I never realized exactly how much hammering and banging goes into replacing a roof until the new next door neighbor decided to have hers replaced. This morning. With an efficient crew of about 6.
Mittens is nodding yes and shaking her head no now. It’s too cute. Plus, Flopsy taught her how to give high 5, low 5, and fist bump. With her itty bitty fist.
Foggy and wet post-shower this morning and it’s the first day in ages that I feel energized. I really do thrive on “bad weather.”
The craft room has been in my sights for days. That sucker is getting cleaned up.
Every toy catalog that comes in the mail goes into recycling, do not pass GO, do not collect $200. The last thing I need is Moppet (and frankly, Pickles) drooling over brightly colored “educational” plastic toys, and following me around the house squealing, “ooooh, look at this!! Wait!! Look at THIS!!” Mercy.
Speaking of Christmas, it’s amazing how many houses in our neighborhood have tons of Christmas lights up pre-December. Some put them up before Halloween. 😬 Moppet begs on a daily basis for us to do likewise. It’s tempting, not only because it’s pretty, but because I’m tired of the pleading.
I would love to be quilting right now, but it’s wholly impractical. Too many other priorities. *sniffle*
Yesterday it struck me exactly how much I miss hanging clothes on the line. On a good, windy day with low humidity…
Tomorrow is the feast of St. Andrew. It’s the day our little Andrew died. He was born December 12 and buried the 15th. It was a difficult Christmas that year. May his memory be eternal!
How is everyone’s Christmas planning coming along? Are you the sort who focuses on food or decorations? If you’re crafty, how are your homemade gifts coming along?
Closing with a few additional photos of the church:
