Outside my window … pouring rain. I knew this unseasonably-warm, sunny weather would change. It reminds me that I need to enjoy each moment because life, like the weather, can change so quickly.
I am thinking … that I am finally tired of eating Halloween candy. I am in the mood for baking today.
I am thankful for … modern medicine and that my croupy baby slept a little better last night thanks to some oral steroids.
I am reading … At Some Disputed Barricade by Anne Perry (one of my absolute favorite authors and a book I have had for almost a year now waiting to be read).
I am hoping … that Russell on Survivor actually wins the whole thing. I was anti-Russell in the beginning, but I have to admire that guy now - one of the best players in Survivor history.
On my mind … that Advent is fast-approaching. Shawn and I agree that we want a peaceful, joyful Advent season. No frenetic shopping, running around, or other general chaos.
We’re learning … subtraction patterns (Jamie), how to write our name (Clare), counting past 25 (Simon), and pulling up and cruising (Violet).
Noticing that … my house is getting neater and neater every day!
Pondering these words … "If God can work through me, He can work through anyone." --St. Francis of Assisi
From the kitchen … as I said, I am in the mood for baking. I am thinking banana bread and pumpkin muffins today.
Around the house … we're clearing out space for furniture. My dad is bringing us my old childhood bedroom furniture next weekend. It will eventually be in the girls' room, but we need some space for it!
One of my favorite things … my Keurig.
A picture I am sharing …
Jamie in action in the classroom. He is so handsome in his uniform!
