What’s going on?

Fall is in full swing around here and I love love love it. October is easily my busiest month of the year, and this year has been no exception. With all the busy-ness, I wanted to pop in here and give a quick glimpse of what’s going on around here.

I’m sending out fabrics to my quilting bee ladies today (it’s my month! Yay!)

Sewing clothes for a dirty, well-loved monkey. Miss Lily picked out the fabric and the Christmas ribbon. :)

Admiring the leaves and taking long deep breaths of the (awesome) autumn air.

Watching the last soccer games of the season, and cheering on our favorite football teams.

Putting up my Halloween bunting (print yours here), decorations, and finishing up my table runner.

Getting my studio cleaned and put together.

Sewing, and sewing, and sewing for market, and getting my posts ready for the Blogger’s Bar Hop tomorrow and my turn on the Sweet Celebrations tour on Thursday (be sure to come back!) Schedules are here.

In the midst of all the things going on, I’m really trying to focus and be balanced. It’s easy for me to get caught up in the crazy and neglect that this time of year is my very favorite of all. We’re going to the little old man’s pumpkin stand tonight for Family Night to choose out Jack O’Lantern pumpkins, and we’re having Breakfast with a Witch on Thursday. I’m also trying to spend more time reading scriptures and having some quiet time for prayer and grounding before my day gets underway. Finally, a friend and I are getting up before the sun to exercise. I’ll be tired, but it’s time to get more movement into my schedule. If not now, when?

What’s going on with you? Is this your favorite time of year? Any suggestions (or encouragement) for my early morning exercise? (Trust me, I need it!)

  1. Good job on getting up early and exercising. John wants me to join you guys. You are doing awesome! Good job!

  2. Morning exercise it the best! I love to cross it off the list for the day. I have been trying to get it done as soon as the kids get on the bus. I find that it gives me energy during the day. Otherwise, it has to cut in to my sewing time in the afternoon.

    1. Thanks Johanna–I always feel better when I do it, but it’s hard to get back on the bandwagon, you know? xoxo

  3. Cleaning and dejunking the bedroom/sewing room. It’ll be awesome…soon. Then I’ll sew for our girl. :}
    Wish I could come too. But I’m afraid I’d need a shopping cart, or a stroller, or a…walker. HAAAAaa! I’m working on the knee.

  4. Busy quilting away over here trying to make some table runners for the Holidays and getting stuff ready for a local craft show here in town. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year as well. I even love the smell that is in the air. I wish I could work out in the morning, I first have to get my baby girl to sleep through the night! I was up again at 4am this morning. Well good luck with the working out. It really is a great start to the day!
