Outside my window... it is surprisingly warm. If I walk outside and close my eyes, I almost think that it is spring again. Then I open my eyes, and I'm swiftly disillusioned. It's definitely fall out here.
I am thinking... wait, no I'm not. I'm functioning on auto-pilot.
I am thankful for... the chance to have all of my kids home for the weekend. Even though they drive me crazy sometimes, I love them all.
From the learning rooms... we're getting ready for a week with "How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World". Pie will definitely be made. And eaten.
From the kitchen... Maple Orange Granola, and vegan Triple-Ginger Cookies. Oh my!
I am wearing... my favourite thrifted Japanese double gauze shirt. I never understood the appeal of double gauze fabric til I found this shirt. Now I need to buy some more and make myself some more clothes from it.
I am creating... more clothes from Sewing Clothes Kids Love. My goal is to make one item a week.
I am going to... continue on with my running program. I really want to conquer week 4 already... this will be my 5th week doing it.
I am reading... ExtraVeganZa (where I found the recipes for the afore-mentioned granola and cookies. I think I'm going to have to buy this one!)
I am hoping... for miracles.
I am hearing... rifles firing, "need a medic!", and "dynamite planted", as my husband plays Enemy Territory. An ironic choice of game for a nice Mennonite boy...
Around the house... I'm still in the midst of sorting and rearranging. There are piles of things everywhere. I just want to grab my knitting and run away to a peaceful tidy place.
One of my favorite things... is to snuggle up on the couch with a blanket and a book, listening to the rain outside, knowing I don't have to go anywhere.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
- choir on Monday, drama on Wednesday; as always
- a trip to the apple orchard to pick apples for pie
Here is picture I am sharing...
a bouquet of fall flowers - I love the pinks and reds.
