Things here in the hobbit-hole have been a little bit busy this weekend, partially because I had a completely unmotivated Friday. Blood donor clinic, grocery shopping (which I despise doing on a Saturday afternoon... but I can't blame anyone but myself for that), and the hairdresser for me yesterday. Walmart and Toy's R Us (for a replacement on a Christmas gift) for my Beloved today. Church for all of us this morning, too.
|All dressed up for church.|
|Pip, caught napping!|
Reading - The Changeling by Philippa Gregory. Only just started it late last night, but I think I'm going to like it. It's Gregory's first foray into young adult fiction. It's set in fifteenth century Italy, and so far I've just met the two main characters. I'm anticipating much intrigue and drama. Finished my re-read of Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts last night... stayed up much too late reading.
Watching - A documentary on one of the Queen's palaces (Holyroodhouse), and later Downton Abbey. I adore Sunday nights!
Listening to - My Beloved doing the dishes. All else is peaceful. Pippin's sleep issues seem like a thing of the past. (**knocking on wood**)
Baking/Cooking - Tonight was typical Sunday fare... a pork roast, mashed taters, veg, and yorkies. I'm excited to try making Toad In The Hole next week.
Happy you accomplished this week - Quite a few things actually. I was able to give blood! Hooray! My iron was nice and high, and I had no issues at the clinic. I got a haircut yesterday, my first since last April. Basically the same style, just three inches shorter. I placed an order for Ginny's winter coat and snowpants for next year (an awesome sale online at Please Mum. Paid $38 total for both... regular price was well over $100). And I did a fun craft project that, when framed, will be my mom's Christmas gift this year. I will post a picture of it later in the week.
Looking forward to next week - Making optometrist appointments for all four of us. My Beloved hasn't been for an eye exam since I've known him, I need a new rx, and the wee-lings need to have their first exams.
Thankful for today - My church family. A wee little man who seems to be his happy, well-rested, well-fed (have I mentioned that he'd been uninterested in solid food during the sleep issues?).
