Funny how easy it is to fall back into our routine after a 2-week break! We got up this morning and said goodbye to your Dad for the weekend as he had to go to the mainland for a tournament. I chose to stay home with you in order to get you back into your routine. You’ve been waking up a bit earlier than usual (and so have I!) and I’d like not to break up your routine any more than it needs to.
Getting dressed this morning, I decided to try on my “skinny jeans”. You know, those jeans that have been in your closet for ever with the high hopes that you’ll one day fit into them again? Well, to my wonderful surprise, THEY DO FIT and with just minimal “muffin top” too! 😉 I can easily hide that with a long t-shirt and a sweater!
After your Dad left, we got some more groceries and it took me all of 15 minutes to get a split pea soup going in the slow cooker. I got everything chopped in about 5 minutes, thanks to my wonderful Vita-Mix! 🙂 Now, the soup is cooking and the house is deliciously fragrant! Perfect for a rainy day like today!
The rain let off late this afternoon and it was all it took for me to load you up in your stroller and go for a quick walk. I was getting a bit of cabin fever and needed to move, so off we were. The air was crisp and the fall colours were in full display. As we were walking, you could even smell some fireplace warming up the houses along the trail. We were also awarded the show of 3 flocks of Canada geese flying right above us. They were really loud and you were trying to figure out where they were going.
We came back home, I put you to bed and I had a nice hearty bowl of chili for dinner and there is now a fire roaring in the fireplace. Yep, it is officially fall! Hopefully, it won’t rain too much this season so we can still enjoy being outdoors!
