last night we spent some time elfing....
in the form of bottling some homebrewed beers.
as the bottlecapper, i spent some of my time knitting, while beers were being filled. which seems like a way that i would like to spend all of my days: knitting until a full beer comes my way in need of a cap. i could really spend all day in the kitchen with cody, endlessly making, and brewing, and cooking up new and more awesome consumable goods that bring us even further into the land of self sustainability.
yes. that sounds like a good plan.
although here is the truth, it is that i was tired, and crosby was finally asleep, and my mind was telling me to finish a few projects around the house and curl up in the bed with a few more things checked off my christmas to do list. BUT that list is gone my friends, for december is for living. and i am glad for it.
which brings me to my last post, and my resolution "list".
like i need another list really.
most of it was blank. i went through and wrote down a few things that were my most memorable holiday traditions and things that i sometimes dont seem to make time for and then i spent a few days thinking.
and i realized that what i really wanted and what i was really trying to verbalize was that my true resolution was to live in the moment for the last few days of 2011.
to snuggle and nap.
to slow down.
to enjoy time with family.
to make cookies with my friends.
to stop thinking of things that need to be done.
to bottle beer at night with my husband.
and in one week, i will sit and drink one of those bottled beers.
modeled after the terrapin brewery's wake and bake.
and i will be happy that i bottled these beers with cody late into the night.
so, the moral of this story is that i have a blank sheet of paper numbered 1-31.
and i am filling it in as i go along.
and that feels right.
