Daybook: November 1st, 2010

Outside My Window... it is bright and sunny, but cool. And windy. I wore my "new to me" windbreaker today when I went out.

I am thinking... about how it is already halfway through fall. And how we had a busy but fun weekend.

I am thankful for... health insurance. My last post told of how much I've had to go to the doctor and the hospital and it has been a huge blessing to not have to stress about paying for all of those visits.

From the learning rooms... The preschoolers will be learning about scarecrows, squirrels, Thanksgiving and leaves. Jelly Bean is working on learning about the rise of Islam, marsupials, multiplication, how to write a letter, Missouri, and finishing up The Little Princess.

From the kitchen... I've prepared a few Make-Ahead meals. Not a whole months worth or even two weeks worth, but a few so that I don't have to scramble every night. Which is important now that we have swimming lessons twice a week.

I am going... to the garden tonight to pull the tomato cages. They are going to plow all the gardens under this week. Another gardening season comes to a close.

I am reading... I just finished Hamlet's Blackberry. It was an interesting look at technology over the years.

I am hoping... that my health will improve soon and that I will exercise six days a week this month.

I am hearing... nothing. My computer time is always done during nap/quiet time. Apparently, the dog is taking quiet time seriously too.

Around the house... I cleaned up all the Halloween decorations. I actually don't decorate for Halloween until the day before Halloween because I like to enjoy more fall-type decorations instead.

One of my favorite things... Apples, chocolate, and seeing an old friend. And I got to enjoy all of these things this weekend :)

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week ... I have an appointment with the allergist and Jelly Bean gets her cast off on Friday. Saturday is a busy day with a 5K in the morning, a baby shower in the evening, and a party that evening.

A Picture Thought I'm Sharing ...

Roses from my backyard. The rosebud was a gift about 4 years ago,and truly is the gift that keeps giving. And I love the color.

Love it! I HAVE to steal this idea! I feel like I am so busy doing other things that my personal blog keeps getting pushed to the curb! I am doing awesome things....just not blogging on our family site which is way important to me to document too. This way it would be easy to just note things!
