I am thinking… ~I really need to get to work on the apple pie filling I was supposed to make this weekend!
I am thankful for… ~old friends. My dear friend Laura and her husband came by this weekend for a visit. I haven’t seen her in 15 years. We visited for an hour and half, and I enjoyed every minute. I also sent her home with lots of jam!
I am wearing… ~an old black turtleneck top, jeans and my Mary Janes.
I am remembering… ~gathering chestnuts as a girl and making necklaces from them. Boy I thought those were some masterpieces!
I am going… ~to order some tools from Stampin’ Up soon so I can start working on some stamping projects.
I am currently reading…~nothing. I’ve been busy enjoying the weather outside and baking. When I go to bed, I’m asleep in minutes because I’m tired.
I am hoping…~to finish decorating for fall/Hallowe’en this week.
On my mind… ~holiday baking. I am so in the mood to make Chex mix!
Noticing that… ~my Little Man is having some issues with other kids treating him not-so-nicely. I’ve had one issue resolved this week by contacting the parents of the other child…I hope something positive comes out of it.
Pondering these words… “I love you, Mom & Dad!” My parents are in Tennessee visiting my sister; they’ve only been gone for a week, but I miss them bunches.
From the kitchen… ~home made pizza tonight; spaghetti with garlic bread last night; apple spice pancakes and ham, breaded porkchops with cream of chicken noodles and a welcome home dinner of French Dips for my parents are on deck. Various and sundry baking projects too if I have time, including cinnamon rolls with my Uncle Dan next weekend.
Around the house… ~front porch and back deck cleaned up and ready for winter, except for the chair cushions. I will probably leave those out another week. Lumber bought and ready to go for new porch rails, I can’t wait! A trip to the pumpkin patch needs to happen next weekend, I’m looking at trying out a place that’s new to us over by Roger’s City.
One of my favorite things ~cuddling up on the couch with my Momma kitty. She’s such a lover. At 13, she’s getting up there in years. We’ve been friends a long time, she and I. I treasure her.
