If we were having coffee, I’d have to share this humble brag. I am planning on making Ham and Bean Soup in the Crock Pot today… and it’s going to be close to 70 degrees out today. December in Los Angeles.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve been watching far too much HGTV and watching HGTV makes me house envious. Not just because the houses shown on all of my favorite home rehab shows are GORGEOUS but also because of the costs of the homes! When I need to shake myself back to the reality of the housing market in Pasadena, I’ll do a Zillow search. The least expensive that pops up is $325,000 for a 3 bed, detached home of about 1100 sq. ft. Rentals you ask? Around $2300/ mo for 3 bed detached. Ugh. And if you don’t have an all cash offer… fugettaboutit. Los Angeles housing fail.
If we were having coffee, I’d kvetch a bit about our Christmas Cards. We ordered them from an online vendor who had an amazing deal and are based out of California. That was 3 weeks ago and our cards are still not here. I will tell you that this was stressing me to no end until I remembered that we are still in ADVENT and CHRISTMAS doesn’t begin until Dec. 25. So, yay, Liturgical Year Win.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that Magnetic Catholic is offering 20% items in her shop through Jan 1. by using the coupon code: CAFFEINATEDCATHOLIC.
