FOR TODAY…Thursday, October 7

Outside my window…the weather is perfect!

I am thinking…how much I love the fall season!

From the learning rooms…we are plugging along way ahead of schedule – and having fun, too! Gratefully, Andrew loves home-school and tries to get me me to do school on the weekends! Um, no!

From the kitchen…I’m nearing the end of my second week of Intermittent Fasting. I had a few hard days but over all, It is going very well and easier than I expected it to be.

I am wearing…the most comfortable flip flops I ever had that a friend bought for me a year ago. She bought them at K-Mart and I haven’t been able to find them since; which is too bad because I wanted to buy a couple more pairs of them.

I am creating…space. I am re-vamping my schedule so that I can spend more time in prayer and scripture reading. I am weeding out some of the “little things” that I have let get in the way of some more important things.

I am going…nowhere. 🙁 We only have one car and my husband has it for work. (I’m not complaining though, I’m grateful he is working.)

I am reading…from my blog reader. I have lots of blog reading to catch up on!

I am hoping…kids club isn’t canceled again next week! Andrew loves it and I love the little break it gives me each week.

I am hearing…The Biggest Loser. I am writing this Wednesday night as I watch a little television. I have a DVR, so I rarely watch a show live!

Around the house…we had to deal with a water-bug problem. Yuck! Over the last few weeks we kept finding around our apartment. One even fell on me a few weeks ago! (can you say gross??) It completely freaked me out and now every time I go in a room I inspect it for bugs.  Apparently, there are a lot of them around here where I live – especially in this apartment complex.

One of my favorite things…books. I don’t get to do a lot of reading nowadays, but reading is definitely my favorite past-time. I just pray that Andrew grows up loving books as much as I do. 🙂

A few plans for the rest of the week…nothing exciting; but, on Saturday some friends in OH are getting together and we will be doing a video call to see/say hello. The webcam is definitely a wonderful way of staying in touch with friends and family.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…I posted this already recently, but it is so cute I am going to post it again!

  3. Thanks for the peak into your day. No kids around my house these days, I’m old,old,old; really blows my mind how it snuc-up on me.

    I can relate to the bug-monsters. Last Saturday I noticed a web hanging from a patio chair next to the one I was sitting in; it had leaves hanging in it as the web’s of black widow spiders do. Picked up the cushion and gazed upon the belly of a black widow,hour glass if full array as it hung from the rungs of the seat. Laid down a chemical barrage and moved indoors!

      Oh, Joann, yuck! I hate spiders almost as much as I do water-bugs! lol!

      Thanks or stopping by and taking the time to comment. 🙂
