27 Nov

I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving.  Not that we celebrate Thanksgiving over here, but I still do.  I don’t make a turkey because they are pretty expensive to get a whole bird and they always end up being pretty dry anyway.  I just get a chicken and roast it instead.  Chicken goes just fine with cranberry sauce and I’ve perfected the art of roasting a chicken.  It’s only taken me about 5 years.

Pumpkin pie will be made from scratch (as in no can of pumpkin, they don’t sell that here), with a wholemeal pie crust.  Yum….drooling already.  I do love me some pumpkin pie.

You’d think I now have plenty of time for relaxing, reading, and writing blogs now that I’m finished with university for the year, but I always manage to find plenty of work to do.  Thursday I cleaned out our room, mowed the lawn, mulched some pot plants, and cleaned the toilet, in addition to about 12 other things on my self made to do list for the day.  Yesterday I cleaned out the spare room wrapped all the Christmas presents I have so far, and finished some other secret Christmas business that I can’t tell you about because the recipients read my blog.


I have grand plans to finish my book this summer too, but as yet, I haven’t even looked at it.  I’ve only been working on it since I was pregnant with Daniel.  It is, after all, a pregnancy book.  It’s written, I’m just in the editing and illustration stages, which also take a lot of time.

One day I’ll get there.  One day it will be totally finished and I can put it on Amazon as an ebook.

Anyway, it’s 6am, which means the kids will be bounding out of their room any second, wanting cuddles, gummy vitamins, and breakfast.

    Sheri, you were so cute in that photo! It’s one of my favorites of you. To bad you had to grow up and move so far away. I miss my little “Frog Eyes” girl who loved playing with frogs and being a kid model for dad, for whom you had wrapped around your little pinky finger. Go Sheri!

      I did know how to wrap you around my little finger…. Hahahahaha! Hannah does that with Aaron too. Guess she got it from me. I was a Daddy’s girl, and so is Hannah.

    You really ought to say “potted plant.” People who are not Aussies will think something you don’t mean when they see “pot plant!”

      Haha, I totally forgot that Americans don’t say pot plant. They are only plants in pots, not marijuana plants… That does remind me of a funny story though:

      When I was here the first time, Aaron’s friend forgot his house keys. We all went to his house and he said “It’s ok, we keep a spare key under the pot plant.” Hmmm…Maybe I should not share the story here, but make it into a post because it’s quite a funny story. To be continued….
