Happy Homemaker Monday
Well, I missed last week, but I am back now!!!!
Today is supposed to be about 45 degrees today, and 30s and 40s all week long.
Right now I am:
Taking a quick break before fixing lunch, sitting on our comfy couch.
I have so much to do today to get this house back in order.
On my reading pile:::
The Widow of Larkspur Inn by Lawanna Blackwell, and Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
On my tv:::
I really need to get all caught up on Downton Abbey.
Favorite Blog post this week (mine or other):::
The Nerd Nest - My Funny Valentine As I read this, I laughed my hiney off!
Something fun to share:::
Rylie turned one last week and we threw her a big birthday party on Saturday with the whole family. Instead of the stress from making my own cake for the party. We went out to eat and ordered a cake from a friend. She did an amazing job. It tasted delicious and looked wonderful!

On my to do list:::
Laundry, lots and lots of laundry
Sweep the kitchen
Clean the glass
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Some crochet pot holders and an embroidered wall hanging.
I don't really have anything at this moment.
Looking around the house:::
Rylie is sleeping soundly in her playpen, Ben and Sydney are cleaning their playroom. The dishwasher is running and there are baskets of laundry in the hallway waiting for me to wash, or fold and put away. The oven is preheating so I can reheat some leftover pizza. I'm trying to use my microwave less and less.
From the camera:::
Our first Ash Wednesday.
On my prayer list:::
Nobody specific, just those that need it.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. ~ Mark 11:23
