A little of this, a little of that

I've got to follow in b.e.g.'s & Susannah's steps and throw a little randomness out there for you.

I'm absolutely exhausted. As in worn out, plum tuckered out (as my step-mom would say), lost all my energy, in bad need of good sleep....TIRED.

I plan to remedy above situation by being in bed at 9pm tonight. On the dot. No Fantasy Football will keep me up tonight.

Since my norm has been airports, hotels & rental cars so frequently, I decided to pull out my Cooking Light cookbook and pick some new recipes for Mr. Potts this week.

Last night's dinner was a result of cookbook perusing. We had Smoky Bacon & Blue Cheese Chicken Salad Pitas and Potato Chips with Blue Cheese Dip. Both were excellent. I made numerous small tweaks, which is the norm with all recipes I use, and was so happy with the results.

I'm ready for fall. I get a good taste of it when I'm in New England, but then I come home & it is 90+ degrees. I get to wear sweaters one week and short sleeves the next.

Driving to work this morning, there was a man waiting to cross the street in jeans, a turtleneck and his leather coat. Guess he's ready for fall too.

These stockings help, but they are so ugly. They were great in Vermont last week while I was standing & at the end of the day, my legs don't hurt as badly, but yeesh, they're ugly! And when I take them off I suppose the blood all rushes for my legs which makes them tingle.

We've all got these random thoughts that run around in our heads - at least, I hope I'm not the only one.

What's running around in your head lately?

The majority of the thoughts running through my head are about how I wish it wasn't 90 degrees outside! It's almost October and we're still in shorts and tees here...sigh!

I have been chilly ALL Week!!
I am still wearing my summer dresses (because none of my pants fit now) but I just add leggings/tights/nylons and a cardigan...and make them into fall outfits :)

Count me in next time you make BOTH those recipes!

I am totally down for having fall show up, oh, any minute now?! I am freezing cold inside the office and then sweating my tushkus off when I leave the office. So I'm wearing sweaters with tanks under them to be appropriate for both temperatures!

I am also feeling very unproductive and unable to focus, I think I have a one night spurt of omgletsdowork and then the next night I'm like blahletswatchtv. Or it could be the red wine I had with dinner....

I am thinking about work! haha Wondering what schools I have to visit. Wish I had more randomness at the moment. xoxo

For the love, I LOVE these posts! Thanks for the link love! :D

Glad the stockings are helping somewhat! And yum on the blue cheese overload!!

Love the new recipes...will try them out sometime.

And you are right, we all have so many random thoughts running all the time. In fact, I even have a tag - Random Musings!

mine have felt all random as well, I'm so ready for fall, but I don't want it to be over before I've had a chance to stop and breath!
