I'm not sure how many of you follow hockey, but it's been a rollercoaster weekend for those of us north of the 49th parallel. Our junior men's national team skated out of the IIHF tournament without a medal for the first time in 15 years. But then this morning we woke to the news that the NHL and NHLPA have reached a tentative agreement in their contract dispute that has dragged on and on. Now, I will confess that I'm not a huge fan of NHL hockey. There are too many teams, and the season is just too long. But all the same, I'm glad that the lockout appears to be over. The only people being hurt in it were the fans.
Anyway, on to the chit chat!
What am I...
Reading - A fabulous book! Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. I'm about halfway through it. I love her way of interweaving of past and present in this and all her other titles. In this one, the main character is a sixty-something actress who is trying to discover the secrets in her mother's past. Set in England, alternating between present day and WWII (in particular London during the blitz). And the description she uses for Laurel makes her sound, to me, like a dead ringer for Maggie Smith, with her lined face and history of playing critically acclaimed supporting roles. If you like British drama, both present and past, with a touch of mystery, I strongly recommend anything by Kate Morton.
Watching - DOWNTON ABBEY!!!! I am so excited! Yes, I'm just a big old nerd.
Listening to - My Beloved bang around in the kitchen as he does the dinner dishes.
Baking/Cooking - Tonight was a greek-inspired pork roast with mashed taters, mixed vegetables, and yorkies. Was very yummy!
Happy you accomplished this week - Ummmm... not a whole lot. I'm rather behind on my to dos from last week.
Looking forward to next week - Working up my nerve to start working on potty training again with Miss Ginevra. I know it shouldn't be this daunting, and yet it is.
What is the minimum # you feel comfortable with sitting in your bank account/piggy bank? - This of course would presume that we have savings, which we honestly don't. I would love it if we could get to a point where we had a couple of thousand in the bank.
