I made a ricotta pie with our eggs. The ricotta was extra left over from our baked ziti dinner. We did not need heat for several days. I opened the windows when warm enough, to bring fresh air into the house. The other days, we heated with wood. I used a 10% off code for items needed from Vitacost, and went through Swagbucks, which gave me another 15 points per dollar. Listed several items on ebay. Grated carrots and soft apples for the pups and put the carrot tops in the broth bag. Collected rain water. Dumped water bottle and glasses into the humidifier on the woodstove.

As I use a fresh Christmas tree, it goes up 1 to 2 weeks before Christmas, and I keep it up through New Years. The first of the coming week, I will take down the tree and pack up any other decorations, which were few this year. I made Baby Bella sandwiches, and added the bottom bits to the broth bag. May the coming year be all that you hope for!
