Right now, I am...

:: enjoying a quiet rainy afternoon.  Sydney is napping.  Henry is puttering with Lego's but is waiting patiently for me to work on hanging up Halloween decorations with him.
:: ecstatic that my boys slept in a bit this morning and were happy about going to school. 
:: feeling content at home.  Travelling on a weekend ALWAYS makes me anticipate being home again.  I LOVE and NEED that feeling. 
:: vowing to start shopping more wisely and getting back into grocery shopping with a budget.  Promise.
:: wanting to get back to IKEA to exchange a few frames and items so that I can finish my photo wall.  

:: riding the wave of emotions that comes with losing a loved one. 
:: enjoyed a pumpkin spice latte this morning.  Kind of rich.  But also yummy. 
:: holding off on cleaning the bathroom until just before my mom arrives.  Maybe just my excuse.
:: thinking that baking pumpkin bars this week might be scrumptious.

:: grateful for a weekend with family to celebrate a loved Grandpa's life...but also glad to have absorbed it all in the quiet too.  And all the visiting, calling, emailing, and writing to my grandpa made losing him much easier to live through. 
:: anticipating  my mom arriving tomorrow.  I treasure our time together.

:: excited that I get to be an aunt to another little joy.  My sister is expecting...have I mentioned that!
:: itching to get a new pair of jeans.

:: wishing for more time in the day and for boys that went to bed with more peace.

:: wondering what we should have for dinner tonight. 

:: hoping to make more time for blogging, because it is a favorite and best in my life.

Life just keeps whipping along, friends.  Let's catch up (make sure your comment has your email attached)What are you doing this afternoon?

Inspiration for this post is from here.

This afternoon we took crummy naps and then played with new birthday toys, put coats and hats on to play outside and practice on the new big girl bike, baked chicken prices and cuddled!!
Great to have seen you Sunday..even if it was short and serious. :)

Welcome home. I've been thinking of you.

This afternoon I came home from work, worked on Bean's "new" room and made dinner. Now... getting ready to make some hot tea with honey and enjoy a moment of mindless television before going to bed.

Goings on at the Glenn's said...

enjoy your mother-daughter time!
