Tucking Away

It was nice to see pizza on the menu again this week as it’s been a while since I’ve made some. The week before Christmas we had pizza out and then the week between Christmas and New Years we did not have pizza because we were munching on other stuff.

I was looking forward to pizza all week!  Our pizzas aren’t ever anything super special but they’re tasty to us.  Plus it provides comfort.  It’s a nice thing to have to look forward to during a week.

Especially a week back to work coming off a two week vacation.

Another thing I’m looking forward to this week is putting away the Christmas decorations.  They’ll be tucked away for another year.

Normally I keep them up for a while because I love having twinkle lights up all over my house.  Turning them on in the evening makes the house feel cozy and inviting.  This year I’m ready for everything to be put away and for things to be cleaned up.

Pizza was pretty simple this week, a little veg and some spicy sausage.

  • Homemade dough
  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozarella (grass-fed)
  • Spinach
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Broccoli
  • Mushrooms (Scott’s side)
  • Spicy Italian Sausage (Columbus Locals, from The Andersons).

The best part about the pizza this week?

I got a bubble! Whoo!

We kicked it old school last night and got a chance to watch some Antiques Roadshow while we ate.  A lady featured had a staute of a clown playing a lute (French) and it was worth $100,000.  Whoa!  I think that was the biggest take of the evening.

Wine sipped was a lovely pinotage from Camelot.

Looking forward to this weekend as well because along with putting the Christmas decorations, we’ll be tackling some house projects. I am so ready to get this house in order! A few Operation Clean-Up posts should be in the near future!

How was your week? Anything exciting going on this weekend?

    We have a bunch of stuff to do around our place, too. Cleaning, fixing stuff, etc. We hope to list our place soon. And we hope it doesn’t take the 100+ days to sell like most condos seem to be doing these days. We hope the nice hardwood floors make it easier!

  2. We’ve been doing the same things around here – got Christmas put away this weekend, cleaning/organizing, and doing some house projects to make it more “ours” and less dated-stuff-someone-else-chose. I get the urge to basically do “spring cleaning” in January!

    Nicole, good luck selling your condo! We sold ours last year, and it took 3.5 months to get into contract, and even that was taking a loss. :(

    • Charise, yes! That’s the exact way to put it, less-dated-someone-else-choose. Our house was built in the early nineties and clearly reflects that. Ugh.
