Friday fill in

1. The last band I saw live was......oh man, I sure it was some kind of Disney on Ice or the Wiggles. lovely, I really should get out more.

2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is.....being surrounded by my loud chaotic family, lots of kids, great food, wine. oh yeah, bring it on!

3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is .....a mere figment of my imagination. though i am starting to make a list of ideas.

4. Thoughts of Will fill my head. he wants to walk from the bus stop to the house all by himself!!!

5. I wish I could wear those wide leg long trouser pants....but when you are barely 5'3", you just look silly!

6. Bagpipes always make me cry...

7. As for the weekend, I am looking forward to taking Will to tae kwon do then pizza with the family, tomorrow my plans include a cut and color, and Sunday I want to ....take a wild honkin' guess: sleep in, baby!

time for soup and sandwiches

on winter nights when it seems like we are bouncing from school to ballet to tae kwon do and every where in between, i love to make soup.

on tonight's menu: roasted butternut squash and shallot soup. it is a simple three step process: roast, blend, simmer. this soup is so good! better than that, i can do everything but warm it up earlier in the day.

then we finally get home, warm it up, make some grilled cheese and dinner is served.

sunset in KY

as i write this at 7:43 pm, both kids are already fast asleep. daylight savings time has taken its toll on the kids.


as me!

this morning when the kids came in between 5-5:30, i was seriously wishing they had a snooze button on them. i can honestly say i would totally be the first one to bop them on the head for nine more minutes of sleep!

thankfully they didn't have school today. something called FDEA on the school calendar. i don't know what FDEA is, but I am ever so grateful for it.

Husband did have to get up to go to work, so he fed them breakfast. thank you Husband! whew to sleep in just a bit anyway.

happy monday, y'all
