After a rainy Saturday, I was glad to see a little sun today but it was still cool enough to feel like Fall. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cooked a turkey in 100 degree weather. I think our weather for Thursday is supposed to remain cool, but dry. Only time will tell.
I am off work this week and although I am cooking this Thursday (like always), no one is coming over. It’s just us! We plan to watch movies, eat, read and maybe play some games. My daughter is off from school but my son is not so she and I will be putting the meal together over the next couple of days. My challenge this year is trying to come up with the cornbread dressing recipe that my husband’s grandmother took to her grave. Last year I came close but the texture was all wrong. I think I used too many eggs.
With this week comes more shopping. I hate to admit it but I am getting tired of buying stuff. Except for books. I have no problem buying those so I’ve been buying lots as gifts. The only problem is that whenever I buy one for someone, I also buy one for myself. Personally, I think there is no better gift than a book. I just wish I’d stick to buying them for others. It’s not like I’m short of reads.
Speaking of reads, I just finished the third book I was reading. I was reading all three of them together and now that I finished the third I feel a bit lost. I will probably work on the reviews tomorrow, but right now, my brain is not willing to write anything about them. I am still thinking about all three of them. All three were good but oh so different from one another. I feel a bit jerky, like Elaine, when she tried to dance in that Seinfeld episode.
As for today, I spent the day watching football, eating some pizza and catching-up on my Kindle reading. I am slowly working my way through various books on the Kindle. I find that I do not read quickly on the Kindle. Not nearly as fast as I do with an actual book. I’m not sure why. The fonts are smallish but maybe since their aren’t any page numbers I don’t push myself to a particular number. Not sure.
Anyway, hope you all had a nice day. Oh! Don’t forget to buy and defrost your turkey. I had a nightmare that I did just that so as a public service announcement, I am reminding you all to do it too.
I’m off to watch Elf. Such a cute movie. Did you know that I have a Buddy doll?
