Happy Homemaker Monday

The weather in my neck of the woods:
Its 80 degrees. It rained last week so my garden got the needed watering.

One of my simple pleasures:
Opening the doors to the house when I get up to see the fresh new day.

I finished reading the 3rd book of The Daughter’s of Lancaster County Series last week and then started The Bride’s of Lancaster County Series. I read the 1st book “A Merry Heart” in 2 days and am now reading the 2nd book “Looking for a Miracle’. I love getting that much reading done in a week as it doesn’t happen often enough.

On my bedside table:
The same as last week tissue, lotion, candle, lamp, a glass bowl that holds chapstick and hair ties. An Upcycled candy sprinkles contained that now contains chocolate and a fabric placemat.

On my TV:
