Mine has been good but busy, isn't it always? Lots of painting and fixing and house related stuff, but also filled with tons of Christmas movies. Yes, I'm already on it, I started last week Wednesday and I've been watching at least one or two a night, the Hallmark movies that is.
It's so funny that they are predictable and you know exactly what is going to happen, and yet, I love watching them and can't stop. lol
Anyway, it is a new week, we have a blank slate to write our stories, so let's make it a good one.
Thank you all who come in every week to participate, and a big hello to all the new participants.
Let's see what we have going on this week.
The weather outside is::::The temperature is currently 50 degrees but the real feel is 46. The wind is howling outside and we actually have a high wind warning going on. We are also expecting a cold front to come in so I guess it's time to bundle up.
Monday - Cloudy/Wind, 48
Tuesday - Sunny, 43
Wednesday - Sunny, 59
Thursday - Sunny, 56
Friday - Sunny, 58

On the breakfast plate this morning::::Just enjoying a hot cup of coffee with White Chocolate Raspberry creamer. Not sure what I will eat, not hungry right now and can't think of anything I feel like.
As I look outside my window:::It is still dark outside so aside from the high wind noises, I can't see a single thing.
Right now I am::::Sitting in bed, drinking my coffee, listening to the howling wind and getting this post typed up.
As I look around the house::::The house is still asleep, so it's pretty dark. There are twinkly lights on the mantel and the Fall tree lit in the corner. It looks so cozy in here.
On today's to do list::::Laundry....All the laundry has been washed, just need to do one load of kitchen towels.
Cleaning....Had our real estate agent come over yesterday morning, so Curt and I zipped through and gave the house a really and I mean REALLY good clean. I have nothing to do today as it's sparkly clean. Yay!!!

New recipe I tried or want to try this week::::We tried the Chicken and Dumplings last week and it was a hit. The Chili Frito Pie was just ok, it was basically just chili with frito chips. I don't have any new recipes planned at the moment, but I do have to work on my next menu plan so I can grocery shop on Friday.

Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::
♥♥♥ Curt's stepfather is still needing open heart surgery, but there have been a few complications and he is now dealing with some gallbladder issues and an open ulcer. He is currently in rehabilitation gaining his strength so he can have his heart surgery done. Please keep him in your prayers.
♥♥♥ My mother in law and her continuing fight with breast cancer.
♥♥♥ Our home buying journey. The VA Appraiser should be coming out sometime this week. We have a projected closing date as well. I have to say that as much as I would love to buy this house for myself, I mostly want this for my husband. He has worked so hard his whole life, gave 22 years to the military and is now still working with the Air Force, training our future airmen. This is a dream that I want for HIM, it's something he has wanted for many years and I would love to see it come to fruition. So please keep us in your prayers.
* The past few weeks I have had to go in and delete links that are NOT related to Happy Homemaker Monday. Folks, I have asked repeatedly to not add random links to other posts on your blogs, or just a link to your blog in general. It is a lot of work for me to sit and go through and manually delete them from the linky, and it's also incredibly rude to the other participants who are just looking for the Happy Homemaker Monday posts. Please be respectful!!!
