If I can't have warm weather and/or travel, my favorite place to be is in my comfy (not a "let's swim in these" fashion statement) sweats, fuzzy socks, with a blanket on me. THIS is how I survive Indiana winters ... oh wait, we're still technically in "autumn." Ha!
I had today off, so in addition to a bunch of household items that needed to be addressed, I made dinner for my family. It was a combo of "I'm off work today, so why not?" + Dad's belated birthday dinner + "I really need to improve upon my cooking skills." I made this Pork Roast with Apples & Onions. I had a few minor issues, but they weren't anything that can't be fixed with practice. For dessert, Dad requested banana splits, so banana splits we ate! If he's 50, doesn't that mean I'm ... kinda old, too? Weird!
My little boy friend will be FIVE years old this week! Upon hearing the news, I promptly scooped him up, gave him 5 kisses, and then watched as he ran away. Seems like they catch onto that early in life. :-P
I took the Sassy Explorers down to Louisville for our trip called "The Princess & the Ponies." We had lunch at Rocky's, visited the Princess Diana exhibit at the Frazier History Museum, and toured the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs. Oh, and it was a gorgeous 72+ degrees (in NOVEMBER!). Great day. :)
I'd like to have a big, fluffy, cozy couch that is perfect for curling up on. You'd never ever get a neck ache from falling asleep on it, and you can always see the TV or person you're talking to from any position on the couch. Wouldn't that be fancy? I just don't have snuggle up-y couches/chairs right now. A shame, I know. Oh, while you're out picking up my fantasy furniture set, would you just go ahead and install a fireplace, too? Self-cleaning and refilling, of course. ;)
Today, a big group of adults and kids from my church went to Rascal's Fun Zone down in Whiteland. Between the 4 go kart tracks (2 inside and 2 outside), the mini bowling, the putt putt, the junk food, and the arcade games, I'm worn out! The girls had a great time though! :)
