Relaxation Room at Spa.  Spent too much time here - appointment was an hour late...
Was not relaxed anymore by the time it was my turn.

September 28, 2015 - Journal

Today, I am...

 ... thinking about fall.  Feeling the nesting instinct and wanting to make the home cozy and warm as the weather turns cooler.

 ... thankful for my father-in-law who came for the weekend and helped William sheetrock our garage.  They made it further than they thought they would, so that is great progress.

 ... from my kitchen 4 loaves of banana chocolate chip bread.  Yummy.

... reading my planner.  Trying to get the week figured out.

  ... hoping for a long fall season!  I need to get the two additional garden beds that Sue made this weekend (Thanks, Sue!) put in place and then filled with soil.  So excited to have this done so when spring arrives I am ready to plant vegetables!

 ... creating a clean house for the week.  Spent a lot of the day on Sunday cleaning the kitchen and getting the house ready for this week. 

  ... hearing the sounds of heavy rain on the roof. 

 ... around the house a couple of my jade plants are dying.  I just transplanted them into bigger pots this summer, but it seems that the soil they are in cannot hold any water.   I may need to put different soil in if I can't get them to revive.

 ... seeing paperwork pile up.  Need to work on way to control the clutter - possibly pull the filing cabinet from the closet and set up in the living room? 

A few plans for the week...
Financial Management Meeting
Workout 3 Times
Chiropractic Appointment
Campfire with the Ladies from Church?

Waiting for my haircut last week  - checking out the cool woodwork in a century old house turned spa.

Eddie had a tantrum during Sunday School class, so he got a little one on one time with his Mom. 
Probably just what he wanted.  He has been going through an "only Mom" phase.  Only Mom can pour a glass of water...
Only Mom can change his diaper...  Only Mom can put him to bed...

Insulating the garage. 

September 21, 2015 - Journal

Today, I am...

... thinking about the next room in our house to get its makeover.  My bedroom!  I am on the lookout for a new chest of drawers for William and I to share.  Has to be fairly large and have at least 6 (preferably 8) drawers.

... thankful for a husband that listens to me and tries hard to make my ideas come to life!

... from my kitchen pork and lentil soup with kale.  A large pot of it.  Enough to freeze and eat on for most of the week!

... reading pinterest links for decorating my bedroom. 

 ... hoping for this week to be productive both in the office and at home.

... creating a menu plan for this week.  Now that it is getting cooler, I want warm foods.  Soups, potatoes, stews, etc.  And roasted vegetables.  Lots of roasted vegetables!

 ... hearing the sound of machinery working on the road.  Hopefully we will have new blacktop soon!

... around the house changing linens on all the beds.  So the laundry room is full of things to be washed!  And  I finally cleaned the shower.  No more science experiments growing in the drain!  And I had to shampoo (only used vinegar and hot water) our carpet on the stairs - dog peed on them again as she was running for the door.

... seeing leaves changing colors.  Quickly.

A few plans for the week...
Kindergarten school conference
Workout 3 times this week (very sore from Saturday's workout!!!)
Make appointment to take dog to vet.  Something has to be wrong with her bladder...
Financial Management review/budget meeting for October
