October 21, 2018: Birthdays and Reading Progress

I spoke to my aunt and uncle for a little while today. It’s their birthday, and each person is going through a significant change in life (one transitioning into a career change, the other readying for retirement). I offered my input as to where to seek information for a career shift. It’s understandably overwhelming, butContinue reading “October 21, 2018: Birthdays and Reading Progress”

October 20, 2018: Pumpkin Picking

Today is a ‘staying local’ Saturday: the only big thing that Andy and I did was go pumpkin picking at the buffalo farm in our area. I enjoy searching for pumpkins, and I’m so glad that there was one in the farm that was in great condition. I also made sure to bring my ittyContinue reading “October 20, 2018: Pumpkin Picking”

October 19, 2018: Literary Paths

I’m really liking ‘Daughters of the Lake’ so far. Wendy Webb loves going into a historical account of the characters involved in her plotlines. It’s very helpful for me, since I feel like it helps build tension for the pending drama that’s sure to take place. I enjoy exploring many book blogging sites. Since IContinue reading “October 19, 2018: Literary Paths”

October 18, 2018: Great Pumpkin

I watched ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’. It was exciting to catch the show after a busy day at work. I enjoy Halloween so much! This year it falls on the middle of the week, but there’s still a chance to wear a costume the weekend before the special holiday. I still have myContinue reading “October 18, 2018: Great Pumpkin”

October 17, 2018: Shifting to Autumn

When Autumn truly arrives, it’s memorable. It reminds you of this change the second you walk outside, and the wind cuts through the fabric of your clothes. You remember the change every evening, when the sun slips into the horizon a couple minutes earlier. It brings out special celebrations; people dressing up for Halloween, familiesContinue reading “October 17, 2018: Shifting to Autumn”

October 16, 2018: Snoopy in the Halloween Spirit

I enjoy taking photos of my Itty Bitty Peanuts collection. They hold a special place in my heart. Ever since I was a little girl I enjoyed everything about Peanuts. I owned many books on the series, and watched every show about the Peanuts characters whenever they came on television. When Hallmark came out withContinue reading “October 16, 2018: Snoopy in the Halloween Spirit”

October 15, 2018: Reading

Every evening I try to make a point to do some reading. I really want to reconnect with my literary side, so I’m working hard to maintain some amount of reading each day. I began reading ‘Daughters of the Lake’. I’m only on Chapter Four, but it’s a pretty good read so far. I’m hopefulContinue reading “October 15, 2018: Reading”

October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead

Today I relaxed and worked on my classroom pumpkin. At work we were each given a pumpkin to decorate by the end of the week, so since I’m always busy doing a million things at work, I took care of it here at home. I chose a sinple outline: a cat gazing up at aContinue reading “October 14, 2018: Pumpkins and Walking Dead”

October 13, 2018: Saturday in Piscataway

It’s been a busy Saturday. This morning Andy and I attended the second half of our Pre-Cana requirement. It was extremely early to be awake, and on a Saturday, but it covered topics that centered around growing the fruits of a happy marriage. I’m very happy that we attended. We then went to Hallmark, toContinue reading “October 13, 2018: Saturday in Piscataway”

October 12, 2018: Books and Friends

My current read is Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb. I came across the book on kindle reads, where you can receive one free book if you’re an Amazon Prime member. From what I gather about the story so far, it flips back and forth between the 19th century and the current period. I’mContinue reading “October 12, 2018: Books and Friends”
