Thursday's Thoughts!





I am sitting on the sofa...sort of reading, watching football and playing on my ipad. Our dinner is planned and under control. I am listening to the sounds of Den emptying the dishwasher!
There's snow outside and everything looks beautiful!

I would love to take this day to thank all of my friends...near and far...new and old...for talking and texting and emailing and chatting...all the things we do to stay connected!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hugs to all!

From,

Patty

Wednesday's Woes!!!

Ok...so we opted to stay home because if we drove to Ohio we would be driving through horrible weather...major snow...for hours...so we ordered a cooked turkey and drove through this today to get it...this was the start of the snow. Now...we have snow everywhere! And...Janssen's...the most beloved specialty store ever...forgot to cook our turkey! Totally their fault...they were so sweet but they forgot! So...they are cooking it and then delivering it to us...in tons of snow! If they are not able to get here we are having stuffing and pie for dinner! And gravy! Isn't it all about the gravy?








Sipping this...the directions say that when the milk is steaming the cocoa will ACCEPT the chocolate mixture perfectly! And it did!






Yum!





Reading this...sooooooo good! Every word is sooooooooo good!



So...Happy Wednesday! Happy Almost Thanksgiving!

Tuesday's Trials And Tribulations...

We opted at the last minute to not make the grueling 7+ hour Thanksgiving drive to McDonald, Ohio...so...the guilt starts now...I want to be there but that Wednesday drive is hateful plus we are getting snow here plus I just surprised everyone in August plus everyone expects us to make the effort and normally we don't mind but I just want to be here at home. Whew...not feeling any less guilty, though...in fact after writing this I think I feel worse! Sigh! We ordered a cooked free range turkey. We ordered a pumpkin praline pie...I am making small sides...drinking Bloody Mary's and having smoked salmon on baby potato pancakes while we watch the parade! I am even making stuffing in the slow cooker!

This movie was so good! We loved it!




I am in the midst of a minor reading dilemma...reading this...



but trying to decide what to read next...











The girls apparently solved their own sleeping situation...peacefully, blissfully...they must have read my blog!



Happy Tuesday!

Monday's Moments!

We are still bed juggling with Roxie and Lucy...all last year they each slept in their own beds...this year they both want the same red bed...we even have two red beds but they both want the same red bed! Cats are complicated!
Lucy's turn...









Roxie's turn...









This lasts for about 15 minutes and either Roxie gets tossed out or Lucy leaves.






A bed alone...the bed no one wants...is it the color? The feel? What? Why?






Books! My shelves are heavy! My Kindle PaperWhite is filled with docs! I am so sorry to not link these books but it does not ever work from my ipad2...

Mystery...







Love this author...this is a different kind of book for her...








Looks so good...








Dysfunction...






Historical...sort of?






Yum...








YA...








Loved the first one....








Wanted this because of this cover but the book sounds good, too...I am a glutton for books with two names on the cover...








Mystery...





Today includes...getting a Five Guys cheeseburger or else...seeing this...and zipping into Trader Joe's for Chinese food...their frozen ones are awesome, dudes, simply awesome!






Happy Monday!

Sunday's Schedule...

Until football season ends...our Sunday revolves around football!

Today it's this...

...waffles and yummy bacon for breakfast...

...hard cider and popcorn during the Eagles game...maybe chips and salsa to go along with the yelling...cheering...screaming...and general excitement...

...playing with Lucy and Roxie and soothing them when Den's screams scare them...they have really good jump reflexes...lol...or Lucy just stays in her bed and tunes Den out...



Roxie just likes to jump for any reason!



...a short recess until the Bronco game is on...more yelling...screaming...cheering...and possibly tears...yep...tears are in the cards for this one...

...baked tacos and salad for dinner...that will conclude the football portion of this Sunday...

Reading this...I find that a lovely fantasy on football Sunday helps me to totally get through a day of football...I barely even know it's on...


I can be serene and at peace with the day! See? This is my peace filled look...totally!
You can almost hear me chanting!


What's up in your world today?

Happy Football Sunday!
