Anyway, here's my week in a:
My beloved Panthers won their game last week against the Redskins! It was the very first game that Cam Newton was on target for 4 quarters of football. He's been playing well the first half and then going to his happy place (where that is I do not know but I do know that it's NOT the football game). Not last week! I think it might be because I decided to let Tucker wear his Panther jersey. He was all kinds of thrilled and delighted!
|He could hardly contain his excitement.|
|When he realized we were winning, he almost had a stroke!|
|Suddenly, he noticed that the officials SUCKED.|
|And he told them, in no uncertain terms to STOP MAKING BS CALLS!|
|And he sat there just to make sure...|
|Football is exhausting!|
I was in the kitchen this week- baking. I made Hubs some gluten free bread and the granola bars he loves so much...
|These are SO tasty! I found the recipe at Give Love Create Happiness. My favorite thing about these is that you can easily add any goodies you want to them! AND the fact that I don't mind Hubs eating them because they are gluten free (when I make them) and sweetened with honey, not sugar!|
|I've been experimenting with gluten free bread mixes- I like this one best! It's Bob's Red Mill gluten free bread mix. You can use it for your bread machine if you have one. I don't, but it comes with instructions to make by hand.|
I made the kids Minestrone and gluten free corn bread. And, for dessert, those homemade peanut butter cups they love so much (recipe comes from Divine Health). And then, last night, I made Hubs my yummy She-Crab Soup (which turned out better than ever and I think it's because I used coconut milk instead of evaporated milk) and Crab and Asparagus Little Quiches (also from Divine Health). Those little quiche are now on my Christmas brunch menu! Delicious! Sorry, no pictures. We we're afraid we would drool on the camera!
The morning walks have been quite nice. Except for the two mornings that someone turned the freaking heat up. NEWS FLASH: It's NO LONGER summer. Of course Tucker could care less as long as there are squirrels out there for him to tree.
|I gave that little stinker a bath on Wednesday. On Thursday, he rolled in something that stunk to high heaven and I had to bathe him again. That was fun.|
|This is the path the goes around the ponds. The front pond is on the left.|
I was going to head over to Whole Foods and see what they have in the way of sugar free/gluten free/vegan type candy for Halloween but Deanie said, and I quote, "O Mom! Don't do that to the little trick-or-treaters!" Sometimes I 'm on this train all alone.
There is something to look forward to this week! November 1 will arrive on Tuesday which means I will officially admit that I am listening to Christmas music. AND BREEZY WILL BE HERE OVER THE WEEKEND! She has a bachelorette party to attend but will be staying a couple of days!!! And I'll have her all to myself because BestSonInLawEVER is going to stay home to attend his granny's 93rd birthday! I'll miss him but it will be nice to have Breezy all to myself! It's been at least 3 years since that's happened! Deanie and NickleAss partied in Chapel Hill with BestSonInLawEVER and Breezy last night.
Here are two videos by a band that I really enjoy listening to. I had a hard time deciding which song to use, but I finally decided to share my top two faves:
I hope everyone has a fantastic week! And remember to tune into that Christmas music...oh, I mean remember to smile! Because you look so pretty when you do!
