Householding at the Beach…

We’re tidying up for New Year’s Eve, and to do my part (not even close…) I took on the dusting of the rooms I can get into in the wheelchair.  Wheelchair dusting, it turns out is kind of fun…a different vantage point and a way to appreciate things anew.

I started in the bedroom dusting the little white majolica plate I got in Tennessee this past spring…

  1. HNY! And thanks for the wonderful tour – wishing we were there by the fire with a nice cold glass of something from afar. Keep warm and laughing in the new year!

  2. Every image, every line a delight. Your perspective is wonderful, Bonnie, whatever your viewpoint. Thank you, thank you.
