Thrifted. Updates. Randoms.

1) Thrifted.
So, I clearly hit the jackpot this stop.  The store just received giant boxes of kids' books.  They told me to fill a bag for a dollar.  Goodness, all good, good books.  Some brand new. Too many to show you up close, but trust me...there's good ones.  Score.
Total $5.00

2) Updates

-My goal this week was to clean and tidy.  Great goal in theory, but what I take an hour to clean, Hurricane Audra can destroy in 2 minutes.  I feel like I have been spinning my wheels.  But the pantry is organized and the door is shut.  Small victories.
-I enjoyed having my family here for a week.  Although I'm sad they left before Thanksgiving, I am thankful they were all here.  I spent plenty of time in the kitchen, as there's literally no leftovers much of the time with 7 to feed.  It's nice to cook for those who appreciate it.
-A friend gave me some of King Arthur's sourdough starter.  It's been some time since I've had starter.  I kept up the last batch for over a year, even bringing it on our vacations when we drove. I let it lapse when we flew someplace, didn't know if we'd make it on a plane with sourdough starter.  It's going strong now.  We got our advent calendar up tonight and the kids made sourdough pretzels with me.  I think that sounds like a tradition to keep. 
-I put new curtains up in the living room. It only took me 2 hours to decide what I wanted.  I *think* I like them.  It's really the biggest small decision that I can't stop overthinking.  My husband doesn't get why I even think about this for more than a half a second. 
-I'm excited about this "Cookie Tag"game.  I do love my desserts.  (And psst...I'm posting a cookie recipe for you tomorrow.).

3) Randoms-Not the best pictures in quality (those kids move fast!), but it's sibling togetherness...which I love to see.
