|Welcome to my life today. It looks beautiful but it's wicked cold. Here's what I saw when I went out to feed the birds this a.m. The shadows even look cold!|
Thought I'd begin the year by showing you what I've been doing to pass the time cooped up here on top of this hill in Greene County ...
|Well, one of the things we enjoy doing to pass the time is work on jigsaw puzzles. Here's one we finished recently. It was quite challenging. The one we're working on now looks like Santa's big bag of toys for all the good little girls and boys.|
|And of course ya gotta eat! Wendell is the best biscuit maker. The other night he made some to go with a stew I fixed for dinner and I thought these looked as pretty as a picture. I've been doing lots of comfort food meals these past few days.|
|I like to pretty much always be occupied with some needlework. Here's a pillow I just finished. It's a Maggie Bonanomi design, from one of her books, and done in mostly hand-dyed wools. Very simple and quick to make.|
|This makes me want to cry. This is the way I often get the main course done all year round -- Wendell cooks it on the grill. Don't think that's happening any time soon on this grill! Oh well ...|
|P.S. -- Wanted to post this pix of the way Wendell wrapped my Christmas gift this year; he says he saw this idea in Country Living?! He made the handle. What a guy! I didn't even know he LOOKED at "my" magazines. It must be love ...|
