Labor Day, September 6th

Outside my window... ~it is dark. I am so glad to see fall, but not so glad to see the night come earlier and earlier.

I am thinking... ~ if I was wise, I would get up and finish the dishes.

I am thankful for... ~the little things.

I am wearing...
~my "everyday" stuff...old T – shirt, older jeans, bare feet; the uniform of farm life.

I am remembering...
~ all I have to do the next few days!!

I am going... ~ try to learn something new this week.

I am currently reading...
~nothing...who has time to read in the summer, the garden and the bounty there of, has stolen my reading time, but I have a stack of books waiting on “the right time.” (Sorry, some things don’t change in seven days. Still putting okra in the freezer!)

I am hoping... ~ for some time alone (hahaha)

On my mind... ~ did you know, when the Israelites wandered in the wilderness, they made camp in 42 different locations? In Revelations the a.c. will be in power for 42 months. I think there is a definite connection, but I haven’t made it, yet!

Noticing that... ~ I lost a follower. I hope I didn’t offend

Pondering these words... ~ Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~
Philippians 4:8

From the kitchen...
~Homemade sourdough bread

Around the house...
~ lots to do!

One of my favorite things... ~ sleeping with the windows open!

Enjoy your journey... ~

Hope you are having a lovely Labor Day Weekend!

  1. Cheryl, I have missed you during your long break from blogging. It is lovely to read you again.

    How much okra did you harvest?

    Your number 42 has also intrigued me...

    Take care my friend. xxx

  2. I hate losing followers and not knowing why too! I doubt it was anything you said - I think sometimes people have to winnow down to what they really have time for.

  3. Great list. Sorry about the follower, I agree with Elena, sometimes do get overwelmed and have to thin out thier reading list.

    sleeping with the windows open is the BEST.

    Have a great week!

  4. My followers count goes up one day, down the next.....sometimes I lose track. Try not to lose any sleep over it. Some people simply leave the blogging world and take down their profile (and the blogs they're following) right along with them. Others end up with reading lists so huge, they end up trimming them down.

    Love your photo. What a beautiful shot.

  5. Oh yes, sleeping with the window open ... the best!
