currently {link up} happy anniversaries

This week we are all about the anniversaries. Otto turned !!4!! on Tuesday ♥ Today, Rob and I are celebrating our !!15!! year wedding anniversary ♥ And then next Wednesday Loretta will be !!10!! months old ♥ Such a week of happy milestones.

Currently is a weekly link-up hosted by the lovely Randalin of Harvesting Kale and I am super excited to be co-hosting the series with her. I hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using the provided themes or your own) and please join us by linking up. This week, around these parts, we have been...

Wishing for my same old wish and yet it never comes true. Sun (yeah, you, in the sky) why can't you please just extend the day by a couple of hours? 26 sounds about perfect. No? Whatever, fine. (jerk)

Thinking about the coming year and all of the great things it will bring. I think 2013 is going to be stellar.

Cooking just what I'm supposed to be cooking each night as per our new meal plan system that I mentioned in my previous post. What a relief it is to know you have all the ingredients for your meals of the week and know ahead of the last minute just what's for dinner! This week our meal plan went like this...

Sunday: homemade broccoli cheddar soup
Monday: baked potatoes topped with leftover soup
Tuesday: Otto turns 4! Out to dinner
Wednesday: taco night
Thursday: 15 year anniversary! Fiesta bowl and pasta at home
Friday: homemade pizza
Saturday: homemade vegetable pot pie

I made sure to mention the "homemade" stuff above because it's important to pat yourself on the back a little about these things! Even though most of my homemade stuff is more like half-homemade. Like for our pot pie I will use frozen pie crusts, but still!

Drinking peppermint tea and lots of soda pop. Our whole house caught this headcold thing that is going around and even though it's been a few weeks, I cannot seem to shake the raspy throat part of it. Peppermint tea is my old friend and always a favorite when I'm sick and then nothing sounds better when your throat is acting punk than a little fizzy soda! Coke Zero is my go-to.

Working on that true crime novel I was commissioned to copy edit as well as being back to my regular job as-of Wednesday (goodbye Christmas holidays, until we meet again). It's taking me longer than I'd anticipated to finish the book, but what an awesome project. I'm totally fascinated by the story and a little frustrated with myself and Miss Loretta because right around 9pm each evening she wakes up to nurse herself back to sleep and I can't seem to stay awake beyond that point. I love cuddling, but I am also a sucker for dozing off early so trying to stay up to edit the book has been a challenge. I expect to finish the editing tonight, though, so that I can send it off to the author tomorrow.

That was this week. Here are next week's themes:
missing, thinking, considering, moving, playing

Vitamins A, B-complex, C, and D are found in Sarsaparilla.

Humans, naturally, do not like bitter flavors or foods. The reason is that too often
people consume too much protein at one time and most of it goes to waste.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the
simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
irked while people think about worries that they just don't know about.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the
whole thing without having side effect , people could take a
signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Although it is possible with certain properties in some neighborhoods that the owner
may be willing to accept tenants with these attributes,
the property manager must re-consider managing the properties based on issues of personal safety, reputation, and liability.

Are connected to a website with additional resources or offline resources besides the newsletter.
Another area of significance to the commercial tenant
is the services that will be provided by landlord and reimbursement of
landlord for those services. A cleaning crew or person will
free you up from the mundane task of getting a rental property ready for a new tenant.
Contracts with the local Public Housing Authority will commit landlord's for at least 1 full year.
At the same time, the owner of the barn started acting strange;
I'd say I'd been there two years. Thus pets which
don't scratch the furniture and floors and are not hairy are usually fine with landlords.
