1. From breaking a century-old record for November snowfall last week to 50F and rain today – what a weather swing we’ve had here in west Michigan! I woke up to an uncommon sound for this time of year – the drip – drip – drip – of rain. Bizarre. But the coffee sure tastes good this morning.
2. Making the grocery list this morning, I realized we’re only a few days from Thanksgiving. It snuck up on me, again! I blame the Christmas ads and holiday music for the distraction. We’ll have our boys and grands – just the 6 of us – so it’s time to get out the cloth napkins, crystal bowls and decorations :). And, as youngest boy happily announced, this week marks the official start of Cheese ball season! For my recipe (and his favorite appetizer), click here for my Look No Further Cheese ball recipe.
3. I finally bought a tablet! No, not the AARP one, although that was tempting. HSN.com has a great deal on a 10″ tablet – in my color choice which was purple. It arrived Friday and I have been happily playing around with it ever since. For more on the deal, click here.
