A Week in Review (November 15-21)

A Week in Review (November 15-21)

Watched: The Broncos lose horribly to the Chiefs. I couldn't believe that Peyton threw four picks in the game after setting the career high total. Ob the plus side, Nick was in a better mood than normal after the Chiefs game. 

Read: Go Set a Watchman. If Harper Lee only wanted to give one book to the world, I am glad it was To Kill a Mockingbird. Go Set a Watchman may shed light into the minds of southerners in the 60s.  There were several times that I really identified with Scout. It is so hard to know that your beliefs stand in direct opposition to those you love.  I hope that she comes to find peace with those differences.

Listened: To Jack's class act like a bunch of turkeys as they celebrated winning the pizza party for their pride cards. They also got to eat their way through a rainbow as the teacher had asked for parents to send in items with the different colors. It turned out really cute and I was sad I missed a pick. They had their feast so early because they get an entire week off for Thanksgiving. 

Made: And delivered cute little water bottles for our staff to thank them with their help with the Fall Festival. They were all very appreciative of the gesture.  It's always nice to bring a smile to someone's face. 

Felt: Out of sorts.  We had a huge snow!  It really ruined my plans for the day and it just put me in a funk. Plus, there was a lot of snow to shovel. We ended up with about a 2.5 foot drift in our driveway of very wet snow. Nick was able to get to work, so I had to shovel it myself. If snow blowers were compact, it would be on my Christmas list!

Planned: To go buy a Jackfruit to make some pulled pork type meal for Thanksgiving for them. When I got to the Asian market, I was blown away by their size and smell. I went ahead and bought a quarter of a ripe one, but it just didn't seem right. So I went back out to my car and googled a recipe. Turns out you need young jackfruit to make it. So I went back into the store and bought a couple cans. I'm interested to see how it turns out. 

Loved: Having a friend who isn't afraid of heights!  He brought over his extension ladder and got some of the dart tips that were stuck inside the skylights, installed bulbs in the light that can't be reached with even our 8 foot ladder, and hung Christmas lights over the roof of our house. I am just totally in love with the way it looks. It was such a nice treat. 

Here are the pics for the week:
