Raking. I openly admit to enjoying manual labor. Moreover, there’s nothing quite so gratifying as being outside on a a lovely fall day raking leaves with your family. Just one more reason to love this season.
Operation Christmas Child. I did this with MOPS last year, so I decided we’d do it as a family this year. I thoroughly enjoyed this project, and I was happy about involving Abram this go ’round–even though he just wanted to play with everything. It’s never too early to start teaching a child to understand and value Christian charity.
This Stack of Books. “Nourishing Traditions,” a pile of Wendell Berry, the best of Louisa May Alcott, and “A Storm for Swords.” Anyone who knows me knows there just ain’t no way I’m making it through that stack of books in the next month. But maybe in the next 12+.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie. Spicy and creamy, with homemade crust, freshly whipped cream + nutmeg, and toasted walnuts. Holycowthat’sgood.
