Thankful


Christmas Eve Day is here and we are finally settled into our new home. Most boxes are unpacked and I can say that UN- packing is a whole lot more fun than packing. There's a feeling of accomplishment when you can break down the box FOR THE LAST TIME and throw it into the recycling bin at the dump, oops, transfer station.

I've got a ktichen with a workspace that flows, and counters that are half done, but I guess with concrete it takes a month to cure after its made. Butcher block on the island. In the distance is the mosaic I posted part of earlier. It was a colossal error in measuring (ditzy kitchen planner lady) and because of that it has overflowed it's original boundaries. It's still pretty though.

I have a pantry. And lots of room for the dozens of vases I can't seem to be able to part with.

We even have a tree and little lights in the windows.

We will have a white Christmas after all. This field behind our house is now covered with snow and we have a houseful of family: kids, grandkids and dogs (4). Family traditions. I am hoping the same is in store for all of you reading this post, well, maybe not the 4 dogs! Peace to all.

FOUR dogs who don't normally live together...EEEEK! What a wonderful visit! Looks like the butcher block is in, and maybe the kitchen counter too! The mosaic is just GORGEOUS! Hugs, Sarah
