After a wonderful Christmas and New Year's, we have been BUSY with some of our inside projects. I received a beginner's cheese making kit for my birthday and we have tried, unsuccessfully, to make Mozzarella cheese - only to find out, it is probably the hardest cheese to make. It looked easy, but we couldn't get the curds to join up right to make the stringy cheese texture. So, we're going to try some cheddar next. Curds stay curds, just pressed together tightly. Will keep you all updated! Then on to home improvement projects. Mom's bedroom has been painted a really pretty light green shade and it looks GOOD!!! The last week and a half, we have been remodeling our guest bathroom. New tub, new tile in the tub area as well as on the vanity and a paint job of the old vanity. (Plus plumbing, rebuilding the shower walls, sanding and all the stuff you don't see by just looking). It turned out pretty good looking. Husband is SO GOOD and talented to do all the destruction and reconstruction. In the meantime, in the evenings when we are exhausted from all that construction, I have been working on more sweaters; one for Kirby and one for me, just have to get that last skein of yarn for Kirby's and it will be done. The back of mine is about half done. Should be finished by summer - so we'll probably not get to use them until next winter. Sophie is glad we are done with the remodel - she's tired!! No naps in her afternoons as she felt she had to keep an eye on what we were up to!! Superbowl was fun. We made flat bread chicken bacon ranch pizza, semi-spicy wings and fried up a few "nachos" from our low carb wraps - all turned out pretty good. Go Giants!
