October, a great month

 Hi all,
Today I'm going to do a little something different.

I long while ago I did an Autumn entry (you can check it out here) and I thought it high time to do another.  So I went back to The Simple Woman's Daybook and entered into her October Diary.  It's really a fun thing to do.

She has others there for the month of October, so after you're done reading mine, go check out the rest! 


Outside my my balcony where my geraniums are valiantly resisting the onset of autumn.

I am thinking...that having only one more year in France is a sad, sad thought.

I am thankful...that we live in the country and can open our windows and get fresh air and hear birds chirping.

In the kitchen...are my dishes from breakfast that I'm putting aside until a little later.

I am wearing...a red long sleeved shirt and my favorite pair of jeans. Barefoot.  I like barefeet in a house.

I am creating...painted porcelain-next up is a vase with irridescent paint.

I am my friend's house today to discuss everything in French.

I am wondering...why still after all my studies and having already lived here in France a year, I still struggle with the articles.

I am reading...a novel for a friend- proofreading if you will. Enjoying it immensely, I might add too!

I am finish a chapter of my work today.

I am looking forward to...getting a web-cam this weekend so that I can set up Skype for when Mr. K goes on a conference in Japan later this month.

I am to make use of my free-time and how to teach children that English can be fun.

Around the's still morning, so everything is quiet.

I am pondering...whether or not to include almonds in a breakfast bread.

A favorite quote for today... "As Rosemary is to the Spirit, so Lavender is to the Soul." ~ Anonymous

One of my favorite things... the subtle scent of lavender in the morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Go to the market for groceries, purchase some printer ink and a web cam, drink in some modern art on Sunday, and taste the exquisite decadence of cupcakes.

A peek into my day...arise at 6:45 or 7am, enjoy breakfast with Mr. K, do some correspondance (either handwritten or on the computer), visit friends, errands, cleaning, tutoring or preparing for it, writing, and dinner with Mr. K while relaxing in each other's company.

Outside on my balcony
Until next time!
