As for today, well.... it is Monday and honestly I am kind of dragging. I didn't want to get up out of my warm bed this morning. But I had to get Rebecca and Jacob to school, so I did get up and now am trying to convince myself to get some things done. For now, I will be joining in with the lovely Sandra over at "Diary of a Stay at Home Mom" in her Happy Homemaker Monday meme. So let's get started:
Today it was cloudy, and cold. It is supposed to warm up a little today with wind chills in the teens versus below zero. I think we are supposed to get snow/ice tonight and then wind tomorrow. I am hoping we don't. The rest of the week, I believe it is supposed to be warmer (in the low 30s) but raining.
ON MY READING PILE:::
I am currently reading The Magnolia Story. I also have several books that I need to read for review, so watch for some book reviews later this month (on Thursdays). :-)
ON MY TV:::
On Friday nights, we typically do pizza and a movie for the kids. This year I would like to try to remember what movies we have watched, so I will be recapping here. This past Friday we watched Beauty and the Beast. A classic Disney movie that I love.
This weekend we started watching the NFL playoffs-- GO PACKERS!!! Thankfully for our household, our rooting interests (Seahawks (Jacob's team) and the Packers (my team)) both won so it was all good. Tonight I am sure we will be watching the College football Championship game. Also glad that a couple of the shows I watch, like "Bringing Up Bates" and "Counting On" are both back with new episodes.

WHAT I'M CREATING:::
Nothing at the moment. I did color some in my adult coloring book that Bill got me for Christmas if that counts. I did try a new recipe Saturday night for Tex-mex tilapia and last night for Pork chop and scalloped potato bake as well!
LOOKING AROUND THE HOUSE:::
The house is looking too bad. There are a few things on the coffee table. There are a couple of throw blankets out where we were cuddled under them last night. There are dishes that need to be done in the kitchen, as there are breakfast dishes and I had the dishes that I used to get the lasagna soup started.
FROM THE CAMERA:::
Right now, I have on jeans, my Packers sweatshirt, and white socks. I will probably change later after I exercise as I don't like to wear sweatshirts or tennis shoes when I go to tutor.
Watching sports with my husband and kids. They love sports as much as we do, so it gives me great pleasure sharing that with them.
DEVOTIONAL OR QUOTE:::
So there you have it. A little peek into my life on this Monday morning. Hope everyone has had a great day and let's see what this week will bring!
