That Time of Year

Hello Everybody!  Sorry it has been a month since my last post.  Time is flying and there's not much going on but here is a summary.

I have had a cold for two weeks.  I feel fine but I cough all night.  I have a tendancy to hang on to coughs forever so we will see how long this one sticks around.  I'm officially on day eight of coughing all night. 

My mom and husband, Glen, are moving to South Dakota today.  I'm not happy.  Very sad actually.  We are on our last year here in NC and plan to move back to Michigan in late summer and they will be gone!  It's most likely temporary.  Glen just needed a new change of scenery (job).  He hated his.  Well he landed a great new job in SD and will have three day weekends to enjoy traveling with my mom.  I do look forward to visiting!  I've never been out there.

I spend a lot of my free time on Pinterest.com.  So far the site has inspired me to actually set up my sewing room.  I have been working on multiple projects lately.  An apron, mittens, leg warmers, clutch, fabric flowers, yoga pants and more.  Pinterest has also inspired me to get back into the gym.  I joined the YMCA and have been going nearly everyday.  Lots of cardio and weight training.  I've decided to really tone up and get healthy so I'm doing it!  Turning 30 in a few weeks may have something to do with it.

My Christmas shopping is about done.  I bought a lot of stuff for Andrew this year since he usually doesn't get anything from me.  I somehow always end up broke around Christmas.  Not this year!  We put our tree up last night but are holding off on decorations to see how the cats react to the tree itself.  They seem pretty interested in it.  I think they will be climbing it in no time.

My Thanksgiving dinner turned out wonderful.  I must say that I really love cooking.  I can't wait to get back to MI and cook for the whole family.  They will never eat another greenbean casserole from a can again!

My brother Chris and his girlfriend Toni are expecting a baby this May.  We are hoping for a girl but they find out soon so fingers crossed.  We are all so happy to have another baby around.  My mom will be coming home in April for a month to be there when the baby comes and I will be back too.

We joined a fall CSA this year and really enjoyed the produce.  We were receiving carrots, broccoli, greens, sweet potatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, mesclun mix, radishes, beets, turnips, cabbage, peppers, egg plant and more for seven weeks.  I wish it would never end but it has. 

Well, that about sums it up.  I will start posting weekly agian if I can pull myself away from Pinterest.
