~~It's Thursday!~~

(fall color in my yard!)

Outside my window...  Drizzly.  Fall colors grow bolder everyday.  More leaves on the ground everyday as well.  It's a cozy day.

I am thinking...
I am thinking.  Yep

I am thankful...
I am thankful for God giving me my family.  The ones related to me and the ones I gained through marriage.  I am also thankful for the friends God places in my life!

From the learning rooms... Learning to add and subtract three digit numbers
Drilling counting by two's and three's.

In the kitchen... An easy day today.  Baked potatoes and salad.  I am making that Pumpkin Spice Cake today.

I am wearing...
  Tan Capri's and my funky blue top, tennis shoes and white bobbed socks.

I am creating...
  A lighted Christmas basket, fall towels with hangers, bible covers. . . camper curtains.

I am reading/watching...
A new detective heroine, Miss Winter.  The book is called The War Against Miss Winter.  Not sure what to think of her yet. 

We found season 2 of Shaun the Sheep in Netflicks last night.  We LOVE that show!!

I am Praying...  I am praying for the desire of my heart,  praying for far away family, for wisdom, for gentleness.

Around the House...  Soft music  playing in the background.  A Spice Cake Candle is burning, scenting the house wonderfully!  ((Wal Mart's Better Homes and Garden line has some nice fall things out right now, table decorations, kitchen towels and scented candles.))

One of my favorite things... Caramel Macchiato

. . .and homemade, hot buttered popcorn!

A few plans for the rest of the week...  We're having lunch with Sharon and Anastasia tomorrow.  I'm taking Connect Four and Rummykub to enjoy along with that Pumpkin Spice Cake.  Saturday is errands with Bachelor David and Clam Chowder in the afternoon.  Not sure . . . but Sunday may include apple picking, Geo-caching and family pictures.
Mystery Books
Something to Share...  I was brought back to a great book and movie list yesterday.  This gal has made a list of what she calls "Cozy" books and movies.  Her version of "Cozy" isn't necessarily "Christian" but she has fairly decent lists.  I am linking up to her sight and recommend you browse it thoroughly.



  1. Girl, I was making a cup of coffee while your Xanga was loading. Then I went to hysterically laughing!! As I took my first sip and reading your blog, I was reading how your love Caramel Macchiato........guess what kind of creamer I just put in my coffee????? CARAMEL MACCHIATO!!!!!

  2. Caramel Macchiato............YUM! Love those pics of your yard. So pretty! I also love the different fabrics you've picked out. So colorful and festive! Thanks for sharing that website. Will have to peruse it later when I have more time.

  3. @betheelou - you betchya!! lol.....great minds think alike!

  4. Don't care for any coffee drinks  but popcorn is definitely a staple at our house.  No microwave popcorn for us.......Will loves butter, I just use salt!   Shaun the sheep sounds like something Matt would love.  Gonna see about that.  Also will check out the website......thanks for sharing.

  5. Hello, my friend! I have missed you. Just stopping in to say hello. Loving the fall in your photos!
