Happy Homemaker Monday
Rainy! The high today is about 60 but it's pouring and supposed to continue all day. I think it's supposed to be this way off and on all week, just like last week.
On my reading pile:::
Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella. I think I'll finish it today or tomorrow and then I'll start another one. Probably Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. I'm flying through books right now.
Movies or Shows I watched this weekend:::
I didn't really watch any TV this weekend out side of Wrestlemania. I'm not a big wrestling fan, but my son and husband are, so I do it for them.
On my TV:::
I'm not sure. Hopefully I'll finally get to Grace and Frankie this week. I also need to watch last week's Grey's Anatomy.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing yet, but I did get a large stash of yarn from the garage yesterday and plan to start something, probably a granny square blanket, so I can easily come and go from the project as I need to.
Looking around the house:::
I have a huge pile of laundry that needs washing. I've already done a load today, but didn't get any done this weekend and had a sick kiddo this weekend so all the living room blankets and the kids sheets are getting a wash. The dishes from yesterday are in the kitchen sink. Mostly just a couple of cups and plates, but those need tending to. As for the picking up and what not, the house is mostly clean. I've just got a little work to do. Rylie is currently in her bed and Scottie is in Sydney's while they watch My Little Pony and laze around. Shawn's working in the office downstairs.
From the camera:::
Ok, so for the amazingness of this picture to really come through, you need backstory. I'm a pretty decent cook, at least my husband thinks so. My kids think I should cook less veggies, but usually they like my cooking as well. While cooking comes easy to me, baking does not. I've never been able to make a cake from scratch that doesn't taste like flour. One year, many years ago, before I had kids probably, I decided to make biscuits to go with Thanksgiving dinner. Well, something went wrong and they were flat. I decided they couldn't possibly be that bad, put them in a gallon size ziplock baggie and took them to my family's Thanksgiving dinner. When Mom and Grandma were getting all the food out, Grandma grabbed the bag of my biscuits and asked "Who made the sugar cookies?" I, probably red faced from embarrassment, explained that they weren't sugar cookies, but biscuits. My Grandma grabbed the bag by the corner like they were contaminated by something horrible, and dropped them in the trash. I'd never attempted biscuits again after this traumatic event. Last week, while Shawn and I were working on the meal plan, he decided he wanted these rosemary biscuits with his chicken pot pie soup. Of course, I was terrified they'd be awful and I'd be justified in never baking them. Guess what! They turned out amazing and I'm no longer afraid of baking biscuits.
I've got on a pair of jeggings and a navy blue t-shirt. When I go out today, I'll need to wear my rain boots.
One of my simple pleasures:::
Lately, it truly has just been reading. I've been devouring book after book. I've needed this for so long.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
