December really feels like it is here now. It has been cold!! Biking season officially over and that means this:
Inside trainers – pointed at the TV we moved from our bedroom. We swapped out the tires on our bikes to prevent all the flat tires that we had this last season. Apparently the trainer will cause the tires to become misshapen, which will create more problems with the tubes. Solution? Replace our good tires with the old ones during the winter.
I also had to pay for John’s football meal. For some reason, he chose 99, which is at the mall. Going to the mall on a Saturday in December is not something we *ever* do, but there you go.
Soup and salad for me. It was really good. The Jammin’ Crab soup.
We also scored some good bargains. I can see why people go to the mall at this time of year. I needed some new luggage for our trip to Disney in January. This was on sale at TJ Maxx. It’s a Samsonite!
Marked down to $49 from the TJ Maxx price of $69, which was also marked down from the regular retail. Go me! It’s the year of the bargain for us.
I have been working on my lesson plan for my literacy learner. We have started reading The Giver.
Sort of a Utopian society kind of book. The story of Jonas and his realization that the perfect society isn’t.
Time also spent at the library. I think these 2 books show why I am a Gemini.
Spent some time laughing at the Google Analytics of my blog. Some of my favorite keyword searches:
– Addicted to oats: This came up a lot!
– food for happiness : yay!
– overeat at Golden Corral. I don’t go there very often.
– beautiful bowl for feet. Ummm… okay?
– Candy corn –
– he won’t remember what I said anyway: LOL! Right, John?
– I love thanksgiving it’s the one day that big thighs are good. I guess…
– lifting is fun: Yes, yes it is!
– moldy waffle. Ewwww. Nasty!
– too much cream cheese on the bagel: Is that even possible??
If you have a google account, you can get the analytics code to put into your blog to track this stuff. It’s fun!
We did get some good football time in. Pixie also loves football time and John’s lap.
I also did a little too much eating. I did great eating all last week, but this weekend – not so great. The food was all tasty, though. I made these meatless/grain free meatballs, which I will post the recipe for.
Now it’s time for guitar practice and more relaxing!
Have you ever read The Giver?
