How has your long weekend been? Done anything fun, did you stay home or go away?
We've stayed around home and just relaxed. It feels good to have a quite weekend with no plans and no rushing. I've been able to catch up on my sleeping, and even took a nap yesterday afternoon, wish is unheard of. Truthfully I avoid naps because they make me extremely cranky, but I had taken an allergy tablet and it knocked me right out.
Jasmine was playing a game on the Playstation, and I just laid down right next to her and was out. Hahaha
Anyway, let's get going with our Happy Homemaker Monday, and I'll actually be able to come by and visit you all today :)
Summer has arrived in North Texas....and I mean, really arrived, Saturday we had a high of 106. Weather has been gorgeo
Summer has arrived in North Texas....and I mean, really arrived, Saturday we had a high of 106. Weather has been gorgeous, and we still have some hot days ahead, at least until Thursday because it seems that after that, it's at least 5 days of rain, nonstop.

Have two review books going up today. Started the next review book last night, it's called It takes One to Tango and I'm finding it very interesting.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Picking up the Nuts About Squares blanket again, have a few weeks to catch up on.
Looking around the house:::
It's peaceful, everyone is still asleep, except for Marley and I. I have the TV on to the ID Discovery channel and just listening and sort of watching the crime shows on as I type up this post, get breakfast and play with Marley. I have my curtains open, and the back doors open as well with the screen closed, so I get the fresh air and not the flies. I can hear the birds chirping outside, lovely morning.
From the camera:::
I've had such a wonderful time going through old posts. I came across this picture and my heart melted. I miss my little boy being so little and needing mommy all the time. He is now 14, towers over me and sticks to his bedroom.
What I'm wearing today:::
Still in pajamas right now, but I'll throw on some comfy shorts and a top shortly.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Spending time with Marley. I don't understand how some people don't like dogs, I find having a dog one of the most precious things on earth. He makes me happy, he makes me feel good, he is such a comfort at times. Definitely a simple pleasure for me :)
Inspirational Quote, Bible verse, anything you want to share:::
This quote actually comes from the book I just started last night, and I found it profound and thought provoking.
"In every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce. The trick is to find, and continue to find, the grounds for marriage." - Robert Anderson
