Happy Monday everyone :)
I know, I sound a little too chirpy for an early Monday morning, but I've learned that it's best to just go with it and accept it than dwell in the sad notion that it's, in fact, the beginning of another week.
So let's get going, and I pray that you all have a beautiful, blessed week ahead, no matter what you're doing :)
It's been cloudy since yesterday and there was talk of rain, but it never showed up. Bummer! Anyway, it's dark and cloudy today but no rain in sight. This week we'll be in the 90s.
Right now I am:::
Typing up this post, and I have my TV on to ID Discovery, with, of course, crime shows.
On my reading pile:::
News of the World by Paulette Jiles, for an upcoming review.
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
Finished Orange is the New Black, and also watched the last two episodes of Reign. I'm so upset that it's over, and I really disliked the way it ended. Of course the TV was on to crime shows as usual.
On my TV:::
Dr Phil (if it's a new one)
ID Discovery Channel

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Have two rows left on Part 4 of the Atlanticus, then hoping to get started on Part 5 which was released today.
Have to finish Jasmine's weapon for this weekend's cosplay event.
Looking around the house:::
I did a lot of housework yesterday, so it's not needing much other than just a quick tidy up here and there.
From the camera:::
I hope you're not getting sick of my old photos, but as I go through previous blog years, I see so many wonderful pictures that I took of my kids. Brings back so many memories. This is the picture on my blog book cover for 2009. Just love it )
What I'm wearing today:::
It's not even 8am yet, so I'm still in my pajamas. Black shorts with white and purple flowers, lavender tank top and my robe. I'm not sure what I'll be wearing today, you know sometimes I want to just throw on some sweat pants and then there are days I actually put on jeans and a nice top etc. Just because I'm a homemaker, doesn't mean that I should be sloppy all the time, right?
Today though, it's cloudy and gloomy, and I may just put on a tshirt and some shorts for my cleaning/homemaking day.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Looking through old photographs
Inspirational Quote, Bible verse, anything you want to share:::
Prayer from today's Grace for Each Day.
"Dear Lord. You have offered me the gift of abundance through Your Son. Thank you, Father for the abundant life that is mine through Christ Jesus. Let me accept His gifts and use them always to glorify You. Amen."
