Let’s go back to Sunday afternoon. I usually do my Hello Monday post around lunchtime and then save whatever else I do on Sunday for my Friday Favorites – if it was in fact, a favorite.
Tom and I are trying to be home as much as possible for Ernie. So, I had a Sunday Funday plan with Elizabeth. She used to teach French next door to me but she moved on and is now in another field. I hadn’t seen her or talked to her for awhile so we were able to coordinate a time on Sunday afternoon. We met at The Reservoir and walked. It was super cold and it started raining and we were out.
We headed to a little hole in the wall The Dark Horse while is also a new restaurant called The Smokery. I want to take Tom back there for barbecue.
Then, we headed to Parlour and shared a beer flight.
We also got their breadsticks.
We had a great time and then I headed home to eat my Soup Sunday soup with Tom and watch Bad Sisters on Apple TV. We just finished it and really liked it!
Monday was food day in two of my classes. They voted for a Monday so they could cook on Sunday and it worked out great.
Ernie and I have walked each day after school and multiple times on the weekends.
After our Monday after school walk, Victoria came to see Ernie. She is a huge dog lover. We caught up over a Trader Joe’s baguette and red wine.
For dinner, I made a Thai peanut sauce bowl. I am really trying to perfect a peanut sauce. I love this flavor so much.
I filed my nails more rounded and did a normal polish mani using my Kur polish.
I got up Tuesday morning and was on my second cup of coffee before I realized it was a snow day! It was an old fashioned one with no digital work! It was due to ice on the road. I didn’t think it looked that bad when I looked out the window. So, I was up at the normal time and after Tom left for work I did a happy dance to be an adult with a free weekday!
I watched The Wedding Year in the morning (Jennifer loves a morning movie so I did like she said to do!)
I watched part of another movie, I caught up on lots of tv shows, I cooked myself breakfast and lunch, I made a Crumbl sugar cookie for one with a recipe I found. It was soooo good! I walked Ernie even though it was soooo cold. I finally left the house at 4:00 to go to Dollar Tree for a few things I had been needing.
We returned to school Wednesday and after Wednesday, the rest of the week is downhill in a good way!
Last weekend when I went to the library, I saw this book on the shelf again:
Along with this:
Is this a genre of books I don’t know about? We want to read about love stories involving bosses? No.thank.you!
One of the things I made on my snow day was buffalo chicken squares.
I love my new scarf that arrived this week and wore it right away!
Erica made blackened chicken tacos with mango salsa for our lunch at school on Wednesday:
I finally got a coffee cup warmer and I love it!
A little nap after a walk:
Ernie is doing great! He is acting totally normal now. I am so grateful and happy. I don’t know exactly what to make of it. I am wondering if the vet is wrong and what they saw was something else like a puncture from a bone or a stick. Or, is this just that the tumor is now stable and slow growing? I am debating calling the vet, but I also am scared to call the vet. We have been loving on this guy so much. He has just brought us so much fun and happiness in his 10 years.
Move over, Sharpie S Gel. I think I have a new favorite in these Tul pens. I got them on Amazon and they make me very happy. I like a clickable gel pen that is a fine to medium point.
I had a Wednesday afternoon outing with my friend Beth. We hadn’t seen each other in a few weeks and met at Napa for half price wine on Wednesday and their 4-6 happy hour.
They had a burger on their happy hour menu and it was incredible.
We sat by the window and the sun was so bright. We took silly sunglasses pictures.
It was a nice mid-week outing and I was home by 6:30 to hang with Tom and Ernie.
Yesterday I broke out the Carebear sweater:
We still have ice on our rain chain!
Ernie found a tennis ball behind the tennis center on our cold walk yesterday!
What were your favorites this week?
I hope you had many!
