{ Blog 365 #79 - Happy Homemaker Monday - 03/20/2023 }

Good morning everyone, and a very happy Monday to you all.   
This post is going up a bit later than usual, I had to run some errands this morning, and am only now getting to sit down and work on our Happy Homemaker Monday. 
So with that said, let's just get right on with it.

Sun is shining.  There are birds eating the deer corn, and flying back and forth from the ground to the trees.      

Right now I am:::
Typing up this post and listening to a podcast.         

Thinking and pondering:::
About my ongoing car problems.  We had to order a new part online, and when it arrives tomorrow, we will install it.  Hopefully it fixes the coolant leak issue, once and for all.

At the moment, my coffee cup, water bottle and tv remote.

My simple pleasure:::
Crocheting.  I don't crochet as I used to, I actually miss it so much and hope to get back to crocheting every day. 
Looking around the house:::
Elliott and Kaia are both asleep on my bed.  The baby chicks are asleep in their brooder.  
I have a comforter draped over my couches, I always drape them over chairs or couches, once I've taken them out of the dryer, because often times they are not completely dry.  This one is dry now, so I need to fold it and pack it away.      

From the camera:::
These sweet babies have gotten sooooo big.  I can't wait to show you how they're doing now.  

Bible verse, Devotional, Quote:::

“Those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord.” --  Proverbs 8:35

On my prayer list:::
My mom Jacinta - for her brain atrophy and early onset of dementia.
Diane Luckett - she is stable after being hit by a drunk driver.  She does however have a long road ahead, broken pelvis, leg, arm and wrist.  Head trauma and neck trauma.  
Terri Luckett and their children - her husband and children
