What I'm thinking: That I am really liking the time change. I don't mind it getting dark earlier; having a cozy evening with nice candles is perfect for the fall/winter. And it is so much easier to get up when the sun is coming up!
What I'm reading: Not much this last week....a friend of mine though is downsizing and gave me two bags of books and there were some good ones in there.
What I'm listening to: Normal Monday stuff......the laundry going, little voices upstairs and Bookworm practicing her piano.
What we're learning: Early Japan and Gregory the Great in history, formatting paragraphs in Writing Skills, and feliform (cats) carnivores in science.
What I'm watching: Beautiful Fall leaves. It is finally starting to look like Fall around here and I love the different colors.
What's cooking: Tonight it is a yummy Golden Creamy Winter Soup with leeks, potatoes and butternut squash, served with Gruyere toasts.
What I'm buying: I really can't think of anything I need to buy this week, except the normal grocery stuff.
What I'm thankful for: That our future is in the hands of the One who controls the world. Every November when we vote I remember this and am comforted.
What I'm creating: I'm still working on lesson plans for co-op; and I am really trying to perfect a silhouette photo for my photography assignment this week. This is a tough one.....
What I'm praying: For our pastor and elders. That God would give them wisdom and understanding as they lead and minister to our congregation.
What I'm planning: To be more disciplined in checking the children's work. With 4 of them, all doing different things, I need to remain consistent; making sure they finish their jobs/schoolwork/chores. It is easy to get lazy this way....
What we did this last weekend: We went for a bike ride to check out a brand new bike bridge in our town on Saturday. Then yesterday after our monthly fellowship meal we headed to the assisted living center for their monthly service. I love this way that my kids can minister to those who might not know Christ.
What I'm looking forward to: This week we have our 4-H club meeting, then on Thursday we are planning to go to our towns Veteran's Day parade.

~Over the weekend we ate this. What do you think it is? Guesses? Anyone?
