We love snow and conveniently, it arrived Friday night AFTER the big move from one apartment to another for my Mom. It looks pretty good and I managed to comfortably fit everything in with the exception of five pieces, mostly small end tables. What I did love and she didn't want was the table I bought her for the old apartment. Sigh, I don't think she ever used it and now, she has tray service in residential living and will likely eat at her recliner. To that end we are getting her a swinging tray table much like they use in hospitals and over beds. Simple, and useful.
I finagled around and finally decided I wanted that sweet table where it will be used. A few pieces of furniture moved about or relegated elsewhere and this is what we now have!
What do you think? I know it's kind of odd to have a table in a master but really, so convenient. I can drink coffee, work on small projects, spin and if I put a pillow on one of the chairs it makes it high enough to weave on. I still have the chest if I feel like dragging it over to the looms instead. Gene put felt pads on it so easy peasy to do.
Every year I treat myself to a special holiday book. This year two vied for that honor. I couldn't make up my mind so dang, I bought both.
That Mr. Finch is a marvel and so inspirational.
The stories and facts in The Magpie and the Wardrobe are whimsical, fun and interesting. Both books are made for browsing.
Speaking of books, The Throne of Glass series of 7 books by Sarah Maas (YA fantasy and VERY good), are done. I mourn finishing them and may just have to re-listen to them again. To get over the book hangover I started in on a series of two books (so far) by Vivian Shaw. The first is "Strange Practice", where Greta is a doctor to the undead and such in modern day London. Mummies, banshees, ghouls etc. It was probably the most innovative mystery series start I've read in a very long time. There is a second book, "Dreadful Company" and that too was consumed and enjoyed. A third on its way. So my Audible account is as active as everything else in my life!
A simple pair of pants has made it out of the salon, a wee bit of weaving, some holiday decorating slowly happening and the frenzy of wrapping and mailing of gifts about to descend upon us. I won't make deadlines with most of my weaving for friends, but then again, I get the joy of surprising them with something as I do finish up. Works for me!
I'm leaving you with a favorite of mine to start the season. It's featured in my favorite holiday movie of all time, Love Actually.
Parting shot: Jack supervising the realm.
