This Week

*I think the garbage men may hate us lately. I've been doing lots of deep cleaning and seem to have an extra bag of garbage (if not two!) each week. We have a three bag limit, which we have been exceeding at time, but so far they haven't said anything. Maybe they are too cold to notice.

*Amy turned 11 months old on the 1st and took her first steps yesterday!
*I've jumped onto the Downton Abbey bandwagon. I'm on season 3 right now. I love it and hate it all at the same time. Anyone else fans? What do you love/hate about it? I'm especially annoyed by Mary, though this season started to really not like Cora. Her voice is so whiny and she has no expression on her face. I'm still loving Anna and Carson the best.

*I'm still not minding this harsh winter that much, though am happy about the warmer temperatures in the forecast. Anything in the 30's sounds like a heatwave now. Hoping it melts enough off the sidewalk that I can walk with the kids and the stroller. Not too confident about walking without the stroller as I fell on the ice last week. So thankful I wasn't holding Amy at the time!


  1. We have at the tops about a bag of garbage a week. Since we raise a lot of our food now days, we just do not have the trash as we once did. I use to be really into Downton Abbey, I stopped watching it because I just did not feel that it promoted Christian values.

    Your baby girl is getting so big! She is a dolly! What a blessing for your family!

  2. Why are you allowed only only 3 bags. I've never heard of something like that. Since it is just the 2 of us we only have 1 or 2 bags a week plus our recycle bin. We also put all newspapers and cardboard in a separate paper bag.

    I love Downton Abbey. I do find Mary annoying and I can't stand that awful Thomas but I like everyone else. My favorites would be Tom, Carson, Mrs Hughes, Mrs Patmore and last but not least Violet.

    Your Amy is a real cutie!!


    1. Many cities in our area impose a limit to the number of trash bags one can put out weekly. If we want to put out more we have to buy tags from City Hall to stick on the bags. We recycle as well and have a limit of three bins, though we manage to usually get by each week with one.
