NOTE: Seems that Mister Linky is being a bit difficult to work with today, I am so sorry for that. I have deleted it, and reinstalled it again. Hopefully this fixes it, if not, please let me know and I will contact the support team to see what is going on.
ALSO: I changed the blog template a few days ago, and I'm not sure if I like it. (leaning more towards not liking it, so you will probably see a new template this week, sorry about that, it's hard to find the right template sometimes)
Good morning sweet friends, hope you've had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was good, we got quite a bit of yard work done, some fruit trees planted and the new garden area tilled and ready to go. Actually, my husband did most of the work because it was so windy outside, and with my bad allergies, I can't be out there for long. But, I helped as much as I could.
We have a full week ahead, more projects inside and outside the house. Work, schooling and the usual day to day activities.
I wish you all a good and blessed week ahead!
Spring is starting to pop up around here. Our temperatures are warming up, and I think we are finally done with the cold, thank God.

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
I'm doing well, aside from the usual allergy symptoms. We've had high pollen in our area, and that is obviously making my rhinitis, a total mess. Aside from the allergies, I'm good, been able to sleep the past two nights which does wonders for a person's soul, doesn't it?
♥♥On the breakfast plate♥♥
I've had a cup of coffee with Peppermint Mocha creamer, but nothing to eat yet. Will either have some toast or make some more yummy Instant Pot Oatmeal.

♥♥From the camera♥♥
I'm really getting back into bird photography. We have so many beautiful species around our property, and it's wonderful just watching them going about their business.
♥♥Looking around the house♥♥
The sun is starting to rise much earlier, which is always a sign that Spring is around the corner. Right now, the sun is streaming in through the windows and leaving the most beautiful golden light.
I need to tidy up the living room and dining room, we were in and out this weekend, and things just got left on the dining table, on the coffee table. Couch pillows are thrown about, blankets are left in crumpled messes, and there are some glasses and mugs that need to be taken into the kitchen.
I also need to vacuum and re clean the carpet right by the back door. We had a lot of fog this weekend and high humidity, which made everything outside wet. Working in the garden, meant a lot of in and out, and that is rough on the carpets, no matter how well we clean our shoes on the mat or rug.
♥♥To relax this week, I will♥♥
Remember that crochet granny square blanket I started? I wasn't feeling the color combo, so I ripped it all out a few days ago, and started again last night. Hope this time I stick with it. So that is what I'll be doing this week in my spare time.
♥♥Something I want to share♥♥
I have another really good channel to share with you all, this one is called Country Life Vlog, and follows a families village life. It focuses mainly on the food they eat and the way they cook, which of course is a favorite for me, but I think you will all enjoy it too.
In today's video, they show us how they make their traditional Azerbaijani Baklava.
♥♥Devotional, inspirational, prayer list or Bible verse♥♥
Reading from my devotional today, for March 1st, it is called Eternal Perspective. The verse is from Titus 3: 6-7, and I'm also including the prayer below.
I know Lord, this world is not my home; I am only here for a short time. You have given me the priceless gift of eternal life through Your Son Jesus. Keep the promise of Heaven in my heart, and help me to pass through this world with joy, with perspective, with thanksgiving, and with praise on my lips for you. Amen.
