I admit it ... I'm feeling pretty lazy lately. Not that I have time to be lazy; because I really don't. I have tons of things that need to be done. Now whether or not they get done ... that's another story.
I have a file cabinet of papers that have been haunting me ... saying "tax time" "tax time" ... "are you going to get the tax papers taken care of or what?"
That really wasn't the file cabinet haunting me ... it was my hubby! Oh... I swear... the day I die he might as well go with me; because he sure is going to be lost if I go before him. I have tried to organize things that "IF" I should not be available to him he'll be able to figure some of this stuff out ... BUT ... I have come to the conclusion that he is going to be a pain in the butt to my kids because they'll be the ones having to help him figure things out.
Note to self ... be nicer to the kids :)
Now he wants me to get on the horn and call around for a bunch of insurance quotes on the house, autos, boat, etc... SO.......... do I jump right at that request? Nope... I'm lazy. I'm still "trying" to get into the taxes mode of mind. So far it's not happening. I think I'll procrastinate a bit longer on both.
Besides that ... it's cold out.
Now for a northerner like me to say it's cold out ... it's COLD OUT. Tonight ~ with the windchill factors figured in we're suppose to be around MINUS 30F. Today's high with the windchill factor figured in is around minus 15. If you stand outside for 10 minutes with unprotected exposed skin you're a candidate for frostbite. Not a good thing :(
Days like this I appreciate having the big wood stove and a shed full of wood; but just wish I didn't have to go outside to fill it. When it's really cold like it is now we like to put some wood on it about every 8 hours or so.
The guys like this cold weather ... it's making ice! As you know, our family is partially reliant on the fur harvesting industry. The guys have been out beaver trapping and a good thick layer of ice for them to be on sure puts this momma more at ease. It is hard, laborious work in the winter for the the guys chopping through a foot or more of ice to make their sets. Here they are with two of four beaver they harvested last weekend.
Nothing much going on around here. The guys have been trapping. I've been trying to be more creative with my cooking ~ trying to cut out the carbs isn't easy. I'm missing my whites ... flour, potatoes, noodles and rice.
I think I'll go make some jello. Isn't that creative! I don't want to blow my lazy streak!!
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
