Today I am thankful for lazy days. I was able to get some things done that I haven’t been able to get done in a little while since K has been sick. I also was able to get some cooking done for tomorrow’s Christmas party for the Olson’s get together. Not a lot of goodies but a few things that I will be taking. Got the soup going. I need to remember to pick up bowls tomorrow. Remember to write a HUGE STICKY NOTE for me to remember to pick them up before I leave town tomorrow. It’s gonna be “180 below” zero tomorrow, yes, I am exaggerating. It’s gonna be the coldest day yet this season. And it happens to be on the day we are driving to Iowa. Go figure. Just our luck. I have my cake in the fridge. I am debating whether to poke the holes in it tonight and put the sweetened condensed milk on it or wait til morning. I think I will wait til morning. I don’t want it to get all soggy and gross. So yeah. Might poke the holes tonight tho. Just for the fun of it. LOL The cheeseball is done and in the fridge. The crackers are in the bag along with the noodles for the soup that need to be put in when I get to Carpenter tomorrow. I hope the soup doesn’t spill on the way there. I have this funky new stretchy cord thing for my crock pot lid that is supposed to hold the lid on tight. i hope it works. we’ll see. i will bring some towels along with and lay them on the floor of the car just in case. never trust soup. LOL
I wrapped a few gifts today as well. not too many, just a few. The tree is up from being bored while K was sick this past week. My cards are mostly done, addressed and ready. But no stamps cuz I have no money to buy the stamps as of yet. Still waiting for my travel check to get here. It’ll probably come tomorrow when I am not here. Go figure. I think I have most everything ready for our trip south to Iowa tomorrow. Bingo gifts ready and bagged. Dry food stuff bagged. I just need to jump in the shower in the morning, eat breakfast. Get the soup ready to go in the car. Warm up the car. Get the cake done and chilled. Cheese ball in the bag. K up and going. Her DS ready to go. The kindle is off limits for the weekend.
Time for this tired momma to hit the hay. Thankful for lazy days indeed.
