The weather has returned to the rightful place of a lovely crisp autumn.

A delightful, if small, Reader's Guild gathering to discuss Matthew Crawford's thought-provoking book Shop Class As Soulcraft. (and Lael's delicious homemade granola bars!)

Watching the worship team work with each other during Thursday night rehearsal.  They were teaching each other, encouraging each other, collaborating with each other.  It was beautiful to watch.

Watching a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old play with each other at a friend's house this morning, being reminded of the delightful, imaginative minds of children as they pretended to fly through the house with their blanket capes and cardboard masks.

Old-time monster movies on the classic movie channel tonight.  (currently watching The Revenge of Frankenstein.)

Plans for a quiet weekend, family coming Sunday night to hand out candy to the neighbors and watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.  Maybe, maybe I'll even do some baking this weekend.  

last year's rousing Halloween party with my parents (sorry, Mom!)
