I have been home and I have been a busy girl....
Have I ever told you how lucky I am?
I am the lucky bride of a hard working handsome boy.
My very own Mister. Yep. He is all mine. I am his.
My yin, his yang. We are opposite in many ways and alike in many others.
My mister likes to make things like I do. But he is far more talented than I.
You see I like to design and paint. He likes to craft and mold.
He is a carpenter.
A maker of houses and all that goes in them.
Here he is putting in the last of our new flooring.
He works so hard to make our home a strong one.
And it is, like him.....
Strong and solid. Comforting and warm. Practical and beautiful.
He has made every cabinet... every spindle.... All the floors.
He put in our tongue and groove ceiling.
Which he grooved himself.
Yep... he got his groove on.
See how lovely our living room is .....
He let me pick our new furniture.
YAY ME! (
It is all very comfy and has lots of stain-guard and an excellent warranty!
That we will very likely put to use.)
I still can't believe our living room is done.
We both put a lot of time into it.
I was also cleaning my office.....
Which needed some major organizing.
So I can become a working machine!!
My shelves were such a cluttered mess.
It was so hard to find anything.
But not now!!!
LOOK at these beauties...
Are they not lovely?
I never knew how being organized
could be such a beautiful thing!
And finally my sweet little brownies can have the limelight!
Well... They shared a little of there glory with there girlfriend Holga.
They didn't mind.
After all of our hard work I went and cuddled
on my new comforter.
It just whispers dreams full of color and singing birds.
But no sooner was I lulled to sleep then
came the preparation for Passover.
The company and the food...
Oh Yes, the food.
I made fresh unleavened bread
and prepared the rack of lamb.
I apologize to those of you who may be vegetarians.
But would like you to know,
that I LOVE lamb.
I also respect and honor the sacrifice
that was given to me to nourish my body.
I try to be ever mindful of all the blessing I have.
(And in this case it reminds me, even more,
of the highest sacrifice ever paid.)
It was a beautiful dish.... all prepared to be grilled...
Here is an excellent recipe for grilled rack of LAMB.
So there it is. A whirl wind!!!
Still much to do... and I will take you along for that also.
And don't worry... I am still working on my art!
I have been scribbling and cutting and hunting...
Hunting for what you may ask..
These adorable antique brass frames with convex glass.
I have been trying with all my might to find enough for my show in May.
If your little elves tell you secretly where they are all hidden,
will you kindly ask them to tell me also?
It is very much appreciated.
Really and truly.
