Happy New Year!


Another year has just flown by!

We didn't do much for New Years eve. Watched the Jaws marathon on cable, rolled out some crust and made pizza.

Freezing rain had a the interstate closed and a lot of advisories for staying off the roads. I heard on the 10p news that there were 23 accidents between 6p and 9p. Scary.

And we usually do fireworks at Midnight, but the weather was so cold/windy that we skipped it this year.

Kids are back to school come Monday. I think they had a good vacation. Wish I could have spent more time with them doing stuff, but that didn't quite work out.

I am looking for a piano for the kids. A used upright would be perfect. Colton and Chyann are both learning to play on an old keyboard we have and a few keys don't work.

The puppy has been named.
Introducing Shasta Breeze!

She is very hard to get a picture of, as she is continually in motion.

The other dogs tolerate her well, especially Beegee who wrestles with her all the time.

I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast today then whipped up a batch of zucchini bread w/craisins instead of raisins. Very good. Even if the loafs did stick on the bottom of the pan.

After that I had to get in some couch time.

I had big plans to clean out/rearrange the extra room - it is the upstairs dumping ground for any unused or unwanted items for the kids, but I didn't even make it back upstairs.

Maybe tomorrow.

Cinnamon Rolls, did you say cinnamon rolls? Yum on All the goodies.
As for the spare room, nah, it can wait, maybe til spring when you can open the windows and let the WARM breezes in instead of this bitter arctic cold snap we are having.
Stay warm....cocoa time!
