Today is the first day of December, the first day of Advent. The weather, after briefly warming up Tuesday and Wednesday, has dropped down to winter temperatures. Tomorrow, I will be putting up the last of my curtains to keep it out. With the help of a couple friends.

I had a nice Thanksgiving weekend with the puppy. Watched a very good, very hard fought football game between UofM and OSU, on an actual TV and everything (usually, I’m seeing the poorly broadcast Gamecast on ESPN). I also got my haircut in preparation for my interview tomorrow (good thoughts, please). Not a very Good picture, but here’s what it looks like:

New Hair Cut

This weekend looks to be a quiet affair. Possibly going to watch people bowl tomorrow night. And I’ve borrowed some Lego Harry Potter Wii games from the library. 😉

I’m a good bit into Cursor’s Fury by Butcher, and I got Harm None by Sellars from Audible to listen to next. New D&D campaign has begun in a haunted puzzle house, so that was a really fun start this week.

The holiday season is fully upon us, and I’m still trying to decide about decorating.

Went to see my brother and his three kids this weekend. Sis-in-Law is out of town most of this month for a trial. So, Rich and I went up Sunday morning to let people get out of the house to help out a church. We played pool and Legos and an Angry Bird card game. Then we ordered pizza and watch a bunch of Pink Panther, and the Barbie version of The Three Musketeers. I napped most of the afternoon while the kids all played with toys and tablets. We had a great time playing the kids, they were very well behaved while Pete was out.

Monday was a shopping day for me. Nationwide decided on my settlement for the car accident, and I used my part of it to get work clothes and a new laptop so I could give the borrowed netbook back. It’s a shiny new 15.6″ Asus, this time with warranty including accidental damage.

Still no luck on the job search front for Rich. Lots of possibilities, waiting on call backs. Lots of work and hours for me, training up the new folks to help out with the heavy stuff. I really appreciated it this week. Step by step, we’re getting holiday setup going. Can hardly wait until it’s done.

This weekend friends are getting married and the Halloween parties begin. I think I will be attending four. Busy seasons.
