My week was busy. Maybe a bit busier than I'd like, but not overwhelming. Here are a few of the blessings this week.
2. Two nights. Two nights in a row Little Sister slept through the night...or more likely just didn't come into our room. She wakes up and sneaks into our room during the night and sleeps (or not) on our floor. Little Sister is now THREE. If you are a long-time reader, you know she has always had problems sleeping. I haven't had a week of decent sleep since before I was pregnant with her. Though she doesn't talk when she comes into our room, I am an extremely light sleeper.
3. Slow cleaning. Slowly I've been cleaning the house. Did you see the post about how the "cleaning lady" came in her pajamas? Some days I just have to laugh at myself. There is little I can do without Little Sister's assistance.
4. CBS. I really appreciate Community Bible Study.
5. Leftovers. We ate a roasted chicken a few days (once with dumplings). I also doubled my meatloaf recipe so we could have it two nights this week. Leftovers make life so much easier!
I'm gearing up for 19 people for Thanksgiving. All but the five of us are coming from out of town. Some will sleep here and the rest will stay at a hotel, but we'll have the whole day together.
I'm also thinking about Christmas and thinking of continuing the Less-Stressed Christmas series. Have you seen Minted's art collection? I would certainly love a gift like this. Consider checking them out for photo gifts, stationary, and art.
What have you been up to? Even if you are having a difficult week, I hope you'll find blessings in it. I'm linking up with Susan at Friday Fave Five.
