Happy Homemaker Monday
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! Sorry I'm super late today, I just have been really busy.
As I look outside my window:::
Today turned out to be a beautiful day. It was a little chilly this morning but now it's about 50 degrees.
Right now I am:::
Sitting at the kitchen table, waiting for my timer to go off to take out the Irish Soda Bread I have in the oven and I'll be putting in the white bread and some potatoes, carrots, and cabbage soon.
Thinking and pondering:::
Finally getting to put together all of the baby stuff. I'm so excited.
On my bedside table:::
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (I'm so in love with this creepy twisted book)
My flowers and a water bottle or two
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
The Little Couple
Rizzoli and Isles
Law and Order SVU
Here comes Honey Boo Boo
When Calls the Heart
Real Housewives of Atlanta
My Five Wives
Long Island Medium
The sound of the dishwasher and the kids show on TV in the living room.

Monday - Corned Beef, Potatoes, Carrots and Cabbage, Irish Soda Bread, and No-time Bread

Thursday - Nothing, Shawn may go to basketball, the baby's dresser should be delivered
Friday - Nothing, maybe Costco
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
My Crochet Mood Blanket is pretty much it right now.
My simple pleasure:::
Snuggling my husband. Because we are so busy with our kids and our lives (work, housework, etc) we don't get the chance often, but I like to just snuggle together and watch something on TV together or lay in bed and snuggle and talk about our days. Even if means we get to sleep late because of it.
Lesson learned the past week:::
You never know how much time you have. Life can be over in an instant. Hug your loved ones every chance you get and tell them that you love them.
Looking around the house:::
The house could use a little cleaning. Rylie's bed needs making (she had an accident and I washed her sheets and comforter), and I have laundry that is folded on the ottoman to put away but really it's not too bad.
From the camera:::
A friend of mine who passed this weekend. Her kids, stepson, and all of the family and friends she left behind.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
"Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going." ~ John 14:1-4
