from our camping trip!
FOR TODAY October 4, 2012
Outside my window... It's really a beautiful day in Idaho, although it's kind of cool, and a little overcast. Our high today was only about 60 degrees . . . just right!
I am thinking... How much I could get done if I didn't have this darn head cold!
I am thankful for... Music, I really think my world would cease to exist without it!
From the learning rooms... I've learned that we all have the desire to make our mark in this life. When we were camping, I notices some Quaking Aspen that had names on them, so I took a closer look . . .
I especially like the last picture with the drawing of a man on the tree. I know that it was probably a sheep herder that left his mark . . . everyone wants to make his mark, to let the world know that, "I was here!".
From the kitchen... Not much happening in the kitchen . . . I hate to cook when I can't taste anything!
I am wearing... Jeans and a blue and white striped t-shirt . . . oh yes, socks AND shoes!
I am creating... I just crocheted a beautiful shawl for my mother for Christmas . . . shshshsh . . . don't tell, it's a secret! I found the pattern here, it was very easy and turned out really beautiful!
I am going... Not going anywhere - I really need to stay home and see if I can get over this cold!
I am reading... A very charming book called, Promiseland - the Journals of Callie McGregor, by Dawn Miller. It's a really good read about a young pioneer woman is ready for a real home after many long hard months on the trail. It tells of her struggles and her courage . . . very good!
I am hoping... That I will be able to blog a little more! It seems like I just really have not had enough time (oh, dear that dreaded word!) in my day to blog like I would like to!
I am hearing...Silence.
Around the house... Tomorrow I plan on getting some organizing done in my storage room so that I can fill up some shelves with food storage. Our local grocery store is having a case-lot sale, and I am filling up on some much needed supplies for winter.
One of my favorite things... Well, I would have to say my family. We have been very busy with grandchildren this month . . . it's all good!! Last week we were babysitting Jessica's kids while they went on a trip for their anniversary - it was lots of fun! Here are a few pictures of our month with some of our grands!
Holding hands with grandma and grandpa.
I can't believe how fast they grow!
Football season is almost over . . . I can't tell whether that's good or bad?!
Our sweet little Emily, winning an award at school - I was so proud of her! Such a sweet little face!
Nathan, learning to eat eggs with a fork. . . oops!
Showing grandma what an elephant says!
I was taking this picture through the window, and Caleb spotted me . . . say cheese!
The highschool had it's homecoming game while we were babysitting - with fireworks and cannons! It was a very noisy night!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Friday - organize shelves and go shopping
Saturday - watch general conference
Sunday - watch general conference
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
