Good Evening!! What a great weekend!! My Cubbies are going to the World Series!! I’ve been spending more time watching the games with my mom, she is doing well, and we have enjoyed watching these games, even though they have ended way past our bedtime. Still busy with helping the boys with school. Hoping things calm down soon so that I can carve out some time to write. Haven’t participated in the Blogbattle for some time now, and miss it. The mornings have been cold, and the days a bit dreary, but we must go through this to get to the good stuff. Yes…snow!! Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.
LOL CHUCKLES, AND GIGGLES:
RECIPE I’VE TRIED:
My last post I posted the Chicken and Dumplings recipe. I did try it over the weekend, and as it sometimes goes, I get really excited about a recipe, make it, and then I’m not too impressed with it. But my family loved it, go figure. What I didn’t like about it was the dumplings, there’s a certain kind of dumpling that I like, and I haven’t mastered it yet.
WHAT I’M WATCHING THIS FALL:
Along with the fall weather comes the Fall TV season. I don’t actually watch the shows when they air, I usually catch up with them on my laptop, or I just recently downloaded an app on my phone!! So those nights where I can’t fall asleep, or get back to sleep (#almost50andfemale) I can stream some shows on my phone. It’s funny that I’m excited about this as I think of the progression of TVs over the years. We’ve gone from 10” black and white TVs to 70” large screen Hi-Def TVs, and now TV on our phones. Anniehow…These are the shows I’m watching:

HAPPENINGS AROUND TOWN:
OK, so this one I missed, and I was totally disappointed. Our town is getting a Mascot Museum, they have been planning it for several years, and Friday they had the groundbreaking ceremony.
The first time I saw the town advertise for this, it was a pic of the mayor with a shovel, so I’m thinking, OK, so it’s going to be your typical groundbreaking ceremony. I do get notifications from the FB page, but I don’t always look at my notifications, and I missed the one where they talked about the parade, and the ceremony at the Baseball Field. UGH!! It looked like so much fun. The Chicago news station was even out here, my mom and I sat and watched it on the 5 o’clock news.
It’s going to be a crazy place to visit, our Mayor is hoping to draw in out-of-town visitors. Here are pics from my friend Kathleen who owns the local t-shirt shop called the Junkyard, and is a big fan of the mascots.
I am totally jealous of this pic…I LOVE Clark!! (Yep, that’s Kathleen)
FAVORITE VIDEO FROM THE WEB:
Is it just me or is there something calming about these photos? 🙂
