End of Summer Daybook

A photo thought... 



Outside my window...



It is like living inside a chimney.  There is a nearby wildfire and the smoke has been getting thicker all morning.  Even inside the house it smells like my kids are roasting marshmallows in the next room.  Today will be indoors all day so I am sure I will get caught up on Transformers Prime and Spider man cartoons.  :)


I am wearing... 
Cut-off jean shorts and an $8.00 "boyfriend" tee-shirt from Target. I love it because it is fitted and long without being clingy. 


I am thinking...
Of moving all my recipes from Bake Me Away to this blog.  I don't post that many recipes so one every week or two in this space seems easier to manage.
Any thoughts?



I am hearing...
The pop-up player on this blog - specifically this song: 
Give Me Jesus by Fernando Ortega. 


I am thankful for...
The most wonderful, slowed down summer we have ever had.  I am so convinced that less "busyness" is so much more for our family.
 

Around the house...
School supplies are taking over our dining room table.  I actually created a spreadsheet to figure out all the items I needed to buy for three separate children.






I am praying for...
Claudia.  She is in dire need of all our prayers.  Please lift her up for healing.
The grieving families of the SEALs we have lost.  So many young  widows and children whose fathers will never come home.


I am reading...
Honestly, not much.  Mostly going through cookbooks and my pulled from magazines recipe file to put together the next month's menu plan.

One of my favorites is a new cookbook I am so excited to start using particularly for the soup recipes.  It is nearly crock pot season!




I am creating...
New schedules for back to school.  Adapting this schedule to upcoming soccer practices and school days.


Fall monthly menus.  I have gathered 20 new soup recipes I will be making for Sunday Soup Nights.



God is leading me...
In how to embrace new technologies with my family in a Christian way.



In the kitchen...
Monday :  Leftover grilled pork tenderloin and homemade refried beans
Tuesday:   Baked Rigatoni and steamed green beans
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Grilled chicken fajitas with caramelized onions
Friday:  Chicken fajita salads
Saturday:  Pizza night - hopefully from scratch
Sunday: Soup of some kind.  


In the garden...
Wilting impatiens, crisping hydrangea leaves, yellowing chives but my petunias are thriving.  Gotta love those hardy bloomers!

One of my favorite things... 
Apple season!  My son has begged me for days to make an apple pie so I made two yesterday.  They. are. completely. gone.  (I only had one piece!)  It fills me with a special pleasure to please my hungry boys' tummies so well.
