Meh, it's winter.
No one likes being house bound thanks to Mother Nature, but what can you do except to make sure you have gas in your car, food to cook and a generator in case of a power outage. Loss of the internet will always bite the big one if it happens, but we have books and games so all should be well.
I got my son outside earlier to make snowballs and listen to the snow crunch under his feet. I do think he has a cold coming on again which makes me cringe. Poor kid's nose has been running so much this winter it is crazy.
My garden(s) in their present hibernation state.
I have been looking at seed catalogs, trying to decide what I would like to add to my vegetable list. But I am still unsure. I do know I want kale and leeks again, they grow so well in my garden. Other than that, I am still tossing around all sorts of ideas on what to grow.
Since I can be easily distracted, I came across the site, ZeroWasteHome. This is not new to me, but I never really read her "tips" page. If you are a frugal person or homesteader, you probably already implement some if not most of her suggestions. Even if you are not and are interested in ways to cut back on your waste, take a gander at her 100 Tips.
We signed up for Amazon Prime. They were offering a promotion of $72 for the year. With my credit card points we got it for $30 so why not? So far I like it. What I don't like is that they and Netflix have a lot of the same movies and TV shows, barring the ever obnoxious HBO who fights everyone and gave their streaming rights only to Amazon. (Yes, HBO pisses me off and yes I have watched a lot of the shows which are usually pretty awesome, but still.) I want Netflix and Amazon to compliment each other not compete, but I am a peon in their worlds so my opinion is moot.
Anyway, after going through what Amazon had to offer, I chose to begin watching the tv series Hannibal. It is downright creepy and everyone's acting is marvelous. What is most exciting for me is that Richard Armitage, fabulous actor and delicious eye candy to boot, will be joining the cast as a serial killer. Rock on.
On Netflix I began watching the animated series Bob's Burgers. A little demented, a little silly and a ton of fun. The humor is not for everyone, but I am not everyone so I dig it.
Now I am off to have some tea. May you all have a nice evening and if you are in the path of this snowstorm, stay safe.
