Gabe and I Are Sick

It's been a tough week and a half with croup and flu. Gabe missed this whole week of preschool and now I am coming down with something. So thus no posts for awhile. Hopefully I'll feel up to posting after Christmas.

Everyone, have a Merry Christmas and Winter Solstice and whatever else this week!

Pic-a-day (5) The Temperature

Pic-a-day 5 the temperature. It was -2 around 8:45....too cold.


It was actually -2 when I took Gabe to preschool this morning. I wanted to take a picture but my fingers were too frozen! But anything below 70 is really just too cold...

A Reading Life (6) and Pic a Day in December (1st)

A Reading Life...hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict, and also inspired by Lisa at Lit and Life--Life: It Goes On...is a meme where we get to talk about other stuff we're doing in our lives along with reading!


Listening to:

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality. A very interesting bit of fan fiction. All about how a genius, aka Harry, makes sense of the magical world of witches and wizards, using the methods of rationality. It's informative, funny, and a bit disturbing all rolled into one. So far there are 98 podcast posts so far and I'm only on 18 or so....

Books Finished:

The Physics of Christmas by Roger Highfield (for my skeptic book club) and You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney. I'll get these reviews up soon! 

Reading:
  • Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
  • Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us About Sex, Diet, and How We Live by Marlene Zuk

Coming Up:

I have a cookie exchange party this weekend! But....I decided I can't actually cook so I bought a bunch of peppermint bark from Costco instead! lol. Hopefully, no one will be too mad with my laziness. Their peppermint bark is heavenly, so I don't think anyone will complain too much!

I want to make this with devoted hubby and Gabe this week as well:


Watching:

The Blacklist with James Spader. He is amazing! He really carries that show. No offense to the other actors but they just don't have quite his panache.

Homeland. I'm halfway through the first season and I am loving it! All fabulous actors in that one.

Making:

I made some amazing chicken crockpot and potatoes dish for my after Thanksgiving Friendsgiving stravaganza! 

I'll be making homemade ornaments and trying out some Christmas science experiments!

Grateful For:

A wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! We had a chill afternoon with my family up at my sister's place. Then we went to see a few friends and played Cards Against Humanity! (Best game ever, especially while tipsy ;))

The day after Thanksgiving we invited two sets of friends over and their kids and ate yummy pizza, ham and potatoes, chicken and potatoes, and whipped cheesecake, and sipped on yummy mulled wine and hard ciders while playing fantastic board games!

Looking Forward To:

Spending time with family and friends this month and trying out new recipes for drinks, breads, and soups! Watching holiday movies and singing cheesy holiday songs! It's a stressful but very rewarding month and look forward to it every year :)

Pictures:

This tree pic was my view from our couch. I'm trying to do a themed pic of the day all through December and December 1st is Your View Today:


The tree has been trimmed!
Our trimmed tree


Last hike before the cold and snow!
It's been relatively warm for the last couple of weeks so we took our last hike before it snows Tuesday!
