Days lately have been:

early morning coffee
beginning before sunrise.

 first light
full of changing light.

beginning with warm oatmeal.

 after breakfast
full of washing dishes by hand since the dishwasher is broken.

consumed with laundry.

spent playing with Percy.

 blondies in the making
used for an excuse to make homemade blondies one too many times.

 how to eat blondies
spent eating one too many blondies.  Whole.

 quiet morning
packed with deep house cleaning and our minds entertaining selling this place of ours.

tiny pinecones
looking more like fall.

 a little fall decorating has begun
spent digging out our fall decorations and putting a few out.

full of never ending doggy naps.

setting up the boys' 
spent preparing lessons.

math time
and doing school work.

A new friend
overflowing with excitement about this little guy that we were able to save from the dog.  Just a little longer and our squirrely friend can be released.

squirrel treat
spent making treats for the squirrel and birds.

he loves it
The squirrel approves!

reading lessons
lazy-ish, as we do some lessons right on the bed.

pizza night
lazy-ish the other night as well when we ordered pizza to go.  The best part was being informed that my homemade pizza was "so much better than this stuff!"

i love fall
beginning to show signs of fall artwork.

little bird

and watching the girls put on shows for us in their pet-packed room.

What a fun post! Your boys are getting SO big. Turning into men very quickly. Christopher is doing the same, here.
Love the picture of your girlie with her bird. Looks like lots of fun. Your squirrel rescue is something that would happen in our family. The children have enjoyed "helping" so many animals over the years.
Christopher is on that exact same math lesson right now. Kind of ironic, isn't it?
I enjoyed seeing your "around the house" pictures. So warm and cozy and it looks as if you have been simplifying. It looks so clean - something I've been longing for lately as the clutter builds again around here.
Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
Love, Amy

My mother never used an automatic dishwasher because she said she liked washing them by hand.
She would delicately wash every dish as she watched out the kitchen window at the birds. I think it was sort of meditative for her.
