Outside my window . . . the sun is shining but it is cool and frosty. We had our first hard frost last night. Good thing I picked most of my tomatoes this weekend.
I am thinking . . . about how children grow up way too fast. LT is walking everywhere now. My baby has become a toddler.
I am thankful . . . for family, a hard working husband, and that I am able to stay home with my little ones.
In the kitchen . . . roast chicken for supper tonight then we will use the leftover chicken in meals for the rest of the week.
I am creating . . . a meal plan for the rest of the week and some plans for a birthday party this weekend (to celebrate LT's first and Star's eleventh birthdays). Also crocheting a few things for birthday gifts.
I am wearing . . . grey sweatpants and a white T-shirt.
I am going . . . staying home today. Then Sky has soccer on Tuesday night and piano on Thursday. The activities for the year are getting into full swing.
I am reading . . . The No-Cry Discipline Solution by Elizabeth Pantely and for a fun light read I am also reading Dead Men Don't Crochet, part of the Crochet Murder Mystery Series by Betty Hechtman.
I am hoping . . . that this beautiful fall weather continues and that I take the time to enjoy it.
I am looking forward to . . . a double birthday party this weekend for my oldest and youngest whose birthdays are only a week apart.
I am learning . . . patience, you are always learning patience when dealing with little ones.
Around the house . . . a bunch of cleaning needs to be done as usual. Also this week I hope to go through the two little ones clothes. (Put away the summer clothes and the clothes they have outgrown and bring out the warmer clothes)
One of my favorite things . . . watching LT mastering her new skill of walking. She toddles around a bit like a drunken sailor, plops down, then (very determined) she gets back up and gives it another go.
A few plans for the rest of the week: cooking, cleaning, playing with the little ones, taking the older ones to their activities, and trying to enjoy it all.
A peek into my day . . . our chickens have started laying and we are happy to have an abundance of eggs. However, LT & LK discovered them and thought they were wonderful for some fun sensory play.
I am a stay at home mother of three girls aged 13 (Star), 11 (Sky), & 3 (LT or Lil), and a boy (LK) who is 5
years old. I live on a farm in rural Saskatchewan and I am striving to live a frugal and healthy life. I love crocheting, reading, and playing with my kids. I don't love cooking or cleaning but as they are part of my job description as homemaker I am trying to change that.
