What up, bloggies?! 

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was busy, but pretty darn yummy! Two families, two meals...more than one pie! Ha!

Along with completing a bunch of errands, this week of vacation was spent rekindling old hobbies. I pulled out some knitting stuff and played around a bit. I've yet to EVER complete a project, but what the heck, fiddling is fun.  I also dragged out my guitar, which I haven't played I years. I still play terribly, I just CANNOT strum to save my life!  Anyone play and have THE magic trick? Regardless, I had a good time pretending.

Also, hubby and I finally went out and bought a crock pot. Now, let's be clear...I am a terrible cook. Seriously, I burn water!  The agreement is that he cooks and I clean! But, I've been imagining opening the freezer, pulling out a plastic bag of goodies,  tossing it in the pot, and surprise...delicious, hot dinner when I get home from work. This week I tried a beef stew, corned beef and cabbage, and spinach lasagne. Let's just say that cooking is a learned skill. Honestly, nothing was terrible, but none of it was amazing either. Let's hope it gets better. Then I just need to teach hubby how to use the vacuum, ha!

Books and Blogging

I am still reading Everything is Perfect When You're A Liar by Kelly Oxford. I expected to read more this week, but just never got to it much because of being too busy (yeh, watching TV perhaps). This weekend I also started Moby Dick. I am constantly on myself to read more classics and figured, I've got to start somewhere! I figure if I read a chapter a day, I will eventually get through it. Right?!

One chapter down...

What about you, what are you challenging yourself to this month?!
