Thursday Thoughts

Suddenly it feels like fall. Last Sunday/Monday I was barefoot in the house. Now I have my feet tucked in socks and slippers and my toes are still cold. I'm drinking a lot more tea just to try to warm my hands. Last night the low was around 35. When we washed the sheets, we put the electric blanket on the bed and I used it last night. I already miss summer.

Mailbox update: several days after SP put up the new one, it was tipped forward. ? Great. A couple days later, it was tipped backwards. ? We later found out it was tipped back by a neighbor who saw that when it was tipped forward, it opened and our mail was on the ground, about to fly around the neighborhood. Great. So this past weekend SP had to re-do the mailbox. I hope it's fixed this time.

What We're Eating:

  • Grilled lamb kebabs, grilled mushrooms, grilled onions, roasted tomatoes, and rice
  • Spinach-bacon-chicken pizza from Pizza Milano
  • Dessert: Eat'n Park Halloween cookies

What We're Watching:

  • Last weekend we watched The Mummy, just to see if it was really as bad as the critics said. Yes, it was. It was worse than they said. I give it 0 stars. 
  • I watched Patriot's Day. It was a pretty good movie, and made me cry, of course. Stupid terrorists.
  • TV is the usual. The only thing that stands out is the end of This Is Us and once again, I didn't cry. That's 2 weeks in a row of not getting teary while watching This Is Us.

What I'm Reading:

  • I read Bad Little Falls and am anxious to request books #4 & #5 but I need to read the other 2 books I have first.
  • I finished the recent food magazines, all about Thanksgiving. I've never been a big Thanksgiving meal person. The only 2 things I really like/look forward to are my grandma's stuffing and apple pie.
