Tuesday's Tidbits...

Today was a another beautiful, autumn day!
I am loving the weather very much!
I love to be cozied up in a warm sweater,
drinking a warm drink on a cool, breezy day!

Before heading out today,
I was able to get some laundry done
and some phone calls made
as the children enjoyed themselves
with coloring and academics...

The lil' girls colored as Will did some copywork.

Ally worked on Advanced Chemistry and worldview.

This afternoon, we left to go to the post office
and to the commisary for groceries.
When we arrived home, we put the groceries away
and I prepared supper as the children played outside.
After supper we read another chapter of
"Summer with the Moody's".
I know it's autumn and we still haven't finished it
but I hope to pretty soon. ;o)

After the children went to bed,
I worked at cutting the Christmas fabric
for my dress, using the new pattern that arrived today!!
I was able to cut most of it out, to my delight. ;o)
I hope to work on it more this week, Lord willing,
and then, whenever I finish my dress,
begin on the lil' girls dresses
and a matching bow tie for Will.
We'll be busy, but it'll be busyness at home,
which is a wonderful place to be. ;o)

I hope y'all are enjoying your week, too.

"Praise ye the LORD.
O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever."
~ Psalm 106:1



I always enjoy visiting at the home of HsKubes. Today was no exception. I can't wait to see your and the girls dresses and Will's bow tie. Have a good night and God bless. connie from Texas

What method do you use for cutting out your patterns? Do you have pictures of it on another post I could look at? If you're still using pins and scissors let me know....I have a method that will save you TONS of time!

Mrs. T said...

Pam--I'd like to know your method! :D

I can't wait to see pictures of your dresses :) I hope you continue to enjoy your week. :)

I love the pictures of the children working around the table, and Ally hard at work, too. The blessings of homeschooling at it's best, I think.
I'm a big fan of cooler weather, and the cosy feeling that comes with it. I am working on several projects, as you are, that are things I enjoy doing inside with the cooler temps outside.
Home *is* such a wonderful place to be.
I wasn't sure about the farm, but thought maybe it was the one we were heading to because Christie only knew of one in the area that they went to last year. Apparently, you can eat in their restaurant and then enjoy a Christmas hayride. We're hoping for cold weather! ;0)

I love seeing what the family is up too. I don't know how you find time to do all that sewing but I love it. Can't wait to see some of the finished dresses.

Christie Belle said...

Whew...trying to catch up a bit. Looks like y'all have been keeping busy! The weather has been wonderful, hasn't it? I was definately ready for relief from the heat! Wow, it shouldn't be too much longer 'til your honey is coming back home! I know you can't wait! Have a good rest of your week!

I didn't get to comment on Monday's post, but I wanted to say what a sweet hubby you have. The flowers were gorgeous. I always tell my husband that I don't need flowers to know that he loves me, but a surprise is always nice, isn't it?

I LOVE being busy at home. It's much different than being away from home. Happy sewing!

A beautiful life......

Love Ally's OREO pillow. Just so happens to be my favorite cookie!

Can't wait to see your Christmas dress.

Connie ~ It's a blessing to know you enjoy visiting. I sure delight in hearing from you. ;o)
I can't wait to share our finished projects. ;o)

Pam ~ Oooh! Thanks so much for sharing!

Mrs. T ~ I look forward to sharing our finished projects. I hope you were able to see Pam's post. ;o)

Karen ~ Yes, home IS such a wonderful place to be. ;o)
I have heard that particular farm has a lovely restuarant. I'm sure y'all will enjoy it. ;o)

Tori ~ I was glad to see you dropped by. ;o)
lol... I don't really know how I find the time... I guess I just make it. The time does not go uninterrupted, I assure you. ;o) But interruptions can be a blessing. ;o)

Christie ~ Yes, we've been keeping busy as I'm sure y'all have been since your hubby returned. ;o)
And, yes, I am loving the weather!
Yes, we are anticipating the arrival of Daddy. No definate date, yet, but a general idea (you know the Marine Corps). ;o) We surely look forward to his return!

Tracy ~ Thank you. My beloved is so sweet and thoughtful. Those flowers and the thought was such a blessing. ;o) It is always a nice surprise.
I love being busy at home, too.

Madeleine ~ We are thankful for the Lord's blessings, truly. ;o)

Kristi ~ lol... Ally loves her pillow, too! When we go on a trip, she always has to take it with her. ;o)

Hope y'all enjoy your weekend ~
