It's the Sunday before Christmas, and I just realized that I hadn't done my post for MB4. That's how nuts it's been on my weekends since I started working again last June, and of course, with Christmas almost upon us, the job list has grown to ridiculous lengths.
I did get all the Christmas lights up this weekend, plus made a big soup, played endless games of Scrabble with my grandsons, and cleaned like a maniac. At least the kitchen and upstairs are sparkling now!
And oh, it's been cold. Oh so cold! But the wood stove has been doing its job and we're staying warm enough.
Last week when I worked at home because of a huge snow storm, the sun actually peeked out behind the clouds for a few minutes, and I took a few shots of our frosty windows. Yes, we have such old windows that most folks shudder when they see them. But since we heat with wood, it doesn't really matter. It's actually good that they're leaky - they let the house breathe. ;o) Or so I tell myself.
So here are a few photos I took that afternoon - some I've dolled up a little with color.
Merry Christmas and here's to a wonderful year of writing in 2011!
Merry Christmas, and remember to write like the wind!
