Monday’s Motivation

Autumn contentment 9-27-15

Have you started nestling into fall yet?  I’m enjoying the sunny yet fallish days we’ve been having here in the northwest!!

For me, summer was a VERY busy season this year.  I was gone a lot.  Good busy but a bit to busy.  Today I did some much needed cleaning and began my fall decorating.  I lite my “Pumpkin Wreath” scented candle and got in the fall spirit!  I really like this quote.  It sums up that redirection to home that fall brings.  When the weather causes us to slow down a bit.  I hope you get a chance to slow down, focus a little on your home.  Add a few Autumn accents, light a candle, get that flannel backed quilt out to cuddle with on chilly evenings ….. whatever makes fall special to you.

Hmmm, some hot apple cider sounds good about now.

Happy Fall everyone!

Welcome October!

Sorry about the lack of Monday’s Motivation this week.  My computer got a virus that completely shut it down.  My son rebuilt it and I’m finally up and running again.  I’m amazed at how crippled I feel when my computer’s down.  I think mostly because the majority of my business is done on the computer and I know people are waiting or I may be missing something.  Just a few issues to finish working out and I’ll breathe a sigh of relief.

 

love october

What does October mean to you?  cooler weather, pumpkins, reading by the fire ……….

I always enjoy the change of seasons.  When it first changes.  It’s cooler, I do a little decorating, bringing out my fall quilts and a few fabric pumpkins.  Add a few mums to the yard.  Here in Oregon we often have a really nice October – cooler but still some sunny days, beautiful colors – orange, gold, red ……. this year September roared out with a big storm but that beautiful fall sun will be returning.

I hope you have a fantastic October!  It’s a great time to gather with friends over a pot of soup, to cheer for a football game, or visit the pumpkin patch.

Don’t eat to many candy corns!!

Hello Monday!

Monday’s….. to me they feel a lot like a mini New Years Day.  How you say?  They feel like a new beginning.  I tend to clean up and organize after the weekend.  Think ahead to my schedule and what I need to accomplish.

To Ella this Monday meant a new toy!
Sorry it’s a bit blurry.

Yesterday at church our new pastors sermon was on GRACE.  It made me think……..  who might I encounter this week that needs grace.  Do I judge or make assumptions that get in the way of grace?  I don’t know what someone may be going through or what circumstances caused them to be where they are.  I know I’m in a place in my life that I never expected to be.  I’m so thankful for the grace that God has extended to me.  I hope I can do the same this week for those that cross my path.

Besides being mindful of practicing grace this week I have a few samples to make of my new Snap -n- Go pattern that will be heading to Quilt Market at the end of the month.  I have 2 classes this week and a Sleep in Your Own Bed Retreat.  A project I’m working on for a Craft Faire my quilt group at church is participating in ………….. I guess you don’t need the whole list!!  Oh, and if you were wondering – NO, I never get to check off the whole list but that’s OK.  Most things will carry over.  :-)

We’ve had an amazing start to fall in the Pacific Northwest!  We had no measurable rain for 3 months!  Well that’s all changed this past weekend.  Fall is here, along with the rain that we are so famous for.  I’m leaving you with a few pictures of flowers I took recently in the garden.  They are now being pummeled.  Sigh……
