I love traditions.

We've been going Matt's house for at least 5 years for a Christmas party / White Elephant Exchange... As I remember past years a few things come to mind: over-sized Homer dolls, reappearing toilet seats, dancing to the record player, eatable crickets, Nana, Tuesday night friends, the fire place, and friends have come and gone... Good times.

Do you have any holiday traditions?

Cold Shoulder and 7 Minute Commute

I've been silent because I have been busy and ... you ready for this ... because my camera is broken! I am lost without it, I don't even have a small pocket camera to get me by. I can't tell you how many times I've wished I had a camera, any camera, and how many shots were missed. Especially today, with the mountains lightly dusted with snow...

But there is some good news. Goodbye trusty camera, hello new camera. That's a premature hello... I'm in the process of finding one and I am very excited, any recommendations?

In other news: we moved!

What I love about our new place so far:
  • the fireplace! ... with no heater in the house, the fireplace is heaven AND essential
  • living communally - I really enjoy it!
  • our great meals together
  • our CSA box
  • the compost
  • Oscar
  • our plan to get chickens!
  • the yard
  • the patio
  • the neighbors
  • 5 minute walk to the Goldline
... all this more than makes up for the fact that I know how a whole SEVEN minute commute to work.
