Ten on Tuesday: September 18th, 2012

Today's Ten on Tuesday is Ten things you like to do over the weekend!

Here we go!

1. Sleep in. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning fully rested, and aware that you don't actually have to get up right away.

2. Read. Yes, I'm a bookworm.

3. Watch a movie. Nothing better than kicking back and relaxing!

4. Craft. Be it sewing, knitting, cross-stitching, embroidery, drawing, painting...whatever.

5. Exercise. I can actually exercise in the morning on the weekends, when I have far more energy and feel like I can accomplish so much more.

6. Spend time with family/friends. I don't think that requires any explanation.

7. Houseclean. A dirty house bothers me, but I rarely have time to clean during the week. I use weekends as my 'catch up' time.

8. Plan. I am a planning freak, and I'm not afraid to admit it! I like to know what my plans are at least two weeks in advance.

9. Garden. The weekends are really the only time I have to get out in the garden. That said, I won't be in town this weekend so I am going to plant my tulips tonight :)

10. Get ahead. Grocery shop. Plan meals. Wash laundry. Cook freezer meals. Whatever it takes to get ahead for the next week, so that I have a little bit less to do in the evenings.

Ten on Tuesday - September 4th, 2012

I can't believe it's September already. That is a mantra that has been repeating itself in my head all weekend and today. Fitting, as today's topic is Ten Things You Love About September. Here we go!

1. The leaves turning colours

2. The 'back to school' excitement in the air (especially now that I'm not one of the ones going back to school!)

3. The buzz of activity as the city wakes up after a long summer vacation.

4. The fresh produce that comes from a summer of hard work in the garden (courtesy of my mom!)

5. Thanksgiving. There's just something about that holiday - something about looking back and reflecting on everything that you are thankful for while surrounding yourself by loved ones... amazing.

6. Cooler evenings. It's still warm enough during the day that you don't need a coat, and in the evening it cools down enough that you can go for a run without getting bogged down by the heat - love it.

7. Blankets, movies, and staying home. In the summer it is go-go-go... we are rarely at home, and rarely do we sit down and enjoy some time together. In the fall things start to wind down and we are home more often, lending itself to more 'us' time.

8. Halloween is coming! Halloween is a big deal in our house. We start planning immediately following the last Halloween, but the plans start to actually come to fruition in September.

9. Christmas is coming! Can you tell that I love holidays? Nothing can beat being surrounded by loved ones.

10. Fall cleaning. I don't really spring clean - spring is a time for me that is just full. In the fall I am back in the house and see the dust that has accumulated over the summer, and every year a sort of fever comes over me - it's time to clean and nest down for the winter.

What are your favorite things about September?

Monday Treasures: September 3rd, 2012

Welcome to September!

At the beginning of Summer, I promised that there would be something new and different for Monday Treasures in the Fall, and here it is: Your weekly hug! So as of next week, Monday Treasures will be changed to be called the Weekly Hug: The Perfect Way to Start off the Week!

Of course, myself being a huge cat aficionado, what would we start with but kittens?
