So maybe it's not the best idea I have this CD in my car. But ugh - from beginning to end, it makes me feel so amazing blessed that I ever got to play with these people and SO BLASTED HOMESICK. This song rings in my bones and I have to listen to it at full blast. If I lived near Michael, I'd insist on rerecording the violin track, but regardless it's all gravy. I love how every single one of us is singing on it and it makes my whole body relax on the chorus. I'm so happy and sad all at the same time. MUSICS WHY YOU SUCH A CRUEL MISTRESS???? And why on earth am I living in Wisconsin?? It was 12 degrees driving WonderGirl to school this morning. Although as I was driving home the bank thermometer had moved the temp up to 14.
Thanksgiving was fabulous. Family came in and the husband cooked everything and the kids all played beautifully and even napped and then there was shopping and then they all left and then I crashed and spent the majority of Saturday in bed. Then Sunday we woke up early, were on the road just before 7am and drove 3 hours to a baby blessing in Iowa City, stayed for church, had some lunch then drove the 3 hours home and still made it home before bedtime. I'm pretty impressed with that one.
Now we're back home, the Christmas tree is up and the kitchen looks like a bomb went off. We were able to maintain sanity all week, but then people left and I got tired - and then made tacos for dinner - well, it's not pretty. So that's my to-do for the day. Speaking of, did y'all know I make my own flour tortillas from 3 ingredients in like 20 minutes? I took some pictures, I think I'll make a blog post about it tomorrow. Because I feel like if I'm ever halfway decent at cooking something, it must be the easiest thing in the world and therefore everyone should be doing it.
But for now, here's an instagram of our wee tree.
