13 Reasons I Love Fall

  1. Crisp air and deep blue sky.
  2. All kinds of soup, especially potato and pumpkin/squash.
  3. Cuddling on the couch in a pig-pile with kids, dog and feather duvet.
  4. Changing leaves.
  5. Sitting on the couch with my heating pad keeping me toasty warm (saves turning on the heat too soon :) )
  6. Hot drinks.
  7. Sweaters.
  8. Thanksgiving.
  9. The smell of roasting turkey ( so much so that I bought a little chicken, just big enough to feed our family, to stuff and cook this weekend :) )
  10. Stuffing, sweet potatoes and cranberries.
  11. Leftover turkey sandwiches with stuffing, cranberries and salt and pepper.
  12. Scented candles and fall decorations.
  13. Taking out the Christmas decorations as soon as Thanksgiving is over. (Pretty sure we're going to end up decorating on my birthday this year.)


If I Had a Million at Least

Today, Troy and I were talking about interns, and he said "We just need a compound!"

It's kind of a joke with us, I'm always saying Oasis Madrid needs a compound. But actually, I'm not totally kidding. I'm pretty open on how it could look (an apartment building, a big ole' house, etc.) but I would really love to live in community someday. It's going to be kind of hard to ever pull off in Spain, but you never know!


Jesse Tree

Whew! Last week was a stressful one, but I think we are mostly recovered now. I have not had much time to post, but just had to throw up a quick one about Jesse Tree's. I have been wanting to make one for the past several years, but craft type stuff is practically non-existent in Spain, so it just has not happened.

So I was thrilled this weekend to find cross-stitch patterns for the ornaments. I couldn't be happier! I found the info on Bloggy Giveaways. You should check it out! I'm hoping to get ours finished and then maybe I can make one or two more as gifts.

Hopefully I'll be able to get back to regular posting this week.
