First on the agenda? Halloween pictures!!!
A random pumpkin at one of the houses that we stopped at. Did I mention that it’s freezing out? No? Well, it is! Here’s the proof: The kids were cold too and didn’t want to go to as many houses as usual. Amen! We came home and caught the tail end of Beetlejuice instead.
Kinda random, but our house has 4 bedrooms. Three of the 4 have original hardwood flooring (the house was built in 1962) and one has carpet. This is the room that we use as an “office”. I hate vacuuming so disliking carpet follows suit. Also, and I hate to admit this, but one of my cats decided to be spiteful one day and peed on the rug. Bad ass feline! Needless to say the smell won’t come out no matter what I do so the carpet has got to go. We went out last weekend and bought some of that “click” hardwood as it was on sale at Home Depot. My hubby hasn’t gotten started yet, but when he does I plan to take the opportunity to spruce up some of the furniture in there, rearrange things and maybe buy a love seat and some contemporary coffee tables to spruce things up! I’ll be sure to post before, during and after photos once we get started.
I took DS to Starbucks after his game yesterday: See, bucks is at the mall which is where I really wanted to go but I knew he wouldn’t want to. Enter bribery:
As long as he was nursing that vanilla bean frap he was agreeable to any store I wanted to check out. :)
I bought a new kind of oats at The Bulk Barn the other day:
They’re dense and have a great chew factor to them. They take a bit longer to cook but are well worth it. I topped my first bowl of them with coconut butter, carob chips and walnut pieces. These are a few more of my eats:
I can’t believe we’re on week 4 of the Thanks & Giving food drive! So something I’m thankful for this week is the city I live in. The community is on the small side, walkable, has lots of green space and most importantly is a SAFE place to raise my kids in. I’ve lived here all my life; my kids actually go to the same elementary school that I did! HA! My neighbourhood is quiet, friendly and sports some amazing views. I really can’t picture myself living anywhere else! Do you love your city? And now for the food item of the week: Canned vegetables! Again, you can buy any brand you want, any vegetable you want. I got peas and carrots because they were on sale 3/$2.00 this week. Remember to check out the Thanks & Giving tab at the top of the blog if you’ve missed an item.
Hope you all have a great few days! I’ll be back either Tuesday or Wednesday…
Bye for now!!
