Cleaning and Organizing

Today was full of cleaning, organizing and planning for the new year.

I emptied out the freezer so we could thaw it out. It was also a great opportunity to make a list of everything we had. We started the process of meal planning and we needed to know what we had. Tomorrow we go to the grocery store to get the fresh items we need for our week of meals.

Deron also sorted all of our magazines. I have no idea what he is going to do with them, but it was shocking to see how many we had collected over the years. What a waste!

Project 365 - 2011

A new year, and a new crack at the photo 365 project.

The afternoon New Years Levee at the Petersons' is becoming an annual tradition.

The first picture of me and Deron of the new year. I took it with an extended arm, and was talking to someone who offered to take the photo for us. I told him it was okay, and I could do it. The photo looks good except for the fact that my mouth was open because of the talking. :(

Deron spent some time playing mouse trap with the kids at the party.

Becky called me out of the blue this afternoon and asked what I was doing for supper. She was in Regina with a friend and wanted to see me and Deron. We decided to go to Spices of Punjab and the food was FANTASTIC. Deron and Becky like spicy food, so we got super spicy vindaloo as well as some less spicy butter chicken, rice, veggies, and much more. Unfortunately I tried some of the vindaloo and it made my nose run and my mouth burn. All the rest of the food tasted super spicy until I was able to get rid of the vindaloo taste. Despite that burning sensation, the food was still GREAT and I would recommend it to everyone.

I hope Becky comes back to visit again soon because with her living in Meadow Lake I sure do miss her.

Nicky is a big suck. He loves to come up on the sofa and cuddle with me and/or Deron. I love the comfort of sitting on the couch, watching tv and petting my dog.

I finished my beach bag! I totally love it. I hope that it won't stretch too much once it is filled with wet towels and beach toys, but only time will tell. I am sure I will get lots of use out of it at Coldwell this year. And it was a great way to get some use out of some t-shirts that I would never wear again.

It has a drawstring and handles, so it can be used in a couple of different ways. This is really the first thing I have ever crocheted, so it's even more exciting to have completed a project like this.

I am off work on Mondays, and it's a good think I was home this Monday because there was LOTS of snow to clear. It was actually kind of fun to be outside shoveling because I saw 4 other people out at the same time. It was a bit of a winter community gathering. :)

The guy on the corner used his snowblower to clear most of the block across the street, too bad he didn't come across to my side ;)

It snowed ALL day today. I cuddled up in the basement with a fire, but I did have to go out briefly. thankfully I only got the car stuck once. while we were outside Deron and I thought it would be a good idea to shove some snow, and Nicky had a great time playing in the show that is as deep as he is tall.
