What's going on in Blogland today?!?!?!?8:48 AM
I decided that today's post would be a bunch of things together....oh wait, isn't that what my posts are usually like anyway????
Oh forget it, nothing special then, just the usual blabbing coming from little ol' me.
I have noticed that a lot of my blogging friends pick a theme and stick with it, creating these great posts which make it easy to comment and reply to. Then you have me, I write like I talk in real life, and when I'm with friends, I have a lot to say, usually about a lot of things, not just one in particular. What can I say??? I'm multi-faceted!!!
There's a couple things going on in blogland today though, so I want to start by mentioning those.
If you love cooking and recipes, please check my post below for "Slow Cooking Thursday", there's so many great recipes being shared today, just take a minute to go see them, or share one of your favorites too, would love to have you play along :)
BTW our dinner last night was delicious....Crab Cakes served with a Tomato Rice. The kids loved it too and ate it all up with no complains and no "101 questions".
- What's this?
- Can I eat it?
- What is that red thing?
- Is this meat or fish?
- I can't eat brocolli it makes my stomach hurt!
If you are a book lover like me, then I know that you must be surrounded by books everywhere, and those TBR piles are probably looking pretty overwhelming right now.
Well Katrina, over at Callapider Days is hosting a great "Fall into Reading" feature, starting today you list the books you want to read between September 23rd and December 21st. Go here if you want to read the lists being posted, including mine :)
Something else coming up the beginning of next month, on the 2nd of October actually, is another fun feature being hosted by "Overwhelmed with Joy", I'm sure you know her from the Five Ingredients Friday meme. Well this time she is asking us to share Holiday Recipes.....How neat is that????
ALL there. Here's a peek at her fun header, so don't forget to play along :)
Yesterday I ran by the Airman's Attic to drop off a ton of clothes that don't fit anymore, most of them still new with the tags attached. I don't know, I just can't seem to keep up with the kids growing.
Anyway, I walked in and my eyes immediately went to a pile of fabric scraps, or that's what I thought, turned out that some were small pieces and others were 1 or 2 yards. LOVE IT!!!
I don't know what I'm going to make yet.
Jasmine has an Early Release Day, which means they get out earlier. Before I pick her up though, I still have to get gas in the car. Am I the only woman who likes driving but cringes at the thought of gasing up??? I don't know what it is, I just get so annoyed having to even think of going there, is it the prices (though I'm sure those make men and women cringe), the actual getting out of the car, the prospect that AGAIN the machine won't take accept my card and make me go inside....which means, dragging a 3 year old in and dodging the candy aisles???
All I know is that when I start getting low on gas, I start dropping hints to the hubby, in the hopes that he will kindly offer to go do it for me.
I also need to run to the bank and make a deposit. I think the rainy weather is making me lazy, maybe that's why I like Fall and Winter so much, I have an excuse not to go out LOL
Anyway, I better get going, there's things to do and people to see and all that fun stuff.
We're having Parmesan Chicken and Mashed Potatoes, with some green beans on the side. For dessert, the kids want Chocolate Mousse, hey it's fast and easy and good, so why not right?
