We haven't seen any rain since maybe October, I don't know but its been a while! We could use it so bring it on!
I slept well last night and today I have been doing housework and hanging pictures and such. Tomorrow I will be all done though and that is what I like. I think I'll even be done with shredding then. The SO will complete a few tasks this weekend but nothing major needs doing at this point. The kids will be with their Mom for Thanksgiving and we'll have them for Christmas and New Years since she'll be out of town so its a bit of a switch. She is leaving December 22nd-January 6th or so, she'll be back East and her family is there so she'll be fine. She is having Christmas and New Years with the 2 young ones on the 20th-21st of December and then they'll come home and be with us.
I went out to pick up my tea order earlier this afternoon so I have my plain red tea and it was the same brand as I had in Louisiana so I am majorly happy about that. The Cinnamon Orange I tried when I came in from the rain and it was quite good. I haven't tried the plain green yet but I'm sure its sufficient. I bought a British Breakfast 100 pack since I figured out that I much prefer that over Earl Grey! I found a Spring Black Cherry 200 pack as well so that completed my tea order and I don't have to do a Republic of Tea order now pretty much unless I want the Safari Sunset, Ginger Peach and Cardamon Cinnamon big bags. I think I may hold off for a few months on that order just to rotate and deplete my stock a little more.
My sister will drink my teas since I always have a wide variety on hand. I keep the regular Lipton tea bags on hand for her as well since she likes those best but she likes variety and the girls drink teas as well. She just texted me and said they would be here Monday afternoon sometime since the dental appointments were changed. I guess the girls get the whole week off for Thanksgiving. I surely never did but it was a 4 day weekend. Even my cousin in Illinois who is in 8th grade said they go to class Monday and Tuesday and have a 5 day weekend going on.
The cat was sleeping in the closet today on a box that had clothes on it so he was warm enough. The heat was on anyhow since it was a bit cooler today. We needed the rain though being in the desert and all. Last night he was racing all over the house being a cat. He does that sometimes but not every night thankfully.
I think I'm going down and seeing what is for dinner and watching the Saints and Falcons and finishing up everything later on~
