Sunday Check List – I survived!!!

Good morning!  I am home and so happy to be here and have a pretty mellow day ahead of me.  A much-needed mellow day. :D  I just came off a week of Monday – small group study, Tuesday – Book Club, Wednesday – help with students, Thursday – Pampered Chef Party and opening night showing on Breaking Dawn 2, Friday – left for St Paul for the Literacy Institute which went until Saturday at 3 pm then drove home and arrived around 6:00 pm at my door.

This week is way less busy.  Yes, it is Thanksgiving week but it will be College Son coming home and our traditions are have a nice dinner then we dish up throughout the day whenever we are hungry and watch movies and play board games.  I ♥ LOVE ♥ our traditions and really look forward to them. 

As for today…

I am reading Forgotten Road by Randall Arthur

 

I am listening to Steve Jobs (yes still…) on my IPOD, finishing up Abraham on my CD player and still listening to The Quilters Homecoming in my car.

 

I am planning a possible lunch date with a friend who is in town for the weekend and possibly helping the library decorate this afternoon for Christmas.

 

I am hoping I can keep the next 5 weeks a little mellower.

 

I am working on finishing up my challenge updates and some fun discussion posts, and putting life and posts back into Kickin It (my neglected fitness blog).

 

I am looking forward to a meeting on Tuesday afternoon that is going to lead to my winter project (more later) and a nice weekend with one of my sons.  :D

 

Here are the books that graced my home this week:

That is it.  On with my day, what id your plan for today?

  1. Good luck with keeping the next 5 weeks more mellow! Enjoy your son this week!

  2. Your Thanksgiving plans sound like a lot of fun! I hope that you have a fantastic week.

  3. That sounds like a pretty busy week! I hope you get some more “me” time soon :)

  4. I do love special holiday traditions…mine keep changing, though. For years, we had Thanksgiving with my daughter’s in-laws (so much fun!); but now the divorce has changed that. Sigh.

    But my life has been all about reinventing myself, including my traditions. One that remains: meeting two days after Thanksgiving with kids and grandkids at a restaurant.

    Enjoy your week!

  5. Sounds like a great family tradition and I’m sure you can’t wait for your family to be together!! Have a great and relaxing week…Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. You expect the holiday weeks to be mellow? lol It always ends up a little more hectic than expected. I know what you mean though. I have a small family and try to keep things low key and a bit fun. If I could escape to a warm island for that last week before Christmas… I would!

  7. Your family tradition sounds wonderful! I’ve had a weird day. Blog snafus, laptop problems, and tendinitis acting up so can only type one handed. Had a nice visit with my in-laws though.

  8. I hope that you have a mellow rest of the year-that sounds so delightful to me. friends did an 80 mile ride today and I thought better of it.

  9. nice! i’m glad you’re having a mellow day. i’m hoping for one tomorrow!
