I'm back! Sorry for my absence. My computer decided to die last weekend, and we had to wait for a replacement. I haven't had much to share, to tell you the truth. I spent most of the week crashed on the couch, trying to control my cough. The weather has been very cold and dry, except when it's been slightly less cold and drizzly.
Isn't the snow in that picture lovely? That was last Saturday. We had this cold, icy snow hit late in the day, which caused us to postpone a trip to Oklahoma. The girls went outside to play. Big Sis wore her red riding hood...
I stayed inside, watching through the window, sipping hot tea and reading.
We packed up our Christmas, and exchanged the Advent calendar for an art gallery. We assembled Lego sets: Ghostbusters and a treehouse.
Little Sis has spent quality time with her vintage dolls, including Big Sis's new old Love Me Linda.
I was supposed to be blogging about our new dog this week. Alas, as we were heading out the door this Saturday, my mother called to tell us my stepdad had a stomach bug, and they were afraid we might catch it. Mr. B took his disappointed girls to Freddy's for lunch, then we came home and unpacked. There were tears. The girls haven't seen their Nanny in a while, and they've been itching to take a trip.
I decided to take advantage of the mess our Christmas stuff left behind, and undertook a massive bookshelf reorganization project. There was dust. Much dust. Much coughing, too.
If you were reading this blog a couple years ago, you may vaguely remember my birthday post, where I said Mr. B was building me a Little Free Library? A month later, our neighborhood saw an uptick in theft and burglary, and it no longer seemed like a great idea. Since then, several more libraries have sprung up around town. Big Sis and I loaded a box with extra books, including many old galleys from my bookselling days, and drove around to six or seven of these little libraries, adding books to their collections.
I'm still trying to whip our house back into shape. I feel guilty taking time out to blog, to tell the truth. I made a much bigger mess than I meant to, but it will be great when I'm done. My mother and brother are supposed to bring our pup this Friday. Big Sis and I made paper snowflakes, and we're going to hang some fairy lights around our dark family room, to help get us through the rest of winter. I hope everyone out there is well. Praying January isn't getting you down!
