I'm enjoying a much needed and quiet day at home. Things have been crazy busy lately and desperately needed a "down day" to recharge before I burn out. I have Christmas carols softly playing the the background and the dog and cat are staying close to me and to the pellet stove that is putting out a toasty warm heat.
I started out my day with a nice hot cup of coffee in one of my favorite Christmas mugs. When I looked down, I noticed it matched my soft and cozy flannel jammies and decided that was a "sign" that I should just stay in them all day. 😉
I let the dog out into the back yard and was greeted with snow and ice blanketing the trees. I settle back on the couch and took in this view out the front.
I love the way the icicles kind of frame the top of my view. And yes, it really is that dark outside in the middle of the day here right now.
I was craving comfort food so I went and pulled some frozen artichoke and cheese raviolis out of the big chest freezer in the garage. I made a simple butter, lemon and garlic sauce to go with it. I had 2 servings of this and still have enough for another helping later tonight.
I've been running my Swagbucks point program today trying to make up for the weeks that it was not working correctly. I need to get more gift cards in order to stock up on those after Christmas sale you know. 😀 That is about as ambitious as I have been. There is still laundry to fold, Christmas cards to write and address and presents to wrap, but that may have to wait until tomorrow. Right now I have Doofy curled up sleeping in my lap and he and I are both enjoying the mutual warmth. Life is good on this cold and snowy day.
