I know there has been a big vacant sign around here lately and for that I really am sorry, it was never my intention to be gone for so long but I swear in the last three months every time I close my eyes I open them back up and a week or more has passed, I just don't know where time is going. I thought I would stop in and fill y'all in on whats been going on over coffee, because hello its fall and its the best way to get out a lot of information. Shall we?
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that I have been away from here the last two weeks in large part because I have been really sick with a cold. The Sunday we were at home I started feeling as though I could be getting sick and then Monday on our way back I was sure I was catching something and then it was just miserable. It started in my head and sinus's which is the absolutely WORST and moved its way down to my chest, I still don't feel 100%, I would say maybe 85% because my chest still feels on fire most of the time and I have to take a drink with me where ever I go or I feel like I might burst into flames. This cold has been no joke.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that Jason has also been suffering from a screwed up ankle, we don't know exactly what is going on but thankfully its starting to get better. He's been doing a lot of icing, elevation, heat and so on. Last week he saw the site medic at work and he suggested soaking his foot in epsom salts and it seems to be helping.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that my birthday hasn't even arrived and yet I have been UTTERLY SPOILED this year! I have been loving getting tons of mail for the last two weeks!! If you are one of the thoughtful people who have sent amazing gifts and cards, thank you so much.. it means so much to me!
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that the fall weather is still teasing us here.. some days are really chilly and absolutely glorious and some days are 80 and hot. I am so ready for sweater weather, now if mother nature would just follow along!
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that in hopes of kicking this cold I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup for dinner tonight and I cant wait to curl up tonight in my new pjs (thanks Mom) and watch the Thursday night shows.
If we were having coffee... I would ask how things have been with you? Its been far too long since we sat down and caught up. Really.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that I was almost a little sad not to be in Toronto last night with all the Blue Jays fans celebrating the big win! Friends were posting all over Instagram and the news here was even reporting, it was crazy!
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that the other day Jason used the sun roof on the truck and had an issue with the track. I took it in yesterday for them to look at it and they had to order a part to fix it and therefore I had to take it back today. I wasn't overly impressed but truth be told I don't venture out a lot on my own here because I am really anxious when I don't know where I am going and because the drivers here are TERRIBLE I work myself up about it. But yesterday and today I didn't have a choice because Jason had to work and it was honestly really great. I often work myself up over things that are absolutely fine but I need to do it in order to feel OK about it, and now I do.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that we are no longer going home over Halloween weekend and I am none too happy about it.
If we were having coffee... I would probably suggest a walk with our coffee because the weather truly is gorgeous.
If we were having coffee... I would definitely inquire about your fall wardrobe staples and new additions to your wardrobe for the season. Even Jason has been improving his fall work wardrobe and the other day he came home from work and I thought... damn you look good! HA! But really.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that this morning Lindsey and I ran to BJ's with Colton and Ava and Ava insisted on the cart with the car on the front so she could "drive". Well it was hilarious, she drove around in that thing waving at everyone like she was the Queen or something, it was fantastic. This is a crumby picture but you have to see it!
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that my parents sent a parcel with butter tarts in it and let me tell you.. I forgot just how much I love those things. I don't miss much anymore in regards to food I cant get here because plain and simple I just cant have it, but getting a treat you cant get here no matter how rare is pretty good!
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that although I was super sad to get rid of our old truck and I so in love with the new one! I was really at the point of absolutely despising road trips but now they don't seem half bad. Regardless though I don't want to go any further than the house, which is 4 hours.
If we were having coffee... I would tell you that I know there was more I wanted to tell you but now I cant remember and if you know me at all you wouldn't be surprised.
I think its time I end this coffee date sadly, I love catching up but believe it or not I am running out of things to say.
I am not going to commit to be back here tomorrow or even the next day, I am just going to blog when I have something to say! I hope you will all stick around and check in. I just don't want to bore you with none sense because I really have nothing to say. I am going to work on some recipe posts and stuff and be back soon!
I hope you are all doing well, have a great day and thank you so much for stopping in!
