Church Search, Weather, Art, Holiday Prep, and Planning

Well, this week has mostly been one of bare minimums. ;) I don’t feel like I’ve done very much this week beyond the things I really needed to do either in the home or for the blog.

Last Sunday we visited another church last Sunday. The people were so kind and welcoming . . . all 7 cars of them. There were less than 25 people there . . . it felt like we’d just gone to a nursing home for a meeting . . . they were mostly in their 70s and 80s. The fiddle player was 85 and the pianist was about 82. :)

They were incredibly nice. They gave each of us a small gift before we left. They really were very welcoming! However, Tiffany is 23 and is looking for a spouse and there are absolutely ZERO options there. So obviously, that will not be the church we settle in for now. :)

There’s another church not too far away that we are considering visiting but we’ve had the durnedest time getting service times. When we were in service Sunday they finally returned Michael’s call asking for the service times. Thankfully his phone was on silent. :)


Thankfully the weather has gotten the memo that it is now autumn and the temperatures are coming down. We’ve still gotten some hot days but most are nice with temps only high in the 70s. :)

Since the weather is cooling off and it is October, I am now eager to get my fall decorations up. I’m also glad to start eating some soups. I don’t know about you but I have a hard time eating soup if I have to have a fan on. :D


Today is October 2nd which means it is the second day of Inktober. For me this simply is a time to focus on art and try to do some art every day this month. It also means, it is probably going to be using Zentangle or Zentangle-like patterns. I’ll be sharing my art on Wednesdays but I may also be sharing on Instagram and/or facebook.

I got my bullet journal ready for fall too. September was a very bad month for productivity and my bullet journal is proof. ;) There is all of 2 or 3 pages of September and that includes my September planning page. It was pretty pitiful. :(

I’m also looking forward to doing another Bob Ross painting with Tiffany this month. Hopefully we can get two done.

Holiday Prep

October is our big push for getting Christmas presents purchased. Of course this means that we have to get our Christmas lists made. I’m a good example and got mine done. But Tiffany was the first one to get her list done. Others are slowly getting theirs done but as you might imagine, the guys in the family are the slowest to do so. :D.

Website Planning

I’m beginning to think about next year. I’d love to say that I’m going to work on updating this website but realistically it isn’t going to happen until after the holidays and the first of the year. But it is something I’m feeling a desire to push through and get accomplished. ;) So hopefully, I’ll be motivated to do it in the new year.

I’m going to run for today. I hope you have a great weekend.

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº
