It's 3:28 p.m.

I should be thinking about dinner.
Or be cleaning up the mess that is my house. 
Or switching the laundry. 
Or raking leaves.

Instead, I'm sitting on the patio.
It's a perfect autumn day. 
Somewhere in the seventies. 
Sun shinning though the trees.

I've tricked the Elijah and Nay into thinking it's a game to put leaves into a pile.
Amelia is sleeping.
Caleb should be home from work soon....ish.
And I'm wishing that I wasn't sick.

I'm grateful that I was well enough to take care of the kids today.
Happy that they are feeling a little better.
Loving the time I had to read my bible.
Thankful it's fall.

Fall is my favorite. The weather is lovely here too. What a nice way to spend the afternoon.

I'm sorry you are sick! I'll be praying.
