Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

So... I am VERY excited about fall! I am seriously so tired of the dryness this summer and just summer activities as a whole. I feel as if this summer has been the busiest of my life....LITERALLY.
Starting with Conventions till now I have felt constantly on-the-go. Honestly I wouldn't have wanted to miss any of this summer, but I am glad it is ending. Fall and Winter sound so cozy and inviting!!
My days have been going by to fast and often I find I didn't get anything I planned to done. I am working Mondays-Thursdays and have been doing arrangements at least once a day. I am finally starting to fill orders now. (Eek!) Getting up to go in the mornings is harder now that it is dark when I first wake up, but I usually end each day feeling satisfied at what I did at work. (Unless I have a bad day.) For after work I wrote a schedule of what I can work on each day. Mondays: Sewing, Knitting or Crocheting...etc... Today is my blogging or "helping" day, either go to my sister's or helping out at home... Actually has been going good and I have told myself that it is fine to miss a day now and again since I tend to panic when I can't stick to a schedule.
As usual I tend to read a lot... I have been reading "A Tale of Two Cities" by: Charles Dickens which has been on my to-do list for awhile. I have watched an old movie of the story and LOVED it so really wanted to read the book. So far I have not been disappointed. I have cut back some on reading, but I can still stay up all night with a  book. I have so looked forward to cold evenings, curled up with a blanket, tea and a good book!
Weekends have become much loved since I started working more and every week I can hardly wait to leave work on Thursday. Friday is the cleaning day either at home or my sister's, but I enjoy it either way. Saturdays I am usually with family doing whatever it is we decide to do. Last weekend we hiked Silver Star Mountain and just had a good time. I got burnt and my face is still peeling, but it was worth it! Sundays I go to church and spend the rest of the day with family. (Yes I spends LOTS of time with family!) This last Sunday was spent playing outdoor games and feeling like a little girl again. LOVED IT! So, I really do have an extremely good life. I mean, what more could I truly ask for? (Not saying that everything is how I want it to be, but hey I have it pretty good!)
I have been doing a lot of trying new recipes, I am not sure what my Dad thought of my Onion Soup recipe, but I enjoyed it and the next night we ate it as a gravy with meatballs and mashed potatoes which was delicious. I am hoping to try out some new bakery next since fall just seems the time to do it. I love baking breads and sweets, but usually they go bad because there are only three of us in the house so I have refrained from baking too often. My Dad tends to lean towards meat, potatoes and veggie for supper, but he is a pretty good sport and tries new recipes. So I am now hoping to start trying more recipes, but it will mean planning ahead what I need because I don't usually have much time after work to plan supper. Often we eat quick meals like Thickened Peas, Carrots and Tuna on toast, or Hamburger Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and a veggie...just easy simple meals, but I hope to change that, at least a little.
Anyways, just a little update on what I have been doing. Hope my next post isn't to far in the future... :P
God's Peace,
Marita
