Winter is Coming...

Well I am snuggled up in my blanket with a cup of Black Mint tea next to my husband who is happily playing Skyrim, thinking about settling in for winter. We used to have to be out in the weather every cold bitter day before we sold the cows and now it's a pleasent thought to think about being closed in for the season.

With the holidays coming and our new little Tristan here I am trying to get ahead a little by thinking of my Christmas shopping and getting some much needed cleaning done. It seems like it's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and I don't want to run out of time to make some cookies with Sophia, or teach Tristan how to blow raspberries.

It's funny how our lives are so much easier with all our amazing modern conveniences but for some reason I just seem to get busier and busier and am wishing for a few more hours for each day. Sometimes life just needs to slow down a bit. I need to play more video games and do more cooking.

Ummm speaking of cooking I think I will make Polenta Soup tomorrow. One of Dan's favorite recipes. It's on my recipe web site if you want to try it!

Well it's late and with all my reminiscing done I should head to bed... ;-)
