Today we had baptism for my new niece, Nola. I am a godparent along with my sister (who couldn't make it for the service because she was scheduled to work), and my sister-in-law's sister. We had a tasty brunch after church.

Later in the day we headed to a local production of Junie B. Jones, Jingle Bells, Batman Smells. We know three people in the cast, and enjoyed it greatly. I had already seen it on Wednesday with some students from school because one of our students (Jose, below) played the part of Jose.
I have been reading Amy Tan's new book, The Valley of Amazement all weekend. I'm still not done - it's 580 pages- but I am really enjoying it.
Right now I am baking a sweet potato, corn, black bean and avocado recipe to be served on tortillas. After that gets done I am planning on running for a bit on the treadmill. I've been doing a lot of eating lately, and not so much exercising. Definitely not how I should be heading into the holiday season.
No construction/destruction yet on our kitchen project. We did hear that perhaps they would start last Friday at the earliest. So, the time should come soon. I am trying to use up some food that we have, but still bought groceries today since we do have to eat this week.
It's starting to feel like winter here, too. Just 21 degrees today for a high. The humid 95 degree weather can come right on back. I love it that way! Sadly, this is only November, so we have several months to endure before any heatwave will be occurring.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving week planned - simply watching television and reading sound like fine activities to me.
