Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing well today. I am off from work for a few days and totally enjoying it! Today is my birthday, so I decided to give myself a bit of a break. Let’s link up with Sandra at Diary of a SAHM shall we?
It’s cold and rainy today – no complaints, though! I’m enjoying a lazy morning inside before I head out this afternoon for a few errands.

How I am feeling this morning
I am in a really great mood! We had a really nice weekend and I am catching up on several projects so I feel really good about that.
On my mind
Starting to think about the holidays, what to make, what to do, etcetera.
On the breakfast plate
This morning was just coffee with heavy cream.
Right now I am
Listening to the washer finish up a load. I’ll switch it over to the dryer soon. Then I think I’ll make some tuna. I’m craving a tuna melt with bacon for lunch!
On my reading pile
I just finished reading Rage by Bob Woodward, and I would highly recommend it. Next up I need to read Delirium by Laura Restrepo for the library’s book club discussion in November.
On today’s to do list
Vacuum the house, finish up one load of laundry, grocery shopping.
On my TV
We finished watching “The Unicorn” on Netflix, which was really cute and great for the family! Funny and heartwarming without being too cheesy. I also finished “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” which I absolutely loved. It’s not that scary (though there were a few good jumps), and the story is sad and beautiful. I have one more episode of the new Unsolved Mysteries. I think this week we’ll be watching a lot of ghost shows and scary movies.
On the menu this week
Monday – Chipotle take-out, cheesecake (it’s my birthday!)
Tuesday – Mississippi Pot Roast over mashed potatoes, green beans
Wednesday – Greek chicken wraps, roasted tomato soup
Thursday – Jerk chicken legs, red beans & rice, broccoli
Friday – Pizza & wings, salad
Saturday – Mummy dogs, turkey chili, cole slaw, French fries (Halloween)
Sunday – Meatloaf with gravy, potatoes, green beans
From the camera
We had some gorgeous weather last week and this tree by the library was just too perfect with the sun and the colors. I love fall!
Looking around the house
I need to tidy up the living room and run the dishwasher. Otherwise all is quiet for another couple of hours until the kids get home from school.
New recipe I tried last week, or one that we really enjoyed
Not really a new recipe, but last night I made delicious stuffed burgers. I mixed together some shredded cheddar, a bit of cream cheese, some bacon, and some diced jalapeno and made stuffed burgers. Everyone loved them!
To relax this week, I will
Work on some craft projects — catch up on memory planning/scrapbooking and maybe do a little sewing.
Something I want to share
Hmm… can’t think of anything for this one.
On my prayer list
For the safety of everyone voting early
For a more compassionate country
For family & friends
