Outside my window...It is an amazing day here in the
I am thinking... about how it has been so long since I have blogged. That life is full of unexpected changes and that there are many, many gifts that I am grateful for in my life.
I am thankful for...Hot apple cider in big mugs. Our wood burning stove with firewood chopped and stored. The last of my home grown tomatoes- farewell…till next summer. Lots of art supplies. My bible.
From the learning rooms... we are trying to work through colds and sniffles not so fun. We are accomplishing some work so I can’t complain.
From the kitchen... This is the time of year for homemade soups, turkey barley and lentil with kielbasa are on the menu this week for lunch.
I am wearing... the usual comfy clothes with socks to keep my feet warm
I am creating... not much these days. I am trying to sketch at least once a week and I am currently partially done with a sketch called Falls treasures with things I found on a walk one day.
I am going... to see the movie The Help tonight with a friend
I am reading...Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby, The Scarlet Pimpernel.
I am hoping...for a spiritually meaningful holiday season
Around the house...we have been upgrading, fixing, and puttering around doing all those little things that at some point add up. It feels good to cross things off the list as the winter season approaches.
One of my favorite things...my morning time with the Lord and my husband.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I hope to attend a theater production of Pride and Prejudice at a local playhouse and have a dinner with my brother and his family
Here is picture thought I am sharing... wonderful Fall scene
