It is time to link up with Sarah and Holly for Hello Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was full and the weather was gorgeous! It was the stuff that September dreams are made of!

I took a trip to Trader Joe’s immediately after school Friday and it was full of fall goodness…

I still haven’t found a better moisturizer than this!

I bought a pumpkin kringle – so good…

and these cider donuts…

to take on the boat Saturday…

For dinner Friday night, Tom and I ran up to McAllister’s and this hit the spot.

I fell asleep super early so I was up with the birds Saturday morning. No complaints from me because I love weekend mornings…

It was the weirdest thing – it wasn’t storming, raining, or even very windy and our power went out for about 20 minutes…

We had big plans to travel by boat to my hometown like we did last year. It is about an hour and a half and it was chilly!

We brought our friends Beth and Bob…

Ice cream for the ride back!

The ride back was so bumpy and windy! The way there had been smooth as can be even though it was cold. We arrived back around 6 p.m. tired but happy…

I finished this on the patio Saturday night. It was really good. I usually don’t do darker, mysterious books, but I don’t read right before bed, so I can do more of these.

Sunday morning I started something lighter and pretty quirky!

I sauteed some apples for an experiment…

It rained and I had some hot chocolate after doing my abbreviated meal prep. I only have three days of school this week, so not much is needed.

Then, I went to do a rare Sunday Kroger pick up – had already done one on Tuesday, but needed some more things. I also went to Dollar Tree. The rest of the day was spent cleaning, reading on the patio, getting stuff organized and decorating for fall. Pics coming soon!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  1. How nice that you can still wear cut offs! Your weekend looks great! So, a three day week for you? Lovely! I have a fall break coming up in a month, I will so enjoy that!
    I’m reading a quite dark book right now, The miniaturist – have you heard of it? It’s really good and different in a good way!
    Enjoy your Monday!


  2. Andrea and I bought a pumpkin kringle at TJ’s in Chicago and I fell in LOVE! I had never had one before. I don’t get to Trader Joe’s often enough but darn, that was delish! What a fun weekend you had and yay for a 3 day week!


  3. We had a day that wasn’t storming, windy, or rainy earlier in the month and we lost power for 7 or 8 hours! All the food looks so yummy! I’m struggling not to eat ALL the fall treats!! Enjoy your nice short week.
