Well, a new week begins and I don't know about you - but we have been waaaaay too busy! Even with diligently trying not to be too busy our threshold is way over the top and we are craving quiet, homey and slower pace.
Busy weekends sort of set me off to a new week in a frenzy so I'm declaring this week stay-home-as-much-as-possible week!
Yesterday was gloriously chilly and after church I enjoyed just puttering around the house and doing little things that were restful and soul-refreshing.
I had seen these adorable signs weeks ago and a sweet friend made me the vinyl rub-ons so I could make a couple! I used the piece of wood Emily gave me at summer camp family day this summer which holds a sweet memory also!
The white one is in my Living Room and the black one went in a Thanksgiving Hostess Gift that I put together for a friend's adoption auction:
We have been spending Saturday mornings watching Samuel play flag-football and that has earned him the nickname "Rocket" as he loves to run fast!!!
I made this pumpkin bread and served the girls and their little neighbor friends on our driveway yesterday!
Oh, and we had our first outdoor fire of the season - a sweet friend from church graciously gave us a fire pit this summer and we are already dreaming of weekly evenings around the fire!
This morning, Math is going and hot tea has been served while everyone is snuggled under quilts as it is the first time it has fallen below 50 degrees! Yahoo!
Hope you are enjoying Fall - tell me about your weekend!
