Spring is coming Monday

I know not yet, but hey we are a week closer than we were last week. And that is good!!  And I am motivated. I have some personal goals this week, like 50 miles on the treadmill, and yes that is very realistic when broken down into daily averages. But also I have some things I want to get into Mondaymotion .  Like Some Spring cleaning and organizing. Like setting some more goals. It is dreary and yucky looking outside and there is mud everywhere and more ice in the forecast, but I can smell that Spring is just around the corner :) And I dreamed I heard the sounds of Spring last night. You probably have to be  Tennessean to know what that means.

As always expect all links here to bless me and you!

But I am READY!

I have had some very interesting prayer times recently, praying for some specific things for some specific people. The Lord has given me some really good insights so be prepared to hear about them as I write here. Things are not always what they look like.

I also have some new recipes for you, I encourage you to follow my Menu Plan Monday posts, and if you have trouble coming up with your own, hopefully that will be of help or and if that doesn’t work for you Build a Menu is highly recommended by me!

And of course I am always working on 5-10 new books, we will see which I get to this week. MarchAmine

And there is a new Lilla Rose Flexi of the Month. If you have ever even thought about a work from home job that you can do at your own pace, on your own schedule, and make as little or as much as you want, you will LOVE Lilla Rose, Feel free to ask all the questions you like :)

You can read all about  why I sell Lilla Rose Flexi Clips here.

And … I am working on a blog makeover here. We will see how far I get.

I love Mondays!! Don’t you?

Monday Monday icy Monday

Oh my goodness it has been cold, and icy, and there is more on the way.

Monday I really want to dream about Spring for a minute, but when I open my eyes I see ice. Not snow but ice, and more on the way. So maybe I should count the blessings of winter?

I have had a few things going on here that I am not sure have been noticed with all the website changeover. The first being my Lilla Rose giveaway, I usually have hundreds of entries and all of a sudden here, not one, is the rafflecopter widget not working?

So, how do you spend your time when the weather is dreadful?

We like to cook, but thankfully my girls have kept the baking to a reasonable amount, it can easily get out of hand when you have cooks this good.

We have a few new winter weather favorites around here , so I encourage you to follow my Menu Plan Monday posts, and if you have trouble coming up with your own, hopefully that will be of help or and if that doesn’t work for you Build a Menu is highly recommended by me!

 

And I will  share about this featured book. Because we need to REALLY keep that home feeling when the weather gets ugly.

wintery Monday coming right up

We have what looks to be like the most wintery weather of the season coming up this week. Snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain, all together. And sub zero temps. Can anyone say “hibernate?” Well I can, and I plan to. And I really don’t mind. I actually have things to catch up on.

Monday
So what do you have planned for your week? The last couple weeks have had me eyeball deep in internet hosting, website migrations and so on. Had some problems that finally just got too big to fix and was not getting the service I wanted from my previous hosting company so I moved. But we don’t just operate one site so it was like moving a whole apartment building, think I am pretty much done now and things should move much more smoothly.

Sometimes, often times, God has to throw a rock in your pond to bring stuff to the surface He wants to fix. I have seen that on lots of fronts recently. Hopefully I have time to write about it this week.

As for blog plans this week… let me see. I have a friend who recently made a graphic to share on our Lilla Rose group and when someone thanked her she said, “no problem, picmonkey is my therapy.” I had to smile and admit the same. I often give myself a hard time for doing the fun things in the middle of my work that always seems behind. But her comment just made sense, and stopping to rest for a few minutes of creativity is a good thing. So I will add a couple of my therapy projects here more often :)

Again another Presidents Day here, no mail, no banking, on top of that an ice storm coming, I really do get to hibernate. And write. And I am looking forward to it.

Upcoming are some great reviews, a giveaway, some Lilla Rose news, and more so stay tuned, as long as we don’t lose power I should have a lot to share this week.

And I will  share about this featured book.
