All is right with the world when I am able to participate in Happy Homemaker Monday! Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom is our weekly host and l love to "link up" with the other bloggers who participate in Happy Homemaker Monday:) So, let's get started!
As I look outside my window:::
The weather is glorious! Blue sky, sunshine, green grass, beautiful flowers--ahhh, Spring! I think the temperature will be in the low 70s (F) today but building into the 80s by the end of the week! I am sooo ready!!!
Right now I am:::
Sitting in my chair, still in my jammies:) Just finished breakfast, read my email (and just a little Pinterest). I need to get on with my day!
Thinking and pondering:::
***Same as last week and I am no further along with the project:(***
About all the cards I need to get made in the next few days! Shall I call this a "card crunch"?!! Some people go out and buy cards when they are needed but my family and friends have come to expecthandmade cards from me so I need to get them done even if I'm not feeling particularly motivated! I really wasn't motivated ALL last week but need to get motivated asap!
On my bedside table:::
Living Life Undaunted Devotional by Christine Caine
The Dangers of Contemplative Prayer by Howard Peth
Light on Snow by Anita Shreve
Joni & Ken by Ken & Joni Eareckson Tada (family read aloud)
On my TV this week:::
I plan to do a lot of reading this week.
Sound of the sprinklers outside and Rocky snoring--gotta love a Bulldog's snore:)
On my menu for this week:::
I don't have a clue what we're eating this week! Time to go grocery shopping, I think! Lots of food in the house but nothing to eat; ever been there?
On my to do list:::
- Laundry--always and forever
- Go through clothes closet and purge!!!
- Organizing in craft room
- Make about 30 cards!
- Clean guest apartment and sauna
Happening this week:::
Happy Stampers on Wednesday:) Love spending time with the ladies being creative!
What I am creating:::
Right now just cards but should have a lot to show over the next week! Really, this week I will!
My simple pleasure:::
A day home alone...occasionally! I love my family but sometimes it is just nice to have a whole day to myself!
This is more of a beauty tip: I use coconut oil to wash my face! It is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral! How can you beat that?!!! In addition to washing my face with coconut oil, I also use it as a moisturizer when I need one (usually don't when washing with coconut oil). It makes my skin amazingly soft and free of blemishes.
Looking around the house:::
Table in the dining room looks better than last week! Lol I need to make the bed. The dogs have been kind...only a few toys lying around:)
From the camera:::
Hubby got two of these huge flower baskets for our deck...so pretty!
- My sister still recovering from hip replacement surgery, then broken femur surgery, then blood clot! Still improving but not out of the woods yet!
- Church family still needing a house
- Elderly couple having serious health issues
- Friend selling (sold) her house then going to live near her son and DIL; needs to find motor home to live in.
