We haven't done much outside the house this week. I love just staying in and not doing much. I bought a can of sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Well, Lena found my marshmallows, lit my candle and.....
my sweet baby started "roasting" marshmallows....
Since that phone call last week I have been pretty blah. There have been some days where I don't dwell on it...and there have been days that I can't stop crying. The one thing that does make me feel better is walking. I have been walking so much it's crazy!! It clears my head and just makes me feel so much better. Tonight I was trying to clear out some of my jeans that don't fit to make some free space in my closet. Well, I immediately took out three pair that I knew it was hopeless to even try on. I hadn't been able to even zip them up a few months ago. Today they fit. They fit nicely too! That sure felt good!! I just wish it wasn't because of the bad news we received. In relation to that news, I created a resume for Papa Bear and filled out a couple of job applications for him. I could not figure out why in the world they hadn't called. When he filled out an application with this company a few years back he heard a positive response with in a few days. So of course as each day passed and no email or call from them I was even more and more depressed. He asked me last night if I was sure I completed it the correct way as he hadn't even received a confirmation email. I went back and checked and smart April never pressed "submit!" I really need to get my head together!
Tonight I made soup. Papa Bear wanted a simple soup so it only has beef mixed with turkey meatballs, rice, potatoes and mushrooms. My goodness it's delicious!! I also picked up some French Artisan bread this morning. Perfect for this cool afternoon!!
It's supposed to freeze and I covered my roses. I never expected it to freeze this early so I'm not even prepared for winter care for the roses. I need to research it.
That's about it for me. Nothing exciting happening here. But it's ok. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week!! That's crazy! What plans do you have? How early do you start traveling out if you're visiting this year? We usually leave the day of...I honestly find it is much less traffic that way!
And by the way... this whole post I spelled "marshmallow" with an "e" as "marshmellow." I kept getting it highlighted in spell check...so I checked the bag and sure enough, it's spelled with an "a." The girls are loving talking about marsh maaaalllows!!
