Hi Everyone!

It seems like I was just saying "can't believe it's the end of September"
and
now it's the end of November! 

What's going on this week? 
Anyone decorating for Christmas yet
and
if so what are you doing?
(pls picture that sentence in red & green)

Have a wonderful & above all a healthy week.

Pls join us in the SB Healthy Me folder if you have time ;O)

For me:
-  heading out (quick trip) to the garden shop to buy ribbon for the wreath I will make this afternoon (front door). Dh and I bought an evergreen wreath on Saturday downtown at the farmer's market and I'll decorate that as I do each year. 

Cleaning lady arrives this afternoon.
The rest of the week is free and I have to rest .   I do hope to buy all the stocking stuffers this week sometime and a few things for Mike's "Nickolas Sack" for St Nick's Day on the 6th (german tradition).   I will hang it on their apartment door as a surprise on that day.

Other than that I'm not decorating at all until after the 17th of Dec.  I did see fresh xmas trees up for sale already.    That can wait.    I will be buying a few big pointsettas (I love them), maybe even today if I ever get going LOL

gotta run... have a great week!

Editing to say that I started out to the garden shop but only got about 10 minutes into town and had to rush home,, my stomach virus is back....oh Lordy  YUCK  . So I'm here on the couch with a shawl over my tummy and shoulders reading my book. I couldn't hold my lunch down (all 3 forkfuls of cooked plain noodles).   Hate this.  I'll try to drink some light black tea (no sugar) and see how that goes.....   my dh will be sad when he gets home.

Well, I posted about my weekend in the weekend thread, so I'll just concentrate on the week ahead.

Tom dragged himself to work today, I know he's still not feeling good, but he won't miss a day of work!  I've got a radiation treatment to go to this morning and then need to do the bills and run a few errands. I'm washing all the sheets in the house today, lol, as well as all the usual laundry. I think that'll just about wipe me out for the day.

Tomorrow I have my last radiation treatment (hope it worked!) and I have to get a blood test done for my other doc, whom I'll see next week. The blood test could wait till Wednesday, I suppose. I'll see how I feel about it tomorrow, lol.

Wednesday through Friday look open. Not sure what will come up to fill them.

I haven't done any decorating yet. We'll probably put the tree up and decorate the house next Saturday and/or Sunday.

That stomach virus is everywhere! Riley, Tom, Colleen, Brian and Brian's mother all caught it in the past week! So far I haven't been hit (crossing my fingers I won't be!). Take it easy and try eating bananas, applesauce and dry toast. That worked to get Riley feeling better. That is if you like bananas, applesauce and toast!

Not too much going on this week....

Monday...stayed home and relaxed, finished Cmas decorating, watched a movie and played online.

Tuesday...My TOPS meeting that evening and it's not going to be a good weigh-in. I enjoyed the holiday dinners way too much! ;)

Wednesday...We might drive around and look at Cmas lights. There's a house here with a bazillions lights on it that "dance" to sycronized music.

Thursday - Saturday...No particular plans yet except getting my nails done Friday. I think we might go to the movie theater to see Breaking Dawn 2 or maybe Lincoln.

Sunday...Church will be extra good as we'll be having our annual Stan Kenton Brass Christmas performance for the entire service. That evening we're going to my oldest DGD's (age 15) Dance Showcase. She's the one who is a dancer like on DWTS. The Showcase is where they perform for family & friends at our beautiful Boat House where there will also be dinner served.

That's my stuff so far!! Have a good week everyone!!

Suzan...Oh, no, you're sick again!! Glad you at least made it back home again before "it" happened!! Nuf of this stuff now, get well!! You must be losing weight with as little as you're able to eat. Heck of a way to diet!! ;)

Mike's "Nicholas Sack" sounds like a fun tradition! Why no decorating until the 17th? Why is that the magic number?

Glad you mentioned pointsettas. I was trying to decide what to put on my dining table this year. Poinsetta plant it will be!!
