At the beginning of the week we got a little bit of snow, but since then it has steadily warmed up and rained off and on. The snow is melting away and water is running down the storm drains as it should. We've experience no flooding and so far our home is safe and sound. For that, I am truly grateful.
Sunday was Chicken Enchilada night and my girls were super excited to have me back in the kitchen. I made a nice big pan and we had loads of yummy leftovers to enjoy for another supper and a couple of lunches.
I made Valentine cards using paper and envelopes I already had. I found the image online and printed it off on my printer.

As time allowed I continued to work on my crochet project.
I did a store survey to add bonus points to my Fred Meyer rewards card.
I forgot to tell you guys that one of our chickens is laying again. We got 5 eggs last week and 3 the week before. Yaaaaay!! I love you Edith!

I did a BIG grocery shop at Winco. I loaded up on produce and filled in some blanks on my pantry list. I also picked up herbs and spices as well as lentils and dried beans in the bulk section. I got home with so much stuff I had to break it up into more than one picture for you guys!

I took my oldest in to the orthodontist and it looks like she may be getting her braces off and moving into a retainer in about six weeks! So exciting!
We got some really good news last week for my youngest. We found out that our insurance, which does not have orthodontic coverage, is going to cover braces for her because of her cleft palate. The cleft palate makes her situation more complex and therefore the orthodonture is considered medically necessary! This will save me $6000! I am beyond excited!
My back is steadily improving every day. Thank you all so much for your kind words of concern and encouragement. I so appreciate it.
