For Today

For Today...
Outside my Window. . .is a clear, fall day. The sky is blue and cloudless, except for over the mountains. The clouds are huge cotton balls, nestled in between the peaks and hugging the entire front range. So beautiful.
I am thinking . . . that I have a long list of things to accomplish today. But it's all good, so I'm going to try not to get bogged down in what I have to do and instead enjoy all that I get to do.
I am thankful for. . . living in a country that allows us to be free to live as we do. That we get to have elections and if we don't like the leadership, then we can run for office and present our own plan.
From the kitchen. . .cranberried pork roast in the crockpot.
I am wearing. . . jeans! And a tee shirt and flip flops. Because it's cool outside, but the sun will warm the day in no time.
I am reading...Those Who Save Us (see my sidebar)
I am hoping. . .to get caught up today. Ha!
I am creating. . .order out of chaos in our rec room
I am hearing. . .the neighbor's leaf blower
Around the house. . .needs to be vaccumed. We were at a soccer tournament this weekend and the Saturday chores didn't get done.
One of my favorite things. . .Yankee Candle's Frosted Pumpkin
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . .Driver's Ed for Luke, Soccer for Em, work the concession stand at the high school football game for Dan and me.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you. . .
Thank you Susanne, for presenting the opportunity to reflect on the week ahead. It

Hi Karen,

You were listed ahead of me on Peggy's Simple Woman Daybook list for today...and I have been checking out a new person's blog each week.

I love hearing about the fall activity in your family, and will pray that what the Lord wants you to accomplish, you will get done -- and that your family relationships will grow while stuff is getting done.

Have a blessed week,

Loved the pumpkin pictures.

I love the Yankee Pumpkin candle's, too. Sniiiifff....Ahhhhh.

I love the pumpkin patch. It's funny how the site of a pumpkin conjures up all our favorite images of fall. :-)

I have been wondering how to cook the pork roast in the freezer! I can't recall if I've ever cooked one before, but I did pick one up on sale at the grocer's last week. I'm off to google cranberry roast recipes!
