FOR TODAY September 22... 2014
Outside my kitchen window.. the sun is shining with a bit of rain now and then.. The wind is blowing the sheets on the line..
I am thinking .... that tomorrow is the first day of Fall and I need to get myself organized..
I am thankful... for all of the blessings of yesterday....
In the kitchen... I am thinking of painting my table, chairs and hutch a green color..
I am wearing... my typical black skirt and top with a homemade apron with roses on the bottom..
I am creating .... new pages for my kitchen calender for Sept, Oct, Nov and December..
I am going to.. the city tomorrow for a town day hopefully... We do this each Fall and Winter and call it our town day.. I love it as we do errands, visit thrift stores and have lunch somewhere.. Sometimes we have time to visit my Mom and her husband or see our youngest son and his family..
I am wondering... when we will get back to close the cottage completely...
I am reading a book on... Immigrant Brides which is based during the years of 17 and 1800's...
I am hoping .... to get my Fall decorating started soon..
I am looking forward to... our children all gathering to celebrate their Dad's birthday and what I should take for the meal..
I am learning... that I need to cultivate my friendships and keep them lasting as they are such a blessing in my life..
Around the house...I am bringing in my plants and starting some new ones, cleaning our cold room and putting away preserves and stocking the freezer for the coming season..
I am pondering.... on the pastor's lesson on friendships...
A favorite quote for today...
October gave a party..
The leaves by hundreds came,
The Ashes, Oaks and Maples,
The leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind, the band...
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky...
One of my favorite things..... is a windblown night with the window open and sweet smelling sheets from the line..
A few plans for the rest of the week... are gathering my hydrangeas and placing them in bowls and vases and creating a wreath for my fireplace and beginning a personal Ladies Bible Study..
A peek into my day.....
