Health & Blessings

Thank you for all the prayers and thoughts for Aaron's job promotion. I am happy and excited to report he received the job promotion! Yay! He use to have a part time contract job through the dealership. He was hired as a employee full time, with at least 16+hours of overtime each week. He is just finishing up his first full week and states he is really enjoying it, even with all the snow and cold weather he has to tackle each day. We bought him new snow boots last night which will help with the snow as well. Aaron being hired full time could not have come at a better time. It is a huge blessing to us and our future.

I woke up on Wed with a sore throat which has turned into a full fledge cold. Coughing, running nose, sore throat, etc. I haven't been doing much since then do to lack of energy needless to say. I do have a growing list of housework and craft projects to work on though.

If anyone has a grungy pantry cake recipe could they please let me know either by email it or leaving it in the comment section please. I have never made one of these, and I can't seem to find a recipe that looks like it would make them grungy.

With what little energy I have had this is what I have been doing....

I have cranberries drying in the spare room. I bought 2 bags of them on sale, I strung the good ones, and tossed the bad ones out to the birds.

I also have fruit drying. Oranges, limes and lemons in the dehydrator I borrowed from my mom. I did put the slices in lemon juice before hand but they still don't seem to be coming out the right way. I will share picture when they are done.

Last night Aaron did pull me out of the house to the store and to dinner.
I picked up some wonderful fabric to use for some valentine day projects that I am starting to work on for a swap and a giveaway here on my blog. So be sure to keep checking back.

This weekend I am going to pull all my energy together and start working on my craft room,
since it looks like a tornado hit.
