Random Sunday......

Just some randomness on a Sunday morning:

* Feeling totally grateful for my amazing family and my wonderful true friends!
* It is raining today, which usually I am not a big fan of, but I am kind of liking it today.
* We visited the orchard yesterday and bought our first just-picked MacIntosh apples and hot cider donuts of the season...true fall goodness!
* Left work early on Friday and came home resolved to finish what I started in my craft room...and I did! Oh it is by no means what I would consider clean and it is certainly not organized, but it is tidy. And things are put away. And my table is CLEAR! (And I have come to accept the fact that the only way that room will ever be truly clean and organized is if I empty it out completely and start from scratch).
* Long phone conversations with far-flung friends is good for the soul.
* A soft, cuddly Beagle snuggled against your leg means all is right with the world! :-)
* Looking forward to this coming Friday when Mom and I, and Angela and Tracy and Jeanne go to Cool Crops in NH for the weekend (see the link in my sidebar).
* And the weekend after that is when the "other" man in my life arrives in town! ;-)
* I ask myself this almost every weekend, but, how in the hell do two people manage to create so much laundry?!?!
* So if you haven't guessed my Sunday will be filled with doing laundry! And creating! And luckily the two rooms are right across the hall from each other.
* Gotta watch my beloved Patriots today...minus Tom Brady. :-( Out for the season. I still can't believe it. It was a sad day in Patriots nation when that was announced....
* Another note on gratitude: I have said this before and will continue to say it again and again and to constantly give thanks for it...I am so incredibly blessed to have the rich full life I have!
* I can't believe how much a kitchen/great room remodel can transform a home! Mom and Dad's home is AMAZING!!! And I can't believe it is the same house I grew up in!!!
* OK, I really am enjoying watching and listening to the rain but oooh boy does the dampness wreak havoc on my sinuses! Ouch!
* Is randomness a word? It should be.
* Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks! Always a sure sign of fall! What is not fun is how long it takes to order one the way I want it! I will have a grande nonfat no whip extra hot pumpkin spice latte. Ordering coffee used to be so simple......
* Country Home magazine and Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine have some fabulous fall covers this month! And the articles look good, too!
* This list really is all kinds of randomness, huh?!
* I got stuff to make and laundry to do....have a great day!!!

Tams, I got the stamp at Absolutely Everything (of course). It is made by Inkadinkado.

And you would be very proud to know that once I was done with this entry this morning I went straight to my craft room and have been here ever since!!! And it is after 5PM here now!!!

I loved spending the day that way. I was so comfy and the weather was perfect for it!!

Can't wait to hear about what you created. You are so talented!!
