It’s snowing! Only tiny flakes here and there, but it’s snow!! I love this time of year – before the bitter cold sets in.
Nila has taken to playing in the fireplace (of course, there is no fire in it). She just grabbed a lid from a bowl I was letting her play with, scooped out a ton of ashes and dumped them on the hearth. Ugh. I can’t wait to get a screen.
I have decided against the Smith & Wollensky breakfast for my birthday. $50 is a too much for apple pancakes with Santa. We can find some other REALLY cool way to spend $50. We will definitely decorate the tree that evening, though (it’s my own tradition)! I’d also like to make gingerbread houses and cookies at some point this season. I think Nila would enjoy playing in the icing!
My first day at work went well. They have a LOT of work to do creating systems to keep track of their accounts. I imagine that I’ll stay busy every single day. Friday, the owner, BC, brought in his mother’s homemade pecan pie to share. It was yummy.
I picked up an extra site this week, which was much needed. I have two more in the hopper (but with no deposits, so…), which would also be great to finish up. Another with a deposit made, but they’re not ready to finish it yet. All of those sites, coupled with my school work has pretty much kept me busy waking to sleep. I did take some time last night to lounge on the couch and watch COPS with Bob. I have always loved that show because it makes ME feel like less of an idiot.
