Leisurely Tuesday Evening


Cosmopolitan Cocktail Candy, at Amazon - Most of my friends like Cosmos, so this year I'll grab a few of these to use as stocking stuffers

QUICK THINGS TO DO TODAY:

- Check over your Thanksgiving grocery shopping list, if needed. I shop early for my canned goods, frozen items and baking supplies. This lets me avoid crowded, stressful stores in the week leading up to Thanksgiving. Except for when I need to go get fresh produce and dairy.

- When's the last time you defragged or backed up your computer?

- Is your anti-virus software up to date?

- If you enjoy incense or candles, when's the last time you burned some?

- Need to do any laundry? Pet bedding? Towels? Clothes for everybody to wear this week?

TODAY'S PROJECT: Do Something Relaxing and Fun With Your Family

What's something you really enjoy doing that you don't usually have time for during the workweek? If you manage to be home tonight with your family members (or roommates or friends), spend a few hours doing fun things with your family tonight.

Go to a movie (even if it means keeping the kids up a bit past bedtime on a schoolnight), watch silly or fluffy TV, settle into a comfy chair with a book, make Lego structures or bake cookies with your kids, scrapbook or knit, or take your dog on an extra long walk. If you enjoy shopping, this evening is a great chance to make huge inroads on your Christmas shopping list without the stress of crowded December malls.

I'm going to spend my time tonight home with my cousins, making a special manicotti meal with fried mozzarella sticks as an appetizer. I'll also attempt to bake Italian breadsticks from scratch today. I'm also baking muffins to send home with my cousin - his household of bachelor boys will probably really appreciate the goodie basket.
