Oustide my window: It's an absolutely beautiful morning. A little cool, sunny with bright blue skies, barely a breeze to disturb the leaves which are just starting to turn yellow. So the trees are a lovely mix of yellows and greens. It's supposed to get up to 26*C today, that 82*F. Indian Summer is definitely kicking in. Definitely no socks today! :v)
I am thinking: My mind is running a hundred miles a minute with my to do list for the week. I definitely have to make sure to get the kids outside today and that I really have to tackle my arts and crafts room. It looks like it exploded. I'm thinking of everything I need to get in the paper that I want to sell.
From the dayhome: Continueing on with the letter "A". More printing practice, color apple pic with a little hole for the "worm" which would be the child's finger, egg carton ants. Lots of outside time to enjoy this beautiful weather.
I am thankful for: my hubby who worked so hard stripping wallpaper and remudding the back entrance. A messy job. Thank you Sweetie! The money to be able to put Tia into violin lessons. She has been consistenly asking for years. I'm so thankful to finally do it. She starts tonight!
From the kitchen: In no particular order: Shepards Pie, bbq chicken drums with buttery rice, slow cook ribs, spaghetti, chicken pot pie
I am wearing: a green t-shirt, off white capris and green speedo sandals.
I am reading: Finishing up on "The Canopy" this week.
I am hoping: to get my act together with some kind of walking routine this fall. After a very lazy dazy summer, I need to get doing something.
I am creating: my reading list for Katrina's Fall into Reading 2008 challenge.
I am hearing: Curious George in the background, one of the kids whistling, the phone ringing
Around the house: the new curtains are up in the storage room. Yay! They were a mess and really needed replacing. Check that off the to do list. Ironing awaits me. A job I put off until I just can't anymore! Today is a good day to tackle that. The fall decorations are starting to come out. The pumpkin spice candle is sending a lovely scent through the house.
One of my favorite things: is getting those fall decorations out. I love the colors of fall; all the oranges, browns, yellows, plums.
A few plans for the rest of the week: get to organizing the craft room, take Tia to violin lessons, go pick paint with Jay for his room, put out Mr. Scarescrow on the front step.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you:
This beautiful harvest moon lit up our backyard last night. I love fall.
