Archive for the ‘Happy Homemaker Monday’ Category


It may be late (it’s after 10 now), but better late than never, right?  I just don’t have time to blog until the kids are in bed.  I guess I should probably write and publish it on Sunday night, but there’s only so much thinking ahead I can handle at one time!  🙂

The Weather:::
Crazy!!  We had 87* one day last week, we’re in the 50’s now, and we’ll be in the 30’s with a chance of snow by the end of the week.  Spring, please come quickly!

Right now I am:
Watching the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars.  Missed that show…I wish it was on year-round!

That I need to finish up the post and start folding laundry.

Bible verse, Devotional:::

Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior – Isaiah 43:1-3
