For Today

Outside my window... the trees shedding their leaves, ankle high in some places. Time to get the rake out again.

I am thinking... of my friend Mary Anne and how well she does under pressure.

I am thankful for... my friend Julie who donated 3 bags of yarn from her shop for our prayer shawl ministry at our church. It touches so many people with our prayers and the offering of a shawl.

I am wearing... my new sweater I got on sale and pants from church. Soon into jeans to rake leaves.

I am remembering... when the boys were little and they used to rake neighbor's yards and then bring the leaves home so they could jump in them. Now the trees are big and so are the boys.

I am going... to be in Colorado at the cabin for Thanksgiving and can hardly wait. My favorite place on earth.

I am reading... Mennonite in a Little Black Dress for our Book Club. Just starting.

I am hoping... to accomplish lots this week. Finish my current prayer shawl, clean up more leaves, get in lots of bicycle time if the weather holds and work on the basement. Should I put Christmas list there?

On my mind... my friend Jan who just lost her brother.

From the kitchen... beef stew tomorrow in the crock pot.

One of my favorite things~ tailgating with friends at a fall football game. Especially when we win!

From my picture journal... Halloween with Linden (Pumpkin Fairy) and Maebry ( Death Bride)
