Good morning everyone, welcome to another Happy Homemaker Monday :)
How was your weekend, did you do anything fun? Mine was pretty laid back, watched a couple movies, went to a thrift store and my husband took us out for a delicious barbecue lunch.
Now for the new work and school week ahead. Can you believe it's already the end of January? Goodness gracious!!!
Right, let's get on with it.....

Another beautiful day, clear blue skies and we're looking at a high of 72 today, which I'm very much looking forward to :) We have a beautiful warm week ahead and then I think some rain this
On my reading pile:::
I set the book I was reading side....And the Trees Crept In. I was enjoying it at first but then, I don't know what happened, I just wasn't liking it. So I picked up Phillipa Gregory's The Taming of the Queen and of course, I'm loving that one.
On my TV:::
Oh friends, I don't know. I'm weird lately where I can't seem to pin down one single series to watch. I have so many that I want to finish or get into and just can't seem to do it. I'll start watching an episode and then stop and move on to something else. It's frustrating. But here's what's on my list:

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Still working on the Mandala, but I'm running out of yarn so need to wait until payday to be able to pick up some more.
Looking around the house:::
It's quiet, even though it's 9 am. If you have teenagers, you know what I'm talking about because these kids can sleep like there's no tomorrow. lol
House is clean, I have one basket of laundry to put away, but other than that, everything else is tidy and clean and I don't have to worry about housework :)
From the camera:::
This morning's post workout breakfast. A green smoothie and a banana muffin.
Something fun to share:::
Experience Mount Everest. Ok guys there are tons of cool websites out there that we don't even know about. I've been on the hunt for some cool ones and I found one called Experience Mount Everest. It is basically a 3D virtual climb to the very top. It is filled with interested information as you make your way up and just gives you an idea of the dangers you will encounter. It's very interesting, so if you have a minute or so, go and check it out :)
What I'm wearing today:::
Already did my Zumba work out this morning and showered, so I'm wearing some comfy grey sweat pants, a black tank top and some slippers.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Listening to nature sounds while I'm working or reading. I'll usually find a website that contains birds chirping, or the ocean waves crashing, or rainforest etc, and I'll turn it on and just enjoy it.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
"With joy you will drink deeply from the fountain of salvation!" Isaiah 12:3
