I am so confused. Is it December and almost Christmas or did I somehow sleep through it and its actually April and Easter.? If you tell me it's Easter, I'll probably believe you.
BUM!!! I am not a hater but man do I freaking HATE HATE this weather. And no, not just because I want a white Christmas, which I do, but because I love winter. I love the cold weather, the fresh crisp air, the quiteness, and the feeling the world takes on after a particularly large dump of snow. Not to mention the fact that I haven't gotten to enjoy much of my finest winter wardrobe (big baggy knit sweaters, or my happy green winter boots.) So so sad, but I have faith that winter will happen soon and all will be right with the world.
This past week was a good one. The mr turned a big number (lets say thirty something), We did a little birthday dinner here and another one there. He made grilled cheese sandwiches one night and buttered noodles another. The littles got to sing him the happy birthday song and eat strawberry ice cream. (and those same littles were eating my popcorn garland off of my tree. Monsters!) We went for a really pretty, kinda eire hike and a drive through the mountains. I made blondies and pickled crackers and we made a trip to Costco where every giant row of food had a person handing out a candy of some sort. (He came home and found melted chocolate in his sweater pocket) It was a great week and an interesting week of food for him for sure. I on the other hand.. I think I have eaten my weight in carrots and kale and am now glowing more orange then ever.
But it's Sunday guys! Time for... well today I am probably working all day, but whatever. It's good work, like new house work (I'll give you more of an update later this week) and It's not time sensitive work so I can go at my own slow pace, bring a thermos of coffee, maybe a break time book or a doodle pad and pencils. It will be fun and when I get home I will feel accomplished and ready for a quite night on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn watching either Home Alone 1 and/or 2 or The Santa Clause, We shall see!
How about you? You got any fantastic plans? Are you going to spend half the day on amazon trying to find that thing, at the price that ships on that day? Or is it the Easter eggs that need to be hidden? Well whatever you are doing today, make sure to take some time to yourself and relax., cause it's Sunday and we all need it.
