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

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 MonsterChapter 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!

What are you listening to? What are you reading?
