Happy Homemaker Monday

How is it already Monday again? I’m not sure but I do know that it means that it’s "Happy Homemaker Monday," a project which is hosted by Diary of a Stay at Home Mom (one of my new-to-me favorite blogs to read!). Each week, she hosts "Happy Homemaker Monday" as a way to highlight what is going on in her world. This week I have decided to join in....So here is a little glimpse into my world on this Monday! 
The Weather:::
This morning it was COLD out...48 degrees! BRRR...but it is supposed to warm up to the low 70s today and then be in the high 70s/low 80s this week. I will take it! Feels good to have the a/c off and the windows open!

Homemaking Tips:::
One thing that is working for me is to make sure that every night before I go to bed, dishes are done and the tables (end tables, coffee table and kitchen tables) are all cleaned off. Makes for a less stressful morning.

Looking around the house:::
Jacob is watching cartoons. Benjamin is asleep on the floor. Dishes need to be put away. The mail is sitting here next to me to sort.

From the camera:::

On my prayer list:::
For my husband that he is able to get sleep this week. For my friend Sara, as she is going through chemotherapy for breast cancer that she find peace this week and healing from her treatments.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
