Um...Happy Halloween?

I thought I had better finally do my Halloween post before December gets here!  Just a simple picture share. Nothing fancy.  I'll be back later with a post about the Fall Challenge.

A do-over and this week's peaceful home challenge

Yesterday I needed a mulligan.  A do-over.  A second chance.  Don't we all have days like that?  My weekend was hectic and ended on a bad note.  Monday morning began in chaos and so I decided I was taking the day off.  I did zero chores.  Zero exercise.  Zero anything that required effort.  And it felt good.  No one was neglected.  The world didn't stop turning.  Life moved on, regardless of the dirty dishes in the sink and the not so healthy no-cook dinner.  And today I woke up refreshed and ready to start again.  Today is my mulligan.  My second chance to start the week right.  It's Tuesday?  So what.  It's the start of a new week because yesterday just doesn't count.  Today I light my candle for peace and I take on the next task in the "Make Your Home a Haven" challenge.  Playing soft music in my home.  After reading this challenge I realized that I don't play music very often in my home, even though I love it.  Usually there are cartoons going or my son making engine sounds/train whistles while playing.  Even in those moments that are quiet it rarely occurs to me to play music, because I enjoy the quiet so much.  But I love to listen to my ipod while cleaning.  It makes the task more fun.  And this week I will purpose to play at least one quiet song during those peaceful moments in the day.

I am participating in the WLW November Challenge

Women Living Well November Challenge

Courtney at Women Living Well has been one of the people who inspire me to be a better wife and mother and keeper of my home.  She has posed a challenge for the month of November and I am trying to complete that challenge.  Go check it out.  It may help bring peace to your home.  Something I sorely need!

I've already gotten my first challenge underway.  Lighting a candle in your home every day and asking for peace.  Every Monday is a new challenge.  It's not too late to start!

 Just a quick picture post.  Halloween post coming soon.

Just a yummy looking burger I made.  Wish I could say I made the roll too but alas I did not.

Enjoying a quick breakfast on the back patio while the weather is still nice enough to play outside.  That is my favorite coffee mug.  It's purple with polka dots!  I love it!

A new magnet for the refrigerator.

And just so you ladies don't think my sink is always as shiny as the first post....this is my reality most of the time.  That lovely shiny sink is not an every day thing!  Although I did shine it tonight, so hopefully that will start my day off right tomorrow!
