For today...

I was inspired by Ali Edwards today...

Outside my window...
there are pine needles and pine cones in my front yard that desperately need to be raked. The grass is dead - a result of our decision to conserve water and save money this summer. The neighbors probably hate us. But I'm okay with it. I was tempted to put up a little sign in the yard saying something like "People all over the world carry water every morning for their most basic needs. In honor of them, we refuse to waste water to have green grass."

I am thinking...
that I really need to get into the shower. Busy day today.

I am thankful for....
my job. I really love it. It keeps me off the street.

From the kitchen...
Sloppy Joes last night... I know they're not gourmet, but my kids sure like 'em.

I am wearing...
sweats, my favorite jammie gown, a hoodie sweatshirt and slippers. Like I said, I need to get in the shower.

I am creating...
two commissions from the Fall Market I sold stuff at last month.

I am going...
out to dinner with two dear friends and Asia tomorrow night.

I am reading...
Humility: True Greatness by C.J. Mahaney and Josh Harris. It's the first book that's a required read for my internship at church... more on that sometime soon!

I am hoping...
that maybe we can go up to Green Bluff tomorrow as a family... would love to bring home a box of apples to make more homemade Apple Butter... I made some awhile back and am in love. It's SO good.

I am hearing...
Veggie Tales music from Ethan's bedroom and Switchfoot coming from Savannah's. Such is life in my house each morning.

Around the house...
I've been getting LOTS done lately - taking advantage of little snips of time and organizing what I can... somehow we've ended up with piles everywhere lately. Slowly working my way through them and getting them cleaned up. Also cleaning out closets and passing stuff on... feels good!

One of my favorite things...
saving money by not going to the latte stand... I was in a bad habit of always stopping on my way to work at the store since it was on the way... Now that I take a different path to work, I never go. Cash stays in my wallet a lot longer without that stop!

A picture to share...
Kyler at his XC meet in Richland last weekend... it was SO cold - all the boys were huddled under blankets waiting for their races. A few parents went to Fred Meyer up the street and bought Snuggies... and of course, Kyler - infomercial lover that he is - had to get one into his hands. Such a goofy boy.

Doesn't he look like Obi-Wan?

Have a great weekend, friends!
