leaf jumping

TLP Oct Template Challenge
template 10/13, by Amy Martin
remember September, by Amy Wolff
leaf peeper tag, by Laurie Ann

for today...

outside my window... it's partly cloudy, 48F
i am thinking... the property taxes are paid, and all of the bills are current; my self-imposed austerity program for 2013 has been difficult, but I'm happy to be debt-free
i am thankful for... Candy Corn
i am wearing... black jeans, a turtleneck sweater & my Birkies
i am going... to get the car inspected before the end of the month
i am currently reading... "Bull by the Horns," by Sheila Bair
i am hoping... that my first firewood delivery will arrive on time this Friday morning
on my mind... gas @ $3.49/gallon, milk @ $2.99/gallon, sugar @ $2.79/4 lb
pondering these words... "The only way to do great work is to love what you do, If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, Don't settle, As with all matters of the heart, you'll know it when you find it,"  
~ Steve Jobs ~
from the kitchen... peach mango salsa, canned and ready for holiday gifting; a T-bone steak with onion rings, baked potato, and sauteed fennel with garlic for dinner tonight
around the house... pumpkins, gourds & new firebricks in the woodstove
one of my favorite things... the last breath of summer, a few sunflowers, blooming nasturtiums & chinese lanterns
i'm creating... scrapbooking pages, now that I've gotten my internet re-connected *YAY*
a few plans for the week... grocery shopping, stacking wood, and Digital Scrapbooking Day 11/1 :)

from my lens:
saw these lil' ghosts on a trip to the chiropractor
in Ekland, Pennsylvania
Happy Halloween
