Our Thanksgiving was good, but odd. Eating dinner at the nursing home with Nan was good. She had a much better day and remembered both my Mom & I this time. And while she didn't remember the boys, she still seemed to enjoy watching them.
Ronnie & I spent the rest of the week canning. Surprise, surprise. We butchered and canned the deer he shot last week and some sweet potatoes. They were on sale for $0.25 a pound when we were at Walmart so we picked up two boxes (80 pounds) worth. I told Ronnie that after this weekend, I'm just about sick of canning. I need a break.
This week we're getting back in the swing of full time school again. I'm well aware our lack of structure last week was all my fault. It's a good thing Ronnie isn't home with me all the time. I wouldn't get any work done. I know I'm a bit of a weirdo for always wanting to be with him, but I think I'm a good kind of weirdo. I'm also going to try to do a little bit of Christmas decorating each day and finish with putting the tree up on Saturday.
This week's menu is a lot of repeats from last week's good intentions. We ended up getting Colo's pizza as well as going out for Chinese last week. With all the canning, we ate a lot of sandwiches and breakfast for dinner. See, I told you I don't do any work when Ronnie's around!
Here's this weeks menu:
Monday: Ham, scalloped potatoes and carrots
Tuesday: Soup beans and cornbread.
Wednesday: Slow cooker cheesy chicken & rice
Thursday: Farmer's omelet, biscuits and fruit
Friday: Spaghetti & meatballs, salad
Saturday: Pizza night
Oh, wait. One more thing. This Friday is finally the Women of Faith Christmas simulcast at our church. You may remember I went to my first WOF event this Summer and loved it. Even though it's a simulcast and not live, I can't wait for this. Lisa Harper, Sheila Walsh, and Francis Chan are speaking and Kari Jobe is leading worship. Not to mention Point of Grace and all the other great people. If you're not doing anything this Friday, please come out. It's a free event and it's open to everyone. Grab a girlfriend and come on over to Trinity at 7pm.
I'd just love to see you there!
