Bit by Bit

I jazzed up the basement. We were supposed to finish the bathroom and hang doors last weekend, but instead Darling finished the electric in my workroom. In typical fashion, he ran into issues, so it's not technically done yet, but we're closer. And, instead of doing something more useful, I painted frames, hung kids' art, and organized and purged my sewing patterns. Not on "the list" but pretty darn rewarding. Check out Etta's self portrait. 

One pattern drawer after... And one before... And (not pictured) and entire grocery bag full of purged patterns! See? Bit by bit...

Our tree

Our annual trip down the lane to choose, cut, and haul our tree took place yesterday. We thought it was best to get to it first thing, but at -2 degrees, we decided to wait until after breakfast at least. I think it ended up a balmy 7 degrees when we bundled up and trudged out. 

We ended up with the biggest tree we've cut yet! Doesn't quite fit in the living room (trying a new tree spot again this year), but it is definitely the focal point. Wahoo!

Cat Cowl


I've been absent. But I'll try to be better. Stay warm!
