...this weekend. And making a list of things to do. I am actually much less OCD about things than I used to be...and I make far fewer lists...but from time to time, I revert back to my old self and get serious about what needs done. : )
This weekend is our annual "Get ready for winter around the house" weekend. Our life seems to follow a comfortable, predictable pattern...and this time of year finds us preparing for the long months of cold and snow and inside life. We have a few things we like to do each year to make our winter life easier.
Steve will sweep out the garage and make room for Madison's car. I always park in the garage, but during the summer months, things seem to accumulate on the other side, leaving no room for her car. Time to take care of that. Steve will also wash the furnace filters...ugh...and change about a hundred light bulbs. Because the darkness comes earlier these days! We also put the hoses away, and tidy the other garage where we keep all the outside toys. Is it really time to pack away the water table and dust off the shovel? All in all, it isn't too much, but just enough to make us feel as if we accomplished something. Once done, we will continue to enjoy these glorious day of autumn. Hope you do as well! Here is what we have been up to here in our cozy, country home...
We're enjoying the crisp, sunny days...
and the chilly, windy ones too. : )
I am enjoying way too much of this cup of Heaven...
several times a day.
I'm wearing my new favorites...because I am mature like that.
We are taking field trips and leaf rides and finding all kinds of interesting creatures roaming around...
and going out to eat in Halloween clothes. And waiting for Mom to stop taking pictures so she can play Flappy Bird on my phone.
We are celebrating the return of our favorite show with zombie cupcakes made by our awesome small town bakery who love The Walking Dead as much as we do!
And we are taking selfies, because we got all dressed up to go out to dinner. : )
Have an amazing October weekend, my friends!
