These days are passing much too quickly for me. September is almost over!?
I had this fantastic dream that when the older girls settled into school that my time at home with the three smaller girls would be heavenly.
I thought we would be lounging on the deck reading and coloring or creating miniature scenarios of Little People vs. Littlest Pet Shop Pets.
I believed that I would have extra time on my hands for crafting, that I would be endlessly baking or perhaps sipping a cup of tea and enjoying blogs (or blogging) when all three of my girls would magically and oh so willingly take an afternoon nap.
Wow. Not like that at all.
Well, I have managed to squeeze in a bit of craft time and I am currently creating an Autumn banner to hang in the dining room area.
(Mike installed some new Ikea lamps over our dining table that I simply can not get enough of!)
I also baked up a little flour storm this week!
I baked a loaf of Harvest Grain Bread and (2) Amish White Bread loaves.
I also made this Apple Cake from Smitten Kitchen. This cake was extra good with a mug of warm apple cider.
Mmm, I think I alone devoured a half gallon of the stuff...and that was just today.
I have tons of ideas rumbling around in my head and I think I should pull together a Autumn Resolution List. I want to finish some craft projects I started and wrestle with the mounds of summer clothes to make room for winter! I plan on beginning to sew the girls' Halloween costumes. I think the woodwork needs repainting and a new deep red color for my front door would look great!
I am also contemplating painting one wall in my dining room a dark pumpkin color. Work with me on this one, folks. I think it just may turn out to be amazing!
What's on your To-Do list for Fall? Anything exciting?
