My Daybook

October 12, 2010

Outside my window...sunny and cool.  We are in the midst of wonderful Fall 60 degree weather. :)  The sweatshirt and blankets are out. 

I am thinking....about saving money.  As usual!  Sometimes I wish I didn't HAVE to but the reality is I do.  

I am thankful for....the love of my family.  No matter what.

From the learning rooms....The days continue to be SO wonderful.   Sophie continues to love learning at home. (and I do too!)   The smiles are abundant!! 

From the kitchen.... I crave warm, comfort food this time of the year. I am on the search for more new recipes. And we have really been enjoying cooking Apple Crisp very often with all the apples we picked while my brother was here. Yum!!

I am wearing.... Fuzzy pink pj pants and a sweatshirt. It's only 45 degrees right now. Brrr.

I am creating.... New arrangements for my mantle.   Pictures to follow.

I am going... to a work dinner with hubby tonight. And I have NO idea what am I going to wear?  I don't have very many "going out to dinner with hubby's work" outfits. The Stress!

I am reading... I have to confess....I am not reading anything but magazines and blogs right now.

I am hoping...that I can get my son to realize the importance of studying for a test.  I am getting very tired of hearing me repeat myself.

I am hearing....enjoying Silence (for a few more minutes at least).

Around the house....Dave started painting the exterior of the house.  The back side was finished yesterday (except for the trim that is).  Then it rained a little last night, which was not forecasted.   Sure hoping it is still okay. 

One of my favorite things....the smells of Fall.  Cinnamon or pumpkin candles are going in our house daily. 

A few plans for the rest of the week....3 Football games and gymnastics.  Other than that I think we will try to take it easy.  Except for maybe raking of the leaves and acorns that are creeping up on us very quick. Forgot about that :)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
