This & That

Photo from We heart it.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next Thursday? We are getting ready to host at our house again this year. It will be a short week, next week. Tara has school Monday & Tuesday & then is off for the rest of the week. It looks like it might snow on Wednesday & we might have some friends come over. I feel like I might be getting a cold. My nose has been stuffy & so itchy. I feel like I am breathing dust. My throat is scratchy. So I stayed in today & did some housework & caught up on a few shows on the dvr, "Vanderpump Rules" & "Housewives of Beverly Hills". I had a zinc & Emergen C drink. I'm going to stay in again tomorrow & rest up for the upcoming week. Our X-mas cards shipped this morning, so I will be working on those this week & mailing them out soonish. I'd like to wait until Dec. 1st to mail them out. I mail photo cards 1st & then regular cards once I run out. I need to get a few more gifts to mail out to friends in other states. I want to get them out early this year. So that is it for now. Hope you are all having a great weekend!!!

Nail Files. Week # 180

This week I changed my nails a few times. I wasn't really happy with my nails that I did a few days ago. I bought this China Glaze polish today & painted my nails tonight with it. It is called High Hopes. I saw someone post a pic of this polish on Instagram last weekend & went out & got it.

I switched my day to Tuesday, that I volunteer at the animal shelter. I walked this dog Lola today. She was so cute. It said that she was part poodle. She looked a lot like a sheep dog, I thought. I always loved sheep dogs. She kept rolling around & wanted me to rub her belly.

I went to visit the cats. I fell in love with this guy Mickey. He's 9 years od. He was so friendly & affectionate. His fur was so soft. I would love to take him home. I got this photo from the website.

New England Minute~Vermont

I went to Vermont this past weekend with some friends for a scrapbooking weekend. We got up there on Friday night & got a few pages done. 3 of us went up on Friday & 3 came up on Saturday. That night we went to the town Woodstock. It's become a tradition. They have cute shops & cool restaurants/bars. Some of my friends did some Christmas shopping. The weekend went way too fast.

7 years old is a crazy age. Tara is 7 now & she is like a mini-teenager. She's gotten so fresh & disrespectful. I'm not sure how to deal with this. She has been disrespectful for the past 4 years. So we really need to change things fast. I want to stop it before things get too bad & she is older. Any advice? If you have a girl around this age is she like that?

New glasses

So I finally got my new glasses. They are no line bi-focals. I HATE wearing glasses & I had eye surgery last year, but my eyes were so bad. Now they have gotten worse again. The doc said it's slightly worse, but it's enough for me to not be able to read street signs. I also can't read up close. So I got new glasses & will mostly wear them for reading & driving. When I'm at home I might wear them all the time. Just so annoying. They did tell me that I might have to wear reading glasses.

Time for Vermont again

Woodstock, Vermont. Photo via Pinterest.

So we are getting ready to go away to Vermont again this weekend for a Girl's scrapbooking weekend. I haven't had time to scrapbook/smashbook in a while. I'm so far behind. I really miss it because it relaxes me & helps rid stress. I have dance recital stuff from June, 4th of July & lots of other old stuff to be scrapbooked. I'm going to aim for 15 pages. I think my record is 27 pages in a weekend. So we'll see how much I can get done.

Mommy & Me Monday

Tara had off from school today. There is a Teacher's workshop. She has tomorrow off too for Veteran's Day. So we did some errands & then we stopped at a donut shop called Heavn'ly donuts & I got her a donut & we split a Vanilla freeze. Trying to keep her busy, so she doesn't get bored.

Linking up with Krystyn from "Really are you Serious"?
