Congrats to Angie, who won for December! Good work! (It pays to check in before going out to celebrate, hee hee.)

And so begins our chatty thread for January 2013! (Gotta type and write it to get used to the new digit at the end.) Whoever posts last before midnight Eastern on January 31st is our next winner.

Now chat away! :)

I'm just about ready for a morning nap now that the pets and kids have been fed. I plan to read later (first Ranger's Apprentice book plus the non-fic one as well), maybe play some games with the boys and make pork roast for supper. :)

Happy New Year!!! 

Thanks for the congrats!  Our New Year's was great....family, food and fun!  We are all dragging a bit today.  I am thinking about watching a movie and finishing the hat I am knitting this evening and of course there will be reading!  :)

I just made some hot tea....lemon herbal for Dh who has a horrible cough and English Breakfast for me. 

The terrific two's birthday is in 8 days. They remind me every day, lol.  They have picked the restaurant they want to eat at and everyone we invited can make it!  Yay!  I need to find some time to finish gift shopping.

Hope you all are having a great day!!!

Ruth - It's chilly here, but not that cold. Stay warm! I'm glad you're having a relaxing day. :)

Angie - I'm sorry your hubby's got a cough. English Breakfast sounds good. I've got decaf orange pekoe right now, been using chamomile a lot lately, so I needed a change. (Though the chamomile was to help with headaches and sometimes my stomach, too, so I'm grateful I keep stocked up.) Hope the birthday preparations continue to go smoothly. :)

Reading so far and early lunch thanks to Hubby. I think banana bread will be ready soon, done with plenty of time for the pork roast. In the meantime, the boys are colouring and we're indulging in some 90's nostalgia with first season episodes of "The Fresh Prince." (Hee hee.)

We've watched Bourne movies for the past few nights. Should see if we can find the fourth one, which we haven't watched yet. I'm enjoying the action flicks since I usually end up picking something more girly when it's movie time. Hubby's good about watching them with me or half-ignoring them. ;)

I took the boys to visit my parents today, so not that much time at home today. I'm looking forward to a bit of cleaning and organising tomorrow, maybe a trip to the library too. (I suspect we'll drive since it's been chilly lately, otherwise I enjoy taking a bit of a long walk when it's time for new books.)

I wasn't planning on errands today, just the library, but we ended up getting a few things done while out this morning. One is that my car gets a new muffler next week after being a really rumbly car for about a month. Feeling less energetic than I wanted for cleaning today, but my list is probably short enough to handle and then I won't feel guilty about sitting around for most of the evening. ;)
