Hello, hello! I know I've been missing in action over here, but things have been crazy busy and there has been no time left to type, and even less time (and lighting) to take pictures.
Okay, so what's been going on? It seems to me like a lot, but probably not that much in reality. Life has a funny way of doing that, doesn't it?

Anyway, here's what we've been up to.

reading: I just read this for the first time. I'd heard of it (along with nearly everyone else) but I hadn't watched the movie or read the book/s. It's so so sad. Even if only bits and pieces of it are true, it's STILL so sad. It sounds like either way, Joan Crawford struggled a lot in life.
The second (and much happier book) that I've been reading is The Child Whisper. Full of good information and thoughts, this (in my option) is a great parenting book!

cooking: whatever I can make in the oven and heat up the house is what's on the menu. Last night was spinach and cream cheese stuffed chicken breasts and tonight is probably going to be soup and bread.

feeling: so so cold. I know it's not as cold here as it is in other parts of the US, but it's still cold. Below zero temps and still dropping. I'm over Winter at this point and waiting for Spring!

planning: on going shopping tomorrow. I was going to go out today, but the car seats are in the jeep (that's at work with Adam) so that's not going to happen. However, if we go tomorrow we can also make it to Storytime (depending on how much work I have).

watching: way too much t.v lately! I've given up though when it's this cold. We do anything to survive Cabin Fever ;) Adri's been watching Power Rangers, and I've been watching Friends (for the hundredth time).

thinking: about what to get Adam for his birthday. For once I'm really stumped. I'm getting him a new beer brewing kit, but I'd also like to surprise him a little something more than that.

hating: the weather, the lack of sunlight, being stuck inside, the list goes on and on! I'm trying hard to stay positive, however. Only a few months left and it should warm up again

Have wonderful Thursday, and stay warm!

  1. What a treat to see your post this morning....always brings a smile to my face. Ya'll stay warm.
    Hugs and blessings,

  2. So lovely you have friends with children near yours in age!! Hope that endures too!! When ours were young we also did...but had moved by the time they were in their teens and did not have many friends then with children their ages that was hard. Take care in the cold...tis so chilly here, but balmy by comparison to the East!!
