Good morning, and a very Happy Monday to you all!
How was your weekend? I sure hope you were able to get a lot of family time in, and also were able to relax and get ready for the new week ahead.
Our weekend was spent cleaning up after the snow storm. The amount of dead birds we have found, is quite heartbreaking. I will be honest, I can't dispose of them, I don't have the heart to, so Curt does it for me.
Thankfully, all the snow is now gone, the streets are now safe to drive, and our grocery stores are starting to get shipments in. Thank God!
Anyway, I'm hoping to get a few blog posts done this week, and I would love to finally make it over to my food blog and update it as well. Fingers crossed.
Have a blessed week friends and thank you once again for stopping by and participating.
Here in Texas, we are all very glad to see the snow behind us, and are very much looking forward to our normal temperatures. This week brings quite a bit of rain, and I do love rain so looking forward to that.

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
Exhausted. My insomnia has been so bad lately. I would love to lay down, fall asleep and stay asleep all night. But mostly I fall asleep, and in two hours I'm awake and can't get back to sleep. It's frustrating.

♥♥From the camera♥♥
Elliott is getting so big, and he is finally starting to calm down too. My plants especially appreciate this. Hahah
I just love watching him play. One of his favorite toys? A ball of aluminum foil that he throws around, drags around and has so much fun with. He will play with it for an hour or more at a time.
♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
It is still dark outside but the sun is starting to rise. Marley is asleep on the couch next to me, my husband is about to walk out the door to work. Kids are sleeping, but Jasmine will be up for work soon, and Elliott is laying by the back door watching the birds on the feeder.
I need to give the house a good deep clean, so I'll be sitting down today to work on a list, so I can tackle each room during the week.
♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Read and crochet, as always, but I'm just going to throw in a couple naps, if I can. I have never been a napper, never napped, always felt like they made me super cranky. But with my insomnia lately, I need them to be able to function, so hopefully, if I have time, I will try to get in a quick nap in between homemaking chores or homeschooling.
♥♥Something I want to share♥♥
Bringing you another video from the channel The Lime Tree. This one is called Country Life A Food with Fruit of Paradise Fesenjoon. Hope you enjoy :)
♥♥Devotional, inspirational, prayer list or Bible verse♥♥
