sunday afternoon

It's rainy and cold - like a little welcoming gift from fall.  Outdoor plans were canceled, and the Sunday quiet has fully set it.  I'm spending my afternoon doing homework (unwillingly).  The rest of the family is napping, watching football, drawing, reading, or any other quiet-approved activity.  

We had a meal of pot roast and mashed potatoes.  What can I say?  The Pioneer Woman's last cooking show made us hungry!  Plus, I made this little video to document setting the table.  I wish I would have added more, but I forgot!  This is what almost every meal looks like - there's a lot of places to set!  :)

Another week of school starts tomorrow.  I neglected my Literature essay for a while to visit with my amazing and sweet grandparents who brought raw honey and home-grown apples.  Mmm...I'm pretty sure fall is in the air, and it is very sweet.

Two things to look forward to:

September 28 - My surprise post that I talked about here
October 1 - A new design

What did you do today lovelies?
