Maybe it is just me, but I think it is COLD! Is the weather feeling more like Fall or Winter where you are? The blessing challenge is going great so far. I have been blessed so much in return :) Have you joined in yet?
So one of my many goals this year is to walk\run 14 miles a week. This may not seem like much but it is for me. I have arthritis and a hip ...

Well, the blessing challenge has been going very well so far. I am trying to find little ways every day to be a blessing to someone. I have also determined each day this month to voice what I am thankful for. I have been using Facebook for this interaction. Whether we realize it or not every day holds special moments that we should be thankful for. Lots of times it is easy to be discouraged with everything we have going downhill in our lives but finding the beautiful moments in each day helps to lift our spirits. It does for me anyway. November has settled in very well here in the Smokies. We are having some very cool nights and sitting by the fire-pit is one of our favorite activities. The leaves put on a spectacular show this year. Now they are on the "falling" side of Fall. The girls and I have been taking some nature walks the past few weeks. I will be posting about those on my homeschool blog , Wisdom House Homeschool. I'm still not sure what our Thanksgiving plans will be this year. What are your plans for turkey day?

I was able to get in a small blessing today. I was immediately rewarded with a huge smile. I like being able to make people smile! I had to go to class this morning but was able to work outside in the flower bed ; clearing out so that it looks better for winter. Today was so beautiful after the stormy day we had yesterday. The sky was so blue it hurt to look at it. The colors on the trees this year are spectacular also. After I cleaned the flower bed , Roosie and I sat in the swing and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon til I had to go to work. When I got home tonight there was a barn owl calling in the woods by our house. I got really excited when my lil screech owl came back this summer, but having a barn owl in the neighborhood makes me really smile :). Well Happy November ! It is late and I have clinical in the morning. God bless and don't forget to join the Blessing Challenge over at http://livinglifewiththeloves.blogspot.com/
