Well, guys, I do not have much to talk about on this Monday! I did drink a lot of coffee but I did not have a single cocktail and I spent most of the weekend at my casa. What about you? Are you sticking closer to home these days?
I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and more right here.
Friday after I finished teaching I was tired! I laid down and napped a bit. Then, I decided to get my peppermint mocha shake (I got vanilla and chocolate for my other three people – do not worry!) and CFA for dinner for some of us and salmon and broccoli for others. I had salmon that I had been promising to cook for my son and it needed to happen soon.
We enjoyed our dinner and watched some telly together.
I decided to go watch some t.v. on my own in my room because I have not been enjoying my white tree lit up like I should. I got sucked into Virgin River on Netflix and now I am hooked! The acting of the mayor, Hope, is so bad, though. Everyone else is pretty good except some of the older women. Ha!
Saturday morning was coffee and lights. Notice there are still no ornaments on our pencil tree.
I decided it was time to tackle my closet. I moved all the shoes because I am hardly wearing any because I needed shelf space for the type of things I am wearing. It has already made life easier.
And, these are the hanging clothes I am wearing.
I keep a bag for donation and re-sell in my closet at all times. The trashbag is always donate and the Trader Joe bag is to take to Clothes Mentor next time I go. I have not gone in so long.
I finally got out to get a snickerdoodle latte and go get my library…
book bundle. I heard about this last week and I thought it was so cool. Our libraries are still closed. Why can we go to the mall but not the library? Why can we go to retailers but not the library? I understand not lingering, but I do not understand why people cannot wear a mask and browse around with a time limit. Also, they are quarantining the books for 7 days. Maybe you could write down what you want and not touch?
Anyway, you tell what kinds of books you like and a librarian picks you out a stack! Actually, the librarian called me to talk about what I like.
I had requested Beach Read and it was ready. I started it and it is so good!!!!!
I think the title does not fit the book so far – anyone read it and agree?
I also bought some wrapping paper and stocking stuffers at Walgreens. Mason went to a book store with a friend and Jack had virtual theatre class. Mason’s friend came back to our house and the three of them hung out and played some videogames. This is the first time we have had anyone in our house in a very long time. We asked about what he has been doing and he has been isolated as well.
I made chili for dinner and watched some more Virgin River. I read some more of Beach Read, too.
Sunday morning I hit the computer for some work. We are in the home stretch with two more weeks of school. I have one level writing digital children’s books in Spanish using all of the verb tenses and the other level doing artist presentations. I also have quizzes to make up and give and we are learning winter/holiday vocabulary in order to have a virtual conversation. I am feeling pretty good about ending 2020 academically. Our semester has 3 more weeks when we come back in January.
I also spent lots of time online shopping and my gifts are starting to roll in. I am done with all the grandparents and I really like what I got. Sorry I cannot tell you yet. Tom and I are trying to give each other a Master bath for Christmas but work has stalled. Plumbing was the next step but our plumber has Covid – he is getting better. I was fine to take a break from the work for that reason – believe me!
How was your weekend?
