Quick Takes

Some fleeting thoughts...
  1. I really, really long to spend more time outside while I can just now. Soon the foliage will be dry and gone and it'll be so cold to be out. I am inspired by this eclectic mama.
  2. Ralph had reconstructive surgery last week. This has been more challenging for me than I even thought. I would rather have him here, unable to do anything, than gone on travel though. I'm so grateful he can work from home just now.
  3. I've been working out my month-long-menu. October was my first shot and it was a success. I loved not doing a major grocery shop every week. (The kids do too.)
  4. I have too many things that I want to do right now, and am not being to reasonable about it. I am overwhelmed with all there is to be done.
  5. Joey had his first vision therapy appointment today. It went well. This was the first appointment of six months of therapy.
  6. I am deep into a good book and am enjoying to the hilt. Simple pleasures.

Loved these snippets too! And SOMEone figured out the 3 column thingy...:) I likey.

Hoping Ralph continues to make leaps and bounds...well, not literally, cause that might set him back...but you know what I mean.

I, too, have been TRYING to do the menu thing. It's work at first, but so worth it in the long run.

Glad Joey's getting help for his vision, hope it makes a world of difference!!

Oh how I long to read a good (fiction) book. But I AM enjoying The Excellent Wife, and I guess I
AM slooooowly reading a fiction book called Thorn in My Heart by Liz Curtis Higgs thats really good so far, but like I said, I RARELY have time to sit down with it.

Now that my comment has become a book you'll have to read, I'll be done now.;)

I like the new blog look. I think I need some blog decorating tutoring from you! Boys NOISE school - perfect! Fun seeing you on the road today. The kids keep talking about it. I love our small community. We must get them together for some play time.
