food...good for the heart, and tummy.

We're slowly getting settled into our new place and it FEELS SO GOOD!

We seem to be in a very convenient location - close to the grocery, hardware store, many restaurants, and the library.  Yesterday we got our library cards and the first book we checked out was this:


because on Friday, we picked out a puppy!!

Isn't she adorable?!! (sorry the picture isn't that great - camera was running out of battery)  She's an Australian Shepherd and only 5 weeks old.  We have yet to name her...so far the suggestions include:


Aloysius Snuffleupagus
Temperance
Maggie
Sally
Dottie
Atlas
Geo
Boots
Gladys
Ethel
Max
Liberty
Justice
Brownwin
Yantzey
Zola
Patch
Silky
Viola
Janeatecc
Tai
Jehan
Harris
Do-Bi

Any more?!?

Because she's so young, we won't be able to bring her home until January 1st.

This weekend we've also been doing a lot of cooking.  We stocked our pantry with homemade granola and egg noodles.  We also made some refrigerator pickles, dried apples and the most delicious Honey-Whole Wheat bread.

Last night we busted out the crock pot and roasted a whole chicken with yummy veggies.  Tonight we're having bean soup with some left over chicken.  Both will keep our tummies full at work this week as we both start our new jobs tomorrow!!!

It's been great not working these past few months - traveling, visiting family and friends - but we're both looking forward to work and the routine that it will bring to our days and weeks.

Hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying the festive holiday season.  Until next time....
