Happy Monday! Fall and Football joy

foundersday2016

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a nice weekend with my family too. We attended the annual Founder’s day in our town. The boys like walking around and getting pizza and I of course needed my fried dough.  Nick went off to hang out with his friend’s while Apollo, Leao and I checked out the vendors. Not much to my taste but I did pick up a free sample of honey and am enjoying it in my tea as I type right now.  I snagged 2 great books from the library sale for $2. Now that is a bargain! We also spent time with my in-laws on Sunday and had a belated birthday celebration for my mother-in-law. I picked up the most gorgeous variety of cupcakes from Whole Foods instead of a cake so we could all just indulge for a bit. I have to admit it was pretty yummy.  I realize in my haste to inhale those yummies, I forgot to take a picture of them. I would love to have showed you all the pretty details they put into them.

On one sad note, one of my favorite supermarkets (Hannaford) closed it’s doors on Sunday at 3pm. A new market called Big Y will be taking it’s place. I hope the staff stays because they are absolutely lovely and I hope they continue to stock some organic items.

But what really made my weekend was the return of the Patriot’s and football season. I watched the 1pm game and then when we got home, I prepared for bed and watched the Patriot’s play. It was hard not seeing our quarterback at the helm due to his 4-game suspension but the game was exciting right up to the last few seconds. Go Pats!!

Fall is my favorite time of year from the clothes, colors, foliage, food and football. I get excited as it approaches each year because it’s like a New year for me. I know January is the New Year but I celebrate new beginnings twice a year. Once in September and then in January. I also base my work schedule around the school year, so this is the time of year, I begin creating new product lines and ideas flow so naturally. The crisp morning air rock’s my world and the football anthem playing on the TV fills me with hope for new beginnings. It’s so funny how much joy I have doing a simple thing such as watching the games with Leao and my father-in-law but I really look forward to it each week. I also have a friend who we virtually watch the games by texting each other after bad calls or crazy plays.  It’s been our ritual for some time and it’s another way she and I connect each week. It’s great fun.

So I hope today and the week ahead is beautiful for you and remember to slow down to cherish the moments because they are always there waiting for you.
