A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
READING: Things on Sam Houston, don't ask...just got on a kick about something, his name came up, and I was off and reading on Sam Houston for some reason. Someone had to do it.
LISTENING TO: My friend Nancy doesn't care for some of my taste in music, so in her honor, it's all Mozart all day. Better than Axl and Def? Who's to say?
COOKING BYTES: Tired of making desserts...it happens every year at some point, usually when everyone else is gearing up for lots of holiday desserts, and it has reached that point again this year...thinking this might need to be a dessert-free week or two.
FAV NEW FIND: Not necessarily a new find, but I love, love, love having Matt and Mark home for four days in a row...very relaxing and nice.
FAV THING THIS WEEK: Believe it or not, today we managed to get the house all decorated for the holiday season, so that feels lovely to have all that finished before the busy choir gigs, swimming gigs, and holiday festivities have us all running to and fro. Matt's friend Reyn came over and helped decorate...photo is Matt and Reyn in front of the tree in the foyer.
GOING TO: Spend time with family as Mark's family is all in town for the Thanksgiving holiday, so that means some sort of doings each day. Swim practice and choir practice and Mass serving for Matt as well. I might get some time to cook/bake. Lots of Big Ten sports to watch...IU/Purdue tomorrow at noon, the Oaken Bucket game, IU hoops tonight but delayed broadcast until tomorrow, Hawks tonight live. Might actually do some Christmas shopping. Going where the wind takes me this weekend.
PRAYING FOR: Safe travel for everyone on the road this holiday season...yes, especially you...please join me.
