Mine was nice and quiet. It is also a long weekend for us, at least for hubby as he is off work today, but Jasmine is working so in a few hours we will be taking her in.
I apologize for no Blogtober posts this weekend, our internet went out , we've been having some issues with it lately, and it culminated with the hubster having to climb up into the attic and looking for electrical boxes and whatnot. Anyway, yes, a bit of a crazy moment but it is back now, and I'll just pick right back up today with the Blogtober.
Anyway, let's get going with our Happy Homemaker Monday.
