We’ve been baking lots of cookies and I’m slowly putting my house back together after getting new carpet. Doing all this one-handed. It’s not easy and so slllooowwww. Which is annoying to me. Because I was getting so frustrated I made a future and now to-do list. My future to-do list is 38 items long but that doesn’t overwhelm me-it’s getting them off my brain and onto paper that is have the fun and feels so good.
I am trying to get my Top Ten gifts ideas ready for after Thanksgiving-hoping typing gets easier.
Meanwhile one of our favorite winter activities are puzzles-the big ones that everyone can sit down and work for a few minutes or hours on boring nights and weekends. Our library has lots on loan. It is easier for us now without toddlers-I know that’s impossible when little hands are reaching up and can take down weeks of work in one quick minute. 🙂
We are reading this book for our book club this month and it’s JUST my type of book, and I can not put it down. I have to keep reminding myself that this is a modern day book-it seems like her experience in North Korea had to happen in the early 1900’s-just the level of violence and starvation and mistreatment of humanity. It’s a really good book.
