Hello friends, it is a quiet and snowy morning here. Everyone will get up and be busy in a few minutes but for now I’m taking in the quiet that the snow brings. I forget every year what few inches can do— making the world hush. I am tempted to get outside with my camera, but my toasty-toes are preventing me from venturing out into the cold.
I am finally feeling better (finally!). On Saturday, my girlfriends got together for some Christmas shopping. What fun! I was able to ride with my beloved friend, Katie (of the pumpkin crisp fame). Of all the Christmas shopping, lunching, the laughter, conversation— I only have two pictures— and not of these beautiful girls. 100 years from now, there will be no proof of our friendship, other than cookie-swap recipes and baby-having-lore. We even talked about this at lunch. Our best picture is at her wedding with about half our group missing— and three of us are pregnant. Even though I’ve made a promise to myself to be IN pictures, I’m doing a bad job of encouraging others (and myself!). So here's a picture of (just a few of) us from dinner with our husband's a few months ago.
In other news: I will actually be home by myself for few days between Christmas and New Year, so I’m deciding what projects I want to accomplish... I know I want to get the toys cleaned out. The playroom takes on a life of it’s own, and the toys/games/dress up multiplies while I sleep. How can this be?
And I want to get a few rooms painted. But I also want to read, take walks, watch movies, sew, knit, drink tea... I’m not sure if I can get it all done. Ahh. We’ll see (:
I am in dire need of new book/ movie suggestions. Got any good ones??
