Calendars, Etc

I got the refill calendar for 2009 in the mail the other day and I have already put all the year's birthdays I am just waiting for things to come up that I will have to put in it as time goes by. I know you probably think it is weird to be excited about a calendar but I am always thrilled to have a clean slate to start with and organizing is my thing...always has been, probably always will be. I also got the calendar that J's side of the family made this year. It is beautiful. They did a great job on it and I can't wait for the new year to start so I can hang it in my kitchen. I know they are excited about it too.

I finally got the oil changed in our car and checked a few other things off the To Do list. I made Pho/Kwiteo (Vietnamese/Thai beef noodle soup) on Friday and have been eating it and sharing it with friends for two days now. I just filled the pot back up with water tonight, because I have some more noodles to finish off before I can call it quits. You have to soak the noodles in water before you can cook them and once they are soaked, it is a waste to not use them. I also have a certain amount of thin sliced meat defrosted that has to be used. Generally it works out that I run out of veggies, noodles and meat all about the same time and that is the notice that it is done. It is a great soup though so I don't mind eating it for several days and I never feel like I am eating badly when soup is on.

The weather has been perfect soup weather for the last two days. Rain and wind that makes you want to stay in and eat soup and watch movies (of course, I am watching Season 4 of Lost online but same difference). I have started a new book and it always feels good to have reading to do before bed so all in all, I have to say life is good...or that might just be the soup talking....haha.


Two Years Ago on In My Words...She's Coming

Pho and season 4 of Lost sounds excellent. I wish I was doing that right now.

I got a good chuckle out of this post because I just went through and put everybody's birthdays on my day planner for next year. I love that too!

The soup sounds yummy and even more so because I didn't have to make it!
