{ A kitchen day and a cleaning tip }


First and foremost, I have to show you what my husband got me yesterday.

We don't really buy much into the whole Valentine's Day thing, mainly because we both find it a tad ridiculous, in the sense that you shouldn't need one specific day to spend tons of money and tell your significant other, how much you love them.

But with that said, every once in a while, we will surprise each other with a little something.

Curt came home from work yesterday filled with surprises for everyone, including Marley who got his very own big teddy bear to play with.  He was so excited!!!!

From USA TODAY bestselling author Colleen Coble comes the third book in her beloved Lavender Tides series.

Her mother lied about her identity and her husband wasn’t who she thought he was—can Bailey even trust herself anymore?

Running for her life in the wake of her mother’s murder, Bailey Fleming escapes to the only place she can think of—a remote, dilapidated cabin in Lavender Tides. Intending to finally get to the truth behind the lies of her past, Bailey only finds more questions when bodies are discovered near her cabin hideout along with traces of a dangerous human trafficking ring. In an unlikely partnership with FBI agent Lance Phoenix, Bailey races to understand the mystery surrounding her life and circumstances before the murderer tracks her down.

{ Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano - TLC Book Tour

Hardcover: 432 Pages
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (February 5, 2019)

From the RITA Award–winning author of Five Days in Skye comes a sweet, romantic treat that will leave you hungry for more.

Baker and pastry chef Melody Johansson has always believed in finding the positive in every situation, but seven years after she moved to Denver, she can’t deny that she’s stuck in a rut. One relationship after another has ended in disaster, and her classical French training is being wasted on her night job in a mediocre chain bakery. Then the charming and handsome private pilot Justin Keller lands on the doorstep of her workplace in a snowstorm, and Melody feels like it’s a sign that her luck is finally turning around.

Justin is intrigued by the lively bohemian baker, but the last thing he’s looking for is a relationship. His own romantic failures have proven that the demands of his job are incompatible with meaningful connections, and he’s already pledged his life savings to a new business venture across the country an island air charter in Florida with his sister and brother-in-law.

{ Fog, running around and a little sewing }


Woke up to quite a thick blanket of fog and chilly temperatures.  The picture below was taken as the fog was starting to lift, because about 10 minutes prior to this, I couldn't even see the trees in the yard.

{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 02/11/2019 }

Good Morning all :)  Hope you've had a good weekend.

I had a really slow, laid back kind of weekend.  We didn't go anywhere at all, just stayed home and relaxed, which is my favorite way to spend Saturday and Sunday.

Here we are now, Monday morning, a clean slate and a fresh week before us.  I do have a lot of housecleaning to do today, as well as some computer work and some baking as well.  Looking forward to that :)

Last week was a bit of a bust for me, as far as daily blogging, and I explained all that in my previous post which you can read here.  This week will be a lot better, and hopefully back to normal blogging.

Hope you all have a beautiful blessed week ahead.Well let's get going and see what we have ahead for our week.

{ Oh goodness, it's been a few days }

I was doing brilliantly, posting every day, and then Wednesday rolled around and it's been a bit of a blur.  I was frustrated with myself for not being able to continue the daily blogging, but I have to remind myself that there will be days, weeks or even months, where this is going to happen.....and guess what?

It's ok.

So where have I been?

Well basically driving my girl to work, back and forth, working on schooling with my son and taking care of business around the house.

{ Absolutely gorgeous day }

February 4, 2019

Oh my friends, I know that a lot of you are still dealing with snow and horrid temperatures, and I feel almost bad posting about my day, because we have had the best weather for this time of year.

Woke up to sunny blue skies, the freshest of breezes and the highs for the day of 75 degrees.  It was pure magic and made me really wish for Spring and Summer.

{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 02/04/2019 }

Good Morning all :)  Hope you've had a good weekend.  Mine was pretty good, Jasmine worked Saturday so  took her in and then had to go to AT&T to deal with our phone account and some things we had to take care of.  Thankfully that went pretty well and didn't take much time, within 30 minutes we were done and on our way.

Our next stop was Walmart for a few items we needed, like milk, juice, I needed some orange thread for some sewing and a few 2 liter sodas.  We really only have soda on the weekend, so it's a nice treat for us.

The rest of the weekend we were home, although Curt treated the kids and I to a nice dinner at Applebees last night.  We don't go out to dinner very often, and when we do it's once in a blue moon and we actually save up for that, so it's always a nice treat and something we look forward to.

So last week Nick started getting a sore throat again and headache, he was not feeling well at all for about 3 days, then got better, but passed it on to Jasmine.  She was so unwell for 3 days, had fever the first day and is now fine.  Guess who got it now?  Yep, me again.  The whole head/sinus cold is back with a vengeance.  I feel well overall, but the sinus thing is really frustrating, and my voice is croaky.
Anyway, I'm hoping to kick this real quick, seems to be going around again and only lasts about two to three days.  Hopefully Curt avoids it.

Well let's get going and see what we have ahead for our week.
