Memories of the Month - Here's a great idea for wrapping up the month with a set of questions to remember how your last month with.  I love going back and reading through what happened throughout the years.

This month I was happy about: continuing to get to work from home at least for a little longer. Getting a negative cancer result of my Endoscopy. Getting work done to the house. Refinancing our house with a much lower interest rate.

This month I was sad about: more house issues that we have to have looked at.

Here’s my rating system for entertainment:
♥ ♥ = Love it! A must read/see!
♥ = Really good! Highly recommend.
✓ ✓ = Good, not great
✓ = Not much to talk about
X = Awful. Total waste of time

Movies I watched were:
Nights in Rodanthe (Netflix) – based on a book by Nicholas Spark. ♥
American Murder: The Family Next Door – based on a true story from 2018 when 38-year-old Shanann Watts and her two youngest daughters disappeared in Colorado. You may remember hearing about it on the news. Such a disturbing story. They have so much video footage that they were able to make a documentary. ♥

TV Shows I watched were:
Emily in Paris (Netflix) so many bloggers have been talking about this one. I’ve watched the first 3 episodes. ✓ ✓ so far…
Friday Night Lights (NBC App) – Season 2 ✓ ✓ – rewatching
YouTube Channel Favorites – Fall 2020

Rob and I watched:
The Conners ✓ ✓ – there was 1 new episode
America’s Got Talent ✓ ✓ – finally finished! Happy with the winner for sure!
The Office (Netflix) Season 8 ✓ ✓ – It has gotten a whole lot better as of late.
The 100 (Netflix) Season 1 ✓ ✓
Ted Lasso (Apple TV+) ♥ ♥
Truth Be Told (Apple TV+) ♥ ♥

Things I read:
Didn’t make time to read.

Podcasts I listened to:
Driving the Green Book ♥ – very interesting stories about the African American Motorist Green Book, which was an annual guidebook for African-American roadtrippers. The people who grew up with parents who used it and the trials and tribulations that came with traveling as an African American.
The Vanished ♥ – a weekly true crime podcast that focuses on the stories and circumstances of people who have gone missing.
Paper Ghosts ♥ – another true crime podcast about 4 separate cases, 4 young girls that all go missing in the early to mid-70’s.
Millennial Life Crisis ♥ – a weekly podcast hosted by 2 of my favorite YouTubers Monica & Shelby Church. 25 year old twin sisters who live in different cities. They focus on all the things 2 millennials are trying to figure out like “adulting”, personal finance, moving to a new city, buying a house, and more. Not really relevant to my age group, but I enjoy it and find it fascinating.

My favorite song this month was:
More Than You Know by Axwell /\ Ingrosso

What I remember about work was:
Still working from home, but being in the office 1 week a month. We got word we should all be returning by Nov. 30, but I’m not sure if my department is doing that.

Something I learned this month was:
the iPhone 12 Pro looks amazing! The camera on it just excites me! I really need to a new phone bc my iPhone is getting old and apparently I’ve dropped it too much. When I take pictures with it one corner is super blurry.

Some friends and I: got together for Cookbook Club. No food shared. We socially distanced. Great to have girl time!

My favorite pic that I took was:


The favorite thing I cooked was: MawMaw’s Oatmeal Cookies – OMG! I need to share this so easy recipe that is so so good! A family favorite through they years.

Drew was: visiting at least a couple days a week, usually with Buster. However I found out earlier this week that he got a job working at Chic Soul. He’s able to still do that and work part time for Alabama Rural Ministries.

Alex was: in a pretty good most of this month. He camped out last weekend even in the rain with his troop. All camp outs are local right now during COVID.

Rob was: busy as always with work, scouts, Wesley board, Youth Advisory Board, etc!

The thing I’ll remember most from this month was: I’m not really sure when I think back through the month nothing really pops out.

In case you missed my “The Weekly” Posts, here’s the ones I wrote for September:

Look back at last month.
