Hi there! How is it mid-January right now? What?! I had a ton of fun reading everyone’s comments on my last post. I feel like I learned a lot about you guys! I definitely need to ask you deep questions more often 🙂
So, my life lately. It has been good. Very good!
Things I have been up to:
-Working on my goals for 2015
-Recovering from a sinus infection
Once Sticker left our house, we welcomed Jake (from State Farm… ha) one day later. He stayed with us for a little over a week, and was such a delightful dog to have around.
I don’t know if anyone reading this has a golden retriever, but I have noticed that every golden retriever I’ve met has what I like to call “Elvis arms.” By Elvis arms, I mean that their arms have fur that looks like leather fringe jackets that Elvis used to wear.
Okay, I’ll stop with my weird thoughts.
As for working on my goals for 2015, I have been taking care of my nails, meal planning, decorating, and reading. Woo hoo! Things I am reading: the Chronological Bible with Jimmy, The Remedy for Love (meh, don’t recommend), and #2 on this list. I just started getting into audio books. Life changed. Dramatic? Yes.
On the meal planning front, I have made slow cooker chicken tortilla soup, chickpea soup, homemade pizza, and chicken tikka masala. The chicken tortilla soup is pictured below. Gotta love slow cooker meals!
The temperature outside hit 30 degrees on the night I made the chicken tikka masala, so Jimmy and I celebrated by grilling the meat outside. Yeah, 30 degrees definitely feels warm in Pittsburgh compared to temperatures like this…
A windchill of -15 degrees? That’s okay when the sunrise looks like this…
I mentioned that I had a cold around New Years, and the stuffiness never went away. It got to the point where my teeth hurt, because apparently swollen sinuses push on the nerves to your upper teeth. Ouch. So, I went to Med Express and got some prescriptions last night. I don’t like taking medicine (I’ve had some bad experiences), but I realize that I am incredibly blessed to live in a country where I have access to medicine and health care and so much more. Even when I’m sick, I am beyond blessed.
So, that’s life lately. I have also been working. Yes, I am employed! It’s not what I expected, but in the best way possible. It’s better, and I love it. I will blog about this soon 🙂
Since I love asking questions, here are two for you…
