Yes, you are running jessie /now/, and the upgrade you described was an
upgrade from wheezy to jessie. The reason for that is that you identify
the release in your sources.list file as 'stable'. Up to last weekend,
stable meant wheezy; now it means jessie.

I suggest you consult the release notes[1] and check that the upgrade is
complete. There might be some housekeeping to do.

I also suggest that you change occurrences of 'stable' in sources.list to
'jessie'. That will prevent inadvertent release upgrades in future. You
have about two years to do that. :-)
