* After being sick, really sick, for almost a week, I am thankful to be back to my regular self. Somehow, although all I wanted to do was curl up somewhere quiet, I mustered the energy to keep things going for my kids for Christmas. Thankful for that.
* Snow, snow and more snow is coming our way. I enjoy snow, but it's been so cold and icy that it's not too fun out there. But, we do get outside everyday. It's zero degrees and my kids trudge along with me to do those chores. If given the chance to stay in, that's what I would do. Not my kids.
* I've been on a painting spurt lately. A friend once said that if you sit still too long in my house, you might get painted. I have been painting everything and anything lately. It's funny how these spurts come. I ought to take some pictures, haven't done that yet. On the to do list.
* Although I grumbled about our garden being not what we wanted it to be this summer, all of our dinners are planned around the garden still, and breakfast and lunch often have something from the garden as well. It's awesome, it really is.
*Thanks to the Efficiency Maine program, we're getting our kitchen floors insulated for next to nothing in the next couple of weeks. I cannot wait to have a kitchen floor that doesn't freeze your toes instantly. Someday, we'll have a set up where we won't have to unthaw our frozen pipes in the morning too. Someday...
Just a couple gifts I finished, for friends' kiddos.
And learning about tractors, of course.
