right now...

This week I am...
  • harvesting green beans every other day...ones that were supposed to be ready to harvest in July, finally growing. blanching them and freezing them, hoping to save enough for thanksgiving!
  • making one more batch of pesto before the basil flowers and is done
  • reading Patrick Taylor's Irish Country Doctor series in every free moment...and wishing for a quieter pace of life.
  • wishing that cooler weather would get here (tomorrow, they think!)
  • thankful for how pretty ragweed is...since it has no redeeming value otherwise 
  • thankful for antihistamines and good eye drops (see ragweed, above!)
  • getting out the autumn decorations...but not the halloween ones, yet!
  • feeling somewhat lacking in crafty inspiration....which is why you haven't seen more of me here on the blog
  • working on three separate knitting projects, all half-heartedly
  • promising myself not to start a new sewing project until I hem all 5 pairs of the girlies pants (2 done today, 3 to go) and work through my mending pile! 
  • looking forward to a girls morning tomorrow while the boy is at preschool (girlie has off for Rosh Hashanna)...haircuts, clothes shopping, and a library trip all planned by her!
  • planning an apple pie for tomorrow evening with friends
  • enjoying my new Bible study group from church, and looking forward to building new friendships
  • thankful for this list reminding me that there IS more to my days than disciplining a certain 3 1/2 year old only feels like thats all I've been doing!
the long awaited green beans!
Perhaps there will be some apple pie on this blog soon....stay posted!

    1. ha! some days I am convinced that the only words spoken to chase were that of discipline and correction. *sigh* these little guys will give us a run for our money!
