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.

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. ♥

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.
Please, please, please come do the autumn photo challenge with us!! The prompts are on my blog. We start tomorrow. You can share the pics on Instagram or on a blog post or however you like and as often as you like. It is entitled #25DaysofGratitude. I will share a pic a day on IG…I hope and maybe on my blog, too. With a compilation on 11.30. Come join the fun!!
Saved the Green Book podcast on my phone. I loved the movie and have read several children’s books about the Green Book. Such an interesting (and sad) time in our history.
The oatmeal cookies sound divine. Would love to make some and send them to my oatmeal-cookie-lovin’ mom. Great pic of your kitty. Love the angle. Will give Truth be Told a try.
Thank you! I am totally joining in on the photo challenge! Thanks for the heads up.
We refinanced last February and I’m so glad we did! I’m glad you got a lower interest rate too! So sorry to hear about house issues. It all seems to happen at once doesn’t it?! It can be really frustrating!
Yeah, It’s a bummer we can’t do the fun stuff to our house that we had planned, but at least we will have money to fix the crawlspace issues.
