1. Cooler temperatures. We finally had a couple of good hard freezes, so the crazy oak mites that have plagued us for months are gone, and all the pollen type stuff is cleaned out of the air for awhile. That makes me happy. Now I just need a day or two to get over the sinus issues from the too-fast weather change, and I'll be super happy.
2. Today I got in the mail my Great British Bake-Off coloring book. I am excited! I pre-ordered it and have been waiting for weeks for Amazon to get it in stock and send it my way. And I don't known when they started delivering packages on Sunday, but I love that! And in more Bake-Off news, The Great American Baking Show (the American spin-off starring the super-fabulous Mary Berry and our own Johnny Iuzzini) will be returning this December for another season. Can't wait!
3. Thanksgiving prep. My bf and I moved into a new place a little over a year ago, and we've become the holiday place. Personally, I love this. I love to cook a big meal and have everyone full and happy. I started planning a week ago, and we went shopping today to get almost everything we need to make a pretty traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner. I still have a lot of work to do to get everything ready, but since we did this pretty successfully last year, I feel a lot more confident. And this year, almost everyone in the family has been pretty healthy and happy, so there is a lot to be thankful for. Happy, healthy family eating good food makes me very happy, this week and every week. I hope you all enjoy your holiday as well!
