January Currently

I hope everyone as a healthy, prosperous, happy 2014!!  Once again I am linking up for Farley's CURRENTLY...

Hawaii has some beautiful weather, but when the tradewinds are gone, it can be a little bit sticky and humid.  Luckily, it is not as sticky and humid like the summer, but I still need some tradewind like "breezes."

My husband works for a great company and it has been very kind to us, but he is always working when I am on vacation :(.  Thankfully it's a federal holiday so he was off today.  We were able to spend some time together before he has to go to sleep because his work time tomorrow begins at 3:30 am.

I enjoyed my Winter break...sleeping in and not really having to think out "school" stuff.  Now I am feeling the pressure to get moving on the things that need to get done.  First thing on my checklist will be report cards.

Our Winter break started a few days before Christmas and will end on January 5th.  With the hustle and bustle of the season, I would like just a few extra days to just to "breathe" and not worry about any gifts to get or desserts to bake.

Holiday times are filled with fun times with family and friends.  I also get some orders for desserts to make for friends and parties.  Parties + dessert baking + lack of sleep = a pretty bad headache.  It also doesn't help that it is a bit warmer than usual.

Memory and/or tradition...
Growing up my family would get together for Christmas and New Year's and we would play lots of games...7-11 is our family favorite.  Each family would purchase gifts and they would be put in the middle.  We would form a circle around the gifts and each player rolls a die.  If you roll a 7 or 11 you get to pick a prize.  It continues until all presents are the fun begins.  Once all gifts are taken, we roll again and this time if you roll a 7 or 11 you can take a prize from someone else.  This continues for 5 more minutes.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and created many memories.  Once again, happy 2014 and keep on creating more memories with your loved one.

Happy New Year,
