Happy Monday!

Hello everyone! It is a cold gray rainy day here. I ran out this morning before it started raining and I began blowing and then bagging leaves in my side yard to prepare for leaf pick up tomorrow.  It was quite funny if you could have seen me rushing to beat the rain. Which it won out towards the end, but I had to see it through. We still have so much more leaves but I like when they pick up the bags instead of us having to haul them to our compost site.

I had a fantastic weekend. I spent all day and evening with my crafty divas and as always I leave feeling so happy and inspired. The variety of the crafts taking place in that one room was mind-blowing. From sewing, crocheting, knitting, scrapbooking, cardmaking, wreath-making, creating holiday items to creating shadow boxes. It is so amazing and never will I take their friendship or our gatherings for granted. It’s truly magical and I am blessed to be a part of it. Above is a photo of some of the things I worked on while I was there. Oh, and I didn’t even mention the food. So many yummy options including desserts!

Let’s see on the renovations front, we finally selected a carpet and we should receive a confirmation once it’s in for the installation date. But I think no later than the first week in December. The painting has begun but we ran into a bit of a problem with the roller so Leao is going to try something else to see if he can get a better application before we proceed with the color. I am quite nervous because I am going from white walls to a deep rich color. I am so tired of hospital white walls in my home that I am slowly moving towards color. So I will share photos as soon as we finalize the color.

My boys are doing well. Nick got his first XBox gaming system last Tuesday and he is on cloud nine. Both of them are getting excited to be spending the holidays with my in-laws again. We have such an amazing time and I love seeing my in-laws soak up their grandkids. It’s quite special. I am so grateful they have each other.

Well, I am off to do a little work and a little laundry and then I have a date with my book because it is just that kind of day!!

Have a blessed day!
