First of all, I just want to welcome those of you who are visiting my little space here for the first time. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come back. And welcome back to all my friends who visit when they have time (you guys rock!). I am so very thankful for you and the time you take to join us.
This post is just some random thoughts and tid bits about what is going on in my neck of the world. Kind of like if we just sat down over coffee or tea and chatted, caught up, and enjoyed each other's company. And what better way to wrap up a really busy week than this!?!
We checked off our annual visit to some pumpkin patch on the way to the game with a stop by Casa De Fruta. Things have been so busy that I just don't think that it's going to happen any other time. So, we got out and played in the rain, picked some cute pumpkins and headed on down the road.
Well, that's just a tid bit of things that have happened and I am gearing up for another crazy busy weekend. . . just bring it!
Here are some other random thoughts:
:: This election: I can't take it. I am done. My husband likes to send me crazy videos that people put together about the debate. Videos like this one. Laughter might be the only thing that gets me through this.
:: I know we are full on Fall mode, and these pumpkin muffins are being pinned and repinned like crazy! I don't blame them. . . they are amazing!
:: I am still reading the same book Simply Tuesday and it keeps tugging on my heart strings. . . I think she wrote it just for me. . . uhhh. . . anyone else feel that way with a book?
:: My son has been reading about what the Bible says about courage during his weekly Bible Study and I can't tell you how many times I have been reminded of those verses this week. . . be strong, be courageous, for the Lord, your God goes with you . . . oh, and Time Hop brought up a video of Ethan reciting the same verse when he was 3. Yep. I guess these are things I need to hear, because I have a project that I am just sort of scared to start. It's one that I am not sure I want to share with people yet, but it's something that God has been whispering into my ear since last spring when I started praying about what he wanted from me now that both boys were in school.
:: I got to have lunch with a dear, sweet friend and former college roommate this week. It's amazing how time gets away from you and suddenly it's a good 7 years since you've hung out. It was so refreshing to go have lunch and pick up right where we left off. Is there a friend in your life that you need to reconnect with?
And well, I think it's time I should go. The day awaits and so does the "to-do" list that is ever growing. I hope and pray that you have a blessed weekend! Take some time to do something creative, read a book, or go on an adventure . . cor even call up a friend and see how they are doing.
