Sunday afternoon we celebrated Sam's 31st with a cookout, beautiful weather, outdoor fun on the ATV, and a rousing game of Nertz. Sam won by far.
Monday I got right to work on my giveaway. I selected five candle holders from Mike's pottery to choose from.
Indian summer will not last, so I needed a last photo of fall decor.
Wednesday, I was visiting my mother and as a bonus got to see the niece just before she headed to Chicago to read her paper about technology in missions at a big conference. So proud of her! In the photo, before rushing out the door, a routine breakfast--bowl of cereal and Facebook.
Michael came back from vacation with at least 22 pottery ideas he'd been mulling over, but he is very responsible and as they say "first things first". Unfortunately, there was some more work to be done on the heating system and outdoor stuff to tend to while the weather is good. Pobrecito, no pottery puttering this whole week.
After working so hard all week, catching up and settling back into the home duties, it felt good to take today off and go to the Creation Museum with the newly formed group of seniors from our church, the Elderberries.
I started a new hobby this week and I am so excited about it, but I can't tell you yet because it is a Christmas surprise.
What have the rest of you been up to? It is a busy time of year, but I do hope we still find time to check in with Sara and friends.
