Wow – this week went by so quickly! Halloween is tomorrow – that is crazy! I am linking up today with Andrea, etc. right here.
Here you go – a hodge podge of things that made me happy this week!
I finished this book early in the week. I really enjoyed it – it was a touch cheesy. If you are a fan of country music you might like it. A singer songwriter goes to Paris to meet a big country star for her business shared with husband who has cheated on her. A little Paris, a little country music, a little romance, some challenges – it was a good quick read for me!
I had a meet up with my French teacher friend who teaches at another school. We sat outside and only got through about 1/3 of this giant cider. We tried pineapple cider and grapefruit guava cider.
She wanted to give me an early birthday present – so sweet! Would it be o.k. if I tried to show my foot on the computer screen while virtual teaching or is that weird?
I bought these disposable coffee cups a few weeks ago. I like to have some disposables on hand. I made myself hot chocolate one afternoon.
I am really enjoying the crackle of my new Woodwick candle!
Ernie makes me laugh when I catch him sleeping on his back!
I got a nice stack of books from my library pick up on Monday after school. The Last Flight by Julie Clark, To Have and to Hoax by Martha Waters, and I cannot believe I already got the third book in the series by Elin Hilderbrand, Trouble in Paradise.
I got my Christmas Pioneer Woman magazine! I am trying to save it. I am not really into Christmas until Halloween and Thanksgiving are over.
You guys – Clare has to be the worst Bachelorette ever! I do not want to spoil anything but it is a trainwreck. First of all, they cannot go anywhere because Pandemic. So, the dates are like on another part of the property I guess. She is cancelling dates or parts of dates because she does not feel like it, yelling at her men, getting into fights, and she clearly favors one man and is not giving the other wayyyyyy hotter and nicer and more authentic guys a chance. I said too much! Can anyone recommend a blog or podcast that makes fun of this show? I need this now. Sheaffer, you would have pure gold here!
The French teacher at my school, one of the Spanish teachers at my school, and I planned to meet for lunch at our local French place one day and this week was the day. These two teachers were supposed to take kids to France and Spain this summer but of course it was cancelled. I was invited to chaperone but I knew it would be a busy summer with graduation, college, a big trip for our 20th anniversary/graduation so I declined. Oh, 2020!
We all started with the French onion soup.
And, I split a croque madame sandwich with one of the teachers but forgot a photo! We talked and talked for 2 hours on the patio.
I started this book first and I am hooked! I cannot remember which blogger recommended it.
This weekend I plan to make chili, mummy dogs, lasagna soup, and a few more fun things just for Tom and I as far as I know! I also plan to switch to my Thanksgiving decor below.
Other things that made me happy were sharing my apple cider sangria recipe, my fried rice recipe, and my new camo purse strap. If you missed those, feel free to read back to my other blog posts from the week.
What made you smile this week?
How are you celebrating Halloween safely?
Thank you for reading and happy Friday!
