Holiday nap is over

Well tomorrow the whole show starts back up to the ol' madness and tight schedules. It was nice to have the holidays to slow down and spend time with Wifey and the kids. We have had such fun swapping stories and hanging out and trying new restaurants. Little Man is a bundle of energy and I am having to keep up with all the stories and ramblings his little mind can conjure up. Big Sis was given a jewelry making set up and she has been busy making her creations for everyone she knows.

The lodge is gearing up again. I had to go to the grocery store for this week. I have to get back in the swing of cooking and prepping for the nights we get together. I will also be kept busy with my other duties up there. Church activities will be keeping me crazy busy with committee meeting, fundraisers, and bible studies. The next few months is filled with activities that I will either be volunteering for or attending at the church or lodge. I won't complain. I enjoy staying active outside of the house.

Poor Wifey has to go back to work after her time off. She isn't looking forward to the Colorado temps and snow. Being in North Texas, we don't get a lot of the white stuff around here. My heart and prayers are for the ones that are buried in snow with this front that passed through. Our low tonight will only be down to 19, I can't even fathom below 0 temps or 18+ inches of snow. Spring will be here soon enough. I am taking this time to clean my tools, layout on paper the garden and browsing seed catalogs. Also going through my prep supplies and updating or adding items I think we might need. I try to prep for local disasters or weather. I want to be ready this year for storm season.

Time waits for no man, but it will slow down waiting for his wife at the mall.

  1. Although I enjoy the Holidays spent with family, it is nice for them to be over. After the Christmas decorations come down on January 1st, it's as if we really have started a new year. Hope your 2014 is a grand one :)

  2. I never thought I would have to endure 5 F. It is so cold here. Thankfully, this will be short-lived and we will get back to being the sunny South. Even the schools closed because of the cold.
