Hello , friends! This week is my birthday week! I’ve always loved my birthday week because it includes Labor Day. This year, I did not request my actual birthday off, Thursday. I normally do but it seemed weird to be off Monday, come back for two days, be off again and then come back again. I should have just taken both Thursday and Friday off.
No plans today besides a little volunteering later.
On Monday, we are staying in town but going to my in-law’s house for ribs! I volunteer Monday nights but since it’s a holiday there is no outreach that night. During they day, I hope to hit the used book store by my house. They are having a big sale.
I have been reading City of Girls for what feels like forever but only because I’ve been reading it in-between other books. I am finishing it this weekend or else!
Also, who is ready for the R.I.P. Challenge?
I watched the movie I, Tonya last night. It was actually, very good. Excellent performances by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney.
Tonight, Fear the Walking Dead, and in a few weeks I will be ready for a new season American Horror Story.
New Things I’ve Tried:
I tried that Rao’s jarred pasta sauce that everyone raves about but it was really, just a good quality sauce. Not worth the price which averages $10-$12 per jar in California. If you can’t make homemade sauce, I highly recommend the Arrabiata sauce from Trader Joe’s instead.
Three-day weekends. Love them because they allow for one day of errands, one day of fun and one day of rest. Yesterday we hit Santa Barbara for the day. The weather was perfect.
What are you all doing this weekend?
