This Week

*I'm finishing unpacking and washing loads of laundry. There is lots to play catch up on after four days away!

*So over the Presidential debates, Facebook posts, and all the bashing. Will be so glad once November 6th has passed. Both sides need to stop bashing one another and stick to the facts of their own agenda.

*Drinking lots of tea, lighting candles which bring the scents of Autumn into the home, and looking forward to the crock pot full of chili this evening. Fall has arrived (along with gloomy and soggy conditions!).

*Getting ready to start a part-time job this weekend. Extra money for winter and a chance to get out of the house some evenings during the LONG cold winter months? Sign me up, please!

*Dealing with excited kids who are itching to go to the Pumpkin Patch this weekend. We have a fun event planned with Jacob's Dance Marathon group there on Sunday.

*Getting back into crafting and planning to sign up for a knitting class here in town.

*Reading a lot recently. The most recent books being Relentless by Dean Koonz and Handbags and Homicide by Dorothy Howell.

*Smelling yummy after visiting the LUSH store in Mall of America. Their bubble bombs are seriously the bomb (Dorothy is a fun one!). Loving the soap samples I bought. Absolutely love the coconut shampoo bar - it does wonders for my curly hair! Hubby loves their solid deodorant bar (though it's kinda messy).

*Finding some fun new blogs. What are some of your favorites?
