Long Weekend

When most people think "long weekend" it is a happy thing - an extra day off.

When I say long weekend, I mean just that. It was a long weekend.

But it's Tuesday now, one of my very happy days :) I get my CSA today. Hooray! (Note: Grow Alabama is even MORE awesome now because they expanded their bronze plan - ours - to include 6 different fruits and veggies instead of just 4. Win!)

Unfortunately, I also have to go to the dentist to get my cavities filled. And we have to see what Mark's teeth need to have done to them too... Boo :(

On a more positive note: Happy things!

-My aforementioned CSA! Some things on the menu this week: sausage and sweet potato soup (sounds weird, but Epicurious has rave reviews posted, AND Deb at SmittenKitchen made it and liked it, so it can't be bad...), curry, and apple pie. Oh, fall. I love you.
-Fall has finally come to Birmingham, AL (for a little while, at least.) I think I'm going to debut the boots today. Maybe it will make my dentist appointment less depressing, knowing I'm wearing something cute... (yep. that's a stretch.)
-Tomorrow morning, at 9:30 am, we pick up our sweet puppy. I have SO MUCH TO DO before she comes home still... Anticipate pictures. I'm breaking out the old digital camera for the occasion so you can at least see some of the adorable-ness immediately :)
-I know I've said it before, but my husband is awesome. He is so patient. So, so patient. Thank you for being patient with me, my darling.

It's early early, but I need to get moving moving. Lots of things on the to-do list today!
