1. I may or may not have eaten one (or two!) of these (Almost) Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies as part of my breakfast in the morning this week!

They are good post-run fuel, right?

2. Sadly, I am still dealing with the incident at school that has the administration involved, so my stress level continues to run high.

(This is my “GRRRR!!!” face.)

3. “Termination dust” (a.k.a. snow on the mountain tops) made its debut this week. 😦

4. I made my first bowl of pumpkin oats and a batch of Banana Pumpkin Muffins this week! I can’t deny the fact anymore that fall is truly here seeing that half the leaves are already on the ground.

We went on a walk after dinner. It was great just hanging out with Craig and catching up with him because we didn’t talk much at all this week.
