The last month has brought late birthday cake, and sunny winter walks. Too much work, and not enough play are pushing me close to burn out, but I am managing with a newly discovered a love of hot yoga, and a few short runs in the cold.
David's cooking has gotten even better - we discovered persimmons (yum!), made fresh pasta, shellfish, sausages, cheese, flan... and I'm sure there are a million other things, it is amazing the food coming out of this tiny apartment kitchen. :)
I am proud to say that I have finished and mailed all of my Christmas cards! I think we may forgo a Christmas tree this year, but I am making peppermint bark snowflakes to take into work, and giving my staff movie tickets. I will probably bake some cookies and I have quite a few jars of jam - that should take care of everyone. :)
In two weeks I have a major test to take for work which I am not feeling prepared for, but once that is done I should be able to enjoy the last of the year. Christmas with David, a quick trip to see my parents in Oregon, and then celebrating New Year's and our anniversary. I can't believe it has been 5 years!
