Outside my window... A calm, cool morning. With blue skies and puffy grey clouds. Lots of leaves on the ground, with some green leaves still hanging on for life on the trees, school kids playing soccer for phys. ed across the street
I am thinking... My girl is coming home this weekend, my girl is coming home! Oh my, my girl is coming home. I have so much to do!
From the dayhome... today we'll be doing tp roll trees with thumbprint fall colored "leaves. And something "turkey-ish" for Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend.
I am thankful for... my church and pastor. He has been doing such a great series on Stewardship. And not just of finances, although that was one week's topic. But stewardship of you talents, time, and life. So encouraging and yet so convicting all at the same time.
From the kitchen... Apple Pie Cake, crockpot sausage and beans.
I am wearing... a green and white light knit sweater, jeans, socks
I am reading... Finishing up "A Time to Mend" and having to get to "The Shape of Mercy" as the blog tour is next week. I'll be giving one away so check back next week.
I am hoping... my hand stops feeling numb and painful before I need to do all the Thanksgiving cooking this weekend. It's such a pain. Literally and figuratively.
I am creating... a new room for my son along with his help, a Thanksgiving menu for this weekend.
I am hearing... the kids playing downstairs
Around the house... Oh my word. So much to do. 'Cause did I tell you, my girl is coming home this weekend? We need another coat of paint on my son's new room, which is her old room, we need to get him moved down there, then shift the beds around in the two rooms upstairs (not the master). I need to finish organizing the rumpus room downstairs and get the unused exercise equipment out of there to make more room. Then I need to start getting together what I'll be cooking and baking for Thanksgiving.
One of my favorite things... that first sip of coffee in the morning, especially when it's ready and waiting for me. Thanks, Sweetie!
A few plans for the rest of the week... uhmm, read the above around the house.
Here's a picture thought I'm sharing with you...
I just have to show you the lovely set of dishes hubby bought for me. I just love them. Somehow food just tastes better on lovely dishes.
