This was a good week but very different than I thought it would be. I was hoping to slow down a bit and get a little caught up with some things while I was off work for the week. My youngest daughter was also home from school and she brought just about every article of clothing that she owns home to be washed. Laundry is a chore that I don’t mind doing but it did take some time.
My birthday was Monday and I did get some reading done that day. I went out to eat for dinner with both of my daughters, my daughter’s boyfriend, and my husband. On Wednesday, I did some cooking for the items that I needed to bring to my mom’s house for Thanksgiving. We had a nice meal with just a few people for Thanksgiving.
The rest of the week was a blur. We did some shopping, completed a few puzzles, and walked the dogs about 100 times. Today, we are hosting my husband’s family for their Thanksgiving gathering. My husband is one of 6 kids so finding a space big enough for everyone is a challenge. My garage is heated so we decided to pull the cars out and set up some tables so we can all eat together. I am trying to decide if it is weird to host an event in my garage or not. Oh well, I just hope it goes well.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
Do you remember that I had plans to get a lot of reading done while I was on vacation this past week? Well, that isn’t what happened. I finished 1 book in 9 days. I did enjoy Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish but I am disappointed that I didn’t get the chance to read more this past week.
I am still working on three books. If you count marking this as currently reading on Goodreads but not actually reading them working on them…lol. I am still at the 10% mark in The Sea King by C.L. Wilson because I didn’t pick it up at all this past week. I did listen to a bit of The Operator by Kim Harrison while doing some chores and am currently at 83% so I should be able to finish this one in the next couple of days. I have read exactly 2 chapters of Child of Mine by Karen Grey but am looking forward to really focusing on this one once my life returns to normal this week.
