Fall Break

This morning is my last class of the week.

The weather has changed, a cold front has blown through and the highs are in the 60’s.

Sweatshirts! Boots! (I know. I know NYC girls are rolling eyes. Sorry…but kind of not sorry!)

A light freeze is coming mid week. I went out to the garden that I had pretty much abandoned during the 115 degree summer, and I’ll be damned if it’s not flourishing. There’s tomato blooms out there that, if I cover it with a sheet at night, just might explode into tomatos for a final harvest! So that’s something.

I’m making a B in my Young Adult Fiction class. I have the midterm, a project and a grad paper along with 8 more weeks of daily grades, to bring it up to an A.

I’m making this for supper tonight. Sweet Potato Chili. So good. I can’t wait. Jalapeno cornbread to go with it.

As I was looking at the recipe…I started perusing the entire blog. The author has had her own struggle with weight.

Mine is at a place right now…my body is out of control. I can feel it. I can’t wait until my doctor’s appointment in a few weeks. There’s something else going on here that is more than emotional eating. . . but that’s the majority of it and the emotions and hormones and crazy voices. . . there’s got to be an endgame.  These posts resonated with me, go read. 

Ok, I’ve got a list of things today after class and time at the library.

Peaceout, ya’ll.

  1. Why am I rolling my eyes at sweatshirts and boots? I love sweatshirt and boot weather.

      I guess just because it gets colder there earlier, and it wasn’t 115 degrees with your a/c blasting from the end of May until the end of August. My bad!

    One thing I do like about the weather getting cooler (cold) is that it’s perfect for all those soups that I just didn’t want because of the summer heat.

      I’m excited for the soups/chili/stews, too. My next thing I want to try is a butternut squash soup. I had a bowl at West a few weeks ago that was just stupid good.

    That’s some pretty powerful stuff that girl is writing.

    Happy Fall Break! (You have no idea how hard it was to type this in mittens.)

    Sweet potato chili! It’s that time again. Enjoy the down time. You deserve it.
