After feeling quite lazy the last few days, finally, finally, things are being crossed off the to-do list around here...
We did a huge grocery shop (you can see a few things - potatoes, onions, garlic, avocados - sorted into little Christmas bowls atop our ugly old microwave in our kitchen) and it is so good to have tons of fresh food choices.
And I've been cooking up things in big batches to freeze and take to work/school for lunches, like this super healthy lentil tomato soup... Next up is chili, my favourite.
And of course I've been unpacking a few more decorations, like these ones on top of our monogrammed 1920s storage box (I told you about how we found it -- with my initials, hooray! -- right here). You can see more of our Christmas touches around the condo here and here.
The photo in the beaded silverplate frame is me sitting on Santa's lap and my big sister, Christine, standing beside him (you got a glimpse of her home makeover here and here -- can't wait to show you more very soon!).
The silver and white snowman is actually a big candle inside, a gift from my mother-in-law.
Here's some close ups for you...
I also took care of another 5 or so holiday cards. Doing them a few at a time helps it from feeling like a too-big task.
Ok, well now that some house stuff is done it is time to finally get some serious work done on some reports for work and things for school, so I'm off for a little while. Have a great day!
