Today was meant for snuggles. When we woke up and made our way downstairs this morning, my eldest daughter was very excited when she saw that the green tree outside is now green and yellow. Hello, Autumn... I wasn't expecting you for another couple weeks. That's alright though - Fall is my favorite season, and around here it doesn't last long before the first snow falls, so bring on the Autumn colors!
My little munchkin was running a fever last night which meant snuggles and movies today. My littlest munchkin on the other hand, was excited to play with all the toys her big sister is still learning to share. Spending the day playing with toys without her sister yelling "Baby! Don't touch that!' must have been very relaxing, and she was sure having fun!
Pumpkin Spice Cookies were a success! They taste just like little tiny pumpkin pies. I will be posting the recipe on the blog soon, so if you want to try them for yourself, keep your eyes peeled.
I had no intentions of doing anything today, and it turned out to be a very productive "lazy" Saturday. After doing the typical breakfast and start the day routine, watching some morning cartoons with my daughter, and getting my baking done, I accidentally cleaned the house. It started with a quick spot clean in the bathroom, which turned into a full bathroom clean, which turned into washing the walls. Once I started wiping one wall, I saw the next wall had little fingerprints on it too, so I wound up washing all the walls on the main floor and stairwell, and thought while I'm at it... I may as well wash the windows and mirrors and get all the dusting done too. Which is great because it counted as my workout for today, and now all I have to do is sweep and mop tomorrow and the house will be glistening (maybe for a day anyways).
Finishing off the day snuggled up on the couch with a cup of tea, and a bowl of fresh guacamole with tortilla triangles. My "lazy" Saturday was a productive one, and while I think my daughter may need a doctor visit on Monday (we'll see how she's doing at the end of the weekend), her fever is gone and she is in otherwise good spirits. My littlest munchkin had a great day of play and climbing around the living room. I will call today a success, and enjoy the rest of my cup of tea in silence.
