A couple of weeks ago, I paused while heading out to the car to take Bubbie to band practice, just noticing how peaceful our street looked.
Then I took a good look at the front of our house from the driveway. It's a pretty house, with lots of green thanks to recent rain. With all this talk of our future plans in Burnet, I know I will miss Camp Rustown terribly. We've raised four kids here in a house we initially thought we'd never be able to afford. It was like a dream come true moving in. When the time comes to leave, I'll be a hot mess.
It's feeling more and more like Fall with every morning. I bought some pumpkin cocoa and set it out by the coffee pot, but so far, my peeps are not ready for all things pumpkin.
The Girl refused to give me a list of things she might want for her birthday. She's so hard to buy for! I ended up getting her a pretty top she can wear to work, a dressy hair scrunchie (just because I saw it and thought it was cute), three bracelets from Charlie Madison Originals with a matching pair of earrings, a giant bag of cashews because she loves them, and at the wineries on Sunday we bought her a couple bottles of her favorites. I hope she had a fun time with the "old folks"!
Dinner one day last week: Parmesan Ranch Chicken thighs, green beans (with strangely round carrot nubs), and a baked potato. Mine was slathered in bleu cheese dressing as we are out of sour cream. I haven't been doing as much cooking lately as our schedule revolves around band, my job, and Hubby being out of town.
The Girl and Teddy love to lay in my bed - I don't blame them. All we have for her when she visits is a blow up mattress. After the first of the year I want to search for a daybed frame for The Lounge.
Then I will order another of those memory foam mattresses for it and anyone will have a place to sleep comfortably, off the floor, when they visit and it won't necessarily take up the whole room.
Can you believe tomorrow is October??
