GOOD MORNING sweet friends. It was a busy week that seems to have just swept by when I wasn’t looking! I’m jumping in with both feet this morning because of an early morning appointment.
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING We’re supposed to have a relatively mild and dry week with cooler crisp nights. 🙂 We have an appointment this morning so I’m wearing Levis and a burgundy lightweight sweater with my new gray POPS.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE Black cherry yogurt, string cheese and hot water
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE, WEEKLY TO DO LIST, HOUSE & CRAFT PROJECTS, APPOINTMENTS
- LAUNDRY, LIVING AREAS & KITCHEN… Standard tidying up to do
- YARD… Need to cut back the clematus and start working on the flower box that is falling apart
- APPOINTMENTS & TO DO… I have my annual physical and follow-up for the vitamins and minerals post surgery, getting my hair done, hubby has a couple of appointments also, visiting with stepdad at rehab…
- BLOG… I’ve been working on Blogtober, a few recipes and BLOGMAS posts
- CRAFTS/PROJECTS… Made some more pumpkins with the munchkins yesterday. I’m also working on a Snowman family made from old bowling pins. They are still naked, but at least started 😀
ON MY MIND / THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY Doing Blogtober has helped me get away from doing JUST recipes and I’m really enjoying it. I think maybe I need prompts for every month of the year to keep me motivated. Last week’s posts from BLOGTOBER include:
- Throwback Thursday
- Pumpkin Decorating Ideas
- If I won the Lottery – I’m running behind, but will catch up this week.
- Current Craft Project
- Fall Clothing
- Meal Planning
WHAT IS ON THE DVR, I LIKE OR ON THE LIST TO WATCH/SOMETHING INTERESTING I WATCHED
- We started a new mini series on Amazon called The Lost Room with Peter Krause, Juliana Marguiles and Elle Fanning that seems pretty interesting. We’re hoping to finish it this week.
- We watched a really scary movie called Case 39 with Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper.
I’M READING nothing right now 🙁
FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE CAMERA We had our pumpkin making family day this week! I think the girls had fun making their own little families and using their imaginations to decorate them. I made a couple new ones too for my ever growing family, including a set of twins.
