Good Sunday morning to you. Hope you are having a wonderful October so far! It was so nice to carve out time and visit my parents and spend a few much cherished days in Palmetto Bluff. It is so relaxing and such a perfect way to unplug and decompress, desperately needed it. Never ever long enough but hoping to spend 2 weeks there in Nov. Fingers crossed! Trying to plan a quick fall foliage jaunt either to Vermont or the Hudson Valley in the next few weeks as many of those areas up north are starting to peak and it is the highlight of the year to take in nature at it’s most beautiful! Onward we go to this Sunday’s post….. ____________________________________ 1 A BEAUTIFUL COLLABORATION FOR AFFORDABLE MURALS WITH MURAL RESOURCES AND COLONIAL WILLIAMSBURG. Mural Resources has introduced a new gorgeous mural collection in collaboration with Colonial Williamsburg. Finally the look of super high end murals for much less. Just so classically beautiful Click here to see the collection. 2 ONE GORGEOUS STABLE We stumbled upon this most spectacular stable while taking a drive the other day, which belongs to SCAD. It is located outside of Savannah and what a treat. Little did I know they have a nationally acclaimed equestrian program, and in fact won the National Championships not once but several times. The facility is absolutely gorgeous, and love the foliage growing over each stall door. Fabulous! 3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Such a pretty and very fall inspired roundup! Some pretty blue and white instagrams thrown in for good measure but this is full on fall and I am loving every minute of it! 4 OUR GOREOUS HANDPAINTED HOUSE/PET TRAYS Today and tomorrow our incredible house and pet trays are on special for $150!

Was on once, when I was a young girl and that was enough for me. Just not my thing especially after Covid! However I found this documentary utterly fascinating. Whether you are a cruise fan or not, this is so incredibly interesting. I never stopped to think about what exactly is involved in the actual operation of such a huge boat and I can promise this is beyond entertaining. Still, didn’t change my mind on going on one but so good nevertheless! This can be seen on Prime, click here to for more info. This is a small clip of behind the scenes during meal prep…staggering! 6 AN EASY AND SUPER DELICIOUS MEATLESS CHILI! So someone told me how good this was and I admittedly had my doubts about a meatless “good” chili. Well I must admit this did not disappoint and ideal for anyone out there who is a vegetarian or who might have one in their household. This is quite a tasty option without feeling like you are compromising one bit. Very tasty, plus it’s the season of comfort foods and this is perfect for fall dining! Side note- I don’t think I had heard of wheat berries, they are a grain/whole wheat kernel. But they are easy to find, and I found them at Whole Foods. INGREDIENTS- 1(28-ounce) can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes 1(14.5-ounce) can petite-diced tomatoes 1 tbsp.chili powder 2 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp ground coriander cloves garlic, pressed onion, chopped large carrot, chopped large poblano pepper, chopped 3/4 c.wheat berries, Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper(15.5-ounce) can black beans, rinsed(15.5-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsedSour cream, grated Cheddar cheese, sliced scallions, fresh cilantro, and lime wedges, for serving Combine crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, coriander, garlic, onion, carrot, poblano, wheat berries, and 3/4 cup water in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.

I am noticing for the first time in a long time, less people wearing masks, starting to see signs removed on retail doors about mask wearing and generally speaking, feeling a ease of restrictions happening. Wondering how things are feeling on your end? How are things on your end (Covid and restriction wise)? How are things on your end (Covid and restriction wise)? ___________________________________________ And that’s a wrap. Appreciate you stopping in.
