After last Friday's snow, it pretty much went away and I saw sun once this week. Then yesterday it snowed during the afternoon and covered the ground. Then over night a winter wonderland occured. I can appreciate the beauty of the snow on the trees but I'm already over the ugly slushy crap. I shoveled this morning and then came in to enjoy a hot cup of coffee while looking out at the snow. My favorite way to enjoy this crappy season. Also, if I see one more meme telling me how I should find joy in the snow or I will have less joy in my life I'm going to show them where they can shove their MLM side hustle. :)
My favorite picture from the week:
She was excited to find a unicorn tree!
The high of my week was watching my girl at swim lessons this week. She's doing so well. I hope it's something she will keep liking and enjoy doing.
The low of my week was the constant cold feeling that stays with me from late October to mid-April. Why do I live here? See also - my favorite past time is to look for vacations or lake homes.
Meal plan for the week was
Monday - Beef Enchiladas, and Spanish Rice
Tuesday - leftover enchiladas and spanish rice and a salad
Wednesday - we went out for a wings/beer special and also split a bbq flatbread
Thursday - Cheese Ravioli and roasted broccoli and cauliflower
Friday - Shrimp in Hoisin Sauce
We hadn't made enchiladas in awhile and they were delicious! I am going to need to make chicken ones soon.
What I’m listening to Christmas music and podcasts. My favorite listens of the week were Episode 2 of Atlanta Monster , Chapter 2 The Change from The Wilderness Podcast and Annotated's episode The Patron Saint of Libraries.
What I’m watching Blackish! I only have 2 epsiodes left in season 2!
What I’m reading: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin . I need to finish that this weekend because I got Tony's Wife by Adriana Trigiani in the mail and I can't wait to read that!
My plans for the weekend include we have ideas for tomorrow but no firm plans. It basically depends on weather and a few outside factors. We are thinking about attending the Santa Parade and/or the last weekend of the season for our favorite local cider tasting room. We will watch football and we may or may not have people over tomorrow night since a friend is in town. Sunday we have a funeral and visitation that will take up most of our day. Tonight we will probably do a friday night date night at home movie again. Debating between a Hallmark Christmas movie or Fiddler on the Roof. It's my night to pick!
