Five Things to be Happy About: 11/23-11/29

1.  Fantastic Co-workers.  Since there were not many of us here the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, we grabbed our laptops, headed down for breakfast and camped out in the cafeteria chatting and getting work done until our batteries died and people began rolling in for lunch.  A nice change of pace from sitting at or desks all day.

2.  I started reading a new book.  Loving Frank... about Frank Lloyd Wright and his love affair.  Fiction, but based on truths.  Pretty great so far, a little over halfway through it.

3.  Matt and I were seriously tested in a very "parental" way.  Without going into too much detail, our niece had a hard time leaving her grannie Annie and grandpa Lenny and was a bit of a challenge on the four hour car ride home.  The good news is, Matt and I were pleased with our composure throughout the entire thing. 

4.  One of my favorite 15 minutes meals: Cover one side of salmon with sesame seeds, cook for 3 minutes in a skillet with olive oil on medium heat then put the skillet right in the oven 10 minutes at 350, done.  Orzo on the stove takes 9 minutes... add cherry tomatoes.  and fresh steamed broccoli.  Yum.

5.  Mama gave me a sewing lesson while we were in TN for Thanksgiving and for my first project I made stockings.  I'm so proud of them, and I finally feel a little more comfortable using the machine.
