Hello! Remember a long time ago (some of you, I know) when I wrote a post about little houses? I still love looking at the pictures of tiny houses and I get so romanced by rooms and coziness. Paint me a picture of a warm and happy house or a room glowing with fire light, and I'm a happy camper! Are you?
It snowed! Bill's been out battling the snow on our driveway. Grrrrrr. It's a river of snow and ice! The trees are sure looking pretty, don't you think?
To be honest, I have not been wearing my cow grandma boots as much as I thought I would. I feel so clompy in them. I put them on so I could go out and take snow pictures. Hmmm. I'll make myself wear them a bit more. Clomp. Clomp.
Yesterday I had a blissful hour or two with scraps and pens and my journal. Stickers, too. I don't do this ALL THE TIME, but when I do craft up my journal, I enjoy it very much.
I'm not a football fan so we are not watching the Super Bowl. We are going to eat bean soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I've been reading The Book of Stillmeadow, My Antonia, and The Art of Living (an old Reader's Digest story book) and I am enjoying voices of old, telling good, good, good tales. I have always liked old things, old stories, old pictures, old fabric. I like old people, too. I like getting old. Today I considered buying a "hot flash fan" at the Hallmark store. I really need one.
Over at Much Ado About Something, I read about Hannah Hauxwell. I had never heard of her before. If you want to see something amazing go to Sara's blog and read about her (click on the video, too) and prepare to feel fascinated. I watched the video a few times and I might watch it again. Oh, how I wish I could pop over to the UK and watch Lark Rise tonight. Sigh.
Well, I am thankful for books, for a sweet husband, for darling daughters and heroic sons, for granddaughters and a peppy little grandson, for friends who are so cheery, for parents and siblings that love me, for a warm green and white house, and for a quiet Sunday evening. Oh, and you know I am thankful for YOU. You are so kind to come over here and check on me.
