Outside my window...sunny and warm (actually a bit too warm - it's the middle of September and it's about 90). The corn field across the street sits bare. Grass needs mowed.

I am thinking...too many thoughts. My mind is swirling and I'm having trouble staying focused.

I am thankful for...two weeks off work for the Hubby. Those were precious days. I'm really missing having him home today.

From the learning rooms...We've ended up with a two week break from the books. We tried the first few days he was home, but the kids trailed him. I'm sure they learned plenty that I couldn't have taught them from a book. Real life learning....the best! Today is our last day off. We're trying to get caught up on things around the house and mowing.

From the kitchen...baked mosticcoli, garlic bread, broccoli, homemade chunky applesauce

I am wearing...capri's and a blue t-shirt

I am creating...a clean and inviting home (well, trying)

I am get back to work on the house and get Bubby some Tylenol. He had a tooth extracted this morning.

I am reading...Blood on the River. It's about Jamestown. We are really enjoying it.

I am have the baby taking naps consistantly by the end of this week. What the heck, we'll shoot big....maybe she won't scream and throw up as an added bonus!

I am hearing...Bubby's dirtbike - he's just arriving home after checking his cows, the baby fussing because she wants to type, the grain dryer across the street, grasshoppers (or maybe it's crickets) reminding us that summer is ending.

Around the house...stuff, stuff and more stuff! A busy weekend of not being home equals a lot of stuff that needs put away.

One of my favorite things...all things pumpkin.....bread, cake, scones, oatmeal, pudding, pie....

A few plans for the rest of the week...schoolwork, soccer practice, nursery work at church, cleaning out the pool, vacuuming up cobwebs in the basement (it's spider season).

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Papa T. I'm missing him this week too. He's the Hubby's dad and spent nearly everyday here with us while we were residing. I loved having him join us for meals and just getting to visit. Hubby loved having that precious time with his dad. He was a HUGE help too!

Have a great week! For more simple women, go here.
