During these cold (unpredictable due to the fact that we are killing the planet) months, if the gray starts gettin ya down, you must think on sunnier things- like cantalope and flowers and nectarines. A little Stevie Wonder is good if you need a quick fix. I also find it helpful to drown myself in little projects that will most likely never get finished, but each year I am feeling like the ant… you know, with the rubber tree plant 🙂 Besides, winter has it’s own wonder too.
I have X-mas presents galore to work on, I plan to come up with new concoctions of hopefully delicious things to eat. I’m also going back to school full time (crosses fingers). Yay.
Here’s the rocker that Jeff and I lugged all the way from Tennessee back home. All painted.
I think it’ll look better when he does the cushions for it. He’s a rockin fool. But I love that he’s happy, and for as much of a fight as I put up in Nashville, we really do find a way to never pay for ANYTHING. And I love all the stuff we have because we usually put a little bit of ourselves into it. This chair was a piece of crap and now it’s kinda pleasant.
So yay for before and afters. I have so many of them in my life, might as well celebrate em.
