I feel like we are officially doing winter now. Snow and chill for the next three months. Some people might not be excited for any of it, but me, I am excited to get out in some snow covered woods and take it all in. I love me some winter.
This past week was a week of trying to feel not sick (still feeling a little sick) and to get myself all organized for the year. Not a new years resolutions, just a tax man thing. Aggh, already thinking of taxes.. lets just not right now. Besides that, not to much else. We babysat, worked, I tested out my new wood carving knives that the mr got me for Christmas and almost cut my hand off (which means tha they are really good). The week kind of flew by, but oh yeah, the kitchen, it's like pretty much DONE!!!! I have a working sink, faucet, cabinet doors, and have been using the stove all week. It's amazing, and strange and I am looking forward to lots and lots of kitchen time. There are still things that need doing, but last night I prepared our entire meal on the kitchen counter and not on the dining table or floor. It was a pretty great feeling.
Today. Got a day full of events. Most pressing is that my twin bros are doing 19 today (Happy Birthday Shitheads) and are coming over in a few hours for some home made cinnamon buns that I need to go make. So I should go do that.
