As I look outside my window: The tree on the side if the house has turned completely golden. I love fall.
Right now I am: Snuggling with a tiny baby. Love the snuggling stage.
Thinking and pondering: When will I be able to leave the house by myself? Really starting to go stir crazy in here...
On my bedside table: I have no idea what I'm going to read next. I still have over half of Voyager by Diana Gabaldon to finish. Plus I put multiple things on hold at the library. Guess it depends on how fast I finish Voyager and when those holds come up.
On my tv this week: J and I have been watching a few movies: Independence Day 2, Angry Birds, Captain America Civil War, and Ghostbusters. Out of those three, I'm going to say that Ghostbusters was my favorite. Also, we've caught up on Full Frontal and Last Week Tonight. And we've restarted watching Shield. We stalled in the middle of last season, but have started to catch back up.
Listening to: Momentary silence. We've been mostly homebound for the past two weeks while I recover from surgery. The situation has resulted in a stir-crazy toddler who's incapable of being quiet. Once he gets super loud, the baby starts making angry noises. But right this minute, all is quiet in my house. I'm going to enjoy it for a bit.
On the menu for this week:
- Monday - Gouda Turkey and Artichoke Quesadillas with Black Bean and Salsa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

- Wednesday - Leftovers

Happening this week: Still recovering from surgery, so I'm not really scheduling anything or even driving yet. We do have Quentin's 2 week and Arthur's 3 year doctor's appointments on Tuesday morning. Very excited that I could schedule them back to back. Makes it a whole lot easier to take care of.
What I am creating: Working on nailing down Christmas card designs for my Christmas card buffet classes next month. So far, I have 3 out of 8 designs set. I need to choose and make the other 5. Plus, I'm trying to catch up with the Project Life albums.
My simple pleasures: Peanut butter filled pretzels. Oh man! I am addicted. A friend bought us a giant tub from Costco. I'm amazed we still have any left.
Looking around the house: Toys need to be picked up. The living room needs to be vacuumed. But otherwise, the house is in decent shape considering I haven't been able to do much housework.
From the camera: Arthur was talking to Quentin apparently. I intruded on their conversation to take a picture.
