Hello Monday

Hello Christmas decorations...

Excuse the flash!  I'm a novice with the camera.

Had to add this one.  These guys are the best part of any room!

Hello branches gathered at 11:00 pm...

Hello garland, made at 10:00 pm before climbing around the shrubbery hunting aforementioned branches...
Garland inspiration found here.

Hello to my little elf helper...

Hello potty training...

I must hold fast to the advice of those who remind me that "this too" shall pass.  Good thing he's so dang cute. 

Hello to my jumbled craft & laundry space awaiting serious attention this week...

Hello Proverb for this week...
Proverbs 15:5 A miserable heart means a miserable life; a cheerful heart fills the day with song.  Attitude is about choice, not circumstances.  My days are largely determined by how I choose to think and approach each day, each task, each relationship, each moment.

Hello to a few blog entries, a birthday gathering, play time with buddies (for both mom and son), morning runs with a neighborhood chum, Friday night dinner with friends, a little online Christmas shopping, the weekly "to do" list, a holiday project with my son, and generally hanging out with my favorite daily partner-in-crime.

What are you doing this week?

Linking up here.


  1. choosing a much better attitude than yesterday.
    thanks for the reminder.
    happy monday to you.

  2. Your decorations are so pretty--I love your garland. Try not to stress about potty training. It's a struggle with boys, but they do eventually "get it." I remember thinking we'd never get them out of diapers, but all three of mine made it!

    1. Thanks! It just doesn't seem to bother him in the least so he's not terribly motivated at this point. :)

  3. What a pretty tree! I wish I had a craft space of my own (even if it was messy)! We said a brief hello to winter but the 60 degree day we had to day melted it all away.

    1. It was warm here too. We played out in the yard a lot--no coats!
