Daybook: November 7, 2011


Outside my window: the snow has all melted and it’s been in the 40’s or so lately. Right now it’s raining – boo. We’re hiding inside today anyway though as poor MM is not feeling well and stayed home from school today for the first time. Every three minutes or so I hear “COUGH HACK COUGH” mixed with Playhouse Disney while the kids rest.

I’ve got lots of arts and crafts projects to keep him from sitting around watching tv all day though. Earlier I printed out these cute Alphabet Mazes for him and we’re planning to make Turkey Doodle placemats later.

This weekend: we watched the new Winnie the Pooh movie together and I have to say, it was sooooo good. We are planning to buy it for the kids for Christmas because it is definitely worthy of repeat watching for years to come.

We also: took down the Halloween decorations and started putting up some basic fall decor in it’s place. Soon it will be Christmas decorations, but let’s not think about that right now, okay? One holiday at a time. :O)

Right now I’m reading: The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent and I’m like literally 10 or 20 pages away from finishing it – hoping to squeeze in some reading time this afternoon. When I finish it, I’ll be reading Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand for book club.

Are you writing a novel this month?So far I’ve written: an embarrassing 16740 words – yes I am falling behind quite a bit. I think this book is becoming too important to me for my own good! At least I am still enjoying it, but it’s been slow going. Anyone else writing a novel this month? Look for me on the NaNoWriMo site and we can be writing buddies!

Plans for this week: I’ve got Team Trivia tonight (woohoo!) and a few walking meetups scheduled this week. Wednesday afternoon I’m going shopping with a friend for jewelry making supplies for the Jewelry Making party I’m hosting next week. I’m hosting, she’s showing us all how to make pretty things – perfect deal, right? Throw in toddler story time on Tuesday, a coffee shop playdate on Thursday and a field trip for MM and it’s a pretty busy week!

A few more pictures to share before I go: BB and I had a mini photo shoot this weekend and she really could not have been more adorable. Here are three cute shots:

  1. Hope MM is feeling better! As usual Im way behind on commenting and here I am putting off homework. ;P
    I have to stay away from Pinterest until everything is done or it never will get done. I even had small thoughts in my head like ah who needs to finish school? …
    Do you you Google reader for a blog feed? Please say you do. Im not sure about this change. Im really not liking that it’s limited my acess to easy commenting..or am I missing a button somewhere? GAH technolgy love it or hate it.
