We are better!

I made my kids clean their rooms yesterday. Not a fun time, but I'm relieved it's done. TV/art room is next (meh)

I got handmade cone incense from an etsy seller. Divine! I bought lavender and vanilla scents. Vanilla made me want to dance and clean. Lavender is putting me to sleep. 😍

It's a new moon and I have resolutions on my mind, so I started on "cleaning the old year out of the house." Early this year because there's a lot to do!
  • I painted in my laundry room - used up the leftover paint. It looks pretty good now!
  • Shopping - endless shopping lately, and its not even fun anymore. And stores have been packed with stressed out crabby women :hide preparing for house guests.

I love before-adoption and after-adoption pics of shelter dogs. The contrast in their body language can be striking! Here is Splash! (Not adopted yet, still technically a foster)

Yesterday DH asked DS7 what he is thankful for. DS7 said, "Splash!" :love

Hunting season is over for my family. DH got an 8 point buck. He is getting it taxidermied. 3 deer in the freezers - they are packed! I need to check for meat dated 2020 - we just finished up some from 2019. 🙈 We didn't harvest lamb this year, so the venison should last just over a year. I want to can some meat so I have more wiggle room in my freezers.

Busy few days and then I can focus on cleaning. We might get a mess of snow on Tuesday, so maybe I'll can and clean then?

Busy day! The shelter got 5 big 4 month old puppies in. I helped a friend getting a support group together. It was the first session - not well advertised, no new attendees. I'm glad I went anyway.

4-H stuff is getting into swing. Gotta keep my head on straight and not drop any balls.
