thoughts for today.

applesauce to be

it's tuesday and we're already chugging through the last full week of august. laundry is tumbling and to-do's are being checked off. a batch of homemade applesauce has been portioned for storage in the fridge for now + the freezer for later. summer rambos are the best for that, by the way. if you live in the midatlantic and can get your hands on these babies, scoop them up quick.

a bit of news: a guestroom is in the making! we acquired a bed over the weekend, and with a little rearranging it fits perfectly in the upstairs bedroom. now i have a little nook at the top of the stairs in which to blog. i am rather impatiently piecing together the room, simultaneously attempting to not break the bank. am scouring goodwill and ikea and final sales.

this weekend, we took advantage of baltimore's restaurant week and enjoyed our first date night as husband and wife. the sun peeked out long enough for us to relax for a few hours by the pool, and i spent time perusing my september issue magazines. as the summer slowly winds down, i do find myself dreaming of pumpkins and brisk walks and football season. but for now, i'm savoring the last bit.
