Another year older…well, another 24 hours older really.
It rained. And I mean POURED. All. Day. Long.
And yet, today has been simply amazing. I slept in, and when I finally found the will to lift my body out of bed, I just transported it to my lounge chair in the living room and plunked my butt down there for a couple of hours.
I love that my friends and family know me…I mean, really know me. Most of my day – other than an hour brunch date with my lovely daughter at the pancake factory – was spent for the most part in that chair, flipping through Christmas presents. When I say flipping, it’s because one of them is a copy of Mother Earth Living – I mean, what better gift to give a homesteader, right??
And then when that was done – cover to cover – I switched over to a present from Hubby’s aunt; Jamie Oliver’s Food Escapes cookbook! Not only do I LOVE Jamie Oliver – I mean c’mon, just LOOK at him in all is blue-eyed, full lips, adorable dimple-ness – but this is going to come in extremely handy for the new blog I added on to this one: The Newbie Foodie …check it out if you’re so inclined! (it’s just starting out, doesn’t really have anything on it yet – fair warning!) I can’t wait to get more into that one as well!
Well – I’m all sugar’d out from the last two days, and unfortunately it’s back to work in the morning, so I bid you all a very good night my friends!
