Here it is, mid-November, and I am wearing sandals and a short sleeved shirt. I also have windows open in the house, how crazy is that? Truthfully, I could keep the windows shut, but I thought I’d take advantage of this warm weather and let some fresh air in. Usually, right about now I’m clammoring for light dustings of snow, but not this year for some reason. Actually, it could stay this way straight through March and I’d be fine with it. A mild winter could be nice for a change!
So it’s Friday and I’ve swept, mopped, done some laundry which I still need to fold and put away, and I’ve got some stuffed shells finishing up in the oven. I still have one more load of laundry to wash (it never ends!!!) and I’m debating how bad I need to run to the grocery store. Will N. freak out without his beloved apple juice tomorrow? I just really don’t feel like driving over there after I pick up J. from nursery school.
Thanksgiving is less than a week away, can you believe it? I am having a hard time getting into the spirit of things this year. I’m sure it’s mostly because I thought we’d be in a new house for Christmas and that’s obviously not going to happen. It’s so discouraging. I guess I’ll have to hope for Easter! I’m basically done with my Christmas shopping. OK, technically not everything is bought, but I know exactly what I need to buy, and I have a couple things I need to make. Sadly I guess I’ll miss out on Black Friday shopping this year because I have nothing I need to get. 🙁 I love going to the mall at 5 AM! (It’s the only time of year when hundreds of other people are up as early as me!). Oh well. I’m sure I’ll go shopping anyway just to be out. (Though I probably won’t be out at the crack of dawn).
Well, I have a little bit of time left while Noah finishes his nap, so I’m going to get a little knitting done (to hell with my laundry!).
