Outside my window... The sprinkle of orange that fought through the green leaves just last week has gained some ground. The oaks are still green, but their battle is a loosing one, and I'm happy to say that by next week, the hillsides around our home will be alive with the warmth of autumn colors. THEN, it will be time for bonfires, hot cocoa, and sweaters and boots. I look forward to the next few week all year long!
From the kitchen... We took the easy road this morning and had cereal for breakfast... No prep time, and just as little clean up involved. For lunch we'll likely do macaroni and salad, and dinner... is yet to be determined.
From the Learning Rooms... I stopped by a teacher store over the weekend and picked up some great math manipulatives. I'm excited to use them Thursday. We're still working on basic addition with Little Mister. Last week's lesson was fairly successful, and I thought he did a great job for his first day out. He was even using subtraction skills later while eating some fruit snacks. "Mommy. I have 2 fruit snacks. Now I'm eating one. I have one left. Now I'm eating 1 more. Now they're all gone!"
I am creating... a clear porch. Hubby and I cleared off the boardwalk yesterday evening. As soon as we get rid of the air conditioner unit on our front porch, I think I'll be able to tackle the rest of the clutter on my own.
I am reading... The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather. This is the first library book I've checked out for myself in years. I must say I'm quite content between the wrapped covers and yellowed pages. There's something about a library book that does my heart good... must be the English major in me.
I've decided to post past Halloween pictures this month. First up is Little Mister's first.
Thanks for stopping by,
