An Autumn Weekend Day Planner

Outside my window... the chickens cluck, the birds chirp, and there is stillness and cold.
I am thinking... of ways to be a better mother and wife.
I am thankful for... knowing the importance of the little things in life. not getting caught up in keeping up with the Jones and the drama that goes along that.

From the kitchen... homemade hot cocoa, carrot cake cupcakes and some yummy greek grilled chicken.

I am wearing... cardigans and wool socks.
I am creating... on the sewing machine, Thanksgiving napkins and in my mind, Christmas wish lists.

I am going... to stay right here under this blanket with my book!
I am reading... In The Company of Others by Jan Karon.

I am hoping... to find rest in Him.
I am hearing... peeps involved in a game.

We are learning...sign language, spelling lists, The first Thanksgiving

Around the house... smells of pumpkin brulee candles, the sound of a few Christmas songs (a little early but oh well), and cleaning out that terrible garage.
One of my favorite things... being with all my peeps on a lazy weekend.

I am looking forward to...cooking and baking for my family this Thanksgiving...especially my dad who is coming in!


  1. Sounds like the makings of a spectacular, cozy weekend!

  2. Sounds great.
    I see everyone is getting excited about Christmas....
