Miscellany Monday

Last week was just not my week. Thursday thru Saturday in particular were bad. Friday night David got our Fall decor box out of the attic. I was SO excited to decorate this weekend and for Fall to start! When we opened the box, though there was a horrible smell. It was full of thick fuzzy mold and mildew. Everything was ruined, including Rylie's Thanksgiving crafts she made the past 2 years like this glove turkey......

Oh I cried. It was my fault though. Last year when I packed it away, I was sick and not paying attention. A small, real pumpkin was packed in the box and that's what caused the mold.

I'm still sick and have been since last Tuesday! Just usual crud! No stuffy nose, no fever. Just sore throat and chest congestion.

I made this yummy meatball vegetable soup last night and even the girls ate it!

Here's the recipe:
1 pkg fully cooked meatballs (12ishoz)
1 can white kidney beans (cannellini 14oz)
1 can diced tomatoes with basil and oregano (14oz)
10 oz frozen mixed veggies
1 cup dry small pasta
3 cans beef broth (14 oz ea)

Put all in pot except pasta. Bring to a boil. Then add pasta and bring back to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 min. Sprinkle with parsley if desired.

Seriously took 30 min to make! I got this recipe from a soup magazine. Cant remember which one.

Rylie looking so cute heading out to school this morning!

Remy eating breakfast in sister's chair! I'm thinking we're done with the highchair and going to get Remy her own booster like this. Rylie still needs hers because our table is so high up. I'm so done with cleaning a highchair! They get so dirty!

Here's to hoping we have a better week ahead! So glad Fall is officially here. Sad I have no decorations for it though.
