A cheerful October to you! It is quiet in the Smith house this morning chores have already begun and coffee and Bible reading savored. I had a pretty laid back weekend, finishing fall decorating and visited with my parents.
Outside my window: Birds are chirping and the sun is shining through the clouds. We are expecting more rain today. The knock out roses are still blooming and I have a bud on the Doris day rose-bush.
I am thinking: This morning I am thinking about the little bit of office work I need to do today. I am also thinking about something silly, that I wish the United States Thanksgiving was celebrated around the time of the Canadian Thanksgiving for the mere reason of decorating! I know very trivial, but I was thinking about how my Autumn décor is up longer than my Christmas décor and I thought they deserved equal time.
I am thankful for: My sweet husband who buys chocolate, hides it and brings me a piece in the evening sometimes. It’s a shared treat for him and I no kids allowed! It’s the simple things really that can make a marriage sweet!
One of my favorite things: Yummy Scents in the home this weekend I picked up some wax melts.
I am wearing: Oh dear, I’m still in pajamas but it’s relatively early 8:30. I will freshen up soon though.
I am creating: Today I will try to finish my Autumn tea towel. This weekend I made more zucchini bread and it disappeared again. I even made it into little jack o lanterns. They turned out pretty cute and I brought some to my parents.
I am watching: A channel on YouTube called 1000’s of Roots. They are a large family that are homesteading and homeschooling. Far different to my suburban life. 1000sofroots.wordpress.com
I am reading: Graced and Gifted by Kimberly Hahn for the second time.
I am hoping: That all goes well this week while trying a different homeschooling approach with our youngest.
In the garden: Two little bean plants are sprouting.
In the kitchen: Last night I made Taco casserole from Come Home For Comfort. It turned out very nice. I made corn for a side and queso and chips. Mr. Smith and I mixed in the corn and queso with the casserole and it was even more yummy!
Around the house today: Clean Toilets, Vacuum downstairs and daily chores.
I pray your day is simple and filled with the love of Christ for your home and family.
