Mondays Musings~


Its actually hot here today...85 degrees on my back patio! Go figure! Other areas in the US are having below freezing with wind chill too! Strange indeed...

Its been quite a fruitful day. Been steadily blessing my house throughout the day...went to prayer this morning which always sets my day in order. Its like a breath of fresh air when I leave...burdens left behind and praying Our Fathers' will upon the earth!!

Laundry is still being done, the dryer quietly spinning away..while the washer is chugging along!

Dinner tonight will be Tri-Tip steaks

Baked Potatoes

Salad, Rolls and Fresh cut up Veggies

I have some garlic roasting in the oven..Cut the tops off of it...drizzled some good olive oil over the top and a sprinkling of kosher salt and put it in the oven...smells wonderfully aromatic in here!

I was able to shampoo the family room carpet on Saturday...opened up all the doors and windows as the weather is once again very warm. It was one of those things that I had been procrastinating on..but so glad that its done now...the effort is so worth it!

We had a lovely weekend. I watched our grandson Friday night...and he stayed overnight and we had so much fun! Grandpa worked overnight and came home Saturday afternoon..and Nicholas was ready to play with him. The little ones have soooo much energy...its just amazing to me!

I ordered my mothers' valentines gift from Harry & David! I sent her a gift for her birthday last year and she enjoyed it so much...so I had a coupon for 10% off my order and decided that this would be a great gift for her....the pears are the best!!!! It will be delivered on February 14th and no extra cost to get it there in time either!!!

Its been a great Monday...the start of a new week...and looking forward to what is coming in the days ahead...with expectancy. Its a day to get things back into order from the weekends activities. Starting with a tidied home, laundered linens and clothes put away, bills paid, meals planned, something sweet baked for later, and in the evening..time with family going over the days events...encouraging one another...and then when its all quiet...I sit and again thank my Lord for the many blessings in my life as this day comes to a gentle close.

Hello my sweet and comforting friend. And, btw, I enjoy hearing about you going to prayer in the mornings. I don't know of any churches that do that, but maybe the good Catholics take the lead in that respect.

Enjoy your evening. My goodness, but you're cozy!

The house does take on a peaceful feel when all is in order, and your encouragement in doing that yourself is contagious. Dinner sounds yummy.
