To all of you who asked, yes, we’re going to make that wine cork thang into a bulletin board. Although I’m kinda not wanting to cover it up with papers-I like it too much! We still have more corks too (not kidding! there’s a lot of wine in our lives I guess) so I think we’re going to do trivets next.
As I told y’all yesterday, we got an awesome snowstorm here in Portland. I was loving it. I settled in with some quality reading, tea, and yogurt in front of the fire
So playdate with Mama Pea, pretty snow, homemade granola to stuff my face with… Pretty great day. The only problem?
My fiance works in Salem. Google maps tells me it takes 51 minutes to go from his office to our house. Normally, he takes a van pool, and I pick him up.
Yesterday, he left work at 4. And got home at 9:30.
Turns out snow isn’t so awesome when you have a commute.
When the poor man finally got home (bus to Willsonville, train to Beaverton, car ride from there thanks to a stranger, walking the last few blocks) he was FREEZING. I did my best to warm him up
(Made from the stock I cooked on the Little House on the Prairie stove! )
Since most of his office had similar commutes last night, they worked from home today. That meant we could hang out over breakfast
It’s a lot nicer than our normal morning routine of me microwaving him some oatmeal to eat in the car.
Then we worked from home Target
Christmas clearance for 75% off? Heck yes. But they didn’t have ANY sourpatch candy canes. I cried.
And tomorrow is New Years Eve! Weirrrd. What’re you doing for New Years? We’re going to see Pink Martini downtown.
