning::::Right now, a cup of coffee with Gingerbread Latte creamer, and I'm not sure that I like it. Hubby is not too sure either whether he likes it. I did buy some yummy Pumpkin Spice Latte mix and may start putting a teaspoon of that in instead.
As I look outside my window:::The sky is blue, not a cloud in sight, but it is so chilly, just 30 degrees at the moment. I do love how the sun reflects off the sun and makes everything look sparkly.
Right now I am::::Writing up this post, still sitting in my jammies and chatting with Curt and Nic. I'm also thinking about what all is on my to do list for today.
As I look around the house::::The living room needs some cleaning. Curt removed my rug yesterday and put it in the garage for me because I need to give it a good cleaning. I still have some Halloween decorations up but want to get those down today too.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....Have 3 loads in the basket needing to be sorted into folding, ironing, and putting away. Still have a load of towels and some sheets to wash, as well as some of Bella's blankets.
Cleaning....In the kitchen, I have dishes in the sink, have to unload the dishwasher and reload it. Update the chalkboard menu for this week, sweep and mop.
In the living room....want to sweep and mop all the wooden floors, dust and tidy up.
In the bedrooms....make the beds, pick up and tidy up, open curtains and blinds and windows to let in some fresh air.
In the bathrooms....clean the toilets and sinks. Sweep and mop.
Homeschooling....prepare the lessons.
Crocheting....really need to just get in there and finish my niece's blanket, keep putting it off for other things. Ugh! Work on my newest project.
Cooking.....for lunch I think I'll make some Cheese Quesadillas. For dinner we are having Ajo Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Carrots.

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
I want to thank you all so much for the prayers for Bella. It seems that she was sick, we don't quite know what was wrong, but she was drinking a lot of water, peeing everywhere and was really miserable, very lethargic etc. The past two days she is back to her normal self, running around, has stopped drinking so much water, is not peeing everywhere and is taking treats again and being her adorable self. Thank you so much for the prayers :)
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!
