Looking at my calendar today, I realized that October is not just next month anymore, but the end of this week! Wow!

With school back in session, these past 5 weeks have pretty much 
been a blur of work and dinner prep with catching up 
housework on the weekends. 

Recently, I was rather proud of my first attempt at a Shepherd's Pie. It wasn't the best, but fair for an initial go. 

Just now, this view of my stairwell is capturing my attention - partially because it is not quite how it is supposed to be and every time I go up or down these steps I think, "Boy, I really need to hang some decorations soon.And partially because I am really in love with this aqua quilt and the bright, friendly touch it adds to our dim stairway.

Our schedule this weekend is actually fairly open for a change, so maybe I can tackle that hallway and delve into my fall boxes. I am leaving work a smidge early Friday since John is having oral surgery that afternoon. He is rather nervous about it, so keep him in your thoughts and prayers this weekend. The doctor told him he is going to be SORE for quite awhile afterwards. Thankfully, I all ready have plenty of soups and puddings and jello at the ready. 

Hope the rest of your week is lovely. 
We are halfway to another weekend. Yay! 


  1. That Shepherd's Pie looks delish. The last time I had that my friend nearly burned her house down...but that's another story! I hope your Hubby has a quick recovery..I hate it when doctors say you'll be "sore" or "uncomfortable"...all That means is PAIN! I love that quilt!
    Blessings, Joanne
