 ~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

this morning from my front porch . . . 

the promise of another mild November, fall day

i am remembering . . .

 the last soccer game, pumpkin shaped sugar cookies, “all-hands” outside preparing for winter, our daughter and her boyfriend carving a pumpkin,
sharing a beautiful Friday evening with friends; grilling chicken in November

i am thankful  . . .

a husband who loves his job & bears the financial burden of his family on his shoulders,
AND celebrating 24 years of marriage with this wonderful man.

from the kitchen . . .

completed puzzle, roasted pumpkin seeds, soccer ball and shin guards, carved pumpkin on the kitchen table, dirty dishes in the sink, jars of preserved bruschetta, sunshine

i am hoping . . . only in the Lord

i am reading . . .

my favorite church cookbook for meal inspiration, November issue of Southern Living

I am thinking . . .

this is going to be the longest 48 hours of my life until the election results
and a location for a bigger garden next spring

around the house . . .

Fox News, an over-flowing office, an empty porch

one of my favorite things . . . cleaned-off kitchen counters, beds made

a few plans for the rest of the week . . .

 finding the bottom of my desk, finishing project “organize-legos”,
watching “It’s a Wonderful Life”, planting garlic and a rhubarb start,
cleaning out the shoe basket by the back door, green tomato relish

a verse of Scripture . . .

“Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, . . .” Psalm 149:1-5

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you . . .
