Can You Believe?

I can't....I cannot believe it's 2019 and it's the middle of January!

Not much is going on here.  Our day to day life is falling into a pattern.  I have my daily chores of dishes, laundry, cleaning (sometimes) and cooking. I squeeze in my card making early in the mornings and some afternoons while Jim naps.  If you'd like to see the latest check out my Paper Craft Page.  I'm challenging myself to make 500 cards this year...

Jim likes to read a lot, play games on tablet and laptop and sometimes does a few  chores inside.  Dishes now and then, maybe some dusting.  Of course he takes care of the holding tanks, filters etc.  Even climbs on ladders and does most of the outside cleaning.  Washes the truck when it's warm enough outside.

We're adapting to the colder temperatures but don't spend a lot of time outdoors when it's below 60 degrees outside.  

We finally dug out the bird feeders and some on the windows.  So far we have Tufted Titmouse, House Finch, Carolina Chickadee, Wren and American Goldfinches.  Love watching them! I've heard and seen Cardinals but they're to big for these window feeders. I hope we can get our feeding station set up so we can sit outside and watch them. But the ground is very rocky and we may need a post hole digger!

We've been enjoying the local library for the dvds.  Especially during the Christmas Holiday when the TV was saturated with children's programming.  I've also had a look at a couple new to me cookbooks.  To see what I've been reading check out the library page

We both joined the Alamo Drafthouse  and you get a free movie ticket for your birthday.  Since mine was in December my choice of movie was Mary Poppins!  What a fun movie.  The theater serves beer and food.  We enjoyed a never ending bucket of popcorn along with some tasty draft beer.  We've only been the one time but it would be a great place to while away cold or hot afternoons!

All is right in our world
