I am definitely keeping my eye out on Craigslist for bar stools. We hope to have a big, freezer on the bottom, ice maker in the door refrigerator in the Spring! Here are some more pieces of home...
Abby's room, but without curtains, trim, or new bedding yet. It is still a pink, dreamy sanctuary.
The big "G"'s room. He will have globes, an atlas, and trim eventually too.
We had a Christmas tree issue. We bought a real one, and in all of the hustle and bustle, (a Christmas term?), we forgot to water it. It croaked. It was depressing my Christmas, so I pulled it out of the house; the stand, a little bit of water in there, and needles everywhere, and all and tossed it into the yard. Classy, but I couldn't take it anymore. So after about 2 days without a tree, I picked up this little guy, and he is making a great little understudy since the lead actor died. I have a plan to set it on a table, but in the meantime this will do.
I try to keep this table cleared, but it is just not possible. In a way, the way it looks at the end of the day reflects the kind of day we have had. Thinking about it that way makes clearing it a little easier, or leaving it a little easier which is what I do more often that not. You have to cook to need a dining table to eat at. Maybe next week!
