Today has felt like THE longest day. This is partly due to the extreme cold in here. It’s 5-6 degrees colder than normal. WTF, FSU? You know, not too many straws left for this camel’s back.
There are still two days of University next week but this place is dead. I wonder what percentage of students go home today and just bail on their classes for next week. This year will be the first that staff are off entirely on Wednesday. I normally took it off anyway. Public school kids are off all week so that’s also new. And annoying.
I’ve started making a list of the items I need to complete Thanksgiving meal. I got a turkey last week – an eleven pounder for $5.50! – and I have other basics like elbow macaroni, milk, eggs, etc. I’m really looking forward to it, to be honest. I love making and eating this meal!
Though it was in the low 30s this morning, the next 10 days call for mid40s and a high of no more than 70. Sounds excellent! I also cannot wait to make a fire. The chimney guy comes out today to inspect and then, after purchasing a screen, we should be good to go.
I made chili last night and it was SO GOOD. Just what I wanted on a cold evening.
When our Costco closed their photo center, they sent me a 50 dollar credit to use online. It expires on the 30th and I finally got around to using it! I ordered some photo collages – one printed on metal! I will give it to Ash for Christmas.
I’m REALLY excited about our weekend with no pre-planned things. I have little things I want to accomplish and now, I can!
