For today~September 21, 2010

Outside my window~It is still cool and almost crisp! Fall for us, is just around the corner. The grass is wet with dew and the birds are having a heyday!

On my mind~ There was no work for hubby to do today. Praying the Lord will provide. My oldest is going to spend the day with his dad and another man, building a shed at the hunting property that we have a free lease to. Hopefully, that will distract hubby from being worried about not working.

I am going~ to go get some paper towels and tp today. Maybe some milk too, if I have enough for it. Other than that, I hope it will be a quiet day at home!

From the kitchen~ If the lettuce is still good, I'm going to make homemade tacos tonight! That's one of our favorite meals. It's hard to make a meal that 6 people all love, but tacos will do it!

I am reading~ Intimate Issues. Thank God for people who are willing to talk about what so many won't! It's a real help!

I am wearing~ pj's still. The cooler it gets outside in the morning, the harder it is for me to crawl out of jammies! After I finish my coffee, I'll go find a skirt and shirt and officially start the day!

I am thankful for~ a God who cares and answers prayers! Part of the blessing of saying a prayer, is knowing that we serve a God who has the power to answer them!

I am creating~ a new workspace for myself and a new study place for my oldest son. He is starting a new curriculum that is very involved, so we have to get ourselves and our space ready!

From the learning rooms~ They are a complete mess right now. Like I said, we have been moving desks and adding storage, and organizing, all while trying to keep doing school work with the younger kids! AAAHHH! This too shall pass... :-)

I am hearing~ my little one's playing peacefully upstairs. They get along so much better when the oldest is gone. I don't know how long this will last, but I'm treasuring the moment!

Around the house~ so quiet...very unusual! Soon, the dishwasher will be going, the washer and dryer will be running, the cartoons will be playing and Mr. Pure at Heart and I, will be learning!

A few plans for the rest of the week~ *Try and finish the school areas and the dinning room itself. *Catch up on laundry. *Sell something on eBay to help with income for the week. *Put out the rest of the fall decor. *Type up testimony for bible study group.

From my picture journal~

My new "mums the word" flower bed! I'm so happy with it! I can't believe how well my 50% off mums are looking! They should come back large and in charge next year! On the other side of the bed, is the neighbors property and house. On this side of them, we will eventually have pavers and gravel, for a little sitting area next to our house. I love it!


  1. I was always so hopeful with mums, but they just aren't hardy enough for our area. I enjoyed this post. Reminded me of my homeschool days, getting areas all set up for school. Loved it! God bless!

  2. I got some mums for a planter in the front yard, yellow ones that look fluffy and pretty! I hope they last! They are so cheerful.

    I hope our weather gets cool and crisp soon. It's my favorite part of fall, but we don't usually see that kind of weather till November. I'm glad you're getting to enjoy it (in your jammies!).

    Have a great homeschooling day! God bless you.

  3. I like your mum's the word flower bed. I love mums!

    I've just been rearranging my work station space and it feels so much better. I'm sure you and your son's areas will be great and help you in your studies!

  4. We all love tacos AND pajamas around here, too! :) Love your mums.. so pretty!

    It's still hot here, but I am looking forward to the crisp mornings.
