Not much to report on my side this week. Finally got all caught up with blog and got the wheels turning on a project I’ve been dreaming about for a couple of years now. I won’t know anything definitely for a few weeks, but let’s just say I’m in the “getting excited and making things” stage. Also, I made THE most incredible enchilada soup in my slow cooker that even Rick can’t get enough of. He’s already requested it again for next week.
This weekend will likely include brunch, finally setting up a pull list at my favourite comic book store and mornings catching up on Legend of Korra.
