Every Sunday I sit down and make up a plan of attack for the upcoming week. A list of goals in all areas of my life that I would like to accomplish to help keep me staying productive. Then on Mondays I share that list here with you in a great weekly link up called Starting Successful on Mondays. Why that name? Because I have longed believed that if you start your week with a clear set of goals in mind you will have a productive successful week. When you have focus it’s easier to remember what you want to get done and why. I started the link up to help encourage others in their weekly goals and for a way for everyone to encourage each other. Feel free to use the goal ‘categories’ I have set for myself or make your own then link back up here every Monday through Tuesday.

Scripture of the Week:
For nothing will be impossible for God Luke 1:37
Focus of the Week:
Home and Hearth
I’ve been sick the past week that my home is just in shambles. This week I am focusing on getting things back under control and being the housewife I love to be. This means cleaning, cooking and taking care of my family in all the little ways that make me happy. From cutting Mike’s hair to painting Hayley’s toe nails.
Listening to my husband make some weird Family Guy impersonation, but he’s impersonating Cleveland. Weirdness in my home tonight I tell you, just weirdness. I’ve also been prepping Hayley for back to school tomorrow, the little monkey has enjoyed her 9 days off and isn’t to thrilled with going back to school.
Late last week the weather for this week looked to be the normal warm weather we have here in the south around this time of year. Then mother nature decided that it needed to rain this week and well my lovely temps of 70-74 are now 55-65. Not really cold but alas the dip in temperature also brings clouds and more rain. I really could use some sun about now, warm gorgeous bright sun. *sigh*
