TSS: Fall Break
It's fall break. The house is full, activities galore are planned, and the kitchen is a hive of activity. My college-aged daughters are home until Tuesday and my husband has taken the week off. There wasn't much reading last week, but it was a good one nonetheless.
The girls came home on Wednesday. One drove herself but, since the other doesn't have a car, I spent 7 hours on the road. Time passed quickly as I listened to Jitters: A Quirky Little Audiobook for the first part of the journey and got caught up with my daughter on the way home. Although the humor may not be for everyone, I'm enjoying this audio production. The audio "book" designation puzzles me since it was never actually published in print form. More on this after I've finished. I am also thoroughly enjoying 97 Orchard by Jane Zeigelman.
Sports took center stage for much of the week. First, baseball is over. It was a disappointing series for the Yankees, but the Tigers definitely deserved to win that final game. It's time to move on to college basketball...
Yesterday was all about football. It was Homecoming Weekend at the local high school, and they won big! In the evening, we went to my nephew's Homecoming Game. That one was a defensive struggle, but he scored a touchdown with 10 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime. Unfortunately, they ended with a loss. We got home in time to see the last half of the SU game on TV. A field goal in the final second broke a tie and gave Syracuse the win.
Today we're off to the pumpkin farm. I also need to take a new header photo. With beautiful sunshine and leaves at their peak, today is the day! Hope you enjoy your Sunday.
