On the way back home she happened to notice someone selling puppies on the square. I let her stop even though she didn't ask and it made her so excited because normally we would have just drove on, but I knew this is something that would make a memory.
Once Tim got back home we all started working on different things in the house. He was working on cutting boards to finish a wall and the girls and I were waxing the cabinet doors. I am using chalk paint and wax by DecoArt to paint and finish the cabinets. I will put a varnish on them when we are finished to make them easy to clean.
Today was Sunday and we normally all go to church , but Anastasia was sick with a headache and I was afraid it would turn into a migraine so I made her stay in bed and Tim and Shae went to church.
It was a gray, cold and rainy day so I thought it was a good day to try to organize my tea collection. I am getting a pretty large collection and I love all the choices that I have now. I try to add a couple of boxes a week because I'm am trying to break the soda habit and I just can't drink plain water all day. It is working and my favorite one is Good Earth's Sweet and Spicy Green Tea. They have a black tea with the same name and I haven't tried it yet but I really love the green tea one. It is hard to find and I only have one store that I can get it from. I need to start ordering it online so I can keep in on hand. I drink it every morning instead of coffee.

December 2, was a super crazy busy day and I am working through the book Loving my Actual Life by Alexandra Kuykendall this month and really focusing on my family and making sure that I remember that every single day really is a gift.
This months focus is breaking free from the noise and being present in the moment.
I will be trying to cut back on Social Media and other distractions that add to the noise of my everyday life. I really hope that you would read it along with me.
It started off with picking up pecans at the farm, and It ended up being a lot of running around today. I had groceries, farm business, hobby lobby, and lunch with my husband (this never happens). The feed store and happy mail.

It has gotten colder here in Georgia, and I am feeling like hibernating. I only want to curl up with my blanket and sit in front of the heater and grab my knitting and a good book. (Yes I knit and read at the same time.)
My local library is one of the best. I love that I can find so many new books. I always keep a good stack in the living room.

This time of the year I always set up a hot tea station. This year is no different even thought we are living in a camper this year as our house is still I being built. I need to add some hot chocolate to the mix as well as my girls love hot chocolate so it has to be included.
Candles are also my favorite thing to have around. I love how just the scent can add a bit of warmth to the room. This is one a mango candle that smells so good.
This week on one of my many trips to our local library ( the only way I can get online) I found a book that is have been really wanting to read on the book sale rack. The magazines were also in the sale so I was able to get 4 back issues of Knitting Magazine and the book for only $2. I have found so much useful information in the magazines and the book is great. I am trying to reduce the amount of processed foods from our diet, so I really need some help with ideas to add better things in that are really good for us and our overall well being. The Daniel Plan is such a highly recommend book from some of my friends that I felt I just had to give it a try.
I am working on a few knitting projects right now and I have way too many on the needles right now. I have been trying to be good and not have more than one on at a time but I have three things on the needles right now and I must really try to get a couple of them completed. This is the latest one that I am working on. It is a pair of fingerless gloves that I am making as a present for Christmas.
I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far and I will keep you posted on my progress with my projects.

I can't believe that it is November already. This year has really flown by. It is still warm in the afternoons but it is cool in the mornings and evenings.
The local coffee shop has become one of my favorite places. They have the best dark roast coffee. If you had told me this time last year I would be drinking dark roast I would have laughed. I always thought it would be bitter and taste burned, but I do have to say it is rich and smooth and not at all bitter or burnt tasting. They have a wonderful berry muffin that is so full of fruit it just falls apart in your mouth.
I am enjoying walking and exploring the park in my little town. The cooler temps have really made me want to explore and enjoy the outside. This bench has really been a fun place to just go and sit to knit or read a good book. I have to get a bench for our farm. I love it.

There is a new shawl pattern in my Ravelry Shop. I am so excited to debut the Forsyth Shawl.
