Weekbook November 23, 2008




For Today....A funeral, laundry, more cleaning.

Outside my Window…drizzling and cold.

I am thinking…..about Thanksgiving and ADVENT, which is this Sunday already. Yikes!

I am thankful for…..for a safe and smooth trip, there and back, and to be home. :) For my kids (and dh) who did a great job keeping the home fires burning while I was away.

From the kitchen…tonight I think we will have beef and noodles. I tried making some skordalia this week. It is a greek garlic dip, made with potatoes as well. I can't seem to get the consistency right, although the flavor is there. Guess I'll have to head down to Greektown. :)




I am creating…..a thanksgiving feast.


I am wearing ......what I will wear today: Grey dress pants, black tunic, black and white print knit shirt under, black boots.

I am reading.... Finished "The Boxer Rebellion". Now reading "The Unredeemed Captive". I also found a cute little book at the thrift store called "Words to Live By". Very inspiring.

I am hoping…..I can get caught up on the laundry at some point. I guess that is one thing that was overlooked while I was gone. :)

I am hearing....mostly just the furnace blasting. I am sitting right by the vent.

Around the house…although the kids did a pretty good job at keeping up with things while I was gone, it did need a little of mom's tlc :) ( not that I am any expert here) I got started on that yesterday morning and actually unpacked my suitcase last night! Hoping to get to that kitchen floor this long weekend.

One of my favorite things: Manny calling me "My Dear".

A few plans for the rest of the week…..Funeral. Thanksgiving. Finish painting. Start on kitchen floor. Get the upstairs cleaned up. Start Christmas shopping.

A picture I am sharing with you......"All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!" ;)

I think every house that doesn't have a mom suffers from this. I was gone for three days a fortnight ago and my dear 13 year old daughter did one load of washing. The laundry was a mess when I got back.
