I bought this print for Tomas’ birthday. Is it wrong that I love it so much & am so happy it will grace one of our walls?
This is our living-room. Well… at least it’s a paper representation of our living-room with possible paper furniture (yes, those are all Ikea names). Sometimes we do this with a room when we’ve grown tired of the layout & everything gets shifted around.
Right now we have a large L-shaped couch that takes up about two thirds of the room and forces TV watching, and discourages conversation or real together time. We’re hoping to figure out an affordable solution without crowding everything up too much.
We’ve got a nice big storm that’s dumping some good sledding snow for us. As we waited for the blizzard today we got ready with cookies, and apple cider, and we set up our creche in the most inconvenient spot ever — right in front of a drawer that gets’ opened a zillion times a day. Today has been perfect for having good friends over and lazing about after (finally) putting up our tree.
It’s been a great day, and I’m hoping yours was, too.
Now that the weather has turned too cold & blustery to grow things in the garden, we’ve moved our efforts indoors. A couple weeks ago I bought a dozen paperwhite bulbs and had the kids help me plant them all in various sized bowls and two re-purposed clay yogurt containers. (more…)
Sometimes you need to hear a complete stranger state the obvious.
