From Ann of McGuffy’s Reader:
“The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by myself. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts!”
And away we go! Here are this week’s statements with my fill-ins:
- My favorite herb or spice is… Ginger!
- An herb or spice I dislike is… Star Anise:
It’s a pretty herb, but anything that tastes or smells like black licorice is on my “nothankyouverymuch” list. I’m just not a fan – of anything that tastes like black licorice, so Star Anise is not going to be added to any dish by me.
Lately, I have been working on… Unpacking! The stacks’o’boxes are getting smaller, though, so there’s definitely progress being made. Moving sucks as a general rule, but at least unpacking is more fun than packing, though it does go slower, as I’m deciding where to logically put everything.
The cats sure have been having fun with the boxes, though… In this picture, Shorty was battling with our puppy Reddington and kept trying to disappear inside this box:No luck, though – but she did relocate to one of the highest boxes and snuggled with her sister, Nautica.
- This Winter was… Very cold compared to previous years! And it’s fairly rare for us to get snow here in the Pacific Northwest, so when it does snow, we relish the opportunity to enjoy it, because it makes the gray dreariness look so much better as we anxiously await the arrival of spring.
Now it’s time to Celebrate the Small Things! I’m joining in this fun blog hop to join some awesome bloggy friends and meet new ones – click on the badge for more information and if you’d like to play along, too!
This week (and probably this entire year) I’m celebrating our new house. For those just joining in, you can check out the house tour here if you’re interested. The picture below are deceiving, as they make the house look smaller than it actually is.
I absolutely love this house, and look forward to having everything unpacked and ready for its close-up in the coming weeks. God really blessed us with this gem! And I’m extra excited I’ll have a dedicated Craft Room and dedicated Winemaking Room – something I’ve wanted for years! Stay tuned for all the fun projects that will be happening around here!
That’s a wrap! Hope you join in the fun! Check out the other Friendly Fill-Ins participants and join in if you feel the urge for some fun!
Fridays are more fun with these blog hops:
