Crazy Winter

Category: Journal

Winter around here has sure been off to a crazy start. First we had really cold for this time of year then tons of snow then really warm and tons of rain which melted the snow. Now we are back to some sort of norm although it was nice to have that fresh blanket of snow. Nothing is better then having snow outside the christmas lights on the woodstove burning and a cup of hot chocolate. That is what winter should be all about.

Now speaking of the woodstove, the peanut just loves to help me get it started and seems to think that is what we should do everytime we are in that room. He is a big help of course thoug, he just loves when i scrunch up the paper then give it too him and he tries to copy what i did. Then he will pass me all the wood in the box wether i need it or not. With the fire started and the wood burning he then guides my hand to close the door as he doesn't like it open when a fire is going. The little guy is just soo cute and i am really glad that he seems to understand that it is hot and dangerous.

Of course making fires isn't the only thing Tristan likes to do. The next big thing it seems is he loves to help clean the floors. Luckily we have 2 swiffers and so i just hand him one while i clean and motors around making car sounds for what is probably close to an hour or so. Now if we can only keep him in this helpful stage things would be much easier as he tends to make a mess faster than you can clean it.

 On another note things around here are busy as usual cept Naomi got some sort of nasty bug in her lungs so she has been really sick the last week. She ended up staying home for the last 3 days and basically slept the whole time, but things are looking up now. Amazingly in all this i managed to find a little bit of time to get back to some projects that have been on my list for a while now and i am super excited to reveal them when i am done – should be super cool. The kitchen project is still on going and we finally go the ceiling fixed up so i can finally get back to it. This weekend will be painting the ceiling and starting to tear out the upper cabinets as we are scheduled to get our cabinets in on the 14th. So if all goes well i am taking 2 days off before christmas and should be able to get the flooring done and backsplash in time for Christmas. Yay! Of course i am keeping my fingers crossed.
