October Goals & 10 Day Give

October 1, 2013

Beautiful Autumn p-l-e-a-s-e come our way!

California is generally known for warm weather this time of year, but a girl can hope even plead for cooler days, clear skies, and color in the leaves.

It’s time to get busy with our October goals!

Baby Steps:

1. As always, keep doubling those meals.  Just twice a week will give you 2 months worth of dinners in a year.  And your food budget won’t freak out!  If you’ve been tracking with us all along, in October you get to take a week long cooking vacation!  Every three months we do this, so that we eat the stuff that has been in the freezer the longest and the meals stay fresh!

2. Get your Fall/Winter garden fully in.  At the moment we are only part way there.  So our goal in October is to finish getting the rest of our plants and seeds in the ground!  Perhaps you don’t live in a place where you can have an outdoor garden year ’round, but perhaps Winter is a good time for herbs in the kitchen window or for setting up a small greenhouse!  Hmmmm…..possibilities!

Big Girl Steps:

Participate in the 10 Day Give!


The concept behind the 10 Day Give is to kick off a season of intense gratefulness and awareness of God’s provision and presence in our lives by giving.  Giving time, giving money, giving possessions, giving special gifts.  Just GIVE!  Give intentionally for 10 days!  Will you join us????

All you have to do is check back here every day, for 10 Days, beginning TODAY!  We’ll be giving away lots, and lots of fun things!  We want to bless your provision rooms and help fill your home with joy!  Be sure to invite your friends to the give, too!  The more the merrier!

Participate in the 10 Day Give!  It’s easy.  Every day give something away!  Could be something you already have that needs a new home and you’ll know will bless someone else.  Could be a batch of cookies for the firehouse down the street.  Could be a pumpkin spice latte for your favorite teacher.  Could be your time to help an elderly neighbor rake her yard.  Really, the options are endless. Give of your time, your money, your possessions, yourself.

Why are we doing this?  Why should you do it, too?

“For it is in giving that we receive.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.”

(Prayer of St. Francis)

    I am following you from Titus Tuesday. Sounds like a great challenge. So far today I have given away time to visit a friend who went to hospital. Tomorrow I will see where God leads me.
