An historic day

Today was Crys' last day at her day job in Alamosa at Adams State University.

We worked long and hard to pay off debt and got to a place where she can quit that job and just work at the 2 or 3 part time jobs that she loves.

Me? I got another 3 years 9 months and 26 days. But who's counting :D ?

It's a new year

We have been getting good rest for the last few nights. It feels so good. I went to nana's for a few days on this little vacation. I spent the time cleaning, dyeing, spinning and cooking. I didn't feel rushed or pressured. We had a little upset with some family getting sick from carbon monoxide poisoning. Thankfully they are on their way to recovery. We are all checking with friends and family to be sure that their detectors are up to par. Seriously people, this shit can kill you. Anyway, when I came home, I was super tired and happy to be here. I did some cleaning. I was too tired to sleep well that first night. The next night I slept 9 hours, the next two nights I slept over 10 hours. Now my brain is functioning again. We are doing a couple projects around the house. The kitties will have a new place to sit in the window. 
I wanted to post pictures of my ravelry exchange because I love all of it so much. 

Catching up a bit

We had our traditional hoppin john, greens, and cornbread for New Year's Day. It was delicious and even though we were quite inebriated, it was fun to make.
