Good morning dear friends, how was your weekend?
It is Monday morning, we are very quickly moving towards the end of January already, which is a bit unnerving isn't it?
Nick and I are again sick with a cold. Blimey, we just had a cold beginning of December and here we are again. I've been hitting it as hard as I can, especially with all the talk of flu going around.
Right, new week, blank slate. Let's leave behind all the nonsense from last week and focus on putting forth a positive outlook and attitude towards the week before us. Deal?
By the way, I apologize for having to moderate comments, but I've been getting so many spam ones lately. I honestly wish Blogger would enable us to block certain accounts from commenting, but unfortunately we are left with having to either put up with an influx of horrid comments, or turn to comment moderation.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I've had to turn it on, at least for the foreseeable future until these spam comments calm down a bit.
Now that we got the business part out of the way, let's see what is happening in our Happy Homemaker Mondays.
The craziest weather. Plain and simple!
Rain for two days, super chilly days with fog and 20 degrees, followed by 75 degree days. I give up lol It is currently 29 degrees with a high of 56 for today.
Monday - Sunny, 56
Tuesday - Cloudy, 51
Wednesday - Rainy, 48
Thursday - Partly cloudy, Showers, 57
Friday - Sunny, 56
Saturday - Partly cloudy, 60
Sunday - Partly cloudy, 63
♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
Well, like I have a knife stuck in my throat. Very congested, and tired. When I can't breathe through my nose, I can't sleep so last night was interesting to say the least. Hubby is taking Jasmine to work this morning and has ordered me back to bed. I am so blessed with the husband I have.
♥♥On my mind♥♥
Just trying to get through this cold and thinking about ways to hit it even harder. Also thinking about the work we are doing out back, we've moved on to our second project since buying the house. I'm so excited.
♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
Currently sipping on a hot cup of coffee with Vanilla Creamer. I don't know what I'll eat, breakfast is not on my mind and honestly the way I'm feeling, I can't imagine eating anything at all.

♥♥From the camera♥♥
I love curtains blowing in the wind, and this weekend, I was able to enjoy just that. The temperatures were warm enough to open the windows and there was the most gorgeous breeze coming in.
♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
I gave it a good clean yesterday, so it's not needing my attention today. Thank the Lord, because I really don't feel like doing any sort of cleaning.
♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥
I need to wash my windows, they look awful, but it is not a chore I particularly like. Not looking forward to it at all......that and the carpet cleaning. Guess I have two chores I'm not looking forward to this week.
♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Read and crochet. I've been enjoying working on a new blanket, nothing that requires too much thinking.
♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
The President, our country.
My son and I with our colds.
There are many others I pray for on a daily basis, people I know, people I don't know. I think if I were to name them all, we would be here until next week.
I saw this quote and thought it was so simple but yet so effective. Thought you all would enjoy it too.
