A Well-Versed Woman Can Fight Any Battle

Happy Homemaker Monday


Good morning, dear friends!  I hope your day has been blessed so far!  My days are up and down.  It seems that the days I lean in toward the LORD are definitely better days.  

I ordered a new outdoor cushion for my balcony chair.  I found a matching pillow too.  I will try my best to remember to take pictures for next week!  I am hopeful they will be here by Wednesday! (see weather, below) 

♥♥ The Weather ♥♥

 Monday - 69and mostly sunny

Tuesday - 72 and partly sunny

Wednesday - 82 and sunny

Thursday -   55 and lots of rain

Friday - 64 and mostly sunny

Saturday - 62 and mostly cloudy

♥♥ As I look outside my window ♥♥

It's mostly cloudy and just hit 60 degrees.  The lilac tree has lost almost all of its flowers.  I always thought of lilacs as a June flower, but I guess not. Everything is bright green and beautiful.  

♥♥ Right now I am ♥♥

Working.  I've been working a lot of hours the past few weeks.  I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically!  I have a vacation the week of Memorial Day and I can't wait!  It's just a staycation, but I am fine with that. 

♥♥ Thinking and pondering ♥♥

My old car broke down again after putting 1,000 into it LAST WEEK.  Waiting for the shop to let me know if it's (hopefully) a loose wire or something else FREE.  If not, I'm just going to become a hermit and never leave my house again.  Have you SEEN the price of used cars lately?  Not happening.  (UPDATE: It was 50 bucks - and it was a bad wire!! God is good!)

♥♥On my bedside table♥♥

Books, journals, chapstick, laptop, Kindle, candles. 

♥♥ How am I feeling ♥♥

Very exhausted, as previously mentioned. But I'm grateful and feel blessed every day. 

♥♥ Listening to ♥♥

Catching up - rewatching the last few seasons of Criminal Minds since there will be a new season in June from what I hear!

I sincerely hope the car situation resolves without too much expense or inconvenience. It would be truly unfortunate for you to face such challenges. Moreover, I want to express how much I appreciated your blog; your writing style and candidness are truly engaging. Coping with a lack of energy compared can be quite challenging, can't it? Oh and I LOVE chips too, haha

How's the cat doing now?
