Outside My Window…it’s been a blustery weekend. The weather has changed, and leaves are turning. A neighbor is watering her lawn, and the sun is setting.
I am thinking…about the movie “Fireproof”, which DSH and I saw yesterday afternoon. It was a very good movie with a lot to think about. I realize the acting isn’t that great in some parts, but overall these amateurs did a wonderful job of conveying the emotion and heart of this movie. I loved everything about it and am looking forward to more movies by Sherwood Productions.
I am thankful for…hope.
From the kitchen…I’m currently fixing some chili (my mom’s midwestern version, a true chili aficionado would scoff at calling this chili 😛 ) and will soon begin fixing our breakfast for the week.
I am wearing…sweats!!! It’s brisk, summer is gone.
I am creating…a calendar of due dates for all our bills so that we know what’s due when.
I am going…to make sure our bedding is dry and then make our bed.
I am reading…“Don’t Know Much About History”, an overview of American history.
I am hoping…that it won’t cost too much to get the moonroof repaired in my car. Something in the track broke and it’s stuck in the open vent position. It wasn’t a huge problem in summer due to no rain, but with rain season nearly here it’s a problem. I also can’t wash my car, so my beautiful Cruiser is dirty. 😦
I am hearing…the wind in the leaves and House Hunters on tv.
Around the house…we are slowly – very slowly – getting things into order. It’s amazing how much stuff we have and how much time it takes to get it all in order.
One of my favorite things…Honeycrisp apples, and it’s the time of year when they’re in season!!! Yummmm….if you’ve never had a Honeycrisp apple, you need to try one. They’re delicious 🙂 Firm and crisp, tart and sweet.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: We need to take my car to the dealer to get the moonroof fixed, on Wednesday night I’d like to watch the last debate, but our small group bible study is also meeting, so I think I’ll be late for that. On Friday and Saturday I’ll be attending a Donna Partow conference, and on Sunday it’s my day to set up the donuts and coffee and clean up afterwards. I am also planning to make this recipe tomorrow night after work.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…Honeycrisp apples 🙂
A quick apple coring tip – use a melon baller to core the apple, it’s quick and easy! (I learned this on Good Eats, the best and most fun cooking show on TV 😀 )
