Baby Its Cold Outside

It has been bitter cold here the last couple of days. I woke up to find these ice crystals on the inside of our last single pane window! While they are beautiful they sure are a testament to the need for updating this last and final window. I did a bit of research on it last year and hope to actually get to replacing it this summer. I think it is a project I can tackle on my own. For now, I'll briefly enjoy the ice crystals from the warmth of INSIDE!

Feeling Domestic

Nothing like some frigid weather to drive even me to the the kitchen. Truth be told, cooking is not my favorite activity. When my husband found me I was existing on cans of corn and green beans. No cooking. No dishes. I gave two new recipes a try today. Cranberry Thumb Prints that I found to be slightly disappointing and Butternut squash soup.

The soup was very tasty and easy. If you are lucky enough to have some squash still in storage, give it a try. Recipes abound on the internet!
