I like this carnival over at Susanne‘s. I get to think about my five favorite things this past week….and what a busy week, thus my lack of blog posts. 😦
But I am thinking things should start to slow down next week. So in anticipation of a slower week, here are several relaxing moments I enjoyed this week.
#1 – I enjoyed a couple of good cups (well actually it was a styrofoam cup) of tea this week. I am not a big tea drinker, but I do savor a nice flavored tea in the fall and winter.
#2 – I put on a relaxing instrumental Christmas CD, cuddled under a warm blanket to read a book, and promptly fell asleep on the couch!
#3 – OK this qualifies as relaxing since it helped me out. I confess that I stopped at McD’s for dinner the other night. But let me give you the full story. I was coming home late from several different appointments, I was tired, and knew I would be rushed to get dinner on the table. So I stopped at our local McD’s and bought four .99 cent double cheeseburgers for a grand total of $4.24. I brought them home, added chips, carrots and apples and we had a nice dinner together. And I was pleased with the ease of dinner that night, and I didn’t spend a ton of money.
#4 – We had a nice visit with my dad, he came over and had dinner with us on Monday. That was another easy meal. I had bought ham steaks on sale, I had this wonderful Boars Head brown sugar ham glaze that I spread on the ham steaks. Baked the ham for a half hour, and you have the start of a wonderful dinner!
#5 -I had a great time in my classroom last Friday carving pumpkins with the students. The each loved having a chance to plunge into that pumpkin with those cool pumpkin cutters.
