As the days get shorter, the weeks get shorter, huh? Another one down and in the books! I was glad to welcome the sunshine back from the gloomy rainy week we had previous! Much better for the mood all around. Another happy note, I had my first huge bio exam on Thursday and I feel very confident about my performance (virtual high-five!). And another fun thing, do you watch The Walking Dead? Well you should, and the new season starts on Sunday! (Of course I’ll be watching the episode online on Monday, so don’t tell me anything!). I made sure I finished the short “Fear The Walking Dead” series they put online too. Definitely not anywhere near as good as the real show, but a nice way to ease you back in 😛
Isn’t it great that Halloween is on a Saturday this year?! Well okay, maybe if I was still of trick-or-treating age it would be even better, but still, a weekend is less stress since you’ll have no obligations the next day as you recover from parties, staying up late, and candy comas! I’m pretty sure I’ll just watch some classic scary movies and call it a night, Saturday is my day of rest anyway. I do miss the days of dressing up though! I always went all out (why would you not!).
But we still have some weeks to go! So for now, kick you feet up, grab some coffee, and settle in for this week’s Finisher! Happy weekend!
Monday: Slow Cooker Applesauce
Tuesday: Highlights From The GFAF Expo 2015
Wednesday: Apple Pie Quick Bread

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:

So tell me:
+ This will determine your recipe fate next week: Granola? Doughnuts? Brownie/Bar/Cake thing? Crunchy Snack?
+ Walking Dead fan? Are you pumped?
