Once again this Monday, I'm taking time to join Sandra for this link party over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
A mostly sunny day! It's currently 74º and sunny. Only 49% humidity which isn't bad at all. There's a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon, though. Of course. Seems like the norm lately. Yesterday though was a gorgeous day with fall-like temps. A campfire last night at camp actually felt good!
As I look outside my window:::
Everything is still very lush and green from all the rainy weather. One really delightful bloom which I hope to blog about soon is a pink phlox transplanted from my childhood home to the grounds of our little camp. These flowers are very special to me, as my mother had transplanted them from her grandparents' farm in Vermont. My childhood home has been torn down now and last fall, my hubby rescued these flowers from what would have been certain oblivion.
Above are the phlox as they looked in an overgrown garden area at my parents' home. What I am seeing at our camp is just a few single blooms so far. But I am ridiculously pleased and excited that they are blooming in their new habitat.
Right now I am:::
Thinking and pondering:::
Continuing to ponder the concept of "outliving one's life" and this quote from an article by Krista Sivnksty in an older Frontline magazine (January/February 2021):
A lamp, three books, a pen and a jar of lavender-infused oil for helping with insect bites.
On my tv this week:::
A robin singing "Cheerily, cheerily" outside the window.
On the Breakfast plate:::
I do intermittent fasting so don't have breakfast. Lunch will be a salad with cubes of turkey and avocado in addition to tomatoes and leaf lettuce..
On the dinner plate:::
I usually plan my menus from Thursday to Thursday, and grocery shop on Friday morning. A few meals on my menu plan:
Plan menus and make grocery list
List some notions, patterns, cards, and kids' books on Etsy
Attend two memorial services -- one on Tuesday for a friend's dad, one on Thursday for a church friend
Take a bag to the thrift store
Work on my Sunday School lesson
