Hello my friends, how are you all doing this Monday morning?
I woke up to such a beautiful sunrise, pink and purple skies and the most gorgeous morning. I've had my cup of coffee, have gotten the kitten taken care of and am now going to sit and hopefully get this post up without him jumping on the laptop.
I hope you all have a blessed Monday and that your week is filled with love, blessings and joy.
The heat has been unbearable, my poor tomato and zucchini plants are suffering. Thankfully we are not hitting triple digits again this week, but still staying in upper 90's.
Monday - A mix of clouds and sun, 97
Tuesday - Mostly sunny, 94
Wednesday - Partly cloudy, 90
Thursday - Mostly sunny, 93
Friday - Sunny, 94
Saturday - Mostly Sunny, 93
Sunday - Mostly Sunny, 94
♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
I am feeling good, last week was not a good one for me, too many allergy flare ups and perimenopause symptoms. Thankful to have gotten a pretty good night's sleep and waking up feeling semi normal.
♥♥On my mind♥♥
Menu planning, thinking of inexpensive meals. Also thinking about the youtube videos with my weekly meals and when to start those up again etc. Just a bunch of work related stuff, my husband's job situation is still not resolved but God has been working in other ways and we are seeing it come to light in our lives.
♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
Just had my coffee, will probably have some toast or a slice of the Zucchini Bread I mad over the weekend.
♥♥On my reading pile♥♥
I am now in the first book of Samuel in my Bible. Also almost done with Say Yes to What's Next.
The Doctor of Aleppo
Loving Well in a Broken World
♥♥On my tv♥♥
This doesn't change much at all, mainly because I tend to stick to the same kind of videos on Youtube. I haven't really tuned into the normal TV channels, in a long time and don't think I plan to for a while.

♥♥From the camera♥♥
Back to crocheting which I absolutely love. This is a new blanket I'm working on, using up yarn I already had on hand.
♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
Curt is in the office, teleworking, replying to emails etc. Nicholas is in the office on his computer playing a game. Jasmine is still asleep, she works at 11am today so she is sleeping in a little later.
Marley is sleeping by the boys in the office and Elliott has the crazies so he is dashing back and forth around the house.
The house is looking a little dark because it's cloudy outside, but here shortly I'll open all the curtains and some of the windows to let in a bit of cool air, before the heat of the day kicks in.
♥♥Chore I'm not looking forward to today, or this week♥♥
I need to give the bathrooms a really good cleaning, like a deep clean, and that is not a chore I enjoy. Much as I love being a homemaker, bathrooms are not my thing.
♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Keep reading, reading and reading. Love that in some of our desert seasons in life, God uses those moments to remind us to do the things we love, the things we stopped doing because we were too busy with other non essential things.
Reading and crocheting are at the top of my list and I have renewed love for both, which makes me very happy.
Which things have you stopped doing or given up, that you have recently picked back up, or wish to get back into?
♥♥Something I want to share♥♥
This is a pretty short video but I found it so interesting and thought some of you might as well. I love watching things like this on Youtube, the history of the world is so rich and it's fun to go back and see how things were done in different eras.
♥♥On my prayer list♥♥
**** Our finances and my husband's situation. The final decision on your job has still not been made, he is awaiting a meeting with the new commander. We are leaving it in God's hands, and we do have other options available. God is so good.
**** Our country, the President.
**** Our police men and women, first responders and military.
