Winter calm

We're currently on a house-buying hiatus (for another couple of months at least), and all the houses have people in them. So, other than a new faucet here and a sheetrock patch there, we're kind of done. Which is a weird feeling.
Yeah. That's the spot.

So, we have time to do other things! Like a quick winter camping trip on the shortest day of the year. We were in a little state park cabin but nearly had to spend the night in the woods because we went a little bit too far out on our trek and the light ran out.
Cool hat selfie!
And we've been expanding the rock collection. Turns out grandpa Walt has a pretty impressive pile of rocks, which he is more than willing to share with anyone silly enough to want them. Everybody's got a hobby.

And the craziest thing of all is that we cancelled the internet. Yep, no internet at home. Except on our phones, of course, so we're not going to start twitching from the lack of email access. But cell coverage is so spotty over North that it's no fun at all to scroll down Facebook anymore. The theory is that we'll get way more things done in our lives; I'll keep you all posted!


  1. I also collect rocks for the garden! My husband has literally had to pull over so I can grab them off the side of the road. So glad you took some time off. Happy New Year!
