Weekend Review: YUP! Sure Does Feels Like Fall Up Here.

Well it's time to turn on the lights early in the evening again and make hot cocoa. Man it feels like fall just showed up at our door!  This past weekend was pretty typical and pretty quiet. I slept wrong or something and ended up with one terrible and painful stiff neck that made it impossible (just about) to turn my head to my right. So glad we didn't have any thing special to do and could just take it easy.  I took it easy with my personal challenge. Only did 51 miles this week. Still I'm 94 miles from my goal. I'll take that!

By Sunday, I was feeling a lot better and good thing to as we got to play with the Grand Girls for a bit and they will sure wear us out! I wouldn't have it any other way!

Speaking of making hot cocoa, I really like pumpkin hot cocoa as well. It's pretty simple too. I take my hot cocoa recipe from here; add pumpkin syrup from the recipe here. Mix and enjoy, don't forget to top it with whipped cream for a special treat. 

How was your weekend? 


  1. Glad you were feeling better and could enjoy your time with the grand-girls!

  2. Glad you got that crick in your neck straightened out and could enjoy the time with your grands.

    It's fall-like here, too. We've had lows in the 40's and had a good frost Sunday morning. The leaves are starting to turn ... I love fall!

  3. Yep, it's fall here too and I love it. I haven't had hot chocolate yet, but I'm sure it won't be long. :)

    Hope your neck is feeling better.

  4. It has gotten chilly here as well.
    We went to see Third Day at an Atlanta Amphitheater. Good thing I wore two long sleeve shirts and my coat.

    Hot cocoa sounds really good.
    I've never tried it with pumpkin.

  5. Yep, fall finally arrived in our neck of the woods, too. I had to turn on the heat on Sunday morning :(

  6. Sorry about your neck!! That is always painful! That cocoa sure looks appetizing!!


  7. I like the way you live. It always sounds so peaceful and cozy at your house. I never take time to sit and drink anything comforting.
