I am in that "feeling unsettled" state of mind, I sure wish I didn't get like this, but I do when things are in disarray. I took alot of decor down today and packed it and now I just need some more tissue paper for the fragiles, packing is going good though. Hannah is doing much better, still in breathing treatments, but sounds alot better, she has gym. tonight and she is ready because she had to miss on Wed. Cameron had choir yesterday after school and he really likes it, they are just the most precious children, and don't want to move and I feel bad for them, but we're not moving far, they will adjust. We got their costumes, Cameron is going to be a scary dude with a "Hannibal" looking mask, a hatchet, and a black cape looking thing, no more Spiderman cutesy things anymore, and Hannah is going to be a Southern Belle, she loves to be "pretty" I wanted her to be a witch or a cat or something different than a princess, ballerina... but that is what she had her heart set on. I would like to go to a pumpkin patch tomorrow, we'll see what the day holds. The weather has been so nice, love that fall feeling! Have a great fall weekend! Stacy

oooh went the wind...

it sure is howling out there, the leaves are blowing, it's misting rain... it's blowing in fall! and how I love it, I could just run around outside like a maniac! My little Hannah banana is home today, her asthma is acting up so I kept her in today so we can do breathing treatments every 2 hours, she didn't want to stay home, she loves school, but her dad and I told her she needs to get better, so she has done some crafts, played a game, and now she is on the couch with a blanket and pillow watching tv. And I need to be doing something productive like packing, but, well, I'm not, shame on my lazy self. Last night for dinner I made salisbury steaks from some deer meat we had in the freezer and it was so good, I baked it in the oven instead of frying, and the best thing of all deer meat has no fat, we also had mashed potatoes and green beans, it was a good dinner, on Sunday I made an apple tart is was soooo yummy and easy, peasy! Here's the recipe:

1 can apple pie filling, add some cinnamon/sugar to it
take a pie crust and lay it flat on cookie sheet
dump the above mix in the middle of the dough & spread to within 2" of edges
pleat crust as needed
brush crust with egg white, & sprinkle with 1 tsp. sugar
Bake at 425 for 20 min.
Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!!!

I just wanted to drop in and say hello and happy Friday! Not too much going on here this weekend, we're going to tackle the attic, that ought to be fun :( the garbage man isn't going to like us on Mon. morning!! but it does feel good to clean things out. I started packing a few things yesterday, and if I haven't mentioned yet, we've found a rent house to live in until we find the house we want or until the house we already found and really, really want is released from the bank from foreclosure, it could take some time so we're going to just patiently wait! we look at it like we have accomplished the hard part of selling our house so we're looking at this an adventure!! anyway, so we're just doing the "moving thing" right now. And just so we can have some fun we're going to the movie to see "Wall-e" it started at the $ movie, so we're excited about that, and church on Sunday and the Cowboy game.

I baked some pumkin bread the other day and my gang has been gobbling it up! Jim really prefers banana, so maybe I'll make him some next week, it is feeling fallish finally!!! and it makes me want to go to a pumkin patch, we'll do that next weekend, we love to carve pumpkins and roast the seeds, so delish!!! I'll give you my recipe next week on that. Well, I need to run to Walmart and get some groceries, I think we'll have something pasta tonight... I'll figure it out as I stroll along! Have a fantastic weekend!!

fall is...
"...all about new school supplies, comfort casseroles and my favorite treat on a rainy afternoon, a homey apple dessert. To me fall means cozy routines and a warm kitchen...and I can't wait."

{Fun Friday}

Good morning! I am just sitting here having my coffee waiting for the roofers to get here, we're getting a whole new roof, it's going to get awful noisy around here today! I have been battling sinus/allergies this week and haven't really felt like chatting, but I am feeling better and am ready for the weekend, we are heading to East Texas for a family reunion on my dad's side and I am really looking forward to seeing family that I don't see that much. The kids get to play with their cousins, and everyone is sure to have a good time, and oh yeah... lots of good eating too :)
The weather has been good this week, not to hot but it could be a bit cooler in my opinion, I need fall!!!! the kids have been throwing around ideas on what they want to be for Halloween this year, they change their mind quite a bit! well, the roofers are here and I need to get started on my day!! Have a great weekend! S

It's October!!

My most favorite month! I love it, love it! It is my birthday month but that's not the main reason, I love the fall, what we actually have of it, but to me it signifies the start of the holiday season. I love the pumpkins, scarecrows, Halloween stuff, cozy food, the crisp colors, it really makes me happy. I already put my fall wreath on the door, and now I need to put some decor out in the house, that reminds me I need to have Jim get it out of the attic this evening, I won't put too much out this year since we are moving in exactly 4 weeks and I don't want to have too much stuff to box back up. I have a few things going on today, I have a couple coming to see me about childcare, I hope it works out, I need to get busy again! then I need to make a Walmart run, and Hannah has gym. at 4:00, so that's my plan, and I could really benefit from a nice walk this morning, so I think I'll take Kirby with me, all I have to do is go to the laundry room where his leash is and when I take the container down that it's in he goes crazy! Have a great day, it's October!!! S
