Though I hated to do it, this morning was spent doing a little school work. We are right where we should be with our lessons, but with a few day trips, visitors, and Thanksgiving coming up, I don't want to fall behind. The children were troopers about it, though, and we were finished relatively quickly.
I made pancakes and bacon this morning for breakfast, which we ate by candlelight. It has been gray all day, with off-and-on rain showers. We used the last of our dear little pumpkin candle and now I am thinking about what I should replace it with. I have a nice little collection of plain beeswax tapers and votives that will look lovely on the table this time of year. My mother sent me a text the other day to tell me that she was ordering my favorite Christmas candle (Balsam) for us as an early gift! I prefer to use pure beeswax candles all year long except Christmastime... then it just has to be a Christmas tree scented one!
Tomorrow is our Saint Michael's Day party at church. All of the parents bring an activity or two for the children to enjoy and so we bought apples for bobbing and a pinata for smashing. I also have a guessing game and coloring pages to print. It should be a fun day!
