Week in Review: October 3-9

Last week...

I enjoyed a big ole bowl of stone soup. If you haven't heard the fable about stone soup, click HERE for one version of the story. The soup supper was part of a farewell  for my boss, John, who is heading out of the country on military leave for a year.

I snuggled with a new chocolate lab that belongs to a friend of mine. The girls & I fell in love with Steve. At least, I think that's what his name will be. But it's not official yet.

I enjoyed the coziness, indoors, of 2 fall days. They were chilly & happened to be rainy as well. All the other days were hot & yucky.

I froze my fingers at the last high school football home game on Friday. Next time I'm bringing out the gloves... & maybe the little hand warmers. I'm totally psyched to be going to the out-of-town games. There are a few left. Mini road trips with my photog pals is always silly fun!

I knitted. I know, what's new? Seriously, I am ever so grateful to  my friend Susan for teaching me this craft. It is something I can plop down & do in a moment's notice without necessary crafty supplies to set up or space to clear out in order to make room for all the necessary crafty supplies. And it's relaxing. I can't believe I was so intimidated by knitting. Well, I suppose I still am, with only a few stitches learned. But I'm conquering this crafty mountain!

I enjoyed a 3-day weekend with the girls, who spent one night camping indoors. We're really taking more advantage of the Wii, now that Netflix is gone. Family times have only gotten better!

I tackled the playroom & am rather proud of myself! It's been purged & decluttered & organized. It looks marvelous! Zoey screamed her head off in excitement when she saw it. (More about my continuing "30 Bags in 30 Days" project in an upcoming post.)

Today I'm running to 'the bluffs' (as they say 'round here), to pick up supplies for Crafty Night, which is tomorrow!! I'm excited! So that means that tomorrow will be busy, completely devoted to setting up & making things all Crafty Night-ish next door. While in 'the bluffs', the Mr. & I will also stop by a shoe store to check out new fall shoes for the girls. I traced their feet on paper this morning before they went off to school. (hee hee!)  And we need a few groceries. And I suppose we'll need a coffee stop in there somewhere...

Happy Monday!

  1. I was sooo disappointed when the weather warmed up again. Mother Nature can't tease me with crisp fall weather and then just take it away. Not fair!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
