is it really already monday again? i ought to try to write more frequently, not because you dear readers are anxiously awaiting posts about nothing, which is mostly what i write, but because it's hard to remember how and what we did all week. and i like to remember. even the nothings, sometimes especially the nothings. this first photo is what i've been looking at a lot, every chance i get. it's the view from my new room, one of the empty rooms i got when my kids left home.
here is one part of my new room, the organized part. you really don't want to see the messy part. i have been having so much fun gathering all the crafty creating things that were previously scattered throughout the house. now i get to keep them all in one place! my sewing machine, fabrics, yarn, needles, books, oh so many treasures. i am getting so inspired, this may turn into a craft blog. i love the light in this room, and i love the view.
it changes all the time, clouds come and go, fog too...
i've finished a couple projects for christmas, although i can't show them here, just in case. i never know if some people (my kids) are reading this. as soon as something comes off the needles, something else goes on , here is a new scarf i started this weekend, i've done half, about 30 inches so far. it's a simple lace pattern called "road not taken" from the book "a fine fleece".
we celebrated two birthdays on saturday. both my husband and grandson share the same day. travis turned nine (i can't believe i have a nine year old grandson) and my husband turned, well, he was 36 when trav was born. just in case i'm not supposed to say his age here. :)
they are two peas in a pod, these two. here they are a few years ago. travis requested blueberry pancakes for breakfast and my husband chocolate cake (not for breakfast silly). then we went out for lobster for dinner. and then ate the chocolate cake i baked. i am glad they had a good day. and i was really glad for lobster. happy birthday darlings.
still in my room, and now it's raining. after the birthday celebrating we quickly switched into christmas mode, the tree was collected in between rainstorms and it was time to decorate.
sadie bella decorating the tree. i love how kids put fourteen ornaments on one branch. :)
and some more of my room, that is the window that has the mountain view. and this is the loveseat i never want to get off of. it's hard to get a good photo, i should have waited for the morning. ah well. there are some things i need still, like a work table, a chair, a new sewing table since mine is really not a sewing table and it wobbles when i work. but i am really happy, i've waited a long time for my own space. and i really really love it.
i hope your finding magic in the season where ever you are.
