Hello cozy ones! I've been looking at all things cabin this morning. I like to keep my imaginary house in the woods in good standing, tweaking it now and then, keeping it warm.
Do we really need a lot of space when we are having tea with our woodland neighbors? No. As long as we're cozy in the woods, we won't be entertaining crowds.
Chances are the exterior might look like this. Come on up the stairs.
I'll stand at the sink and fill the kettle.
And if it snows, you'll have to stay. I'll make soup.
I may have to get up occasionally and stir.
I will never have a cabin because having two homes would tug at my heart way too much. Our house is our cabin. As is. I feel a very solid contentment here. Whew.
Millie Rose was sick with a virus and had to stay in the hospital for two days. Oh, we're so thankful that she is home now. She's getting so many kisses and nuzzles. We love her so.
Samantha Rose (we like roses) will turn two tomorrow (on Thanksgiving Day!) and she'll see a play kitchen when she comes down the stairs. Kids like their kitchens!
Saturday night they were all here. Aria and Cadence were under the weather, too. Cadence is lounging on Granny's sofa and Finn is climbing up!
April has been knitting dolls! This is her fifth or sixth doll! Isn't she cute? Sam's a happy doll mommy.
Bill met a friend at the pie store last night, so he brought home two pies (so sweet). I may or may not bake pie. I will eat pie, though. If I do dabble in pastry today, I'll take pictures. I am cooking the feast. Kelli needs a rest from stress and worry. I have prepared the feast many times and now the smells will fill our house this year, too. Hooray!
But first, a little knitting and sitting.
I asked my students a few Thanksgiving trivia questions. They could not produce a pilgrim name. No one could recall Plymouth Rock. They obviously called out, "The Mayflower!" They did not mention Chief Massasoit. They DID know the full traditional menu for Thanksgiving dinner. They knew the football teams and games that will be televised on Thursday.
I think I'll draw some pilgrims today.
Oh, thank you for reading my zig zag rambles and do you know what? I'm very thankful for you. Whether you share your life on your own blog or you simply care enough to peek in on me, it is a BLESSING when people care. Thank you.
I wish you a heart of contentment and if you are feeling pain, I wish you a downy blanket of comfort.
(a big hug, some gentle pats on your back and a noisy smooch on your dear cheek) SMILE!
