It’s been kind of a different week, though not an unpleasant one. I haven’t gotten half done what I wanted to, but did accomplish a few things here and there. Here are some of the favorite parts of the week:
1. Organizing a couple of areas. I started by cleaning out a corner of my drawers where I stuff receipts, and ended up sorting and reorganizing two dresser drawers. And I have a box where I keep gift bags and a bag where I keep tissue paper, and both had gotten disheveled as new things got tossed in, so it was nice to get those organized — I can see better what I have and it doesn’t look messy any more.
2. Dinner made by someone else. Jason and Mittu came over and made dinner last Saturday — chili, corn chips, cornbread muffins, salad, and pumpkin pie.
3. Choco Peanut Butter Dreams. I tend to crave them during autumn though they are not specifically fallish.
4. Nestling under the covers on cold nights. I tend to get hot at night and have to put feet or hands or shoulders out from under the covers to get comfortable, but I don’t like to sleep without covers of some kind. So these cool nights when I can comfortably tuck everything in are really nice.
5. Hot cereal on cold mornings. I’m the only one in the family who eats it, and I don’t like the instant variety. It was nice to discover I could make one serving of regular cream of wheat in the microwave.
I bought stuff for one of those beautiful fall wreaths with burlap rosettes that I have been seeing all over the Internet. The burlap roses weren’t going so well last night, but I hope to figure them out this weekend.
Have a great Friday!
