The weather has made for an unusual fall.  I like it, but it's still so weird to be in the 70s in October.  Of course today it's actually cooler and will be over this weekend, but it's made it hard to embrace the fact that it's fall.  It kinda feels like summer but I'm sending my kid to school and we could have been camping more.  I am anxiously awaiting the approval of vaccines for my 10 year old.  I need this so much. I also would really like the two year old to have that availability but the 10 year old is out in the public way more so than us and I know she is itching to get back to indoor activities that we've been avoiding.

Pictures from the week:

The high of my week was visiting our local public garden with my mom and youngest.  It was a perfect temperature to wander through and look at flowers, leaves, squirrels, water, and the canopy walk.

The low of my week was  dumb people.

Meal plan for the week was  
Monday -  Steak Sandwiches, roasted broccoli, chips and cottage cheese
Tuesday -  Baked Potato Soup and salad
Wednesday -  Homemade Crunchy Taco Hamburger Helper this is a family favorite.  I actually added a package of riced cauliflower with it and NO ONE NOTICED.  Ive been wanting to make a little extra because it's always eaten up an the package of riced cauliflower let us have leftovers.  I am betting you could even sub the rice entirely and just change some cooking directions and liquid amounts.  I also served corn, guacamole, and cut up tomatoes.  Then everyone adds what they want.  And some add sour cream.  I also usually have out olives.
Thursday -  Cashew Chicken Stir fry this is also a family favorite.  we switch out the veggies frequently and sometimes do fried rice with it
Friday -  Little Caesers make your own pizza kit (nephews fundraiser) with a southwest salad

The best money I spent was on groceries?

What I’m listening to  This weeks favorite podcasts have been The Piketon Murders, Counter Clock, and Sharon Says So.

What I’m watching I just recently finished the entire series of Murder She Wrote.  I am almost finished with Blackish.  And I have one episode left of Chesapeake Shores. Oh I am also liking NCIS and NCIS Hawaii. I am about to start Diagnosis Murder and he last season of The Good Witch. 

What I’m reading:  The Personal Librarian.  Really liking it so far.

My plans for the weekend we are celebrating our friends marriage tomorrow and hopefully cutting some trees that have fallen and burning some of them.

What are you watching/reading/listening to?
