Outside my window the sun is filtering through the trees. While I don’t enjoy it getting dark earlier in the evening, having it get light earlier in the morning is nice.
I am thinking about our Thanksgiving menu. My parents are coming for Thanksgiving this year. For the first time ever. Dad offered to bring a smoked turkey, and I told him I would take care of all the sides and fixin’s.
I am thankful for a great marriage. Love that man!
I am wearing a red-and-white checked button-up shirt… love the BIG checks… with a denim skirt. A friend cleaned out her closet and passed along three bags of clothes this past weekend, so I’m enjoying a “new” wardrobe this week.
I am creating a Spice of Life afghan on the recommendation of my friend Judy. I’m using up random colors of yarn from my stash rather than following the recommended color scheme, but I think it’s coming together nicely. It’s definitely an addictive pattern, changing stitches and colors every row or two.I am going on a “honeymoon” this weekend! When the kids were little that’s what they called our anniversary get-aways. Seems appropriate to me. Looking forward to a mini-vacation with my sweetheart.
I am reading All Things Hidden by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse, a novel set during the Great Depression in Alaska.
I am learning to fit in little walks throughout the day, with a goal of walking at least 10,000 steps a day. My current average is 2,500 to 3,000. So I really need to “step it up.” (Pun intended.)
In my kitchen I need to get the pantry and spice cupboard cleaned out before Thanksgiving.
