home at last

December 16, 2009

I’m home! And somehow received what felt like a warm welcome despite record cold temperatures. We’re talking -37 when I got off the plane and -44 by the time we got home from Kevin’s Christmas party. In such weather it can be a challenge to find the motivation to leave the house but fortunately we’ve had no such problem yet. We wouldn’t have thought of missing the annual reunion with his coworkers (who are truly like family) after 3 months to a year away and then Christmas preparations have kept us going the rest of the time.

Kevin has been finalizing his big give and is printing our calendar as I type. I’ve been cleaning the corners of our kitchen and closets but am ready to start preparing for a lot of little gifts. I’m finding I’m not interested in much other than useables and consumables so I’m trying to stick to those themes for what I give.

I’m quite happy with what I’ve come up with but of course I can’t share until I’ve actually given them away…. sooon though!

I’ll be getting my hands on a camera soon since I forgot mine at school so stay tuned!



  1. I think I’ll leave the -44° to you guys out there. 😉

  2. Must be good to go home but -44- holy hell that’s cold! We love love loved your calendar this year… just saying…. Enjoy your holiday!

  3. I’m so glad it’s not -44 anymore. So glad! And I’m very happy to hear that you like the 2009 calendar Annie. It will be a few days before the new one is ready for delivery but both of you can hold a spot on your wall for the next one:)

  4. Welcome Home !t must be wonderful to see K again! I hope you and K have a wonderful Christmas together. Look forward to seeing the Christmas presents you made!
