Happy Homemaker Monday! – June 23rd, 2014



Happy Homemaker Monday — uh, Sunday!  Head on over to Diary of a SAHM every Monday to read more!

As I look outside my window:::  I see the new driveway!  I should be able to drive on it in a few days 🙂


Right now I am::: Sitting in my favorite chair, with the air conditioner going and the fan blowing on me!  (I can’t stand to be hot when I’m inside!)


Thinking and pondering:::  Today’s Jennah’s 18th bday – so thinking about tonight and still planning for her grad party next week.   Pondering a LOT about finances and how to increase my cash flow ASAP.


On my bedside table::: Incense, green tea with mango on ice, Joyce Meyer cd’s, Kindle.


On my tv this week (I watch all my shows online! Here are the ones I am looking forward to most this week)

Lesson learned the past week::: Always fight for what you believe in!  Don’t be complacent!
Looking around the house:::  Need to pick up and put stuff away, more laundry, sweep, clean off kitchen table :/

 Prayer List::: My kids.  A friend from highschool and his family.  Our country.  Friends. My parents.

Bible verse, Devotional:::  Psalm 33:1-3   Let all the joys of the godly well up in praise to the Lord, for it is right to praise him. Play joyous melodies of praise upon the lyre and on the harp. Compose new songs of praise to him, accompanied skillfully on the harp; sing joyfully.


Have a blessed week,
