weekend roundup

Let’s see how I did:

  • Sleep very late – I woke up every day at my normal time, but boy did I ever take a nap yesterday, I fell asleep watching the Billie Piper version of Mansfield Park, and yes that does accurately describe my opinion of the movie.
  • Work on making Christmas gifts – I can’t post any finished products here, but I will show you a picture of some of the fabric that Jenn M. and I bought, it’s so cute!

  • Work on the adorable dress I am going to make for myself if I can fit it between Christmas projects – sadly I did not have time for this, I will just eye the fabric until I have time to get to it.
  • See Beowulf – mission accomplished, it’s totally awesome, I started my review but it got too long and disjointed to finish today so I’ll post it later.
  • See The Darjeeling LimitedCouldn’t quite fit this one in, maybe one night this week instead.
  • Watch the Battlestar webisodes so I’ll be ready to watch Razor on the 24thDone!
  • Finally finish Good Omens – not quite. I’ve been falling behind on my reading since my internet connection was ressurected.
  • Take my dog hiking – ok, I totally planned to do this, but I got stuck babysitting my mom’s puppy. This thing is as cute as any dog I’ve ever seen and I’m sure it would have loved to go, but since its legs are about 2 inches long I don’t think it would have done well on a hike. Mom is still undecided about what to name her, any suggestions?

  • Give my dog a bathSo done. She needed it big time, though I couldn’t convince her of that. Let me tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve chased a 50lb, sopping wet border collie(?)/English shepherd(?) around the house after she’s escaped from the tub.

    She’s moped ever since, you’d think I tried to kill her or something.

  • Hold my nephew. He is so cute! – No, sadly, but I’ll see him Thursday I hope.
  • Buy supplies for the things I will be making for Thanksgiving. – I made two pumpkin cheesecakes tonight since I need one for my work potluck tomorrow as well as one for our family dinner. Behold:

Ok, I admit this post was just an elaborate excuse to post a picture of my pretty, pretty cheesecakes, but can you blame me?
