I made pie for Christmas. Cherry because it’s my favorite, but it turned into cherry soup and I personally liked it even more because of it! I also made a sour cream raisin pie because I remembered my mom liked it, and we hadn’t had it at Christmas for a while. Behold the mother of all sour cream raisin pies, made even better by the absence of meringue! Blech! The recipe is not mine, and I followed it exactly so go here if you want to make it. You want to make it, really you do.
I haven’t even looked at this blog since a week or so before I got married, in August. Huh, how time flies! I started school immediately after marrying Travis.
I am going to let you in on a secret. I totally hate my hair, but I am obviously had no choice in the matter, until a couple of weeks later when I asked Travis to shave it bald.
I loved it, but now I am growing it out and leaving it natural. Which means I have grey hair and it is glaringly obvious. I think I love it.
I also got a job, at a company in a nearby town, working with elderly individuals in their homes, my boss was great at pretending to care, until she couldn’t pretend adequately any longer. I quit and am instead caring for my family, which is a full time job on it’s own, and concentrating on school, Envisage and what I hope will become a crafty side job that will give me lots of personal satisfaction.
It was Christmas just recently, and I forgot my fucking camera at home, It still makes me so mad that I want to hop around the room. I have no pictures of Christmas. *sad panda* But I do have a picture of my new slippers and I KNOW you want to see it!
Thanks Mom! These are the best ones so far!
While I didn’t get any photos of the kids opening presents and hanging out with family, I did get a photo of my kids walking ahead of us on a trail a few days before Christmas. Walking, having fun and laughing, for the most part. My Christmas gift this year, aside from new windows as Travis would point out, was a cohesively working family unit. And I think that is pretty fucking cool. How was your holiday?
