Welcome to another Happy Homemaker Monday. It is the last one of March, can you believe that? I need this year to slow down a bit, it's going a bit too fast but then lately the past few years, I feel like it's been the norm.
I remember when I was a young child and time seemed to be so slow, days dragged on, months dragged on, especially when you were waiting for your birthday to come around again hahah
Anyway, I just need time to slow a little and not be in such a rush to finish the year, I'm not ready for that yet.
I had a few crazy stressful weeks, and my blogging kind of took a back seat, not as bad as previous years, but I didn't get my daily blogging like I wanted to. Now that things have calmed down I can get back on track, thank goodness. Let's see what we have coming up this week.
It's finally Spring, beautiful hot gorgeous days here in North Texas. But it also means the start of Tornado season and we're already well into it. The state had some tornado watches and warnings yesterday, thankfully not in our area just south of us, but tomorrow we are having pretty bad thunderstorms, so praying it doesn't get too bad. Looks like this week we'll be staying in the upper 70's which if you ask me, is pretty perfect weather :)
On my reading pile:::
It's sad that I haven't changed this category yet, but I'm still slowly getting through Phillipa Gregory "Meridon".
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
I watched We're The Millers with my daughter, on Saturday night. I had already seen it but she hadn't and we stayed up late watching it. I also watched more of the Women Behind Bars. Not much else, we were pretty busy this weekend.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
On the last row of Part 9 of the Mandala Madness.
Still haven't caught up with the Scheepjes CAL, hoping to get all those single crochet rows done before Wednesday when the big middle embroidery pattern is released.
Looking around the house:::
It's a mess, it needs a lot of attention this morning. I took the weekend off and did just the bare minimum, usual dishes, cooking and laundry. Then I spent pretty much all day yesterday hanging with my daughter, and playing The Sims 4. I don't often do that and it was so nice to relax and take it easy.
From the camera:::
I took this pic of my Mandala Madness progress, and of course Mister Marley always thinks I laid it down for him to enjoy. It's quite funny.
What I'm wearing today:::
Still in my pajamas at the moment, just finishing off this post, then will throw on some comfy shorts and a tshirt and get to working on the house.
One of my simple pleasures:::
You will find me completely insane for saying what I'm about to.....but.....housework is one of my simple pleasures. I know, sounds nuts, but it's true.
