Good morning everyone, come on in out of the cold. It is so windy and chilly this morning, I'm thankful I don't have to go anywhere at all.
Last night we had family and Jasmine's boyfriend over for dinner, and had a really good time. It's always wonderful getting together, enjoying good food and having a lot of laughs, especially during times when one of our own is going through a difficult patch. It helps to be with family!
I have a home day today, Jasmine is off thank goodness, so I plan on catching up with some food prepping for the week, and making some more paper stars for decoration.
Hope you all have a fantastic week ahead. Let's get right on with our Happy Homemaker Monday for today.
It is 40 degrees right now but the real feel is 30. Our weather is still all over the place, one day 80 degrees and the next, 50. Here's a look at this week's temperature.
♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥
I'm feeling really well, got good sleep last night and know that I have a home day ahead, so really happy.
♥♥On my mind♥♥Again, the holidays. Especially Christmas shopping and gifts and planning the food.
♥♥Something Christmas related I've done the past few days♥♥
On Saturday morning we bought our Christmas tree. It always makes me so happy when that day happens. There is something about the real tree, the smell, the pine needles, the decorating, that just makes me smile.
♥♥Christmas movie I watched♥♥
I watched Home Alone with my little great niece Eva. She loves that movie so much and hearing her laugh is just the sweetest thing.
♥♥What I'm wearing today♥♥
Well, at this moment I am still in bed, in my warm pajamas. Not sure what I'll wear later, but probably something really comfy.

Process the tomatoes I have in the fridge. Some will be made into sauce and I think others will be used for Fried Green Tomatoes.Put the table away from last night's dinner.
