Homemaker Monday {3.3.2014}

Happy Monday!  Again!  Wow!  One more month done in 2014.  We are well on our way into the year.  Currently, though, it is looking like spring is going to be napping a little while longer.  We just received another generous dusting of the fluffy white stuff this weekend.  On the plus side.  It's March!  It is getting closer to warmer weather and flowers and singing birds and beautiful colors.  Lent starts this week.  I am looking forward to this time of prayer and reflection.  

The Weather:

The weather this week is looking like its going to be another chilly and snowy one.

Highlight of the past weekend:

Getting some things done on DIY projects.  My husband sanded our kitchen table so I could restrain it.  It is going to look so nice.  Now the task of finding some new chairs to go with it that won't cost and arm & a leg.  I also got a dresser primed and ready to paint.  I just need to pick out a color scheme for it.  Any ideas welcome!  Like to see what we were doing??  Follow me on instagram @AddyLouCreates.


Sunday's Gospel is going to be my mantra for the week.  It's funny how things like this come up right when you need the comfort too. 

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:34

I wish you all a wonderful week.  I've got some special posts and plans coming up over the next few weeks.  Get excited.  I am! :)
