    It might snow tonight!  We are keeping watch~making cookies and hot chocolate! 

  • This evening, I discovered that all of the meat that I purchased on Friday has been in the refrigerator, rather than the freezer--the "sale by" dates were all December 6.  It was cook it NOW, or lose it--so I made sirloin burgers, a large pot of meat sauce, and as I type, the pork is roasting in the oven for carnitas.  So, dinner should be covered for the next couple of days...I am cooling off at the computer with a glass of iced tea, LOL!

    This past week was busy.  A large and unpleasant task was completed~I am thankful.  A little boy turned six~he is so happy!   

    Now I am trying to finish up all Christmas shopping and prepare for baking and candy-making.  My boys will have lessons to complete this week, then we might stop for the year. 

    This evening, I am preparing all of my bills for the week and checking my calendar.  There are a couple of things that I need to schedule before January...

    I will try to blog a little more this week!  :)


  • Scarce, lately...

    This is a busy week!  Actually, the past month has been quite busy--I miss blogging, reading, and commenting on my subs!  :)

    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my in-laws house.  My friend, Erika, visited from Finland (by way of Florida, LOL).  We had not seen each other in 18 years, since my senior year of high school.  I think I wrote about this--she lived with us that year as an exchange student.  On Friday, we went to the Renaissance Festival in Plantersville.  I haven't been since I was pregnant with Sailor, six years ago!  It is like a time-warp--I love that...

    I thought that I would be finished with my Christmas shopping by now, but shopping has been put on the backburner for the past couple of weeks.  I am hoping to get the boys' stocking stuffers finished next week...

    Sailor will turn 6 on Friday!  He wanted a big party (and we were planning it), but there is too much going on (and for once, I am not afraid to change plans, LOL!), we compromised with him having a friend spend the night, for the very first time.  He is so excited. 

    I've had my Christmas play-list ready for weeks and finally had time to post it tonight...enjoy!  (Just ignore that Peter Cottontail at the end, LOL--it's on reserve!).  :)
