OCTOBER 26thFOR TODAY...October 26th
Outside my window...the sound of sawing across the street that is from my neighbor's remodel that was started this month. Three months is the contractor's goal. My guess is 5 months--time will tell.
I am thinking...I am savoring every minute of today because it will be 62 degrees and looks like it will be the LAST day of fall. The weather forcast is for SNOW tomorrow and Wednesday!
I am thankful for... for my friend's progress. She is home from the hospital and feeling like her normal self after 3 months of infection and ICU stay. Love and prayers work miracles!
I am wearing... my dark brown jeans, orange long sleeved T-shirt and brown tweed blazer.
I am remembering...how cute my three little girls were and how wonderful they all have turned out.
I am going...to go shopping with my daughter and granddaughter. I have a 15% coupon from my favorite store. Yippee!! And bringing Ella along will be our built-in timer so we don't spend too much or stay too long.
I am reading... 101 Things to do with a Tortilla. I am teaching this class tomorrow night.
I am hoping... to get my two doors weatherstripped to keep me warm.
On my mind... women and friendships
Noticing that... the mountain is becoming less red and more brown with all the leaves falling.

"Being a mother at any age is a blessing, but as we age and our children become interesting and productive adults we really begin to savor the joys of the harvest, the fruit of our labors. How could we have known when they were young and the demands so constant that we would ever have the luxury of simply enjoying their loving companionship?"--Marjorie Pay Hinckley
From the kitchen... Pumpkin Molasses cupcakes made into mini pumpkins from yesterday.
Around the house... a lot of threads and scraps of material in the sewing room from a Christmas project on which I am working.
finding new uses for something old and also I love a bargain! My daughter gave me a cute coin purse with a picture of a woman saying "Frugal is such an ugly word". I broke out in laughter when I read it.
From my picture journal...
