Not a bad day. Just a long day. Second week in a row of a Monday where they called me into work. I like working. I don’t like 6:00 AM phone calls so much.
Okay, I often work on Monday. What made today a bit of a long day you ask? Fire drill day. One of our (barely!) 2-year-old kids decided to lay down in a wet muddy part of the playground (the kind we block off with cones…). My coat is in serious need of a washing now.
And I went to parent-teacher conferences for J right after I left work. I left my muddy coat in the car while I went in and talked with teachers at the middle school. Time to make a plan for the rest of this week. We’ll see what happens…
As always, joining in with all the other fabulous bloggers who link up with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom.
The Weather Outside
Cold! Could we get fall back? Thirty four degrees on an October morning with a high in mid 40’s? No thank you. It snowed in the north part of our state. Much too soon for that nonsense. Thankfully, it jumps back up into the mid 50’s and 60’s for the rest of the week. Sunny days, too!
On The Breakfast Plate
I had the usual for work days: a Chobani flip yogurt and coffee.
As I Look Outside My Window
Blinds aren’t up back here so nothing to interesting. However, I did notice a blue bird perched on a wire outside the car window as I left the middle school.
Right Now I Am
Working on this post while waiting for the chili to finish simmering on the stove.
As I Look Around The House
Surprisingly, not awful. I would like a day to give it a proper clean…

Maybe an episode of Twin Peaks on Netflix, The Voice, and hoping I remember to watch Manifest (completely forgot it last week but I was at the grocery store)

New Recipe I Tried Or Want To Try
The last recipe I pinned was for a cinnamon tea cake. Maybe I’ll give it a try this week.
I finally broke down and bought the $3 coffee mug I’d been eyeing in the grocery store for weeks…
Quote For The Week
My muddle puddle loving preschool student made this quote come to my mind:
“And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.” (Shanti)
What’s on your agenda for the week ahead?
