31 Days of Savoring: Monday Muddle



How was everyone's weekend?  I can't believe how quickly October flew by.  We just got out pumpkins carved a few days ago and I've been running around today laying out costumes.  Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.  

Our weekend was fun. The local library hosted a "Day of Literacy" with several agencies in town.  The kids got to play games and make crafts all centered around literacy and their favorite characters.  Plus we got to come home with books.  I love it.  A local gym sponsored the "Book Walk."  When the music stopped, an activity (sit-ups, push-ups, squats, etc) was pulled from the hat.  Everyone did that activity and if your child was on the circle, they got to pick out a new book. My kids are all about new books so this was a highlight for them as well.  

Yesterday was my birthday.  So we went out to dinner with my mom and grandma and picked up a Marie Callendar's pie.  Double Cream Blueberry... Yummy!  It's pie month at Marie Callendar's (ends tonight) and it was almost too hard to choose.  We might have to go back after Trick or Treating tonight.

October was full of it's own ups and downs.  Had I known where this month would take me, I wouldn't have taken on the 31 Days challenge.  My uncle ended up in the hospital on the 5th and hasn't come out yet.  We've been hosting my mom and grandma while they've been taking care of him.  And our house has seen a huge influx of kids as we've been blessed to help several families in our community.  All in all, I'm a little tired.  But with everything's that's happened (and this challenge), I've been forced, and blessed, to SAVOR the days.
