January 2015 Wrap Up

I know I say this all the time, but I can't believe how fast time goes by!! A month into 2015 already!! It just doesn't seem possible.

I thought since I can't make time slow down any, that I would try to take a bit of time at the end of each month and do a little re-cap. Something to help me remember how I spent my time and some of the things that happened during the month. I hope it's something that you can enjoy as well:)

I feel like I made some progress this month on my crafty projects.


Crocheting, a bit of sewing, and a gift basket project for 4-H...
As a crafter, it never seems like we get as much time as we'd like to do our thing, but of course, we also have to live in the 'real' world. So I also had errands to run, mostly for dd:), housework to do and SOOOO many meals to make. One of my favorite new meals for this month was Cabbage Roll Casserole. I added quite a bit more seasoning to this, such as smoked paprika and ground pepper and a few other things I threw in. It was pretty good, and so much easier than rolling up cabbage rolls:)

We also had just a bit of sickness in the household, but not too much. A cold went through our house, but hubby and dd beat it pretty quickly, and while I still have the cough and congestion, I'm feeling really good. Unfortunately, we got some bad news from a close family member who's cancer has come back. We have been spending some extra time with him and are hoping for good news on treatment options and a speedy recovery for him.

All-in-all, this month has been a good and productive one. I hope I can say the same for next month:)
