October Currently - {Better late than never...}& A Freebie!!!!!

October - love it!  Coffee, fires, candles & football games...sweatshirts and jeans make me happy too.

Ahhhhhh....October and its colors.  Michigan's landscape is so gorgeous right now.  I can't drive anywhere without noticing its beauty and feeling so blessed to be surrounded by it. 

This is what I see when I look out my window....ahhhh
Farley is celebrating October over at her blog with her Currently October.  Head on over to see what your favorite bloggers are up to!

Here's what's going on in my neck of the woods....

We have these chipmunks that come right up to our door, sit on the lawn furniture and just torment my doggy girl.  She goes from doorwall to doorwall from our family room to our kitchen just in a twit and a tither....just when she decides to call it quits, take a little rest on the couch she hears their chattering and just HAS to play their game. 

Who doesn't love fall decorations?  For some reason, I can't light a candle in the heat of the summer, but once the cooler weather approaches I have them burning every single day...along with a fire in the fireplace...I'm in Fall heaven!!!

Newsletter....yup, I got nothin' to say about that except...UGH.

I've been totally addicted to watching Brothers and Sisters under my blankets with my iPad these days on Netflix.  I'm still on the first season so I've got a ways to go.  I can't even stand thinking about it right now...I just want to close up the computer and get back to watching the next episode!!!!!

Isn't folding and putting away laundry for the birds?  My husband thinks he's helping me when he "does laundry".  Mind you, he only puts load after load into the washer...and then piles the clean stuff in baskets for me to fold and put away.  {I can't complain too much - he does all the cooking and grocery shopping....hey, stop throwing things at me...I know, I know - I'm really lucky that way!!!!!!} I didn't stay on top of the laundry last week so now I have MOUNTAINS to contend with today. 

I have SOOOOOO many Halloween favorites when it comes to books.....

Gotta love the groove and the beat of this one!!!!

And the rhyming in this one!!!!!
With Room on the Broom we do something called "Rounding up the Rhymes".  I walk into my closet as myself and come out of the closet as my alter ego "Country Mrs. W."...southern accent and all.  With my cowboy hat on, lasso {jump rope} in hand, ready to round up some of them there rhymes.

I record them on chart paper and they record them on their own sheet...I don't worry about rounding up every rhyme {there are a lot} but just enough to notice spelling patterns, that some words may rhyme and have the same spelling pattern, while others rhyme but the spelling pattern isn't the same.

Alrighty, ya'll - never you mind that I started this here post a whole darn week ago and just now posted it!  When will I feel on top of things? 

Toodles for now!
