A wonderful thing happened today when I got home – I went to get the mail, and it was still light enough to see! I’m so happy that the days are finally getting longer!
Dan stole my thunder in announcing that the laundry room was ready to be used. Ready to be used, mind you, but definitely not complete. I still need to finish the tiling and paint, but at least we can do laundry again! Given that this was my minimum goal for the month of January (a usable laundry room on the main floor), I’m pretty tickled with this accomplishment.
But why didn’t we get more done? aka other fun things we did in January? One more thing that’s been keeping us busy is salsa lessons. That’s right, my wonderful husband’s Christmas gift to me was 5 weeks of salsa lessons. Both of us are really enjoying them, and will probably sign up for the next level. Just not next month, since in February I’ll be taking a cake-decorating class. Because everyone can use more (and prettier!) cakes in their life! I’ve never been good at decorating pastry, and I have recently fallen off the baking bandwagon, so I’m hoping this class will kickstart both of those. Hopefully lots of pictures to come from that course… and if you’re lucky and live nearby, maybe lots of baking, as well!
