{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 10/19/2020 }

Good morning everyone, welcome back.
It is  a pretty chilly Monday morning, well, chilly for us here in the South.  It is 46 with a high of only 65 today.  I'm ok with that.

I hope you've all had a good weekend, hope you got plenty of rest and are ready for the new week ahead.  
I need to get dressed and get Jasmine off to work, so I'm not going to blabber on about anything, but rather get right into our Happy Homemaker Monday.

♥♥The Weather♥♥ 

It is just 60 degrees so it feels amazing outside.  The rest of the week we are staying in the 60s and 70s, which means I no longer have to walk around feeling like I'm melting.   

Monday - 65
Tuesday - 79
Wednesday - 85
Thursday -  87
Friday - 62
Saturday -  62
Sunday - 78

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥

I am a bit tired, but feeling good considering yesterday I was sick in bed with some sort of a stomach bug going on. 

♥♥On my mind♥♥ 

I am starting a list of all the projects we want to do around the house.  I'm going to do it room by room so that it will be easier to check off the list as we go.

 ♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥

Cup of coffee with Sugar Cookie Creamer, that's all for now.

♥♥From the camera♥♥

Wrapping up a book to mail off for Paperbackswap.  Love using this website to trade my used books for ones I want.

♥♥Looking around the house♥♥

It is still dark, both kids are asleep though Jasmine will be off very soon to get ready for work.  Curt is off to work already, and both Marley and Elliott are asleep as well.  

I love Fall mornings, crisp air, slow start, and the smell of coffee permeating the air.  

♥♥New recipe I tried last week, or one that we really enjoyed♥♥

Nothing new last week.  Have a few coming up from one of my new Gooseberry Patch books. 

♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥

Read, read and read.  Really enjoying reading again and my new books should be coming in.  I had a few credits left on Paperbackswap so used them to order 4 books. 

 ♥♥Something I want to share♥♥ 

I bring you a shorter video today, but really interesting nonetheless.  Pringle of Scotland: Short Film: The History of Hand Knitting. 


 ♥♥On my prayer list♥♥

My nephews broken leg.
My brother's dog Jax, he has a pulled muscle on his back.
My other brother's dog Dexter who is fighting cancer.
Praying for our President, for protection over him always but especially the next few weeks.
