But nevertheless, it's a new week, a blank slate and a chance to right any wrongs, throw all the negativity and bad feelings to the side, and start fresh.
Many people dislike Monday, but I actually love it and have always enjoyed Monday mornings. It kick starts my week, it means a fresh clean house, and a whole 5 days to get things done.
I don't have much going on this week, Jasmine's schedule is a little less frantic which I'm glad about, but I do have to take her for an eye exam this morning, thankfully just up the street so it won't take very long.
I am starting this morning with some youtube videos playing in the background while I work on getting this post up.
Have a wonderful blessed week, friends, and thank you again for participating, for sharing, for joining in and for being so kind to each other. I really do have the best blog readers. :)
The Weather:::I've started turning off the air conditioner for quite a long time during the day, thankfully the temperatures are still hot but manageable. We have had a ton of rain the past 2 weeks, which I've gladly welcomed, although my husband doesn't like it as much because it means the 3 acres that need mowing is constantly growing. We are past the triple digits and though some days we're in the 90's, we are also starting to plateau on 80's and even some 70's thrown in. Thank goodness.

Eye exam with Jasmine
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::Didn't get around to it last week, but am really wanting to sew up some pillow covers for the couches.
Looking around the house:::It's quiet. The kids are both still asleep and Curt is off to work. I need to open all the curtains and some of the windows, to let in some fresh air. The house is not dirty or untidy, but I do want to dust today.
From the camera:::Just love all the touches of Fall around the house.
On my prayer list:::♥ My mother in law Pat
♥ My husband. He is adopted and he just did his DNA test and all of a sudden a lot of things are coming to light. He is struggling to take it all in and doesn't quite know how to go about it all.
