The last month, in a nutshell:
I went to Minnesota at the beginning of December and had a wonderful time seeing friends and going to the wedding and visiting old places that I love and miss. It was really cold and snowed a couple times (so beautiful!) and by then end of the week I was ready to go home. I was anxious to get back and see Marcus so I drove in one shot, 18 hours, and only got a little delirious the last 50 miles. Oh, road trips.
Work is going fine. It’s pretty slow but I don’t mind so much. I haven’t been reading very much, unfortunately but I play a lot of Sudoku.
Thanksgiving and Christmas were both very low key holidays this year (just as New Years will be). They kind of came and went without too much to-do. It was nice to have the days off. Marcus and I cooked lots of delicious breakfast and some good soup and just lots of good food in general. Mmm mm m. He bought me a couple very lovely things such as a pair of jeans and a sherpa hoodie (the most comfortable sweatshirt in the world) and a couple cookbooks. He is so darn sweet to me. I was pretty much totally broke this year so I wasn’t able to get anyone anything :(
I have not been very un-culinarily (that’s not a word) creative lately. I sewed some stockings for Marcus and I and am hand quilting that quilt but that’s about all. I need inspiration again.
As I am every year, I am wondering what this new year will bring. This one, strangely enough, ended up pretty much exactly how I wanted it to just everything in between was a little wonky. I am so much happier where I am right now.
