For those who celebrated, Thanksgiving is now behind us. I have cooked the meal so many times that it’s second nature but I was not feeling it once the meal was ready. Does that happen to you? My appetite completely vanished. We had high winds and Edison kept texting me saying our power could go out. Luckily, it did not but it was a little nerve-wracking.
My son came for Thanksgiving but had to leave that night because he had some school projects to finish. We had a good time watching movies though. Overall, it was a really good time but it did feel different.
Saturday we put the tree and lights up. We decorated sparsely since much of our home is being used for virtual auditions but it’s fine this year. Everything seems like it’s taking a lot of effort and we are heading into another shutdown so simple is fine and will have to do.
Not doing much. I have youth group on Zoom later and nothing planned before then. All sorts of online deals still happening but I am not in the mood to buy anything. I am always tempted by the books though. Like I need more. Ha. Here we go, right into the Christmas season.
My daughter’s Juilliard audition is this weekend. Good thoughts and/or prayers appreciated.
I return to work on Wednesday, remotely. Why do vacations go by so quickly? I don’t have long to go before I am off again though. Gotta use that vacation time up.
I am reading Parable of the Sower. It’s very good.
We watched all sorts of movies these last few days and a few episodes of Season 3 of The Crown. Bohemian Rhapsody, was quite good.
- That my son was able to spend the day with us.
- This time off I’ve had. I really needed it. Extra naps and no schedule made for a nice week.
- Walks with the pup continue to be the highlight of my day.
I wrote this post from my phone because I dismantled my workstation so we could use the dining room for dinner the other night. This picture of our tree should be above but I can’t fix it on my phone.
Hope you had a great weekend. What’s new with you?
