Just a few observations.

I never had flannel sheets growing up, but when I married, Bob insisted on flannel for the winter. I can see why. They don't have that shocking cold feel upon first climbing into bed, and snuggle closely throughout the night.  Anyway, our OLD sheets simply disintegrated last week, so when we were at Sam's club we bought a new set. I was going to link to the product, but they aren't on Sam's website (they are bad about that). Anyway, these sheets are AMAZING. So soft, and warm, and just everything you could want for cuddly comfort.

On the other hand, I haven't been enjoying them as I should be, since Daniel still isn't sleeping well with his new teeth.

I've discovered a blog called hugs and cookies that features an amazing-looking new ooey-gooey recipe every day. Will try one for Bob's birthday this week.

Things my mother forgot to warn me about: Beware of vacuuming when fresh out of the shower. No, not because of moisture and electricity, but because the uncombed hair just might flow onto the floor behind you as you crawl under the Christmas tree in search of a power outlet, and some unnamed young person just might have left the power switch on, so that when the plug is inserted into the outlet the vacuum comes on, makes a funny sound and begins to stink while you simultaneously feel a not-so-gentle tug on your scalp. Oh, yes.

50* is just about perfect for working in the garden. I've weeded, laid some path, raked, and spread manure this week. Winter is definitely the time for major works.

Elijah stayed dry for a whole day, so, as promised, we bought him underwear. Even went  the extra mile and got Angry Birds underwear (Riah is jealous). I have heard the word "underwear" about a zillion times every day since then. He does good until it comes time to do a bowel movement. He gets frequent showers now.

Braum's butter is much better than Sam's butter. Sam's is dry and waxy and isn't much cheaper.

Can't remember the other stuff.

In light of my sleep woes, I thought I'd share this verse.
Pro 27:14  He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.

That's one of my favorite verses. I think a corollary is something like:

"He that thumpeth his car stereo, being awake unto the night, it shall be counted as a curse unto him also."


Congrats to Elijah!
