Ask Me If I'm Glad It's Friday

Yes, I AM!!

It's been a week and then some.

On tap for the weekend is a movie Sat. when Nin gets home from work, then sheet and towel laundry. We have house guests two weekends in a row, so need to make the apartment habitable. Sunday we need to shampoo the carpets. Bleah. And put away all the Halloween decorations. I'm also going to make chicken and dumplings from scratch, starting with a whole chicken, making stock, and so on and so forth. Never done it like this before, normally I make a sauce with soup and chicken broth and such and put in pieces of chicken and veggies. But I've been craving chicken and dumplings for some reason, so I decided to try a new recipe.

Since Nin's been home evenings all week, we're fairly caught up on our weekly TV slate, though still behind on some of the shows we never got caught up with in the first place. Make sense? I really enjoyed Grey's last night, and Ugly Betty is still making me laugh and cry. Supernatural was enjoyable as well. And from earlier in the week, House rocks this season! Wow, I'm getting some of my old total fangirl love of this show back. Not that I didn't enjoy the last two seasons, but it had lost some of the zing that made me worship S1. I'm liking Men In Trees more and more, and I'm really glad I started watching it by accident mid first season :) I'm also developing a real fondness for Private Practice, though still not enough that I would rather have Addison back on Grey's. And of course, Chuck, Moonlight, Journeyman, Life -- all good.

Of course, if this strike goes on too long, I'll have to get DVDs of series I haven't seen. Not to mention watch the all the ones I already own but haven't had time to watch yet!
