Rainy Wednesday


I've been stuck in the house for the past four days, taking care of sick children. Today, everyone is whole and back at school and I am trying to play catch up with all of my chores. I'm kind of single-minded and have a hard time continuing my housekeeping routine when my children are needing my attention.

Today, it is cool and rainy. While driving to school to drop off lunch money I noticed the first few hints of color up on our nearby mountains. Within a couple of weeks the whole range will be bursting with rusts and golds.

Another Autumn is upon us.

I have a beef roast in the crock-pot...In between chores today, I will bake some cookies so that the children will return home to the warm scent of baking.

Have a wonderful day!
Love, Elizabeth (I'd include a picture but smaller hands ran off with my camera!)

Elizabeth, your home sounds wonderful and cozy today!! The house will smell yummy when everyone comes home ~ I love that! Elizabeth is about 18 years old. Nita has had such a terrible year as she has lost her husband after a terrible paralyzing accident at work. Too much heartache for this sweet soul. She was just beginning to turn a corner in her grief....I can only pray that Elizabeth is fine...thank you sweet friend, xxoo, Dawn
