I just finished making this winter template and realized that I'm missing snow and cold weather. Here we are in the middle of November and we're going to reach record highs AGAIN, it's 73º right now and supposed to get higher by this afternoon. What is this?!?!?!?
I'm used to winter time, snow flakes outside, the cold brisk air hitting your face as you walk out the door and the smell of hot chocolate or a hearty stew or soup cooking away on the stove. *sigh*
So after looking at my blog I decided that I can't enjoy all those things here in Arizona, but there's no reason why those lucky ones can't right???
To start my post off today I'm sharing a recipe for a wonderful yummy Snow Cocoa!
The weekend is over and I wish it wasn't, I'm not ready to go back to real life, I want to hide away in the house for a couple more days, doing nothing, seeing nothing, saying nothing, just being.......you ever want to just BE??? Be content with what you have and who you are and where you live???
Cause I am, truly, no really, I am reaching that point in my life where I am just happy and truly content with what I've achieved and where I am at this time......what a great feeling!
So after taking these last 3 days to hang out and let it all go, I am now faced with a house screaming for attention and before you even roll your eyes or wonder "goodness how bad can the house be?". It's NOT bad at all, but I'm a neat freak and I get annoyed with dog hair on my couches (which btw if anyone has any tips on how to minimize it or fix it, please please, let me know), or tons of toys all over the living room floor, or kitchen counters with splashes of whatever drink was spilled or crumbs laying around. Even seeing a dish or two in the sink gives me hives. Well, not really, but you get the idea!!!
I won't even mention my computer desk because it has this way of looking cluttered and messy even when I am done cleaning. I sometimes sit and wonder, do I really need thousands of game, software and miscellaneous CD's?? Or all the pens and pencils, books, coffee mugs and wrappers from whatever candy I happened to grab on the way to the computer???
Well I'm baring it all for you, not in that way sorry, but I'm showing you what I need to do today and if you're easily offended you may want to skip this part.
That's all clean laundry just fresh out of the dryer and waiting to be folded, which means if I don't get my happy behind off this computer and start doing just that, I'll end up with creasy clothes and I can't stand that. Oh lookie another thing to add to my list of stuff that drives me crazy LOL
Wasn't that bad was it???? I love how the office chair is in the middle of the living room and Nicholas doesn't even have his clothes on yet, yep, it's early and he's had his breakfast but went right to playing with his toys. If I didn't remind him to get clothes on he would be happy walking around in his undies all day long.....what is it with kids and clothes???? Or maybe it's just MY kids and clothes, I don't know!
I just want to stay and chat but if I don't get going now I won't get anything done. I'll probably come back later today with a little more to add to this post, until then I hope you all have a great tuesday.
I'm sending a huge hug and kiss to my family back in South Africa, can't wait to see them all next year.
