Today is the first day of October and I feel like I'm on the top of the slide, ready to launch into the madness below. Heritage Day is Saturday, followed the next week by an Alumni meeting, then School Carnival, report cards, parent teacher conferences, Halloween...October. October is also a month of testing, teaching, testing, re-teaching. Have to have something to put on the report cards after all!
I'm sitting here this morning thankful that my grandmother taught me to crochet. I made coffee and then grabbed a couple of small afghans off the pile I keep on the corner chair in the dining room. Each is just bigger than a wrap or shawl. Perfect for cold shoulders or laps. This morning I have one on my shoulders AND one across my lap. I was smart enough to get them out of storage and wash them this past weekend- not smart enough to do the same for my winter housecoat. LOL It's about fifty degrees this morning and I have all the windows open. Makes no sense, except that I love fresh air and I hate to constantly open and close the windows in the fall. It will be eighty degrees by noon.
My brother-in-law called from CA last night and we had a nice chat. I don't usually talk to him a lot because he and Gary have so little time to talk. Gary was working last night, so Mike and I talked about other members of the family and what has been going on here and there. I wish sometimes that the USA was a bit smaller. Weekends with family and friends in CA would be fun sometimes. Then we could alternate with weekends in VT and IA. However, did we get so spread out?
Nothing else going on this morning...Praise the Lord! There are days when we need to remember to thank Him for the ordinary. Have a good one!
