…..for Halloween decorations?
I don’t think so, either. 🙂
Wednesday when I got home from work there were TWO packages waiting for me! It was like Christmas. The first was my new vacuum that I ordered off Amazon.com: Dirt Devil M085590RED Featherlite Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner:
We’ve been without a good vacuum for awhile now (I’ve had to use either the tiny handheld vacuum or the shop vac). The vacuum arrived in a million pieces so on Thursday after work I spent about an hour putting it together all by myself. I felt proud that I was able to do it AND it worked! You have no idea how excited I am about this vacuum (I’m weird, I know).
Thursday was a rather gloomy day. I think it’s official: Fall has arrived in Portland. Some trees are starting to change colors, the weather is way cooler, and it’s so, so dark in the morning. On the way home from work I stopped at the Dave’s Killer Bread outlet store to pick up a loaf. I was craving my favorite Fall food:
Grilled cheese! YUM! I stopped eating grilled cheese sandwiches for a long time because I felt like they were too high in calories. Then I sat down and actually figured out how many calories were in a grilled cheese. They weren’t that bad!
I used Dave’s Killer Bread Potato Oat wheat bread and it was perfect. The cheese: colby jack shredded. Sweet mustard on the inside of the sandwich, butter on the outside. And don’t forget the pepper bacon.
My favorite combination dinner is tomato soup and grilled cheese. I see that in my future. Dinner was nice and comforting. And I was wearing a sweater too. Where the heck did summer go?? This colder weather may pose a problem for me trying to commute to work on my bike. I did buy a Groupon for a local cycling store (I think $20 for $50?) and I’m going to buy some cold weather gear to hopefully get me through it.
On Friday I came home to two more packages! The first:
I’d won Monica’s tea giveaway awhile ago and it arrived–complete with a very cool looking new tea carafe. We drink tons of iced tea so this is fantastic. I cannot wait to try the new carafe too. There’s a holder for the loose leaf tea so it’s less mess.
And finally, my business cards! Months ago I commissioned one of Michael’s coworkers to make me a logo and then I proceeded to procrastinate all year long. Still haven’t revamped my website but I do finally have the business cards. Not only that, I’d gotten a Living Social deal for the business cards so I got a fantastic price!
QUESTION: What’s your favorite Fall food?
