Denis and I had a fun weekend. Denis did a LOT of baking this weekend in preparation for our party on December 7. He made 3-4 different kinds of cookies (I only made one batch this weekend). Despite the heavy kitchen time we also manage to rent a couple movies from Blockbuster, go out to dinner on Saturday night, do laundry, rake leaves, and various other stuff.
Thankfully, this is a short work-week for both of us. Thursday and Friday are both holidays for us. YAY! I told Denis this morning that this is the last week of calm before a two or three week blitz of activity. It all starts this Friday when we have an ob/gyn appointment, a vet appointment, a house cleaning service, and finally we have to decorate the house for Christmas. Major work weekend coming up!
The best part of the weekend was spending mucho hours in front of the tv watching the extended DVD of Lord of the Rings. An early Christmas present from Mare-Bear, I watched the full movie, then the full movie with cast commentary, then a bunch of the documentaries. It was heavenly.
