For Today -
Outside my window...dark, still, & finally feeling like Fall.
I am thinking...about all the ones in the path of Sandy.  So scary & so sad. 
I am thankful for...the sweet blog friends that have given me a warm welcome back to blogging.  It's good to be back!
I am remembering...the fun we had at Emily's ballet studio's trunk or treat. 
On my mind...again, all the ones in the path of Sandy.  Heartbreaking to see all the news coverage.
From the learning rooms...still trying to learn things about my camera.  I sometimes don't think I will 'ever' learn all that there is to learn about it!  A point & shoot sounds appealing at times!
From the kitchen...lingering smells of popcorn.  We had movie night tonight (Madagascar 3).
I am jean capris & cream colored top.
I am creating...a custom iPad case.  I think it's going to turn out very pretty.  I'll share a pic when it's finished.
I am going...up to bed very soon to read.
I am Bible, & finishing up 'Wooing Sam Walker's Widow', by our blogger friend Pam from A Country Homemaker.
I am hoping...Sandy leaves very soon, & that the damage is much less than anticipated. 
I am hearing...Emily & Avery playing a game.  Avery is here for her weekly visit.
Around the house...filled with the laugh of children.
One of my favorite things...hearing Elliot, Emily, & Avery laugh as they play. It's music!
A few plans for the rest of the week...typical week - grocery shopping, homeschool, ballet & tap classes, & a good thorough cleaning of our garage.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing...Emily as Alice in Wonderland, & Transformer Elliot - all ready to go to trunk or treat at Emily's ballet studio.

  1. Such a cute photo! And Emily is holding Lily Trixie Lily. (not sure if It remembered the name right) Yes, the storm's devastation is unbelieable. I've been watching coverage on TV.
