I guess you could say I'm as happy as a tick on a hound dog. It is going to be our first cool weekend of the season and I can hardly wait! Cool, as in, nice crisp air and sweater weather or possibly a cup of hot tea curled up with a good book (there is a chance of rain beginning tomorrow). High of 60-65 Friday-Sunday! Yeah! It has been a long hot summer and I think everyone around here is looking forward to fall. Everyone except my daughter, that is. If the temperature drops below 80 degrees she heads to work in her ugg boots and some sort of sweater or jacket. Might just be why she chose to live at the beach.
The book I will be curling up with (rain or shine) if I can sneak in a couple of hours is a self-help book I picked up last week. I consider myself a healthy eater but I am no longer a "spring chicken" and it is time to quit kidding myself and take control of my health. It makes me happy to be in the kitchen and now I must begin eating with my head instead of my heart. This is a blog in itself and you will be the first to know when I officially begin the transformation. (which will be very soon indeed!)
Right now, I am happily transforming my daughter's home from Halloween decor to Fall. You know how I feel about those "spooky" things hanging around. A couple years ago, we took the oldest grandson to the mountains during this time of year and had a wonderful time. We brought home pretty leaves and delicious apples but unfortunately hubby can't take vacation time right now so we have to make do. (Boo Hoo) I went to the grocery store this morning and came home with beautiful organic produce and organic fruits for the table.
I think a pot of homemade chili and grilled cheese sandwiches will be in store for my weekend. I might even whip up some yummy pumpkin bread. I think you are supposed to "pig out" before you begin a new weight loss program. Right? Happy weekend, happy fall!
