#DSFWeeklyRewind… 10/22/17

#DSFWeeklyRewind

Happy Sunday! I am again joining my friend, Tara, over at Daisy Smiley Face for her new linkup #DSFWeeklyRewind. This is a way for us to connect and rewind through our week (our “playlist,” if you will), reflect, and express gratitude. This week there is a linkup. Come join us!

Last weekend we went to Fall Fest at a rural Lutheran memorial grounds. We went last year, too, and fell in love with these doughnuts made by an Amish group. So we went again this year to get more Amish doughnuts. They also make a mean bowl of chicken and dumplings, which we also enjoyed. The weather was perfect. And when I say perfect I mean it. It was Midwestern autumn in all of it’s glory. We browsed the craft tables and my older daughter got a handheld acrobat toy (that has mesmerized me) and my younger daughter got a wooden gun that shoots rubber bands. I was so thankful for beautiful skies, warm temperatures, fun and family time.

On Tuesday, I had a work dinner at a trendy, upscale Italian restaurant. About 25 of my coworkers went. Now, I am neither trendy nor upscale and I have pretty significant social anxiety. So functions like this really throw me into a tizzy. I fretted all day about it. In the end, it went great. The food was amazing and the socializing wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be. I was thankful for good food, friendly coworkers, and a good job/department that paid for it all.

On Thursday, the Los Angeles Dodgers eliminated that Chicago Cubs from the NLCS. And the Cubs didn’t just lose, they were spanked (11-1 Dodgers). The Dodgers won the series in just five games. I (and the rest of Cardinal Nation) am ecstatic. Thanks, Dodgers!

I finally caught up on my favorite podcast, Steal the Stars (by Mac Rogers). I binged it for several days. It is amazing. Great story and wonderful acting. Now I have to wait for the weekly episode. I think there are only a couple episodes left. I will be so sad when it is over.

The six month wait is over… The Walking Dead comes back tonight! I am so ready to catch up with Rick, Daryl, Michonne, Maggie, Carol and the gang. Even Negan.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. Yes, I figured how to use the inlinkz thingy. đŸ™‚ Thanks for participating!

    I’ve not had Amish donuts. but some in Philly make truly awesome potato chips. Yum. Sounds like a nice day.

    Sounds like a good company you have there. I used to struggle at work events, so I hear ya on that. I think it gets a little easier with practice.

    So the Cards are out, but you wanted to be sure the Cubs were out, too, right? Will you watch the World Series? Who will you root for?

    I’ll have to check out that podcast.

    Hope you enjoyed TWD. I don’t watch that one, but perhaps I should….

    Happy week!

    1. You should watch TWD! I’ve been watching since day one and am totally hooked. I bet those potato chips are amazing. Yes, I was adamant that the Cubs had to be eliminated. My universe is in balance now. I’m not sure who I will root for in the WS. Maybe Astros?

  2. Glad you had good weather! Ours was gorgeous as well and I can just smell those Amish doughnuts!! OMG Hope Walking Dead is still good.. I’m one of the ones that got really ticked off and stopped watching after…that particular episode.. Glad your dinner went well, I’m not too uncomfortable in those situations but I don’t find them super easy, either.. Have a great week!

    1. I know several people who stopped watching TWD after *that* episode. It is still good, though it is in a bit of a rut if you ask me. This Rick versus Negan thing needs to come to a head fast. I still love it, though.
