As much as I love those beautiful days, I enjoy the dark, rainy ones too. Friday night we are planning a quiet night with grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, and some classic Halloween favorites. First...Elmo Says Boo! Then later, after a little one's bedtime...my annual Halloween viewing! I love that film...the original John Carpenter version from 1978. It isn't October without it. : )
Saturday looks to be cold and rainy. I need to do some lesson planning for school, which thankfully I totally enjoy, and then we have afternoon Mass. Plans are to go out for pizza after Mass and then head home for a cozy autumn evening. I am envisioning a cup of decaf and my book. : )
Sunday is THE day! The Walking Dead returns!!!!! We are soooo excited! And nervous. And scared. And excited. Before the big event, we are planning on making some Halloween iced cookies to enjoy and share with friends. Peyton found some cute cookie cutters and can't wait to give them a try. We will also watch our Steelers...but unfortunately Big Ben will be out for several games. I feel badly for him. And for us. But really for him. And I am praying for a quick recovery for him.
That is what is happening with us. Here is a look back at the past week here in our country home.
Last Saturday was beautiful...
Grandma came to Mass with us, and stayed the weekend!
The days continued to be beautiful, and we took advantage of every single moment.
Homeschool lunch outside! : )
Sunday morning, I enjoyed a special treat...
As well as a sweet scented candle that burned all day and made our autumn home extra cozy.
Flynn's science unit was all about leaves.
Which was perfect, don't you think?
We read about leaves and why they change, took leaf walks, went on rides enjoying the colors, did leaf crafts and investigations, and finished it all off with a yummy chocolate leaf. : )
Speaking of leaves...
"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."
And that we did.
(Pinterest for this one.)
Have a wonderful, cozy weekend, my friends.
Enjoy your leaves!
