Monday Mercies: 10.24.11

Despite a cranky hip and a painful morning, there are no shortage of Monday Mercies today:

beautiful fall sunshine streaming in
leaves swirling down
this song by owl city. its intro feels like possibility
baking loaves of pumpkin bread
and a batch of peanut butter cookies
time with my girls
a phone chat with a friend
a new book in the mail
the aroma of cinnamon and cloves wafting from the oven

What are your Monday Mercies?


  1. Pumpkin bread and peanut butter cookies- yum. And please, please tell me your thoughts on L.L.'s new book when you get through it some. I don't know why, but this book intimidates me for some reason! I want to read it, and I don't at the same time... not sure what that's all about.

    Been enjoying your fb posts with all the cute things your girls say. Yes, even with cranky hips and swollen hands and a myriad of health issues, we are so blessed Jennifer.

  2. Oh, I can't wait to dive into the book. I'll let you know what I think.

    Right there with you on swollen hands; I'm anxiously awaiting my first pair of arthritis compression gloves to arrive.

  3. Enjoyed your list today! Phone time with a friend made my list today, too. :) I would love to have had a whiff of the wonderful scents at your house today!

  4. Fingernails and toenails to protect digits
    Comforting warmth of Indian Summer
    Five last tomatoes beginning to blush orange
    Central heating
    Boy whispering prayers in the night
    Ugly comfortable thick sweat pants
    Cold meds to make illness more endurable
    Ability to cough to clear my lungs
    Hoodie sweaters to add or subtract as needed

  5. Oh my, that pumpkin bread looks delish!! Recipe, please. :)

    Have a great weekend, friend.
