Happy Homemaker Monday

Good morning!  I had a very productive weekend and while we had some rough patches, I'm fully ready to get into this week.  Hope this morning finds you all well and rested.

The weather outside is::::
It's incredibly frigid today!  Had to park in the lot at Ben's school and run in with him today.  By the time I was back at the car, my face burned and my hands were like ice.  At least most of this week will be 30s instead of the 20s we had all last week.  I really can't complain much, except that we barely got any snow last week.

On the breakfast plate this morning::::
So far, just a hot cup of spiced cider.  Might eat some yogurt and granola in a moment though.

As I look outside my window:::
Every thing is covered in a layer of white icy frost that won't be going away today.  Even though we have no snow, it does feel like winter is here.  The sun is shining and it's beautiful.  I'm so excited for winter to be here.

Right now I am::::
Sitting on the couch, sipping hot spiced cider, watching the Today show on the TV.  Apparently One Direction is on.  Sydney and Rylie are singing loudly with them and dancing while Scotland is sitting in her exersaucer watching them and bouncing along.  It's something else...

As I look around the house::::
I have a couple baskets of laundry to fold and put away.  I need to vacuum and desperately need to dust.  We had a productive weekend that left most of the house incredibly clean.  Shawn even got down on his hands and knees and scrubbed the kitchen floor.

On today's to do list::::
Laundry.....I have about 2 or 3 baskets to fold and put away.
Cleaning.....I'm' planning to dust and vacuum and maybe clean the glass.
Dance.... Sydney has dance this evening clear across town.
Meeting.... Tonight, we have a parents meeting for Ben to possibly wrestle this winter.
Grocery Shopping.... We put an order in to Amazon Pantry for some non parishables, but I need to do a list maybe put in another order and get a run to the grocery store in as well.
