It’s been a while since I’ve wrote you one of these.
I love how last night you let me watch two hours of “The Bachelor” while you found other things to occupy your time. I even caught you glancing once or twice at the TV screen!
I love our trade off of movie nights with each other. You let me watch one of my Chick Flicks or Independent Films (that you know I love) and I let you watch a shoot em’, blow em’ up, scary movie! I think that’s a great trade off!
Your love of my first attempt at Homemade chicken Noodle soup was awesome the other night. I love when you enjoy my cooking! *Fist Pump*
Tonight, you can watch your shows since i hogged the TV all night last night! :).

Isn't it amazing how saying one simple little phrase to someone can brighten their day? I know personally I love receiving compliments. It always puts a smile on my face to know that someone is thinking about me. Giving them out is just as wonderful!
So will you join me in giving out compliments today? Who knows you may change someone's day just by saying a few little words.
How wonderful would that be? To know that you've brightened someone's day!
All of you that read my blog are simply wonderful! You brighten my every day with your comments and words of joy! :).

What were we smoking last night!? We were total goofballs, and I loved every single second of it!
- Showing me the trick Little Kitty does if you feed her tuna
- Me attempting to play “Air Banjo” with all the sound effects! Yes, it was classic!
- Tickle wars
- Wrestling wars
- You taking a “Heartburn” pill that you accidentally chewed up. All the while making some Alien Faces at the disgusting after taste it left in your mouth.
- Then you took a swig of Soda and your mouth foamed up, ha! You had chipmunk cheeks!
- Sucking all the juice off the Dill Pickle
- Rocking out in bed. I - headbanging to my iPod. You - said you were getting motion sickness from your book bouncing around. Lights off. Damn it!
- Cuddle up and fall asleep!

I woke up this morning to about 4 inches of snow blanketing the ground. It's beautiful. However, it dampens my plans of going out today and running errands. Yes, I am the one that REFUSES to drive in snow! Not doing it! Now here I am drinking coffee, doing a load of laundry, and staring at the kitchen which needs to be swept and mopped. It never ends! Oh yes, and the Christmas tree needs to FINALLY come down too.
It was weird falling asleep without J here last night, knowing that he won't be back till Sunday. A strange feeling, and one that makes me appreciate him that much more when he is here. I missed his warmth lying next to me. How he roots around and steals the covers and jacks my pillows, as he just simply is trying to get closer to me. He will be here soon enough, it's just weird not having him here.
He took my camera with him on his camping trip, so no going out and taking pictures of the snow! I hope he took some beautiful ones up in the mountains and woods. I wonder how that's going? Apparently it came a "small blizzard" aka: Kentucky Style where they are camping at, so it shall be interesting to hear the stories. J was going to practice the "Falling in creek" method today, and attempting to start a fire to get warm before you froze. He was just going to roll around in the snow, with nothing on but his boxers, but yikes! That just chills me to the bone even thinking about it.
Last night I ate dinner, chatted with J's niece on Facebook for about an hour, took a 45 minute bubble bath (pure bliss), gave myself a facial, and fell asleep in bed reading with my two cats snuggled up with me.
All in all, a pretty peaceful night.
Now, I better get this show on the road...

You’d walk downstairs after each time you added something new!
A tarp, a hatchet, and a knife – you’re brave!
Not to mention wickedly sexy.
I can’t wait to hear your awesome stories!
Remember every detail, as I don’t’ want to miss a thing!
J is going camping this weekend. Real Camping. No sleeping bags. No food. No shelter. They are building their own shelter out of sticks, leaves, etc. Killing their own food and cooking it over an open fire.
The weather is supposed to be in the single digits and snow. He couldn't be more excited!
And, I can't wait to hear all about it!

Sitting by the water, watching the fish come up and nibble on the insects that may be floating unknowingly by. I would need warm clothes, oh and a pretty scarf. I want a cup of warmth in between my hands, and a pen and paper lying in my lap. No one else is around as the frigid air has kept them away, it’s just me and the beauty that surrounds my thoughts. Thoughts - oh yes, I need to write them down but where do I start? I have so many pouring through my mind, I’m not sure where to start. How do you sort them out, or even fathom to begin? I’ll just start writing, until my mind is at a more normal pace.
The wind is ruffling the water, I watch it ripple into the shore line. The sun is bright this morning, smiling down on all that is beautiful in this life. I should really appreciate the happiness that surrounds me more often. The simple peace of this moment, is more than words can even describe.
*Just a day dream while sitting at work*
