Easily the most important part of this Weekly Wrap is that I wrote it in the aftermath of baking butterscotch-chocolate-chip cookies.
They were so warm and soft and tasty. I’m so sorry I cannot share them with you all. Hopefully you’re okay with me sharing my week instead!
Life Beyond the Blog
I’m not kidding about those cookies. Last night, my sister and I went to town with baking, and ended up with a batch of cookies that were perhaps a little too large, but still crisp at the edges and chewy in the certain. In essence, the perfect cookie. (If you know me, this is a miracle. I have the opposite of a green thumb, but for baking. Which means these cookies didn’t burst into flame by virtue of my sister’s help, probably.)
Honestly, I’m still riding that cookie high, and I’m definitely taking one or two with me in my work meal tonight. Why not?
And I’ll admit that baking cookies was something of a distraction. From my growing to-do list, yes, and from the flu shot I got yesterday. Get your flu shot if you’re able, folks. More than ever, tis the season! (And if you’re really, really bad with needles like me, don’t look, and jabber at the person giving you the shot until you’re about to overshare. By then, it’ll be over, and your mild embarrassment will carry you out in a rush. Perfect for getting out of there!)
Beyond that, though, I’ve spent this week finishing up those tidying touches on the deep clean in my room, and getting some small craft projects out of the way. Mostly the Christmas presents, to be honest. If I don’t do them now, they’ll judge me right around the time I should be wrapping them and hiding them under the tree!
It’s not been the most adventurous or exciting week, but around the hours spent sleeping and…procrastinating on blog things, I’ve done some reasonably responsible things. Small miracles, right?

The Week Ahead
At the moment, my sights are set on surviving until Tuesday. I’ve got three long days of work in a row, followed by a vet appointment that might not give me the best news, so I just have to take it a day at a time. An hour at a time, really. Sometimes, I catch myself brainstorming what’s worth mentioning in a Weekly Wrap on Monday, but not this week. One task at a time. And no new tasks, or my to-do list might come to life and smother me in my sleep.
What’s it like to cross everything off a to-do list? Does anyone know? If you do, I’d love to hear about it. It’ll make my daydreams more accurate.
Anyway, I don’t really know what next week holds because I can’t allow myself to think about it until Tuesday. It’s the safest way to keep from getting overwhelmed, which is all too easy right now.
But I guess I’ll take a moment to be optimistic: hopefully next week, I’ll read at least three books! How’s that sound?
I hope you’re all doing well, and that the week ahead has something good in store for you. We could all use a nice surprise right now, couldn’t we? Stay well and read well, friends! 💛
