Simple Woman 11-1-10

For Today...  November 1, 2010

Outside my window...  gray skies, wet ground, and soggy leaves blowing around.

I am thinking...  now that soccer is done, I don't care what the weather does.
The days are getting shorter, the dark comes early, and I love cozy evenings with the candles lit,
reading together.

I am thankful for...  my family :D

I am praying for...  my brother.

I am wearing...  jeans, warm socks, stripey sweater - leafy green, soft orange, blue, gold... fall colors.

I am creating...  finally got started on a Christmas gift.  No pictures, though!

I am going...  to cut back my online time and work on Christmas secrets.  I got a really good idea for the boys... can't share it yet, though.

I am hoping...  for more work for Kerry, to get together with some friends, to have fun with the boys.

I am hearing...  the washer and the dryer.

From the learning rooms...  the Monday pile will have to wait a little, as Tate's appointment is first thing today.  But I feel so much more relaxed about school - well, about everything - now that soccer is done.  Which doesn't completely make sense, since their practices didn't conflict with our school hours, but somehow it all connects to me... go figure.

From the kitchen...  once again, it's Monday and I'll be out, so Kerry is in charge of dinner.

Around the house...  since we finally finished the old dresser I've been moving furniture around to accommodate it, and now Kerry is repainting a couple other things for me... maybe pics later.

On my mind...  sibling rivalry and our sin nature.

Noticing that...  time flies.

One of my favorite things...  the week after soccer season ends.  :D

A few plans for the rest of the week...  Tate's annual well-check first thing this morning, school work - of course, friends (we hope) are coming over this afternoon, rehearsal tonight,
and no soccer.

Here is a picture I am sharing...  
Here is one of our contributions to our church's Reformation Day potluck.

They were a big hit.
And so were the "Roasted Papal Bull" meatballs.

No figuring necessary. "Having" to run so many days of the week to soccer practice would make me nutty (or more likely 'peevish') ~ I was so glad when we said good-bye to our parks & rec programs. They are not a bad thing, just part of the overwhelming flood of life in this land of abundance...

EnJOY your week!

Love the wormy cupcakes - we had wormy water at a slime time carnival at my daughter's church. Your boys would have loved all the "slimy" activities!

Q said...

LOVE the dessert idea, brilliant!

Oh, sibling rivalry! We have huge issues with that in the Lefler house. Currently, the boys are being very good with each other- but I know it is only a matter of time before jealousy/selfishness/perceived injustice will rear its ugly head again. Most of our fights revolve around toys. Ugh.

The cupcakes are awesome- my boys would love those!

We have Reformation Night too. Love the Diet of Worms. Heheheh

Lol! Love the Diet of Worms! I thought you would be pleased to know I have been lighting a candle lately too :O). Sibling rivalry? What's that ;o)? Enjoy your first week of no soccer!

I almost just linked my daybook to your picture yesterday! That was GREAT! And it's a bummer there's not a way for you to share your craft ideas. I love your ideas! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
