It's been going strong for a long time, much longer than I thought it would and I'm so thrilled about it.
I do want to try and maybe change up the categories a bit for the new year, so if you have a suggestion and would like to see a certain category up, just let me know :)
The weather outside is::::Snowy. It started coming down again this morning but seems to have stopped now, and honestly, I hope it stays that way.
On the breakfast plate this morning::::Cup of coffee, and here in a few minutes I will have some leftover chocolate chip pancakes that Jasmine made yesterday for breakfast.
As I look outside my window:::Frost everywhere, but blue skies. It looks really pretty actually, but then Winter time for me is one of the most beautiful times of the year.
Right now I am::::Sitting at the kitchen table, watching the snow falling outside and the cars driving by. Still in my pj's as I'm too cold to go change out of them, but I will have to get that done very soon.
As I look around the house::::It looks so much better with all the Christmas stuff removed. I need to give the living room a quick tidy from the weekend, it's mostly Nick's gaming stuff.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....Not too much, did most of this weekend so only have to throw in Jasmine's laundry, but I have to wait for her to get up so I can get into her bedroom.
Cleaning....In the kitchen, Unload the dishwasher and reload with breakfast dishes, clean the chalkboard wall, water the plants.
In the living room....Vacuum, sweep and mop. Tidy up the couches and brush off the dog hair. Open blinds and windows to let in some cool air.
In the bedrooms....change the bed linens, vacuum, dust. Open blinds and windows.
In the bathrooms....Toilets, sinks and mirrors. Sweep and mop.
Homeschooling....we're on a break, but Jasmine and I need to catch up on some overdue lessons for her and tomorrow I'm having my niece over too so we can get some work done.
Cooking.....lunch today will be Ham and Cheese Sandwiches. Dinner tonight, Pepperoni Pasta Bake.
Currently reading::::Nothing, absolutely nothing. I don't know what is going on or if it's just due to the busyness of the season, but I haven't felt like reading at all.
On the TV today::::Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife Christmas specials.
On the menu this week::::Monday - Pepperoni Pasta Bake
Tuesday - Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes
Wednesday - Pizza
What I am creating at the moment::::A tidier house, post Christmas.
New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::Nothing new. I am hoping that as the new year kicks in, I will be able to pay more attention to my food blog. It's been poorly neglected.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
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!
