On The Breakfast Plate This Morning…

I am currently enjoying a cup of instant coffee. Once the kids are up I will have some peanut butter toast.

As I Look Outside My Window…

It is perfectly clear, decorated with a dazzling array of stars.

Right Now I Am…

Typing this up as I watch a repeat of “Skin Wars”.

As I Look Around My House…

I want to have a mini spring clean and get ready for the Christmas decorations that I will start putting out in the first week of November (the beauty of not celebrating Halloween or Thanksgiving in Australia).

On Today’s To Do List…

Deliver brochures with the boys.

Finalise Christmas plans (food shopping list and Elf on the Shelf list).

Supervise my son’s schooling.

Write a blog post.

Write some fiction.

On The Menu This Week…

Monday – Roast chicken and gravy rolls.

Tuesday – Chicken pie with steamed vegetables.

Wednesday – Toad in the Hole with steamed vegetables.

Thursday – Chicken strips with steamed vegetables.

Friday – Tonight is youth group so something quick and easy like Spaghetti Bolognaise.

Saturday – Meatloaf and steamed vegetables.

Sunday – If It’s (if it is there you can have it!).

Currently Reading…

A Lynsay Sands book “Under A Vampire Moon”. These books are a fun way to fill a couple of hours

On My TV…

The Great British Bake Off.

Modern Love, which I binged and really enjoyed.

God Friended Me.

What I Am Sewing, Creating or Crafting…

A Christmas wall hanging for a friend.

Wooden advent calendars for Wyatt and myself.

A tentative birthday party invitation for me for next year.

New Recipe I Tried or Want To Try This Week…

I tried a new cheese sauce, it was actually pretty weird, and not something I shall be making again.

From My Camera…

A sneak peek of one of the advent calendars I am making.

Favourite Quote…

There is a reason the rear view mirror is smaller than the windshield. You are not supposed to focus on what is behind you as much as you focus on what is ahead of you.

    Keep the Christmas craft pictures coming! In Canada our Thanksgiving is done too. And now the kids have flown the coop Halloween is more low-keyed. Have had some busy weekends lately but hoping to get back to normal and be able to start on Christmas soon too.
    Have a great week

    I can’t decide if I’d be more sad to miss Halloween, or happy to have one less thing to stress about 😉 I have TONS of Halloween decorations that I just haven’t gotten out this year.

    I am sooooo late this week. Please forgive my tardiness. I LOVE the advent calendar – so cute! I hope you had a GREAT week. See you again tomorrow.
