Hibernating in January
Not much is new here. The Christmas decor has been put away except for the things that are 'winter' and strings of light that I need in the darkness of January.
I put my Civil War reading aside for the holidays. The Christmas reading that I did this year was wonderful. Most of my time I spent reading an anthology I'd picked up years ago at a thrift store (where else? yes. i heard you!). So now I'm wondering whether I should start reading the Civil War book that is presently on my lap, or if I should read something happier in these dark days of winter.
When I have free time I am perusing Pinterest. I've got a bunch of (hopefully)good low-carb recipes pinned that I plan to try soon. This month I've made several batches of lotion that have worked wonders on my dry hands. But mostly I pin craft and repurposing ideas. Like I need any more ideas. But it's fun, and who doesn't need more fun in their life?
After all the Christmas parties were over we had our carpets cleaned. THGGM had purchased a groupon for it. It did not look bad immediately after they finished, but OH MY did it look AWFUL the next day. One spot in particular was a stain that they said could not be removed. It was a blueberry stain. Well, the carpet cleaners couldn't get it out, but the stain remover recipe I found on Pinterest certainly did - and I had everything in the house to make it. So the stains are coming up, but the carpet has the feeling like there is still A LOT of soap in it.
Well. That was boring.
But seriously, when one is hibernating there really isn't all that much to say.
