So Far This Week
I spent an enjoyable weekend at home. Got a few things done around here but mostly visited with my kids. My son came up for a visit as well and that is always great. Love to get caught up on his busy life.
Hubby and I went and got hay for the goats for the winter. Feels good to have that taken care of. I was almost out of last years hay. The two things that must happen on our little homestead before winter sets in... firewood and hay! :) Firewood has been in for a while now so we are ready for winter.
Still waiting for baby boy grandson to make his arrival. Due date has passed but we tend to be a family that runs late so we are all practicing our skills in being patient, especially my daughter..
On My To-Do List
Today is my oldest son's birthday so hubby and I will heading over to see him this afternoon/evening and wish him a happy birthday. He is 34 today. It kind of shocks me to know I'm old enough to have a 34 year old son!! Ha, ha!! :) He is an incredible man and we are so proud of him.
I won't get a whole lot more done today and that is fine! :)
Projects I'm Working On
A friend of mine sent me an apron pattern. I'm thinking of pulling out the sewing machine and making one. Looks like a super easy pattern to make and I'm in need of a new apron. Could be promising Christmas gifts depending on how it goes (and how my time goes over the next month or so).
High of 52 for today with heavy showers later on. I'll enjoy the little bit of sun for now!

The sun is trying to peek through a bit!! :)
What I'm Reading
I'm now in the book of Numbers. It is an interesting book with a lot to learn about God. And a lot to learn about human nature. I love the fact that the book shows in a very real way that God is always with us. He was with the Israelites day and night, a pillar of cloud by day, a pillar of fire by night. Yet the people doubted and complained. How often can we be like that was one of my thoughts. It also showed how God was to be worshiped and that He is a holy God. So much to learn from these first 5 books of the Bible!
I'm about halfway through The Count of Monte Cristo. I don't think I realized what a big book this is!! I'm reading it on my Kindle so I did not have a visual of the size. I looked it up, the paperback version has over 1000 pages. I'm enjoying it so much! There is a reason classic books are considered classics, amazing story telling and writing.
What I'm Listening To
The dishwasher and my ticking clock... quiet morning.. my favorite..
Something Frugal I've Done This Week
I took my liquid hand soap that I made last week and took it one step farther. I used some of it to make foaming hand soap. It only takes a couple tablespoons of the liquid soap to make the foaming soap. What a way to stretch out my homemade soaps. I'm very happy with it.
Fitness for the Week
I did good this week, got my steps in 5 days this week. Had a couple days well over 10,000 steps. I can feel the difference in my day when I exercise. Walking is amazing!!!
