Rain. It's coming, inching it's way ever so slowly.
I am thankful for ~
* For the Guardian Angel who watched over Miss Clementine when she had her accident last Saturday afternoon.
* For our network of A-MA-ZING friends.
* Our son!! November is National Adoption Month.
* Our son's birth mother and ALL birth mothers, they are so courageous.
From the school room ~
* Stan and Mabel are sharing the same science program, (Apologia, Land Animals of the Sixth Day). They had a fun experiment last Friday...dissecting an owl pellet, (indigestible parts of their prey).
(Those are the remains of a mouse. They are pointing to the skull.)
* This is mid term week of Quarter 2. Time is flying!!

From the kitchen ~
I tried a new recipe on Sunday.
Butterscotch Molten Cake with pecan ice cream a la mode.
I want to tweak the recipe a bit before I post it. My husband liked it, but I think I would have liked a chocolate molten cake better. Now, that sounds yummier to me ;)
David prepared Sunday dinner since I hadn't had a nap from the excitement of the night before.
He made Stuffed Jumbo Shells, (recipe here), salad, and rolls.
What I am reading ~
Still looking. I haven't had much of a chance to look. Last week was filled to the brim with hyper active kids, both at home and at Confirmation class.
What I am praying for ~
* Birth mothers
* Adoptive families
* Children still waiting to be adopted
* Unborn babies
* For the souls in purgatory
Around my house ~
Big sister Sally soaked the ballerina dress after Miss Clementine's accident. When we got home from the ER, it was hung up and drying nicely. She was able to get all the blood out!!
Someone is feeling MUCH better!
David made a fire for our Sunday night family rosary. It was a beautiful evening to remember the Feast of All Souls.
I am thinking about ~
A new purse.
I would love to get a leather purse made of great quality that will last forever. I'm looking for a classic look, a style that never goes out of style. And a neutral color.
I have the hardest time shopping for them because I find them either too big or too small, slipping off the shoulder or not long enough. I see some on Amazon, but I would like to see and feel the measurements before purchasing.
When I have found one in a store, the price tag is shocking. I refuse to pay more than a certain price because I think it ends up being extremely materialistic at that point. On the realistic end...I know a good quality leather purse can be purchased for $75-$125.
Suggestions on leather brands?
Coming down the pike this week ~
* Miss Sally's baptism birthday on Thursday
* Physical Therapy for a daughter on Thursday
* Miss Clementine's follow up to the pediatrician on Friday
* Troopers of St. George family field day on Saturday
* David's birthday on Sunday
A final photo to share ~
I love this boy!
Have a great week!
