GOOD MORNING sweet friends. I hope you all had a GREAT week and safe Halloween. Our Halloween was a bit quieter than previous years, but the little ones had the cutest costumes. It was another of those weeks that just flew by for me and I didn’t get my entire list accomplished. I’ll reorganize, reprioratize and try to get it finished this week 😀
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE Normally at this time of year we are a bit dreary. I don’t know what happened this year – maybe it was the early COLD snap or something, but it has been a perfect fall – COOL, CRISP and CLEAR. This week is supposed to be the same, but a bit warmer day and night before the gray, rainy days look like they’ll be reappearing.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE Banana with caramelized balsamic vinegar and hot water
