cheese a.

It's December and we are officially geeky for the holidays. I could do without the Black Friday deals** and consumer message overload during this time, but I'm happy to report that this weekend will overflow with cheesy holiday activities because that's who we are and that's what we do. Some people don't get into which I think is totally cool. I just happen to be one of those people who think cheesy things are fun. Tomorrow we head to the woods to cut down our tree! The car will be on the road with coffee in-hand at 9am. This year they'll be a gang with us and there is a Mandatory Flannel rule for tree huntin' day, as well as a ceremonial whiskey shot to go down the hatch before the cut. Sunday the holiday explosion continues with cookie baking/decorating, Bailey's and Hot Totties, all whilst Love Actually, The Family Stone and perhaps Christmas Vacation play in the background.


These are the times when I wish I had a fireplace. And some snow. At least I can go to the mountains for the snow part.

Wouldn't it be great to have a fireplace in say, your bedroom? Or your dining room? OR even your bathroom?

Have great weekends!

**Speaking of Black Friday, did ya'll see Patagonia's"Don't Buy This Jacket" messaging?
Common Threads Initiative

WE make useful gear
that lasts a long time
YOU don’t buy what
you don’t need

WE help you repair
your Patagonia gear
YOU pledge to fix
what's broken

WE help find a home
for Patagonia gear
you no longer need
YOU sell or pass it on*

WE will take back your Patagonia gear that
is worn out
YOU pledge to
keep your stuff out
of the landfill
and incinerator

TOGETHER we reimagine
a world where we take
only what nature
can replace

I'm not making promises, but there MIGHT be homemade donuts for the car ride... new tradition. :)
