Better Late Than Never

Even though it’s only the 30th, we’ve noticed that almost every store in town has already taken down their festive Christmas decor in favor of Valentine’s Day paraphernalia. Holy hearts everywhere, Batman- it’s not even January yet.

So in an effort to buck the fast-forward trend, I thought I’d share this simple and amazingly creative Christmas tree idea (even if it’s 5 days late). It’s a fun way to “recycle” your books for the holiday, and there’s no pile of pine needles to vacuum when your holiday spirit runs out. Here’s the link for ya.



Kitchen, You Are Missed

This not having a functioning kitchen thing is getting old.

It may sound strange, but we were too lazy to go out to eat tonight. Instead, we mustered the energy to attempt cooking in our counterless and sinkless kitchen. Fortunately, the meal itself (chocolate chip pancakes) was relatively easy to make using a cabinet top as our work surface. We also confirmed that our stovetop still functions after almost 3 months of dormancy.

It’s the already annoying task of clean-up that reminds you how frustrating it is to not have a kitchen sink. Let’s just say doing dishes in the bathroom doesn’t exactly inspire me to play chef again anytime soon.
