Good morning!!!! How are you all? I am just patiently counting down the days to a nice long break from work. 😉
There is not much to report around here… so I will just continue to fill you in on what we have been doing the last few months at home.
My mom got Tito a new bed and he LOVES it. We had to get Riley one too. They only use it during the day though… at night at 3 dogs end up on my side of the bed.
I’ve been wanting my husband to build this table over our washer and dryer for some time now, but we just never got around to it. Across from the washer and dryer in the laundry room, we do have a nice counter and cupboards underneath so I didn’t necessarily need the extra room for folding, but I didn’t love the look of the washer and dryer by themselves so I decided I wanted this table. It is free standing so can always be removed and we added the backing piece because the wires come up above the washer and dryer and are quite the eye sore. my husband built this and I painted and stained it and we had it completed in a couple days! A productive quarantine project!
Funny story… my husband asked me to go on a bike ride a couple weeks ago and one afternoon we decided to go. I had Tito in the basket (he loves it) and we were riding and about a mile from our house when I tried to change gears and kept hearing this clicking noise. I told Jon and he said it was fine. It was not fine. He finally got on my bike to try to figure out the issue and the chain immediately felt off and the reflector shattered everywhere. LOL. We are waiting on a piece to come in the mail so he can fix it, but I had to carry Tito home while Jon walked both bikes home. LOL.
I love a real Christmas tree, but we are usually always out of town for Thanksgiving and Christmas so we typically just do a fake tree. But this year since we knew we were going to be in town, I was adament we get a real tree. We are lucky enough to live across the street from a little pop up Christmas tree yard/tent so the week of Thanksgiving we headed on over with our little cart. We picked a tree, strapped it down, and headed back home. Our neighbors were probably all laughing at us, but I will say it was quite nice not having to strap the tree to a car roof!
Thanksgiving this year was just us two, but my husband insisted we still cook a traditional Thanksgiving meal. He was so excited to smoked the turkey and said it was his best one yet!
On Thanksgiving morning he requested breakfast sandwiches, which ended up a great idea since he had breakfast for a week!
We made butternut squash soup, cornbread, mashed potatoes, stuffing, a turkey and cranberry sauce (from the can ;)).
I go through phases with my fitness. Sometimes I like to run or do yoga for a year, but the past couple years I have been very into strength training. I always follow a workout (usually found on instagram) so I have a plan, but typically only workout 15-25 minutes most days a week. When the weather is nice I try to get in a bunch of walks with my pups, but lately, I have been slacking. What do you do for exercise?
I have to end with few cute pictures of the pups. Our house is not set up for both my husband and I to work at home right now. We have one built in desk so this means I am moving from room to room during the day. Sometimes I work in one of our guest rooms and the pups are all always by my side.
These two have come a long way. I wouldn’t say they like each other, but we are making strides. 🙂
That’s all I’ve got for today!! Tell me what you have been up to this year!! Any new fun projects or activities during quarantine?
