I missed posting last week! Not for lack of trying. I started a post last Sunday morning, tried finishing it on Monday night, Tuesday, and by Wednesday….well, Thanksgiving!
This morning I’m back!
And already feeling a bit accomplished as I just added a plugin to get rid of the new Word-press editor and go back to the classic way. I’d be really accomplished if I’d learned the new system. However, I’m just not ready.
Time to plan the week ahead. Last week was busy, holiday included. The weekend was relaxing though. I’m hoping for a slightly less busy week this time but it’s December so….
let’s just join in with Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom to see how this week looks:
Cold this morning! Didn’t order this. It’s okay, correction on the way. 40’s later today and then, into the 50’s for the rest of the week. And sunshine!
On The Breakfast Plate This Morning
Lots of coffee! And a bowl of instant oatmeal (apple cinnamon kind)
As I Look Outside My Window
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…some neighbors have lights on their houses.
Right Now I Am
Enjoying the quiet while I work on this post, hoping I do not get called into work, and thinking of the hundreds (probably not that much) of things I need to do today.
As I Look Around The House
Not bad if we avoid the teenager’s room and the bathroom. And the kitchen table. And the couch covered with stuff. Christmas is up though! Tree in the living room, greenery on the doorway to the kitchen, Nativity out. So it makes the mess pretty.
On Today’s To Do List
- Go to library, told G I’d pick up a book for him
- Grocery store maybe
- Clean the house
- Cyber Monday maybe
- Work on blog
On This Week’s To Do List
- Must go to grocery store
- Clean out fridge/freezer of Thanksgiving stuff (should do today)
- Wrap some Christmas presents
- Do some clearing out in teenager’s room
- Clean out some kitchen cabinets
On The Menu This Week
After a discussion last week (on the way to a restaurant after a visitation, family friend passed away), J mentioned how Americans don’t do as much home-cooking as their European counterparts. I may have made a reply about their kids not complaining as much. However, it made me think I should be a bit better about cooking at home…so I’m trying to be a bit more intentional in my menu. Bad time of year to decide this…however, why make things easy?
MONDAY: *not a home cooking kind of day* Fish and Baked potatoes *J has a baritone lesson at 6:30*
TUESDAY: Sweet and Sour pork, rice *I work 1:00-3:45*
WEDNESDAY: *not a home cooking kind of day* Maybe Subway? *J has a band concert*
THURSDAY: Fried round steak, mashed potatoes, salad
FRIDAY: OUT *This day is up in the air due to band stuff over the weekend that I don’t have the details for yet*

On The TV This Week
I took advantage of the Black Friday special and got us a year of Hulu. So I’m re-watching LOST. Such a great show. Not very Christmas-y, huh? We did watch Frosty The Snowman the night it aired. And I need to watch the latest episode of Mr. Robot still.
What I Am Creating At The Moment
A house decorated for the holidays. Not much else.
From The Camera
I’m having some issues uploading photos to my blog and didn’t pick up the camera much this week/weekend. All the photos in the post are from last week.
