I worked on finishing up some last minute Christmas gifts today. The Beau and I also went to a fund raising event with one of the local micro brewers. It was entertaining. Not only was there some fresh brewed beer (there was some really tasty holiday stouts, not my personal favorite beer, but delicious when you dropped a candycane into it), there was another local place whose specialty is hot chocolate and homemade marshmellows. So there were kiddies about drinking various flavors of coco and taking pictures with a reindeer.
We finally seem to be getting a normal winter for once. It’s been downright cold. To the point of cold and miserable. I’m really not a fan of subarctic temperatures, unless there’s snow. The snow just looks cool in my opinion. It’ll crystallize in mid air and look like fluffy bits of ice cold cotton. And everything looks brighter. I think that’s kind of what’s been hardest this winter. Usually we get snow in October and have a few feet on the ground.
For the month of December, I’m aiming to write something small every day. And there is quite a bit to write about with everything going on. Today, I’m super pleased to write that I finally got an offer on my home that’s down south that I’ve been trying to sell for the last two years. The offer came earlier this week, I countered, and then they accepted. We’ll close shortly after the new year, so the start to 2017 is going to be on a really good note. I’m looking forward to not being bound by financial obligations and finally making headway to freeing myself from debt I had to take on from financially irresponsible people.
I’ve moved hosts and that turned out to be a bit trickier than I was expecting. Things should be working though and back together at least. If there is anything broken, just let me know and I’ll get it fixed. Granted, the domain is not completely moved yet (nameservers are pointed), so if I disappear for a little bit again, don’t be surprised. I’ll be back in a jiffy though!
