Part of me is sad because I do so love the heat, but I am the only one in this house that feels that way. Hubby and Becke the wonder dog both like fall. No need for the AC at all. The ceiling fan can be on low just to move the air around. The window is open and sleeping is not interrupted by sweating. August doesn't care what the weather is. When he gets cold at night, he climbs UNDER the covers with me. If I'm cold, I put a light jacket on him! He's one happy boy and just loves hanging out with us. I believe he forgot how cold it gets in winter up here!!!
One thing I do love about fall is the food. As much as I like salads, burgers, and grilled veggies, I don't think of them as "Comfort Foods". When I think comfort foods, cream soups, baked custards, mac & cheese come to mind. In the morning hot oatmeal with maple syrup, hot cocoa and warm apple crisps scream comfort foods and fall is the best time to enjoy those. So, as a low carber, fall is the most dangerous time of year for me.
This weekend was relaxing, slow, easy and full of warmth. Saturday Hubby and I went Christmas shopping and was surprised at how few decorations were up and how few stores had Christmas wrapping paper so wrapping the gifts will have to wait, but we took a nice bite out it!
We were in Toys R Us and really feeling our age as we had to ask the sales clerk a few times to help us. Our DIL was kind enough to send the Christmas Wish List of our 2 grandsons to us and we had no idea what some of the things were!! Ever happen to you? So we were in the store, asking the clerk what they were and where could we find them. Boy did I feel my age.
They live in San Diego and the youngest grandson also has a birthday in November and both our son and DIL have birthdays in December so it's a busy time for that family. Because I'm Scottish and therefore cheap, I get all the gifts together (including Halloween) and get them all out at once. So, that is what we worked on, onSaturday.
Sunday, church took up most of the day as it was a Pot Luck day. We all bring something and share, talk, get caught up with each other's lives and generally have a great time worshiping God and being a family. I made Pot Roast. It was in the crock pot and we took home an empty crock pot. A nap and movie watching rounded out Sunday.
See, lazy, slow, filled with warmth and love. How was your weekend?
