Today I 'm thinking about...
...Delegating. Or rather, my lack thereof. I have a hard time remembering that others are more than capable of doing things around the house. It isn't that they won't do it, or that I think I do it better myself. Rather, I simply do things without thinking. I was reminded of this yesterday, as I was folding a large basket of laundry. Flynn came over and offered to fold the washcloths. In that moment, I realized that I need to start including my children in certain things I often don't even consider. My four year old is indeed capable of folding washcloths. It was helpful to me of course, but even more so rewarding for her. Lesson learned. : )
...Autumn. And how much I love it. I have always been an autumn person, so much more than summer. Apologies to all you sun people out there. I hate being in the sun! Always have. I don't like the heat or the rays or the sweat or the burn. Hot summer days find me inside. With the air conditioning on. Drinking tea. So when autumn rolls around...with its crisp air and cool breezes...shorter days and cozier nights...colorful leaves and pumpkin flavored everything...I am happy. And that is that.
...The big box of freshly delivered cupcakes from our small town bakery. And which one Im going to have with my afternoon coffee. : )
Here are some pictures of this past week in our country home...
My Madison...her first time driving herself to work. Or anywhere. Alone. Such a good sport. She let me take a picture before she drove off. And I will admit, when she did, I thought back to the baby I brought home from the hospital. And then I went inside and prayed Hail Marys until she called to let me know she got there.
Flynn worked hard on a Hop Scotch board...
and it was just perfect. : )
I love to iron. Especially Happy Ironing like Halloween dresses for my girl.
Last Saturday was chilly...the perfect day for coffee and a movie.
Pretty evening sky. No filter. Who needs one?
Autumn mornings. Before Mass. My baby.
She dislikes the sun too. : )
One with her Peyton...
and one with her mommy.
Sunday was park day...
followed by FOOTBALL!
It's back. And we are happy. : )
We celebrated my hubby this week!
My man turned 44!
Happy Birthday to the best hubby and father around. : )
We love you.
And cake. We love cake too. : )
Happy Autumn Weekend, my friends!
Oh...and for the record...I went with the caramel brownie one.
First. ; )
