The end already? I meant to update more often. Grand intentions as the day begins but as evening rolls around there's just not quite enough energy left. I've got to work on that.
Good things that happened this month...
:: the daylight. It's increasing each and every day and I am loving every extra minute of it.
:: cross country skiing. With all the snow this year the ski trails are excellent so my skis have made their way out of the closet and onto the trail.
:: I saw this movie recently. I really enjoyed it and I did something I have never done before. I went by myself. Oh yes. It. Was. Awesome.
:: last summer's bounty. Peaches, apples, green beans, peppers, tomatoes, corn, squash, carrots, garlic - just to name a few things that have been making an appearance on my plate. But not all at once! So, so good.
:: the painting and cleaning project is well underway. I am loving the new look. Last weekend I found the perfect (small) reclining chair. It magically fit in the back of my vehicle and looks sweet as can be in it's new home. A nice, little nesting spot for the end of a long day.
And with that I'll leave you with a photo of Buffy. She likes to sit on the upper bale and slide/hop down to the next one and then to the floor. It's all very fast and quite comical I might add because she's a bit... oh how shall I say this... plump. ;)
This past weekend it snowed and it involved a lot of shoveling, snowblowing and just plain ol' digging out. My stringy muscles are still begging for mercy.
And while it snowed I worked on inside projects. One of those dealt with perfecting a bowl of freshly popped popcorn. It consisted of melted butter, sea salt, chili powder, and a sprinkle of true lime. Oh my. It's my newest favorite popcorn seasoning. Do you have any secret popcorn seasonings/flavors/combinations? I'd love to know your favorites.
There have been some long days this week and sometimes at the end of those days the sunsets are most welcomed and not to mention the perfect time for a photo or two.
