RIght now, I am...
:: marveling that it will be November 1st tomorrow and we have not had one snowflake fall yet! It really has been a lovely October.
:: tired of cleaning out garden, pots and greenhouse.
:: laughing as I pick up and put away all the toys that our grandchildren scattered across the living room last week. So many treasured memories of their antics and conversations!
:: overwhelmed that I still have a 20 lb. box of unripened tomatoes and 20 lbs. of apples, both from our garden, to deal with.
:: pleasantly surprised that I have nearly everything I need for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes I want to finish this week.
:: wondering, what to do with the tomato plants in the greenhouse. They aren't growing much and it's supposed to dip down to -6 degrees C by Friday. That means the heat would have to be on constantly and I dread even thinking about what our electricity bill would look like!
:: grateful that my 17 - 85 mm lens is back from the repair shop, rebuilt and working wonderfully.
:: hearing the wind as it rattles around the house today.
:: going to giveaway all the Halloween candy, I hope! We don't usually get many kids out here but I always buy treats, just in case - and then guess who eats them all up with some help from me?!
:: planning projects to sew for Christmas.
:: digging that Sew, Mama, Sew is starting their month of Handmade Holiday projects tomorrow!
:: knitting nothing - I wish I knew how!
:: listening to Blessings by Laura Story. I heard her on the radio in the tractor this summer and downloaded this song. I love it!
:: saying goodbye to another batch of tomatoes who are cooking themselves into salsa.
:: inspired by Ali Edwards to begin my December Daily album building.
:: happy to be home for most of this week.
:: delighted to hear 'tidings of great joy'!
:: waiting for the vacuum cleaner to propel itself around the house :)
:: being so very grateful for 56 years of living and all the joys of having a family!
