What I Plan To Bake
Chocolate Texas Sheath Cake oh yum...MaMa lost her recipe trying one from a friend from church

On My To Do List
Networking (it's a secret right now but could use some prayers)
Staying organized on my posts
Deep clean the house
Start a Fall Crochet Blanket

My Ta Da Moment
Got some crafts for swaps done.  I've been behind. 

On The Crafting Table

This was so fun to make it is called a Pocket Letter.  Made from a baseball card sleeve.  It is filled with treasures for a crafting friend. 

On My Reading Pile 
The mail man brought this one yesterday 

I was asked to review it so I thought I would give it a whirl. I'll let you know how it is. 

Added to this pile . . .

From the camera

A sweet one from the archives.  No he is big enough to feed the horses all on his own with me watching from the sidelines.

Your pocket letter project came out beautifully and looks like lots of fun!

I try to get a jump on my Monday post, too...usually Sunday afternoon or evening...but it doesn't always happen. Your menus look good (last week's AND this week's) and I love your photos...especially the one of the pocket letter. I made those for the grandchildren one year for Valentine's Day. Have a great week ahead and may many blessings be yours! :)

Had seen those pocket letters but they were filled with gifts for children - I like the idea of a craft gift!
Your breakfast casserole looks soo good.
Have a great week
