At this moment, I am…

~recalling a fabulous weekend of crafting and fun.

~returning from a very early trip to the grocery store for our first round of Thanksgiving dinner shopping. ¬†A five o’clock (in the AM my friends) arrival time is a sure fire way to beat the crowds at the ole’ grocery store ūüôā

~glancing at my stack of Christmas cards, and thinking I may be able to get them in the mail on Friday.  Fingers crossed.

~looking forward to a short two days that my girls are in school this week.  I cannot wait to spend five full days with my babies!

~preparing for my favorite holiday of the year.  A day filled with family and food. What could possibly be better?

~hoping to get some sewing projects wrapped up this week.

~wishing each of you a wonderful start to your week.  Have a great Monday!

At this moment, I am…

~thankful for a most relaxing weekend spent with dear friends and family, while celebrating a wedding in the most beautiful of settings.

~gearing up for yet another hot, hot day.  Trying to get all animals cared for, and plants watered before the sweltering heat is upon us.

~glancing around my house this morning, realizing my day needs to be spent in the throws of cleaning.  Being gone all weekend did not bode well for the cleanliness of this place.

~listening to the tomatoes calling out to me. ¬†There are not many, but those that are hanging out in the garden are ripe and ready to be processed. ¬†(I think today I’ll make some tomato sauce. ¬†Nothing like a little sauce simmering on the stove for multiple hours on a ninety degree day, right?).

~enjoying this book in the wee hours of the morning and late at night after the little ones are tucked in.

~staring at the growing pile of laundry in my family room. ¬†Apparently, I should be tackling that instead of reading the above mentioned book ūüôā

~wishing you all a wonderful Monday, friends!

At this moment, I am…

~labeling all kinds of school supplies.  I still cannot believe school starts this week.  Where has this summer gone?  My stomach is churning as I think about it.

~harvesting rhubarb from our garden. ¬†I’m hoping to whip up some rhubarb squares later this afternoon. Yum.

~transforming a portion of our playroom into a library for my little book-lovers.  More on this revamped space later this week.

~re-reading Catching Fire.  Oh my.  I forgot how much I love this book.

~loading up the van with needed supplies for the school garden.  We are setting up an outdoor classroom space today, just in time for the start of the new school year.

~wishing we could add some more days (or weeks really) to this fleeting summer.

~hoping each of you has a wonderful start to your week.
