I feel like I have a million things to blog about, but I’m going to keep this post fairly short and sweet!
I started reading a book about photography, and I have been having a blast learning about and trying new techniques with lighting, framing, and different angles. I don’t consider myself good at photography, and mostly use my iPhone, but I don’t care. I love it, and that’s all that matters to me!
I created a page for my baking bucket list and crossed one item off of the list on Tuesday!
Cinnamon raisin honey whole wheat English muffins. That’s a mouthful. Literally. A delicious mouthful! I followed this recipe, and just kneaded the dough instead of using a mixing machine with a dough hook because I don’t have one. It was the perfect recipe to bake on a frigid day!
My family’s house is torn apart. Oh my goodness!! On Saturday, my family, Jimmy and I, our friends from church, and my aunt and uncle met at Phipp’s Conservatory for a nighttime winter garden and light show. After the show, Jimmy and I decided to go back to my house instead of going out to eat with everyone because I was feeling tired.
When we got home, I went inside my house and the toilet was overflowing. The whole bathroom was flooded, and the carpet around it was soaked. Water leaked onto our furnace (which resulted in a scary burning smell), and part of the ceiling in our garage fell. Water was leaking into our garage at a super fast rate, and I was honestly scared part of the house was going to just fall in because there was so much water everywhere. The toilet must have been overflowing for hours.
Jimmy saved the day by splashing through the bathroom, and turning off the water supply to the toilet. He then vacuumed up all of the water (well, as much as he could), checked our furnace, and helped me move things in the garage so water didn’t drip on them. After our eventful night we collapsed on the couch and just laughed. Crazy times!!
So, my house now has some major water damage, and a construction company came in and cut out the carpet to let it dry, and also cut out the drywall up to the water line in all of the rooms impacted by the damage. Whew. I’m not sure when everything will be fixed (hopefully soon because less drywall = less heat.. brr), but I am so thankful that the situation wasn’t any worse than it was!
So, those are just a few things that have been going on in my life lately! I’m still on my winter break from school, which has been quite amazing. In my next few posts, I want to discuss my schedule for the spring semester and wedding/life stuff. All exciting things!
What have you been up to lately? How has the weather been where you live?
