Happy Homemaker Monday

The Weather:::
It was in the 50s this morning and it dropped.  It's 36 degrees now.

Right now I am: 

Snuggling on the couch with my napping Sydney while Ben and Rylie play on the floor.


How I don't even want to get off of the couch.  I'm having a rough day.

On my reading pile:::
Still trying to read The Widow of Larkspur Inn, when I get the chance, and Little House in the Big Woods.

On my tv:::
Been watching Pride and Prejudice for the bizillionth time. 
Maybe watching some Chicago Fire or Downton Abbey with the husband tonight.

Favorite Blog post this week (mine or other):::
It's not a specific post, but I fell in love with a new craft blog.  The Purl Bee

Something fun to share:::
I found this awesome new blog.  It's in german, but google does a wonderful job of translating it for me.  Town Country Home  I'm in love with all the beautiful pictures.

On the menu for this week:::
Monday - Chipotle
Tuesday - Lime chicken with oranges and pineapple
Wednesday - Sweet and Sour pork chops
Thursday -  Potato Broccoli Bacon Egg Casserole
Friday - Chicken Sausages and hot dogs
Saturday -
Sunday - Chicken and Beef tacos

On my to do list:::

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Same things I've been working on.  Specifically my hexagon blanket. 

Homemaking Tips:::
Fresh flowers!  I love flowers.  I love the bright colors and their beautiful smell.  They make me happy.  I took my 2 year old daughter to the grocery store with me to pick some flowers and she found a pot of hyacinth that were gorgeous!  They look amazing on my mantle.  We also picked up some tulips and a pot of mint.  I'm so happy and ready to fill my house with plants and flowers, inside and outside.

Looking around the house:::
The washer and dryer are loudly going and the kids are screaming.  The house isn't too big of a mess, but I'll definitely have some picking up to do this evening.

From the camera:::
I'm so in love with my new tattoo.  My dad died about 4 1/2 years ago and it was so nice to memorialize him with his handwriting on my wrist.  Also, what a great bonding thing for my sister and I to do.  She got one also.

On my prayer list:::
Myself!  I stupidly put off picking up my antidepressant for 3 or 4 days and have been suffering awful withdrawls even though I started taking it again yesterday.  Lesson learned, now to get through this rough patch.

Bible verse, Devotional:::
Be brave and steadfast; have no fear or dread of them, for it is the Lord, your God, who marches with you; he will never fail you or forsake you. ~ Deuteronomy 31:6

Beautiful tattoo, how sweet :)

Sorry about your pills, but glad you picked them back up and are on the right track again.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful week.

It's amazing to me that on the day my wife does not want to get up off the couch, she does the freaking laundry and cleans the entire house. If today is a lazy day, I'd hate to see a productive day here.

You're amazing, honey.
