For Today... September 28, 2009
Outside my window... It's grey, cloudy, windy today. I'm hearing the garbage truck go down the street... I wonder how often they have to replace the brakes on their fleet of trucks--all that starting and stopping...
I am thinking... it's getting time to put the capris away and bring out the jeans and sweatshirts...fall is really here and it feels like it.
I am thankful for...In the middle of this month, Ben, Lisa and little Sophia are making a trip from Pittsburgh that we didn't expect!!! the middle of this month!! In three short weeks, they will be here for a visit!!! :) --which also means that they will be here to celebrate Sam's 2nd birthday with the rest of the family. That is also Sam's Aunt Kristen's birthday!! (Sam was born on Kristen's birthday and Sophia was born on Amanda's birthday:)
From the kitchen... for dinner tonight- meatloaf, baked potatoes, broccoli with cheese, cupcakes.
I am wearing... blue sweatshirt, blue sweats- very warm and comfy...
I am hoping...again- for dry weather so that we can paint our deck railings-too much wet weather last week.
I am hearing... Amanda singing as she gets ready to head out for her class.
I am praying... that our son Jonathan's financial aid is awarded soon. It would take a lot of pressure off of him. Also for Jonathan to stay healthy - hard classes and a job keep him very busy.
Around the house... start to get the house spruced up for Ben and Lisa's visit- cleaning, fall decorations upstairs and down.
One of my favorite things...hearing someone mowing in the distance- I don't know why-actually it inspires me to get busy, too! --- unlike our neighbor who revved up his mower at 8:15 Saturday morning--I repeat Saturday morning :/ Apparently he didn't get the (unwritten:) memo that says that, out of respect for your neighbors who want to sleep in because they stayed up too late the night before ;), no one mows until 9:00 am:) I forgave him though... bless his heart...maybe he wasn't going to be home later or something.
A few plans for the rest of the week...maybe a trip with Amanda to a local farm that sells pumpkins. It's not a trip really, -- it is literally 2 minutes away from our house-- such a fun place:) ... Pumpkins...reminds me of my very first post a year ago this month:)
I never imagined the joy of "meeting" the wonderful blogging friends that I have made this past year, or the many things that I have learned because of you! You have blessed and inspired my life...thank you:)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...* Speaking of pumpkins...
These are pictures from my first post last September about our pesky squirrels that give us so much entertainment:)
I hope you have a great week!:)
