Hiya gang! I know I have been a bit MIA for a couple of weeks, but between a cold, back pain, and holiday happenings, I have wished I could clone myself!!
One to sniffle, one to lay on the sofa with the heating pad, one to decorate and wrap Christmas presents, one to cook and do bloggy stuff, and then I will take a vacation!!
Seriously. I would be on a tropical beach in a heartbeat!!
But, since that isn't happening any time soon, let me show you what has been happening around here for the last two weeks.
We bought our Christmas tree at a "cut your own tree" farm. Super fun, reallllllly cold!!
There is nothing (or not much) better than the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree. My house smells sooooo good!
I put up the decorations in my kitchen window. I am really starting to enjoy a "themed" window, but not really sure what I would do after Christmas? Valentines Day? What do you think? I am always open to ideas!!!
I finished the Christmas afghan I was crocheting! I am so excited with how it came out. Now I need a new pattern to start on, it is becoming an addiction!
I am not sure if I told you about the little deer that was orphaned when her mom was hit by a car. Her mother used to bring her into our yard all of the time. I have photo's of her when she still had her spots. You can see old photos of her mother with her here.
She now comes around pretty regularly, and has even invited a couple friends to come occasionally.
Being a "city girl" this is just an amazing thing to me.
I will keep you updated with how she is doing through the winter.
Since it has been a couple of weeks, let's catch up on what has been on the blog...
