September Daybook


Outside my window... I can see the now clean pea field across the road from our house. Harvest time has started here on the farm and the peas were first to be combined.  It will be a very busy month or more here to get crops all off.  

I am thankful....for so many things!  Lately, I've realized afresh, truly how much I have to be thankful for! God is so good to me! 

In the kitchen.....I have a few boxes of fresh vegetables from the neighbors garden, sweet corn, cucumbers, zucchini, and my favorite: tomatoes!  :) I love slicing the tomatoes and eating them with salt, or putting olive oil, oregano, a little vinegar on them for a yummy treat. :) Store bought tomatoes can't even come close to how good homegrown ones are! 

I am wearing... A black skirt, and a multi color shirt of white, black, aqua, and blue.  Even though it's not maternity, it it works great as one because it is has stretch. :) I actually wish I could find more of them in different colors;  yes, it's that comfortable. :) 

I am going... to head to the kitchen as soon as I post this and start supper prep. I'm doing something simple and easy tonight: smokies, chips and cookies; easy to take to the field, and the biggest bonus?it leaves me with no dishes after the workers are done eating. :) 

I am wondering.... If Lydia is going to take off walking before her birthday next month. The most she's walked so far is around five unassisted steps in a row, she also will walk around the house using a push toy for support.  She just cut her forth tooth, (finally!) and has really started to act older lately. 

I am reading... Trim Healthy Mama, by Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett.   I haven't gotten very far into it yet, (with three little ones it's tough at times to get much quality reading done), but what I have read and skimmed through,  I've enjoyed and found helpful and interesting! :) 

I am hoping....We will have a nice warm fall and winter will take its time getting here! 

I am looking forward to...Having our newest baby arrive! I'm starting to feel big as an elephant and I'm only 31 weeks, lol   :).  I'm also very excited that my two sisters will be coming (LW) to help out and visit around the time of the birth. 

I am pondering....How great and good God is to us each and every day. 

One of my favorite things... Sitting outside watching the children play!  Usually every morning after breakfast and clean up, we will head out for an hour or more of good play time.  I also enjoy going for a walk after I get supper made for the harvest crew and everything is pretty much taken care of for the evening. 

A few plans for the rest of the week....I went shopping yesterday so that is taken care of for awhile hopefully.  I have a midwife appointment on Thursday, but I may reschedule, I'm not sure yet. 

A peek into my day.....

                                      Abby and Willy at their birthday party on the 18th :)
