Weekend Notes

Happy Last Weekend of August! Hope you all enjoyed your week?? My week was full of surprises, mostly good, and much busier than I had imagined! I'd mentioned before my daughter Katelyn is in a blended learning program, that teaches her to integrate technology in her classwork. Which I thought would be something she would enjoy {and she does}, that the class room sizes are smaller, with only twenty students to a class, and the teachers are wonderful.  Let's just say, that even though she's been doing all the work, I've had to help in the back ground more than I thought I would be, and that she has had twice the amount of school work, my high school son has. Which is good, I've been saying for a long time now, that children nowadays, really don't understand what we went through in school with using typewriters, and not having google to check out answers, instead of looking it all up in encyclopedias. We couldn't use calculators or our cell phones to do math, in our heads, memorizing formulas. They are living in a different age! Some of what they are learning is good in a different ways, and some things make me go Hmmmmm....With that, I apologize for not getting around like I normally do, and today I am making another quick day trip up North, again to help my grandparents move, but I do promise that I am catching up!

Over at West Elm I found these cute fringe pillows and they are on sale for $15. Love the Fall color 'Sweet Potato' one is my favorite.

Where has this salad been all my life. Avocado and Tangerine Salad with Jalapeno Vinaigrette via Bon Appetit

One item I have always wanted was a Chalkboard Menu. I am updating my Autumn Bliss Pinterest board, and this pin is my absolute favorite!

I found a new series on Netflix to watch, called Chef's Table. If you like Travel and enjoy food as much as I do, you'll love this show!


  1. I can't imagine what school will be like for little Jax. Hopefully I can figure out all of the new-fangled ways of doing things! ;-)

  2. Love the pillows, you Autumn Bliss board and that pin! Make me one of those chalkboards while you are at know how horrible I am at crafting! ;-) Hugs!!!
