Outside My Window~ Sunny outside my window. It has been either warm and humid with rain, or just warm. My kitty spent several hours this afternoon fascinated by the falling leaves in the back yard. My window was open and she was enjoying the breeze and sounds of rustling leaves. She was acting like a kitten.
I believe the trees in my yard are about done with their big show of color. Most of the leaves are blown off now, except in a few areas. The oaks still have a lot of leaves.
A Few Plans for the Upcoming Week~ Next week I'll be back to my routine of keeping the home and being a teacher.
From The Learning Room~ No school this week in favor of a big city adventure. I can see a nice picture coming of something my student enjoyed about the city
I Am Wearing~ In my p.j.'s since 1:00 o'clock this afternoon. I am tired!
I Am Creating~ Got my thinking cap on. Going to get that photo album project completed. I need to start writing my annual Christmas letter.
I Am Praying~ Still praying very hard for #1 son. We still have not heard from CG recruiter. Continue to pray that my son's application will stand out and he will be selected!
Praying for wisdom. Praying for the desires of my heart.
Around The House~ Our family comes back to stay the night tomorrow. I am putting them in my bed and my manly man and I will be camping out in the basement family room. Tomorrow I'll need to wash sheets and vacuum.
From The Kitchen~ For Friday- beef tips with egg noodles, garlic green beans, green salad, apple crisp and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Saturday morning- Pancakes, eggs, fried potatoes, sausage. Sandwiches for lunch. We'll take the bachelors out to Old Country Buffet Sunday afternoon so I can get rested up!
I Am Enjoying~ I have enjoyed a couple books by this author recently. Some of her writings deal with spiritualism (such as psychics) but for the most part, a decent reading mystery. She has several books in a series about an elderly, woman, CIA agent, Mrs. Pollifax. TCM happens to be playing a movie about Mrs. Pollifax tonight.
One Of My Favorite Things~ Spending time with far away family. Last night we double dated. We went to a barbecue place off of Time Square, then thoroughly enjoyed the Broadway show, WICKED!
I Am Sharing~ Remember the magazine I found last year put out by Gooseberry Patch? I found another one for 2010. It has many good ideas for Christmas gifts, recipes and ideas.
Can you tell they have displayed these truffles in tea cups? What a great idea! Tea cups abound at the thrift stores.
This isn't a good picture. . . but this picture would make a great blog header!
~~Have a great weekend Friends!!~~
