I am so excited that Fall is almost here. Summer was nice, and I really loved it after having all the cold weather over the winter. But I really love Fall with the crisp, cool evenings. Makes for great snuggling weather! It is another busy week in my house, so I am so glad I can sit down and plan my week.
FOR TODAY September 14, 2014
Fall Is Almost Here!
Outside my window…It is so beautiful outside! We had a gloomy day yesterday that made you just want to nap. And, when I got home from work, I answered that call!!
I am thinking…that I really need to get this house under control. And keep it that way. Our friends are coming out in 18 days, so I need to get the house ready.
I am thankful… I am thankful for lots of things. My hubby, kids, our home, my IL’s, Turkey Hill Iced Tea. My job, my blog, yeah, I am pretty darn thankful!
In the kitchen… Still thinking about my menu plan for this week. I do menu plans for supper, but I really need to start planning all meals! I know I definitely want to make my easy summer chicken salad for lunch one day this week.
I am wearing… my pj’s. I am headed up soon to change and get ready for church. Jeans and a comfy t-shirt, that is what makes me happy.
I am creating… A company-ready home. A living room with steam-cleaned carpets so that it will be comfy for all. Having elderly pets is a real challenge sometimes.
I am going…To get the house cleaned up for Fall. I am patiently waiting for the weather to cool down a bit so I can have the windows open and get the house aired out really well. I want to also get decorated for fall, inside and out!
I am wondering… how a friend is holding up after a terrible tragedy?
I am reading… Nothing right now.
I am hoping… That I can create some new recipe posts for my blog. I have two that I did as guest posts. You can see them here: Lasagna Inspired Casserole Bake and Crockpot Mango Pulled Pork Sandwiches. What kind of recipes would you like to see?
I am looking forward to…My next day off. I have so much housework and blogging to get caught up on. I also need to work on social media, too.
I am learning…that sometimes you just need to take a risk to get what you want!! And you will never know if you don’t ask.
Around the house… Ummmmm. Get it clean is my main concern. Especially the carpets.
I am pondering… what I can do to maximize my time spent blogging so the rest of my house doesn’t suffer from it?
A favorite quote for today… “Miss Jen, why can’t you do storytime everyday? You do it the bestest”.
One of my favorite things… Having the day off with my family! And watching football. And spending time with my family while watching football.
A peek into my day…
Beheading some dragons. Or in this case, beheading the dinosaur!
