We are so enjoying these fall days. The kids are outside a lot because the weather is so nice. We have actually had a cooler fall this year, but I am enjoying it very much. We made our first chili of the fall and it turned out pretty good. Tess said not quite spicy enough so I will have to see about a few changes this week when we make it again.

We are still working on a few projects around the house. Our utility room had to trump Bethany’s and Tess’s bedroom as it had a leak at the door and we had to replace some flooring. That was definitely more important than painting a bedroom as it was going to cause some problems if not done soon. Joey actually did all the work and will be back tomorrow to put down a new floor. Thank goodness, as we haven’t had a washer or dryer for several days and we do laundry every single day.

Next we will get the girls’ bedroom painted and then the carpet out and a new floor, along with curtains, new beds and probably a new bookcase. I really want this done soon and I’m hoping it can be done within another couple of weeks. Bethany and Tess are already talking about how they want to decorate for Christmas – mostly, whether they want a tree with clear lights this year or multicolored. It may sound like they are really planning too early, but in reality it is almost November. And planning is a lot of the fun.

    So nice to hear that Joey is doing well! It sounds like your house is very busy right now. I agree with the girls, it’s never to early to start Christmas planning. I’m looking forward to your Countdown to Christmas, if you do it this year!

    • We are actually a little busier than I like as I need all our projects done before Thanksgiving and preferably by the first week of November. We have actually started buying a few things for Christmas- mainly lights and wrapping things. Just want to be ready when the time comes to decorate.
