I am thankful for… ~my Uncle Dan and Aunt Marilyn. I enjoy their company, and it’s nice to see them when they come up from Florida. We had a great time today baking at their house, and of course our cinnamon rolls came out fabulous!
I am wearing… ~a gray U of M tee shirt and jeans.
I am remembering… ~what a fantastic time I had last night at the little dinner ‘party’ I gave for my parents. Good food, family and lots of laughter. It doesn’t get any better.
I am going… ~to start planning the participation prizes for the annual cookie exchange that I host this week. Does anyone know a Pampered Chef rep?
I am currently reading…~The Questing Road by Lyn McConchie. This is apparently set in a world that has prior books written, but it looks good so I’m going to check it out. I also have Snakewoman of Little Egypt by Robert Hellenga. I haven’t started that yet.
I am hoping…~to do as well this week on my ‘to-do’ list as I did last week. I kicked some butt and got some major stuff done!
On my mind… ~how busy, busy, busy the next month is. It seems like I’ll be constantly running.
Noticing that… ~it’s hard for kids to fight with each other when the mamas know each other and don’t believe that their own kids do no wrong.
Pondering these words… “A pint’s a pound the world around.” Don’t ask me why, but it’s stuck in my head.
From the kitchen… ~Pulled pork and baked french fries tonight; French Dips, salad and chips last night; Spam fried rice tomorrow (don’t knock it, it’s dee-lish), tacos, cheeseburger bake and more mini caramel apple crisp cups on deck for this week.
Around the house… ~My brother has the posts in for my porch rails, and the rickety metal one is gone. He’ll be finishing them within the next week or so, and I am so excited about that! Buffett table cleaned off; all fall/Hallowe’en decorating completely done. Working on laundry today since this is the first time this weekend I’ve had time to do it.
One of my favorite things ~the smell of burning leaves in autumn. It’s right up there with the smell of cow manure and fresh cut grass in the spring time.
