As I look outside my window: The sun is shining and the snow is melting. Now our streets and yards look gross instead of a pretty winter wonderland.
Right now I am: Trying not to cough over breakfast. This sickness is just sticking around… Hoping it’s gone before we travel on Wednesday.
On my bedside table: A Poisoned Season by Tasha Alexander; That Mistletoe Moment; The Night Before Christmas; The Firemaster’s Mistress by Christie Dickason
On my tv this week: We finished this season of Doctor Who; sad it was a short season. I’ve almost finished S1 of Riverdale. Seriously I love it so much! Hoping to knock out that last few episodes before we leave on Wednesday. J and I started watching The Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj. One big topic each show. Really digging it, but I have to say the Amazon episode depressed me.
Listening to: Catching up on my current podcasts (NPR Politics, Pod Save America, What Should I Read Next, Reading Glasses), starting a new one (This Podcast Will Kill You), and downloading a favorite to relisten on our drive to Indiana (Presidential).
On the menu for this week:
Monday - Apple Bacon Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
T uesday - Chicken Parmesan
Wednesday -Sunday - We will be in Indiana for Christmas. Not sure of dinner plans yet.
On my to do list: Packing!!! We leave on Wednesday after school. I need to get everything sorted and packed. Plus I have a few travel tasks to complete before we leave: wrap presents, make cookies, clean out the van, stop at Trader Joe’s for specials, and drop off the library books.

What I am creating: I finished all of the Christmas cards last week, so now I’m on to prepping the Holiday Albums and my December Daily. I was going to put my DD in the big family Project Life album, but at the minute I switched it up to a separate 6” x 8” album. So now I’m back to rearranging my supply box.
My simple pleasures: Being able to breath for five minutes without coughing.
Looking around the house: Our basement has drywall again, but no flooring yet. Beyond the basement, I need to do a cleaning sweep of the house before we leave.
From the camera: Cookie decorating at Romp n Roll on Friday night. It was fun until Q had enough and lost it.
