Windows are glistening with crystalline sun through window-ice; the last gasps of 2009 in reflection. I’m feeling a bit smug…the improvements done around here have transmitted into pure joy! and I am Deeply Thankful for the wild ride of a year, complete with a few new thermo pane replacement windows, a freshly leveled & flood resistant driveway, garden musing replacing stumps and ruts removed from the “front yard”, a woodshed built with salavaged material …. and Gregor here sharing some “down time”. We are (he is) hanging curtains, and expecting company for the weekend to share in all this cozyness. Two of his three little boys, Mathew and Andrew will return for more fort building, and dinner for the last night of this year will be seasoned with love, champagne, and apple juice.
Cheers to sharing an inspiring year ahead ! and thanks to you all for visiting, sharing work and friendship.
