Here's what no one needs this time of year - a cold that basically takes you out of commission for two weeks. Poor Big Guy and Miss H both caught it this week and I still didn't have the energy to care for them the way they deserved to be taken care of until this weekend. Pushing myself to get the main floor of the house cleaned this weekend and the Christmas decorating done (I started two weeks ago; it's sort of time, don't ya think?).
Last Week I:
Listened To: Ta-Nehisi Coates' The Water Dancer. So good and the reader, Joe Morton, is phenomenal.
Watched: Some of the traditional Christmas shows (The Grinch, Rudolph), White Christmas and Elf for movies. And, of course, The Voice, football, and college volleyball.
Read: Guys, I finally hit a wall. I've been reading like crazy but being sick really put a kibosh on my reading. I've got books from the library that I'm probably going to end up taking back unread and I hate doing that! I'm feeling a little bit like reading is work right now and that's never good.
Made: I think spaghetti pie and brownie sundaes are the only things I can really say I made this week. Otherwise, it's been mostly tossed together meals, whatever is easiest for which ever of us feels best.
Enjoyed: Happy hour with friends the other night. It was so good to get out of the house and do something fun!
This Week I’m:
Thinking About: I'm pretty sure you've figured this out by now!
Feeling: Happy about the lovely weather we've had the past week - lots of sunshine and it was even warm enough yesterday that we had the back door open.
Looking forward to: Book club this week!
Question of the week: I'm thinking of what I'll make for meals while my family is all together. What are your go-to holiday meal ideas?
