Hello to new reader timba!
The usual. Plus some tingliness.
Harry Potter Day!
We're probably going this afternoon. Any other Atlantans going this afternoon?
I have 11 confirmed people. Dad insisted on an 18-to-20-pound turkey. I negotiated down to a 16-to-18-pound turkey, because dude, a 20-pounder will take forever to cook. I barely eat turkey. Elayna barely eats turkey. So Dad wants 20 pounds for 9 people. Dad's on crack.
Reason for size ranges: I order from Whole Foods. They totally prepare the turkey. You just have to take it out of the bag and put it in the oven. Meaning that I don't have to handle a corpse. Yay Whole Foods!
Hi, Tony's mom!
*is all shy again now*
Red chenille turtleneck, cuz baby, it's cold outside! Jeans, "honey sweet" panties, monkey socks.
I'm reading Woken Furies by Richard Morgan. Elayna is tearing her way through Narnia; she's almost done with The Horse and His Boy.
The Narnia books were the first thing I ever bought for her. At two months pregnant, I worked in a bookstore. I had a feeling she was a girl, but Just In Case, I didn't want to load up on "A Little Princess" and "The Secret Garden" with the little necklaces. Narnia, though.... whichever gender she turned out to be, I knew she'd love Narnia.
Thanksgiving grocery shopping and Harry Potter today.
Quiz Bowl and celebratory lunch (whether she wins or not - it takes courage to go up there!) tomorrow.
Girl Scouts on Sunday.
It is a very Elayna weekend.
