Holiday Monday Tidbits

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might" (Ecclesiastes 9:10a)

Holiday Monday, the last holiday before fall programming swings into high gear.  The sun shone today but the air held a nippy edge to it, making me want to grab my sweater whenever I headed out the door.  It was a nice day at home today.  Everyone slept in and we had a wonderful brunch together.  I think I finally had a hit on the brunch menu as everyone said it was awesome and we should do it again.  Although, next time I think I would definately add a small fruit platter and a fresh coffee cake.  I can't wait for the next holiday to give it a try!

My focus for the day was the holiday trailer.  Dear hubby has mentioned a few times to me that he would like to get everything finished up on the trailer as soon as possible so we can shut off the heat, get the lines drained, etc and give it time to sit before the weather turns bad.  That means I need to get the inside all emptied out and cleaned.  I did well and only have a little bit left to do which I'm hoping I can get done tomorrow.  I know he will be happy to have that taken care of.  While I was working in the trailer he was busy putting together and putting up my front gate.  I have waited quite awhile for it to be put together and am absolutely thrilled its done.  I can't wait until Christmas time so I can put greenery, lights and of course, a bow on it. 

The rest of the day was spent doing a quick "swish-n-swipe" around the house, which means the bathroom, vacuumed the main floor and just general pick up. After the busyness of the day it was Family Movie Night with pizza and hot wings, something we try to do once a week as a family.

So, the last holiday of summer is coming to an end.  I pray that through this upcoming season I will have a joyous heart that is centered on my home, that I will be a faithful and diligent worker who will enthusiastically and continually makes 'home' happen.


  1. Your new front gate is adorable and looks perfect with your charming home! How nice to visit here!

    Sweet blessings,

  2. Sounds like you had a busy, productive day! I love your new front gate, it's so pretty. We used to have a family movie night on Friday nights as the girls were growing up...I sometimes miss those nights! They were fun, with pizza and a movie. :) Enjoyed your photos too.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
