Anybody else loving the Olympics like I am. I'm watching the 3 to 4 hour shows each night on NBC and biting my lips a lot, especially watching the skaters.
I have to say that I loved the opening ceremony. I'm a little tired about hearing about the ring not opening. Sure it sucked that it didn't work but the rest of the show was excellent in my eyes. I really liked the use of color and the choreography was impeccable.
These dancers were one of my favorites. The men and
woman in the background were amazing!
I also enjoyed this colorful one too!
I made some Chicken Enchilada Soup in the crockpot on Saturday. It is delicious and definitely my favorite so far. I will be making this one again and will also be eating it for dinner every night this week. My friend Alexis at Running Away! I'll Help You Pack! posted it last week.
Mine didn't come out as dark as hers or the original post but I'm thinking it is because I didn't have chicken broth so I used vegetable! Otherwise I didn't change up anything else. Give this one a try, it's so yummy......
I also spent a lot of time this weekend working on my address book. My old book must be over 20 years old and has about 100 crossed out address. I'm surprised I could even find an address in it with all the note and post its along with the little return addresses torn off of envelopes!
So I spent time working on address labels on my computer and putting in all the important names, addresses, phone numbers and children's names, etc. Then I printed them out and put them on the proper pages under the proper alphabet letters in a new address book. It looks absolutely amazing and definitely organized. I tried to take a photo but without giving out names and addresses there just wasn't a good way to capture it.
I'm enjoying getting my things in order....this is the year to get organized and implementing a "less is more" attitude.
Mark landed safely in Europe at 2 am this morning and I will be spending Valentine's Day alone this year....sigh! But I'm going to keep busy and look forward to him coming home over the weekend. Right now I have sweet potato chips in the oven for the dogs and I even had some mashed sweet potatoes for breakfast.
We went to see Inside Llewyn Davis IMDb almost two weeks ago. It is a simple story about a folk singers life and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
"A week in the life of a young singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961."
We had the opportunity to see Blue Jasmine IMDb on DVD from Netflix. We are Woody Allen fans and this movie was in true Woody form and very enjoyable........
"A New York socialite, deeply troubled and in denial, arrives in San Francisco to impose upon her sister. She looks a million, but isn't bringing money, peace, or love..."
