The week started off sad for us last Sunday as one of my best friend’s mom passed away suddenly. The Lord took the oh-so sweet Gert Norris to live upstairs and watch over her family and all of us.
Rest in Peace, Mrs. Gert!
On Tuesday evening, I could not attend the wake in Thibodaux (an hour away) due to our annual Family Science Night in which I am in charge. 20 science stations manned by over 30 6th, 7th, and 8th grade “lab rats” are set up in our cafeteria. Pre-K-3rd grade students and their parents attend to take part in fun, engaging science experiments such as making oobleck, constructing paper airplanes, and building marshmallow towers.
It was a fun night had by all.
On Saturday, I started my Christmas decor. I am anxiously awaiting my live mixed garlands arriving at the end of this week.
This weekend we had some convival parlor patter with neighbors, Sarah and Paul before attending a delicious dinner at Apolline, a newish neighborhood eatery.
We brunch at our fave, Mr. B’s Bistro in the quarter while listening to jazz.
We picked up a new ornament (more later on the stylish shrimp boots) at the Historic New Orleans collection as well as my favorite Nest Holiday candles and diffusers from Sax Fifth Avenue.
We even stopped by the Westin on the river to grab a cocktail. The view is one of my favorites in the city.
Whew! What a busy week! I guess its TIS THE SEASON. Right?
The week that was, y’all!
