Do You Know What This Means?

And by this, I mean this picture:

This means that Noel is STILL not back from his job in Florida!  I've left the Christmas tree up and all his presents wrapped and waiting for him.  It looks like might be February before he gets back - we're still waiting to find out!  It's a good problem to have though, right?  Too much work instead of too little?

I've been busy too!  I just finished up my DDI certification last week (DDI is a world-wide training and development program).  It was an intense workshop with lots of rounds of feedback and practice, but it was great.  I learned a LOT. 

This weekend, after getting back from DDI (it was in Dallas) I got to work on January chores.  This includes: 

Yes, planting the spring garden!  Can you believe it?  The sugar snap peas were already there - they had managed to survive through the depth of "winter" here.  They look a little sparse, but they're still kicking!  Awesome. 

A few weeks ago, I went ahead and planted the seeds for the spring garden, and was shocked when they popped up WAY ahead of schedule and got really leggy.  So I had to go ahead and plant them, and just hope that there isn't going to be another frost!  What's in the garden now:

1.  Sugar snap peas (duh)
2.  Summer squash
3.  Okra
4.  Cucumbers
5.  Lavender

There will be some tomatoes at some point too.  I'm excited about the lavender.  It smells so nice!

And now, for your viewing pleasure, Kitty Cuteness!
