A perfect fall day...

Only one more sleep until Summer Vacation is over an my girls are back in school. Today was a lazy day, but I must admit that I've been out of my "groove" for months. This week (with back to school on the horizon) I made it a point to plan meals for the week and get lunch ideas from the girls. I swung by Michaels to pick up some white ink (for Christmas cards - I'll post those later) Then we went to the Country Pumpkin for some veggies and to the grocery store for the in betweens. When we got home everyone pitched in to clean out the fridge, freezer and cupboards and get dinner started. Now - Meatloaf is cooking with some fresh buttercup squash and baked potatoes...and even better still - I have yellow eyed beans soaking for Boston baked beans with spoon bread for tomorrow night! Yummmmm!!! I soo can't wait! I'm really looking forward to getting back into a routine - I miss routines - they're good and I like them. They make my life easier and although I would like to believe that I can be a free spirit who throws caution to the wind and makes decisions on the spot - or not...I'm a routine girl. I like predictability, and order and structure and when I have those things - good things (like baked beans and home made cookies) happen.

One more sleep till back to school yawl! :) I'm off to stab my squash - he he :)
