Happy Homemaker Monday 4.24.2017
(on a Tuesday)

Good Morning, I hope you all had a great weekend, We had a busy week and weekend so that my days seemed to blur into each other. I spent Monday morning trying to get as much done as possible before I had to have an extraction at the dentist-I knew I would be in pain, I rested the whole day afterwards. which means I missed HHM but am here to play catch up today.

(children staying at the home could obviously not be in photo but I tell you they are adorable)

some of these kids received scholarships from our local college and just found out during this event that the Convocations were in about an hour!!!-including my daughter so with no time to drive back to our side of town to change then back her and another student went straight from here. She was a bit self conscious to not be dressed up but we couldn't be any prouder.

Here our a few photos on the campus...

Happy Homemaker Monday 4.17.2017

Good morning. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We had family over. We had a great time laughing, talking, eating, laughing and eating, talking and eating lol  I see a theme. I was so busy eating spending time with family, I didn't take any photos but my daughter got one of the colored eggs. I get so mad at myself when I forget to pick up the camera because usually I am so good at it. so now I don't have any of my kids dressed up, we came home from church and got right to work : (  but I have the memories in my heart. Oh Do you ever sing a song/hymn from church all week. Well I was SO happy they sang Down To The River To Pray Oh I LOVE it especially by Alison Krauss.

p.s.. hubby later smiled and said I heard you singing hee hee because I usually don't sing while walking up to receive communion but I couldn't help myself. besides God doesn't care that I cant carry a tune I imagine to his ears we all sound like angels when we are singing to him at least I hope we do.

On to HHM! linking up with Sandra at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom http://familycorner.blogspot.com/2017/04/happy-homemaker-monday-04172017.html

The weather... 64 degrees and lovely

On my reading pile...
Bible: Esther and as always Proverbs and Psalms of the day.
Book: Excited to start this not only because I have had it on my books to buy list for a long time but because my daughter knew this, bought it for me and is also reading it...that touched me and I will treasure it forever.

Make calls- BLAH...I don't know about you but I am not a phone person. I can talk to customers on the phone in a work situation, I can talk to my family and a handful of friends for a long time but other than that I do not like to be on the phone.

From the camera...

What I am wearing today... Jeans and a mauve "girly blouse"
You know one of those tops that makes you feel feminine- that's what I call a pretty soft colored top that flows in the breeze. Sometimes I wish I could dress like Elizabeth Bennet but then I would have to have that shape and well I'll be honest;
Momma Like Food!  nuff said! lol

One of my simple pleasures... Losing count of how many times I've watched a movie like Pride & Prejudice

Bible verse or devotional...
"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for Adversity"

Good Morning! April already? I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am sorry I am so behind in blog comments and visiting you all. I did have a great weekend with my family nothing exciting, On Friday we unplugged and all sat around the kitchen table listening to music while drawing, reading, creating, etc. I love those days! When we are all just together hanging out, or out exploring the town. Bellas Auntie gave her money for her prom Dress so we did spend a few days shopping... and it left my head spinning. Thankful she finally found one.
