Not sure what we’re going to do to celebrate. December birthday means squeezing things in around already busy days. This weekend we celebrated my brother-in-law on Friday evening, Saturday, J & I spent all day in Columbia while he tried out for the all-state band, and yesterday we didn’t do much of anything.
Well, we did cheer on those Chiefs! Some of us. Band kids don’t follow sports much. G asked if the win meant they were in the Superbowl now. Not quite yet.
We were all tired yesterday, I think. And I’ll be honest, I was having a minor meltdown over the number up there.
How was your weekend? Time to move on to the week ahead!
The Weather Outside
It’s been delightful but today is the big switch over to frightful. Not too much though. Just a bit of mist, maybe snow, and wind chills in the teens. However, it was 47 when I took J to school this morning. It’s supposed to be yucky today and tomorrow but nice again for the weekend.
On The Breakfast Plate This Morning
Typical old person breakfast of cinnamon apple oatmeal and coffee
As I Look Outside My Window
I’m in the basement and the basement window shade is pulled. I’m watching a stink bug (ugh) walk around the window sill and wall by it. Trying to decide if it’s worth the effort to go get the bug stuff and remove him from my view.
Right Now I Am
See above, working on this post, listening to G get ready for his last day of classes before finals week begins.
As I Look Around The House
I see Christmas decor amid the mess. It really just needs a bit of picking up and of course, a good *someday it will happen* cleaning.
On Today’s To Do List
- Water plants
- Clean out the fridge
- Go to grocery store (maybe)
- Work on some Blogmas posts
- Clean up down here/the desk
On This Week’s To Do List
- Pay some bills
- Maybe some Christmas shopping
- Lots of running J to band practices later in the week
- Put gas in the car/clean out the car
- Pick up the camera and take some pictures!
On The Menu This Week
It’s going to be a hard to plan the menu kind of week, I think. Probably just throwing ideas out for each day and then, if they happen, great.
MONDAY: Not sure. We may go out early. *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*
TUESDAY: Pork chops and sweet potatoes
WEDNESDAY: Roast in the crock pot
THURSDAY: Leftovers/something easy *J has band rehearsals from 4-7, I think*
FRIDAY: Same as above *J has band rehearsals from 4 to 9, I think*
I read an entire book on Saturday while waiting on J, The Mistletoe Promise by Richard Paul Evans. It was a nice Christmas type read. I’ll probably look for a few more of those for the rest of December. However, if I don’t get to the library today..I’m also reading Invincible Summer by Alice Adams. Plus, Anxious for Nothing: Finding Calm in a Chaotic World by Max Lucado.
On The TV This Week
Is it not TV season? So much to watch, so little time! Oh, and I took advantage of a Black Friday deal to get us Hulu. Currently, I’m watching The Great Holiday Baking Championship, Prodigal Son, and Lost on Hulu. Fuller House and Riverdale on Netflix. The Flash on the CW app, Mr Robot (note: I liked this show enough that I bought season 4 from Amazon just to see the last season). And my husband started watching The Handmaid’s Tale over the weekend getting me kind of interested. Plus I watched some Brooklyn 99 episodes with G (he loves that show almost as much as The Office).
What I Am Creating At The Moment
Nothing although I’m in the mood to bake after watching people do it on TV all day yesterday. Of course, I’d like to know who’s cleaning all those dishes. I’d get a lot more excited about baking if someone else did all the cleaning of the dishes.
Quote For The Week
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
(Luke 2: 6-7)
