I think that we are all struggling a bit in one way or another. For my children and family members who suffer from depression, it's getting harder to deal with the lockdowns. I am really hoping and praying that the country opens back up soon.
I've lost track of the time, no clue exactly how long we've been stuck indoors, and half the time I don't even what day of the week it is, unless my husband tells me since he is still working every day.
Anyway let's not focus on that anymore. How was your Easter? We had a very quiet slow one, very reminiscent of the ones we used to have when we were still active duty military. I wasn't going to make a big meal or even set the table nicely, but I decided last minute to go ahead and do that. No matter what is happening outside these 4 walls, inside we are still the same people and still celebrate our Lord on Easter Sunday.
So we ended up having a very nice meal, with a cutesy table setting too. I hope your Easter was a wonderful one as well.
Now, let's switch gears and get right into our Happy Homemaker Monday.
So cold this morning. We have a cold front coming in and there's even talk of snow. In April. In Texas. The planet is definitely confused at the moment.
Monday - AM clouds, PM sun, 52
Tuesday - AM showers, 49
Wednesday - Partly cloudy, 62
Thursday - Mostly Sunny, 72
Friday - Mostly cloudy, 57
Saturday - Partly cloudy, 70
Sunday - Scattered Thunderstorms, 74
♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
Woke up with a bit of a headache, due to the allergies and the constant change in weather. Actually, woke up, tried to speak to my husband and didn't have much of a voice, but it was fine 2 minutes later LOL
♥♥On my mind♥♥
I have my mammogram appointment on Friday. Aside from it being one of those appointments that no woman look forward to, I'm a little apprehensive about going to the hospital. It's such a strange feeling, when you are anxious about walking into your hospital for an appointment.
♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
As always, I've had a cup of coffee. For breakfast I am having one of my Honey Butter Rolls. I made them yesterday for our Easter dinner and they were AMAZING. I've posted the recipe on the food blog already.

Finishing up The Ancestors for a book review, and have another 5 waiting to be read and reviewed too, including these two:

♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
I have my windows open this morning, and from my spot on the bed I can see the sun rising outside. The sky is a mixture of dark clouds and an orange glow, so pretty.
The house is quiet and pretty dark at the moment.
I don't have a lot to clean today, I've been keeping on top of it every day so it's easier to maintain.
♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥
I am planning on washing all the curtains in the house. It's not that I don't like that chore, it's just one of those chores that take all day to do.
♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Nothing has changed, so there will be more sewing, crocheting and reading. Hopefully some gardening as well.
♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
* The President and our country.
* People all over the world facing who are currently stuck indoors. I know many are suffering with mental illness and this lockdown is not easy at all. I pray for God to bring them peace and comfort through this.
Sometimes when we pray for protection, God answers with perspective.
