Good morning everyone, how was your weekend? Can you believe that we're about halfway through January already?
I've just sat down with a cup of coffee and my rice and lavender heating pad. I desperately need a good pillow because the ones I have are not working and just making me more sore. If you have any suggestions of a good neck and shoulder pillow, please do let me know, I'm getting desperate to find the right one so I stop getting neck/shoulder/back aches.
Right, now let's get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday.
As I look outside my window:::
Beautiful blue skies, not a single cloud in sight. It is 29 degrees at the moment, and our high is just 44 for today. I do love how Winter looks though, there's such a beauty about it.
Right now I am:::
Enjoying my coffee and working on this post, while also being interrupted every 5 minutes by Marley who can't quite decide what he wants. He wants out, then he runs outside and right back in, only to ask to be let out again in 5 minutes. So annoying!!!
Thinking and pondering:::
About my health, I've had some things going on and I truly need some prayers. The Lord knows exactly what my issues are, but let's just say that I'm going to be completely honest with you all......aside from my constant worrying about everything, I do truly believe I'm a hypochondriac. There I said it. Any pain, anything out of the ordinary and my mind immediately goes to the worst case scenario. It's so frustrating living this way because I rob myself of daily joy while my mind wanders, and questions and fills with stupid what if's and oh no's.
But I'll talk more about this in a different post coming up this morning.....it's time to get real about myself and my short comings.
On my bedside table:::
TV control, lotion, and a couple of books.
On my tv tonight:::
Not really sure, I went back to Wolf Hall last night and I've forgotten pretty much all of it, so instead of trying to figure out where I left off, I thought it would be easier to just start from the beginning, so that's what I'm doing.
Birds chirping outside and the keys on my keyboard as I type this. It's deadly quiet in here with everyone still asleep.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Have a few projects going at the moment, but didn't get much crochet time in last week, only worked on Part 6 of the Elements CAL which I showed you in a previous post.
My simple pleasure:::
Researching different subjects I find interesting when I'm watching a TV series. I have this habit that if I'm watching a series and something catches my eye, especially when it pertains to history, I have to research and learn more about it. Just really enjoy that :)
Lesson learned the past week:::
That I'm so far down the ladder in my Faith and Grace, and that it's not going to be an easy or quick journey back to where I used to be. I'm pushing through though.
From the camera:::
This Marley is the cutest thing hahaha Here is is laying with his favorite baby.
Me, health wise. Also spiritually so that I really learn the lessons I'm being taught and apply them to my daily life.
