For the week of October 13th….
Plans for the week ahead
Recovering. We had a nice little trip to the beach planned for this past long weekend, so naturally every single kid got sick… fever, headache, sore throat, chills, exhaustion…. ugh. We stuck it out, and the trip wasn’t a total loss, everyone had short windows of time when they felt okay…. so we still had some good times. This week though, those that still aren’t feeling well are staying put and resting. Including me, who just now seems to be coming down with a telltale scratchy throat and headache. Oh, well.
Getting back into a routine. I have not really looked at my calendar yet for the week, I have been avoiding it since we got back.
This week will be a short week because of our trip and needing a day to sort everything out and get back into a routine. I ordered the next Bookshark level for Grace and Christopher and it is due to arrive tomorrow.
Out of doors
I thought we were going to spend a lot of time hiking over the weekend, but alas, no such luck. Still, it is beautiful out there. You just can’t beat fall in New England. Even when you are mostly looking at it out the window.
In the kitchen
Well, I think I probably need to go shopping as I am not sure there is really anything worth eating around here! Last week, because we weren’t “doing school”, I had a ton of extra time, so I made lots of stuff with apples.
I made a bunch of applesauce to have with dinner and then did up a few jars for the freezer. I want to save it to go with the potato latkes we always make for the holidays. I made pie crust for an apple pie, which I forgot to take a picture of. While I was at it, I figured I would make four pie crusts so three could go in the freezer.
And then I made a ton of apple pie filling, some for a pie for that night, but most for the freezer. I really wish I felt this productive every day!
Watching & reading
I am reading Small Island
. We haven’t watched much of anything except lots of cooking shows in our rental cottage while various people rested! I have The Woman in Black
from Netflix and am really looking forward to watching it, I loved the book
Hope you have a great week!
