Let's see what else is going on in my little area of the world (as well as other's if you want to follow along with Sandra's "Happy Homemaker Monday" theme).
On the weather front:::
It is supposed to be up and down temperatures this week. Today in the 60s, warming up to almost 80 by Wednesday, then back to low 60s/high 50s by this weekend. It is that time of year, where you need coat in the morning and capris and flipflops by the afternoon.
On my TV:::
Thinking and pondering::::
About what I need to get done today and the rest of this week to prep for Jacob's birthday party on Sunday. Thinking about how time is flying by and my kids are growing up.

Looking Forward to:::
Lesson learned the past few days:::
That not everyone values the same things that I do in my life. That not everyone raises their children in the same way that I think is the right way. That I am blessed.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:::
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT MONDAY-- I am off to clean!!
