Project365: February 20-26

February 26 We had a busy day of deep-cleaning our apartment of almost 3 years. Needless to say we were all exhausted…one of us even fell asleep on the way home. ;)

February 24 I’ll be honest, it gets cold in our house once the sun goes down. It’s not unusual to find my husband sporting a winter hat while sitting on the couch during the evening hours. Tonight, was no exception.

January 22 We’re the proud owners of a netbook. It’s tiny and cute…and it has a webcam. I’ve wanted to replace my laptop ever since it broke 4 years ago. It’s not perfect, because it’s not my laptop, it’s also not colorful (black is so boring) and I can’t customize the wallpaper (seriously?!)…oh, and it’s tiny - haha, among other little things. ;) But I think the more I use it the more I’ll appreciate and love it. :)

February 21 It’s still snowing outside. 36 hours of continuous snow accumulates, that’s for sure. Peter has gone out to shovel three times today. While he was out, I was in…unpacking another box. In honor of unpacking my toiletry/cosmetic box, I applied lipstick.

February 20 | Today’s picture is grainy (what’s new, right?) because I was too lazy to actually go outside. Instead, I took a picture of my husband shoveling from my kitchen window. Saint Paul is getting dumped on with another load of snow. It’s been snowing non stop since 10am this morning. So far we’re at 13” with 5-7 additional inches expected tonight through tomorrow. So much for Spring being right around the corner.

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …

We are His portion and He is our prize...

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

happy birthday, husband.

My husband celebrated his birthday on Wednesday. It was a very laid-back birthday (per his request). I didn't want his birthday to be boring and yet I wanted to respect his wishes. This year he bought his own present (something that he really wanted and only he could buy since I have no expertise in the world of hunting), so I knew gifts were going to be small and not *that* special. 

I decided to go all out and make yummy food and treats and surprise him with those. I made cinnamon rolls the day before, hiding them in the refrigerator the next morning. The morning of his birthday, I snuck down, popped the chilled dough in the oven and made some coffee, sneaking back upstairs to get the baby up. The smell of them baking+the smell of the coffee brewing was intoxicating and a wonderful smell to wake up to. He was able to enjoy a hot roll right out of the oven with a cup of coffee before heading off to work. They were a yummy birthday treat and I think they were one of his favorite th…
