Books, recipes, interesting articles and more from around the web this week for you to peruse and enjoy!

Candy Corn

Good Friday morning friends and happy almost Halloween! I hope that you had a great week. It's funny because I frequently see posts on Instagram that joke that "every day seems like it is the weekend" since Covid-19; I don't feel like that, I actually think I work harder now because there is nothing else to do. In any case, I am ready for the weekend, I just want to relax. I've had 6 Zoom calls this week, a doctors appointment, a dentist appointment, and work, throw in about 100 trips a day outside to take Patches for a potty break and this girl is worn out. 

I have lots to share so lets get to it!


Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup is just one of the things I have to share with you this week! I also have lots of interesting articles, some books, a few of my favorite finds and more.

  1. I forgot to buy candy corn this year! Oh well, I don't need the calories. I'm doing a lot of reading right now.
