raveled in fall and the magic of it all....
Listening to this song. My class is learning "Country Roads"  right now in music and it makes me terribly sappy and teary EVERY time I hear them singing it. They are so passionate about it and really tear it up. I am so very proud to watch them learn a song they will sing the rest of their lives and that I get to work with our L'il Mountaineers. Those rosey cheeked grubby handed cuties are more adorable than kittens. All their little quotes like "my shirt is upside up"(instead of inside out), or how they never quite get the days of the week right, how when you get all 70 of them outside and a squirrel mistakenly hops onto the playground they all lose their minds and chase it like a pack of dogs, or how when they ask me what I'm knitting and I reply with a huge sigh and say " I'm making a scarf for a giraffe." they believe me entirely and cheer me on in awe. Oh, those sweet sweet babies. 
Baking this bread.
It's the best recipe I've used for banana bread ever.

Missing these two awesome humans. A lot.

Knitting this cowl

Appreciating the antique jade charm Brian surprised me with on our anniversary weekend.

Things haven't been perfect lately. Our weeks have been stuffed with rushing to  Dr.s appointments across town , way too much work for Brian and I, really late last minute dinners, dirty dishes, dirty laundry, those lovely fallen leaves that keep getting tracked into our house, an outside cat that wants to be an inside cat, a dog that is really not happy about said cat, an average of  less than 5 hours of sleep a night, and the daunting promise of a weekend full of cleaning house and yard work. Hmmmm...Maybe tomorrow will be more about sleeping in late and snuggling that darling beardy husband, shuffling my feet in those rustled leaves and shaggy grass, a nice long phone call to my Mama, a visit to my little lamb of a niece,  and a lil more banana bread with a side of knitting....maybe.....
