Good morning everyone, hope you've had a fantastic weekend.
I was not ready for Monday to roll around, matter of fact I would be extremely happy if this was Friday again. I know it's ridiculous but I had such a good weekend, very relaxed, filled with family time, crochet and Christmas movies.
But,it's a new week and so we must put one foot in front of the other and keep going, right? Let's see what we're all up to in our Happy Homemaker Monday.
Breakfast time....what is on the plate this morning::::
I had a cup of coffee and some toast made from the fresh sandwich bread I made yesterday.
Right now I am::::
I just popped in a load of laundry and made some calls, now I'm quickly getting this post up before getting back into my chores. I have a dishwasher needing emptying and more dishes needing to go in.
The weather outside::::
This weather has been absolutely insane, we were at 20 degrees two days ago and today we have a high of 72. It's making us all a little sick, nothing major but sneezes and dry throats and all that. Really wish it would pick a temperature and stick with it.
Looking around the house::::
Still have some Christmas boxes sitting around waiting for the real tree that is coming this weekend. I have a lot of vacuuming to do because Mr Marley has made quite a mess in both living areas. I said to my husband yesterday, that it's just like having a toddler again with the toys everywhere and the messes all over LOL
<On today's to do list::::
Cleaning.....Empty dishwasher, refill again. Sweep kitchen floor. Wipe down bathroom counters and give the toilets a quick swish around with the brush.
Homeschooling.....We are almost on Winter Break so we're finishing up the lessons we have and then we can relax for a bit.
Cooking....My lunches have pretty much consisted of coffee and a sandwich, it's just what I've been feeling like lately. Dinner will be Meatloaf, Mash and Green Beans.
B.J. Daniels book "A Cowboy's Legacy".
On the TV today::::
Last night's Outlander

Tuesday - Chorizo and Potato Crispy Tacos
Wednesday - Homemade Pizza

Saturday -Ordering pizza for the kids and the nephew, my husband and I and my brother and sister in law are going out to lunch, followed by Christmas Shopping
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Continue with the blanket, it's coming along really nicely and I'm on the border now, but making it up as I go along which is fun, but also terrifying hahaha
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
I'll be reviewing the cookbook on Wednesday, and will share with you which recipes I've tried.
Looking forward to this week::::
Just a quiet week and no more bad news, I am a bit tired of constant stress.
Favorite photo from the camera::::
Just a sneak peek at the blanket I'm working on.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses::::
I was on Pinterest the other day and ran across a quote that stopped me dead in my tracks. I actually shared it on Facebook. It's something I've been struggling with my whole life......Worrying.
Why is it that I can't kick myself in the behind and just stop with the worry? This definitely put it into perspective for me. Sometimes all it takes is the right quote to come along and you finally get it. Now I'm not saying that it will happen overnight, but it already got me shifting my thinking which is a good thing. Hope it helps one of you out there too.
