Happy birthday to Mini-me today! Wish we could be with him to celebrate but we'll FaceTime later to watch him open his presents. I did not make and ship him a birthday cake which I'm wishing now I would have done. Although I'm not sure how well a cake will ship. Anyone know?
Last Week I:
Listened To: I finished The Immortalists and started Jenny Lawson's Furiously Laughing, which I'm really enjoying.
Watched: College volleyball, The Voice, football, CBS Sunday Morning - the usual.
Read: I finally finished All The Lives We Never Lived and started Once Upon A River but haven't made it far enough in that yet to have an opinion.
Made: Duchess potatoes and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin for our dinner party last night - two new recipes that I will make again with a couple of tweaks.
Enjoyed: Last night's dinner party - as you can see we spent quite a lot of time sitting around the dining room table enjoying each other, perhaps a bit too much alcohol, and the cake my friend made that we were all a little hesitant to cut into.
This Week I’m:
Planning: On doing all the Christmas things - cards and packages will be mailed tomorrow, the presents will get wrapped, and the Christmas goodies, which I've been putting off so we didn't eat them all before Christmas, will get made.
Thinking About: How to get rid of a giant sofa sleeper. I'm not actually getting rid of it soon but I'm already thinking about getting rid of it and what I will do in the living room once it is gone. That's how much I hate that thing. And also how weird my brain can be.
Feeling: Happily tired from last night and surprisingly calm about what still needs to be done before Christmas. That last thing might have to do with the fact that I have three days off this week so I have plenty of time.
Looking forward to: Book club Tuesday, seeing the new Mary Poppins movie with my girlfriends on Wednesday, and seeing my family next weekend. Such a lot of good stuff coming up this week!
Question of the week: What's left on your to-do list this week?
