I woke this morning at 6:00 and have been going non-stop. I am taking a break right now, so I can get some type of blog post up :) The picture above was my bread maker today...Happy little dough rose really well. It is now 6:15 in the evening and I have a few more things to do. I hope you all are having a nice day. It was rather cold today, in fact it was very cold, 36 degrees but it felt like 24 degrees, and it even snowed in places around here. I made my dinner rolls, pumpkin Spice bread, a chocolate cake, cookies, some other type of cookies that I will share the recipe for another day, the are a chocolate ball type cookie. I also made stuffing, boiled my eggs...and a few more things I can't remember at the moment...LOL... My sweet husband came home from work with a large Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha, just what I needed :) Have a wonderful evening. XO
I braved the cold and rain this morning and did my grocery shopping. I went to the closest store near my home. It is very close, so it was not a far drive at all. The children stayed home with my SIL, where it was cozy and warm. I (think) I got everything I need. I was sooooo BUSY today, from sun up to sun down. Tomorrow is even going to be more busy. Lots to do. I kept my Fall decorations up and just added white lights all over the house, it looks really nice. If you couldn't guess already, I am having Thanksgiving here:) I am hoping it will be the best Thanksgiving ever! I hope everyone is able to have a nice Thanksgiving, I know times are tough for so many. Have a wonderful evening, stay warm, and be happy for today, you just never know what tomorrow may bring :) I will be up bright and early tomorrow getting ready for Thursday XO
It is so cold outside!!! Tonight I made Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and salad:) Cleaned a bit, did some laundry and made my list for groceries. I have to venture out tomorrow and buy the rest of the things I need for Thanksgiving. I hope everyone is staying warm. My children have the whole week off, I am soooo happy about that. Especially being so cold, and it may even snow on Wednesday :) Have a great evening xo
Today, my husband had to go to a meeting, so I am going to use today as a big clean, cleaning day!
I am going to start in my dining room, and make it look real nice, since I am having Thanksgiving here, I want everything to be perfect. I strung white lights all over the house, and it looks so nice....I have fall decor and white lights. Did I mention I got a 15 pound turkey at Kroger for 10 dollars..it was originally $23.00...Yay me...LOL
I will then work on the living room, dusting and straitening it up.....
For dinner tonight, I took chicken out, so we will have roasted chicken. Last night I slow cooked a pork roast with potatoes and mushrooms, it made the house smell so good, with brownies for dessert.
I also plan on vacuuming the stairs, that is a job....I try and do the stairs once a week, I use my Kirby, I love my Kirby, but it is HEAVY.
It started raining here last night, and rained until the morning. It is all wet and cold outside, perfect day to stay inside and do some housework. I will light a candle that smells fallish too.
Update on the kittens that I had posted about, they have found their forever home, along with Mama, that I caught. Mama also had more babies roaming outside that we were able to place too...we still have 1 more kitty, and she is staying in the guest bedroom away from my son. My SIL stays with us, she is with the cat a lot, (The guest bedroom is her room) and my older son and daughter go in there, too. She is warm, safe, well fed and content. Plus all the cats came up clean , no kitty diseases, Yay!! So 8 little cats have been saved.
Okay, I am going to have another cup of coffee, Peppermint Mocha :) Have a wonderful morning! XOO
Good Morning! It is Wednesday, and it is a cold day here in Georgia:) I love it! Last night for dinner I made the Goulash again and then while I was making that I also made Cabbage Rolls for tonight's dinner. Also, while I was grocery shopping, I went to Kroger, they were having a great sale on Turkey's, so I picked up one of those. The Holidays are upon us, my favorite time of year.
My profile picture for Facebook is an icon that says, "Let Go and Let God" As of late I have been leaning on that little saying for awhile now. I have been desperately trying to keep a door open that God wants to close. It is hard when things in life aren't going the way you had planned. I have been praying and trying to find peace with what is going on and putting my trust in God. I have always said, my life is not perfect but it is perfect for me, and right now, there is a bump in the road that we are trying to get over. My little one said to me on Saturday, "My Mama always said, Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get"...so true. It took that little statement to realize that it is true. You never know what life may dish out to you, but if you have faith in God and love, you can get through anything :) *Side note: My son heard the "Forest Gump Catch phrase" on a game he was playing and recited it word for word...LOL..Bless his little heart :)
So, now, today I am going to take everything off my kitchen counters and give it all a good scrubbing! I have floors to sweep and laundry to do. Dinner is already prepared so that just needs to be popped in the oven. Sissy has dance tonight after school, and I am so happy she enjoys it. I truly believe kids need extracurricular activities with their peers...Little Kevin LOVES school, which is a good thing! ;) Tony is working hard, and has really come a long way :) My husband, my dear, sweet husband, the stress he has been enduring is sometimes heartbreaking. He works so hard to give everyone a beautiful life and he comes home bone tired some days. I try and make the home as calm and nice as possible so he has a place to relax, no worries for him here. Anyway, enough about that. I hope this post finds you all well and happy. I am dedicating this post to a dear friend, Chrissy. My ever faithful reader. She says I motivate her, but her kind words to me, help motivate me more than she will ever know. All your kind words make me smile. Even if I may not reply to all of them, which I try and do, I read everything that comes my way! You are my sweet friends that have been reading here as long as I have been writing. For those that are new to my blog, welcome to My Daily Life :) May you all have a glorious day, and remember to "Let Go and Let God"
My name is Julieann, and I am a SAHM. I am married to the sweetest and kindest man--and he is very handsome too. I have three wonderful children. I enjoy being a wife and mother and taking care of my family--there is nothing more satisfying to me then what I am already doing. God is so very Good!
God bless my little kitchen I love its every nook And bless me as I do my work Wash pots and pans and cook. And may the meals that I prepare Be seasoned from above With Thy great blessing and Thy grace But most of all Thy love. As we partake our earthly food The table before us spread We'll not forget to thank Thee, Lord Who gives us daily bread. So bless my little kitchen, Lord And those who enter in May they find naught but joy and peace And happiness therein.
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day, With little time to stop and pray, For life's been anything but calm, Since you called on me to be a mom. Running errands, matching socks, Building dreams with building blocks. Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes, And other stuff that children lose. Fitting lids on bottled bugs, Wiping tears and giving hugs. A stack of last week's mail to read, So where's the quiet time I need? Yet when I steal a minute Lord, Just at the sink or ironing board, To ask the blessings of your grace, I see them in my small one's face, That you have blessed me all the while, As I stop to kiss that precious smile.
