This and That




This week I've been a busy bee and am almost done with the painting in my guest bathroom. My cabinet doors need one more coat, as does a small table. Bathrooms are hard to paint and I had to be a contortionist in some spots, but it looks like I imagined and I can't wait to see everything come together.



The season finale of Home Fires was this past Sunday and I love everything about this show. There is going to be a second season and that makes me very happy. The finale left a lot of story lines up in the air and it will be interesting to see how the village copes as the war progresses.



We will be tailgating on Saturday and I will definitely be breaking out all my cold weather gear. My brother in law has informed us we will have a heater, a fire pit and sides on the tent, so we should be fine, even if it is cold. The Salted Caramel Vodka Hot Chocolate I am taking in a big thermos, should help keep me warm too. After MSU's heartbreaking loss at Nebraska last week, we will need to get back to our winning ways and I plan on cheering as loud as I can.



Thanksgiving is in the back of my mind every day and I need to start making some plans. Next week I will start gathering paper products, some things for a centerpiece I have in mind and making my menu. The menu pretty much stays the same every year, but it still needs to be written down and a timeline prepared. I love hosting Thanksgiving, but it's definitely not a meal you can prepare at the last minute. And, the best thing about hosting - the fridge full of leftovers the next day.


Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Oh I just adore Home Fires! I watched the entire season over the course of a couple of days. I can't wait for the next season to start!

    I have a bag of cranberries in my freezer and I'm thinking I need to take them out and get them backed into something!

  2. Go State . . .
    I will be cheering with you. .
    Stay warm and toasty!

  3. Glad your bathroom is turning out the way you wanted it to! Oh, that vodka sounds unbelievable! Thanksgiving is the one meal I like to cook, but we'll be at my cousin's this year. Would you believe I'm bringing the turkey?

  4. I love making Thanksgiving dinner, too! I hope we will get to see your finished bathroom!!

  5. I l ove Home Fires and so glad to hear there will be another season. Happy your bathroom is turning out how you wanted it too...I love cooking and holidays are even more special to cook for.
