Joining Sandra and Friends today: (and adding a lovely new fall picture ^ that Sandra made^)
It’s Fall, ya’all! 🙂 It is 57 degrees outside, just a little nippy. 🙂
RIGHT NOW I AM:::
drinking coffee, smelling my Yankee Candle autumn candle, finishing up lesson plans and menu plans for the week. Still need to take a shower and get dressed … SLOW Monday morning here!!
about my husband – he started a new project with the contractor he is (temporarily) working for – and for him as a very-non-construction-type person, he really never knows what he is getting into (which the contractor knows but is using him in a more supervisory role for his crews)!! 🙂 Praying he will have a good day and thankful he has some temporary employment.
ON MY READING PILE:::
Back to reading through my Lilian Jackson Braun “The Cat Who …” books … and neglecting one book I need to read for a review. 🙂 In my Bible reading, I am almost through the book of Ezekiel (I’m reading through the Bible at my own pace – started in January 2009).
ON MY TV:::
currently, it is silent. 🙂
ON THE MENU:::
Not sure what days we’ll have what, but the plan is:
tater tot casserole
quick beef-rice casserole
and chicken taco casserole
ON MY TO-DO LIST:::
take stuff away to Goodwill (6 bags of clothes plus a few boxes) – YEH!!
I can’t remember if this is exactly right – but on pinterest, I saw that you can mix equal parts vinegar and dishwashing soap and put it into one of those handled-dish-scrubbers (you put the solution in the handle part) – and you can scrub your shower with that … supposedly the BEST cleaner ever??!!
LOOKING AROUND MY HOUSE:::
MiMi is still half asleep even though she came downstairs at 6:30 this morning! She just can’t get awake though and has been dozing off and on – now it is 10 a.m.! I think the weekend with her grandparents WORE HER OUT! 🙂
Drew and Annie-Belle are watching their school DVDs.
FROM THE CAMERA:::
We were at Silver Dollar City (an amusement type park in Branson, Missouri) this weekend – and MiMi was finally tall enough to ride her first “roller coaster” with her daddy (and sister in the car behind them):
ON MY PRAYER LIST:::
My husband’s job situation (he had a job interview a week from last Friday – but they already warned him the hiring process is SLOW …)
Daniel’s great uncle died yesterday – he was 94 years old – had just celebrated 71 (!!!!) years of marriage. His wife is still living (obviously) – but has severe alzheimers … praying for the family.
Some more pleasant thoughts from the gloom-and-doom and judgment of the book of Ezekiel:
“As I live!” declares the Lord God, “I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked would trun from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways!” Ezekiel 33:11
