A Day In The Nest

There aren't many days that I stay home "all" day. Today was the first in a long time. I love to stay home. I could easily become a recluse.....if I had plenty of supplies on hand...if I could see my family....if I could shop...well maybe not a recluse but I do love a good day at home!



Trixie enjoyed staying in her bed and watching me work.



I used the leftover roast from Pioneer Womans' Perfect Pot Roast to make vegetable soup for supper. Soup is my main reason for having roast! I love the leftovers almost more than the original meal.



Laundry - done
Floors - done
Online Christmas Shopping - done (I love it)

IPod - updated with Zac Brown Band and The Beatles....yes....Beatles are on ITunes now! I purchased the Rubber Soul album...Oh I love it! In My Life is such a beautiful song, I will listen to it and the entire album with fond memories!!!!

I hope you all had a great day! We had a cold front move through after lunch and I am ready for soup and cornbread....(then Survivor) Speaking of TV, did you see Brandy's face when she was eliminated from DWTS? I know she was shocked, I was too, but she looked, shall I say angry?

I LOVE to have days that I never have to leave the house! Trixie sure looks like she enjoyed the day also. Man that soup looks good. I've never used leftover pot roast for soup; now, I have a plan!! =) thanks for the idea!

That day looks perfect! I love that "home" plaque! Ahhh...soup...mmmm. We had soup from Whole Foods and I am about to fall asleep and it is not even 7:00.

I love days at home. Alex and I have a lot. I like it that way. As for DWTS, I didn't see last night's show, but I'm so disappointed Brandy went home. I wanted her to win. Very strange season - varying degrees of talent in the finale. Do you think Bristol will win?

I have that exact little sign on my desk! TJ Maxx?? :) I love home...home all day! In fact, I try to run all of my errands one day and have the other 4 of the work week at home...lovely.

soup..perfect!

nanny said...

Yes Betsy, TJ Maxx....when I saw it, I just had to have it!
Amanda, at this point it wouldn't surprise me if Bristol wins,,,,,,even though I DO NOT think she deserves it. I thought is was a dance contest....oh well....

Deb said...

sounds like a great day...cold front hit us today....lots of wind

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I love being at home also---and there are MANY days that we stay home ALL day... Love it!!!!!! When we do go out and run errands, we try to do several things at the same time --so as not to have to go out again the next day or so.... YES---I'm definitely a recluse (unless we are traveling or hiking in the woods --which I LOVE)... ha
Hugs,
Betsy

It's Just Dottie said...

I am a stay at home kind of girl. Your soup looks yummy and oh my cornbread!
I made the ham salad recipe you posted about. It was so good. Dax told me at lunch time his sandwich was delicious. Smiles, Dottie

Amen! There's no place like home :-)

Marguerite said...

What a lovely fireplace! And that soup looks divine! Thanks for sharing!

Jill said...

Mmmmmm, soup...I ADORE soup!
I love to stay home...I could putter for HOURS!

Grandmother said...

I like to wear my pj's all day on my stay at home days. It feels so decadent, homey, comforting.

Alison said...

I missed DWTS!!!! But, I think I'd look angry too if I were her. Bristol? Really?
The soup looks delicious. I think you should stay home more and start working on Nanny's cook book. You could give PW a run for her money.

If I had a big beautiful fireplace like yours to curl up in front of, I'd love to stay home too!

I love the Rubber Soul Album! PBS is having a John Lennon special on Monday night.
