The only thing about this time of year I hate- bad weather. Luckily, we've had pretty good weather so far, except for this weekend. It's still a gray and overcast day today, but it's not raining, and we'll finally be able to venture out to run some errands.
I'm out of eggs, and this is like a mini crisis for me. I can't do any baking, which is all I wanted to do yesterday, but there was no way I was going to bundle us up, struggle with an umbrella, get hit in the face with freezing wind and rain, to walk through a packed supermarket for a carton of eggs.
So we did some other things. :)
In an attempt to keep us busy and do something new, we had some art time yesterday.
Miss A was very interested in the little bottles of paint and wanted me to dump ALL the paint out onto her paper. After I hid all the bottles, she finally got to work making her masterpiece.
We watched Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas. She was very into it, refusing to give me her infamous "cheese" smile.
I made butternut squash soup from scratch, using this recipe, and it was so good! Miss A had some shredded chicken and carrots, but once she got a taste of my soup, she kept asking for more.
I'm hoping to get out of my funk this week and cherish the days before we find ourselves surrounded by friends and family, pulling us every which way. It's hard to do that sometimes, especially with my husband's current schedule. It feels like he's gone all day! I could definitely use some baby-free time, and some shopping-without-baby-time. There's only two shopping weeks left and I'm itching to be done. I'm ready for the holidays!
