When it’s freezing cold out…especially the first week of freezing cold temps…I yearn to stay in. That’s exactly what we did this week…our week was low key…really low key…it couldn’t be more low key. Weird things happened, too…Den’s computer stopped working. Three pairs of Uggs booties were delivered here…only one was actually ordered. Lucy was locked in a bedroom for an hour…we could not find her anywhere. The reason she was locked in was because we have clothes in every closet in our house…Den went into a guest room to get “church” pants…for an early Mass…Lucy followed him in…Roxie and I fell asleep and did not hear her cries, howls, yowls and we are lucky nothing bad happened! She didn’t get out until Den got home over an hour later! By then she was a very irate kitty…
No clue what this was until we saw someone order it as a side on a Bravo show. Along with Mac And Cheese.
Research led me to these…
In Pennsylvania Mac And Cheese is always presented with Stewed Tomatoes on the side…we have come to love this combination…so I am going to try this soon! I am not sure about all of that sugar, though. I may cut it in half.
So…Den is out on another quest. He is determined to get Lettie’s Fried Chicken for dinner. He is bundled up and braced for the cold…and on a chicken run!
Here is what I don’t have…a list of my fave books, a fave word, a special book chosen just for 2018…nor do I have any resolutions or revolutions. I just want to be healthy…read what I want…and push myself more rather than falling back on my “ I just had chemo I am so tired” cry. In other words I hope to “man up”…I still love my blog…I still love what I read…I still don’t mind reviewing. But I need to do it all my way. I don’t really do well with Challenges or other blog stuff…I admire the people who enjoy them…but they are not for me…Heck…I can’t even stick to a pattern on my blog…but I am ok with that…I am hoping that you love me enough to put up with me. I need you!
What I am reading now and it is soooooo delicious….but I know it’s not going to end well…at all! Lie With Me…I think it’s a French translation and a big hot book in Europe…my copy came from the lovely publisher and NetGalley. Note the link!
Some new books for this new year…I may have posted some of these earlier because of course I don’t keep track…my bad!
Apparently some friends of mine from Kindergarten posted this photo of us in First Grade! Where’s Patty? Aren’t those boys in the front so cute? Louie, Jimmy, Nat and Billy! Look at the little dude in the suit in the back row! My friend Mary Jo…whose mom died…is in the middle row next to Ann McGeary…the girl with glasses who was our next door neighbor…I loved her!
Have a happy happy rest of the week and a lovely start to the year!
Oh…I couldn’t resist so I bought the newest Kindle Oasis for me and gave Den my older Oasis. So far it’s incredible…bigger, better, more book like. I love technology!
I love my cover!
