Five on Friday

A very quick Five on Friday.  The week has gone so quickly and I'm trying to stretch each minute out to have more time with our daughter.

So, First, our daughter April arrived on time Monday night, I cried and she couldn't figure out why.
Right now she is ensconced on the couch armed with a Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato sandwich on toast and a cup of tea.  She said I shouldn't take her picture as she's eating and is wearing no make-up, but I think she looks just fine


Second is this great bear band.  We made a run to a local mall to pick up craft supplies and to Target so she could stock up on items she can't get in Japan.  Plus friends had asked for York Peppermint Patties.  


Third Mac is out in the garage Geppettoing.    That means he's busy making Christmas gifts.  He burned out his drill yesterday, but good old Amazon promises that a new one will be here tomorrow.


Fourth I've been busy cooking.  We had schnitzel as promised, with noodles, there were ribs and potato salad yesterday and there will be leftovers today.  I also baked more cookies as we were running low.

Fifth almost everything I've ordered has shown up, waiting on one more order from Macy's.  It should get here, but if not, she'll get a picture of what it is.


Hope everyone has as good a weekend as I'm going to have.

  14. Gepettoing, I like that! April looks cosy on the sofa, glad she is enjoying the BLT. I bet these are a rare delicacy in Japan. Have a lovely few days. x
