Thursday Thoughts

1. I've had a cold for 3.5 weeks. I am finally starting to be less congested in my nose. I'm using fewer tissues each day, but still more than usual. I am hoping this is my cold for the winter season, but something tells me I'll have at least one more 3-4 week long sickness before spring.

2. Our two dinner meals this week:
  • breaded pork chops, mustard roasted potatoes, and steamed green beans 
  • scrambled eggs with ham and colby cheese on toasted English muffins
3. Last weekend we started the Holiday Cookie Baking! We made my mom's favorite: Chocolate Dipped Crescents. SP & I sampled a few, I gave a dozen or so to mom, and the rest are in the freezer. These freeze well, so I'm OK making them early.

4. Tonight is the finale of Gracepoint. The people behind the show keep saying the killer will be different from the killer in the original (Broadchurch) but so far, everything has been exactly the same, so I'm doubting the killer will be different. I am wondering if I will cry like I did at the end of Broadchurch.

5. We've been watching The Newsroom and this Sunday is the final episode. I'll be sad to see it end. I always like Aaron Sorkin shows - I love his rapid-fire dialogue and that he doesn't dumb things down. However, I do feel as if this final 6 episode season has been not as good as the previous ones.

6. We continue to feel a bit guilty at laughing at Getting On. Some of the stuff they say/do... Maybe we'll finally be able to finish OITNB since we're caught up on our shows - even The Walking Dead which usually ends up stacked up and waiting for a holiday week binge. Plus, most shows are done with new episodes for a while.

7. We're looking forward to winter TV - Downton Abbey, Justified, The Americans. I can't wait to see how it ends for Raylan & Boyd!

8. This weekend and next week will involve lots of baking. I don't think we'll make as many cookies as usual, but I do have a list and we'll work our way through it. If some cookies remain unbaked, well, that's that. It's supposed to be fun, not a chore.

  1. My whole family had the 3+ week cold as well - it really wore us down and we still haven't completely recovered, I don't think. I'm hopeful we'll be able to avoid the flu this year - it sounds like a rough one.
