Signs of the Holidays

1. I’m awake and melting chocolate at 8 am…in my pajamas.

2. Breakfast is only made after we shift lots of dishes around so we actually have room to cook.




After shuffling around the kitchen, Nick started cooking some local VA sausage and cut up some apple while I cooked some eggs for us (and oatbran for me!).




and some coffee!


I’ve still got so much to do!!!

Nick just left to help set up sound for church, so while he’s gone, I’m going to be working on:

  • finishing up presents
  • wrapping gifts
  • cleaning the house
  • packing my bag

Can I get it all done?!?

What color are your dishes?
