craving, waiting, remembering, liking, cooking

Hope you enjoy! 

Craving,
I have totally been craving the leftover Halloween candy! I am doing my best to stay out of it but that's not working so well! I have a huge sweet tooth and every late night I find myself, coming to the kitchen for a few pieces of candy! I suppose I could get on pinterest to find some uses for all of it but its been the perfect bedtime snack... but my dentist might say different!

Waiting,



Well right now this very minute I am waiting on my husband to get home. He still has about 45 minutes to go...if there are no customers and then I am sending him to the store. So its going to be a while still. Hopefully he comes home in a decent mood and doesn't go to bed too early! But I am also waiting...waiting...waiting..on....


           DOWNTON ABBEY. Gosh.. .why does it take so long to start up over here? I have been going crazy for this show to come back on but sadly we have to wait until January.



Remembering,
I think this time of year is when I really miss all our family and friends who are no longer with us. I remember them more during the holidays. I guess because I have so many memories of being with them during the all the big family gatherings and such. It took a long time to learn to live without these beloved people. I think its important to always remember where you came from, and who came before you. Every Christmas Eve, my brain and heart seems to go back to my grandfather sneaking my brother and myself a Christmas gift. He loved it.. and I loved him. I loved them all which is why holidays are often bitter sweet. I try now to focus on my kids but I always remember what it was like when we were all together.


Liking,
I have really been liking my new Calender/Journal. I found this Christian Planner in my local grocery store - Ingles - in the book section. Its very soft which I like a lot and also has a good layout. You have your monthly layout and then the daily layout is in columns with AM on top and PM on the bottom half of the page. It has a ton of other features too that I will show in a updated planner video....probably mid December. I love planners and here lately I have switched a couple times but I am going to try to use this one for a long while! 



Cooking
I have been cooking warm comfort foods. I really want to make potato soup sometime this weekend. Cold nights.. warm fire..comfort food...makes me happy! I have also been baking a lot too. In fact, I have some ingredients sitting out getting room temperature for a dish I am making either tonight or tomorrow. Fall brings such great flavors with it. I can't wait for our big Thanksgiving Feast and our Magical Christmas dinner!


Have a wonderful weekend!
