Had a rather lazy Sunday (I think we might have overdosed on Nigella Kitchen, Top Chef and Next Iron Chef – if too much gastro-telly is possible), and now it is Monday and time to start the week again. Since it’s Thanksgiving I’ve got a lot of things going on, so to try and stay focused (and not get sucked into a Eureka marathon on Netflix instant) I’d make a list:

  • 75 cookies to bake as a favor for a friend
  • Attempt to secure ComCon tickets
  • Work on 2011 calendar and Christmas cards
  • Watch Robin Hood (Netflix rental lingering on the coffee table)
  • Finish mittens & start on the next project
  • Make mincemeat & first batch of pies (going to bake & freeze)
  • Locate hazelnut liqueur for tiramisu for Thanksgiving desert
  • Bake pumpkin chocolate chip bread as a favor for another friend
  • Read (and enjoy!) Lucan’s Civil War
  • Prep for seminars on women in Aristophanes comedies, Pliny’s letters on his wife’s miscarriage, and Aeschylus’ Oresteia trilogy
  • Start (online) Christmas shopping
  • Survive hair cut and color at the hands of an Aveda student
