Life in the Time of COVID-19 | Week 27

Yallll! It got cold this week! Like pretty damn cold! So its supposed to get back up into the 80s but I don’t care, I’m taking this as a sign that Fall is here and I may now fully embrace all of myths basic-ness.

Last week I said on of the things I wanted to focus on was getting back into taking nice pictures for my Instagram and I’m happy to report that I’ve made sure to carve out time everyday to get a few shots in. The picture above is my favorite of the week. Austin’s been doing a great job learning more about our cameras and I’m super happy with how this one came out.

I also finally finished the book I’ve been reading on and off for the past several months. I am so so bad about actually seeing a book all the way through in a timely fashion. It’s something that year after year I say I want to get better at but I just don’t. I’m not sure what it’s going to take to get me to actually consistently read every night. Anyway, I’ll have a brief review of the book published on the blog later this week.

It wouldn’t be a weekly update post from me if I didn’t mention Drag Race! This week Drag Race Holland made its premiere and it served just as hard as the promo images were leading us to believe it would! I am so excited to see how this season unfolds because this cast is already showing just how talented they are. I’m getting the vibes that this is going to be just as good as Drag Race UK season 1, which might just be my favorite season to date.

Our garden is still somehow producing boatloads of tomatoes, though I’m admittedly not harvesting them as frequently as I should be. I made another batch of tomato sauce for us to use with pastas this week. I also turned my Chinese 5 color peppers into hot sauce. It wasn’t terrible for my first attempt. Definitely edible, but I think I could do better next time.

Things are starting to their wind down at the farmers market as well. Our favorite green beans we’ve been buying every week are officially out of season and in their place are several varieties of potato. Hardier squash are starting to make their appearance. As the peaches dwindle down, apples are taking their place. Our local farmers market runs until November, but I’m already getting sad thinking that our Saturday morning ritual will eventually be coming to an end.

My thoughts in summary on this week:
1. Glad RHOBH is over. It was very blah.
2. Can’t wait for next weeks episode of RHOP when we finally get to see the fight.
3. I’m giving Dancing with the Stars a try this season since the cast is really good. The first week was interesting to say the least.
4. Austin’s mom and grandma with be staying with us soon and I have a feeling all of us being home all day, everyday will be rather interesting.
