One of my New Year's resolutions beyond losing 20 pounds is to post more diligently over here. I've got so many mediums that I post in that it is very difficult to keep up with it all, but I'm hoping to stream line that this year. We'll see how it goes.
Over vacation we've gotten a lot accomplished home and hearth-wise. Kenny put up (aka canned) around 30 some pints and 10 quarts of deer meat! YAY! That's another goal of mine this year: To be less dependent and more independent on consumerism.
Small story: I took Sadie shopping yesterday as I had a 20 dollar gift card burning a hole in my pocket and EEKS! It was bedlam. Target was crazy! We wound up with a kick butt pair of slippers for me and a huge coloring book for her. Life was good, but couldn't wait to get out of there. Then we went to Michael's, which was a bit more sane and was completely stoked to find a bunch of my hat yarn on sale! Bought some of that and off to Fareway where we stocked up on some much needed items (toilet paper anyone?). But, Target had taken it's toll and I had a whopper of a headache by the time I got home. Kenny was a sweet pea and let me roll around in a hot tub with some mint tea by my side and 5 ibuprofen now in my system. But, the shock value of Target was still with me. I couldn't get over these people.
The past year has taught me a few things:
1. We can all live on quite a bit less than what we've got and it won't kill us dead.
2. We CAN make do and learn how to take care a bit more.
3. We have learned a bit more on taking care of each other....it's imperative.
4. What does not kill us makes us stronger. It's a fact.
Just a few small tidbits rolling about in my brain. :) I got another hat done last nite for sale! I'm totally excited that two of my friends have commissioned hats from me. Makes me feel all warm and toasty and junk. :)
And on another completely random but wonderful note: Congrats to the The Macs on their newest addition!!! May your year be filled with all the best and brightest for little Levi!!
