What a nice day today.  For one thing, it started out sunny with the light streaming in…

…and a few fun things were on the schedule…home things…

Back in 2012 at this time, I was getting ready for ankle surgery and being off my feet for three months.  R put lights on the trees outside the bedroom window

and the effect was brilliant, especially at night…

… we knew the trees were too close to the foundation and would have to come out…a summer project.  BUT…we wanted lights this year and hatched a plan to buy a light “net” and secure it within the window frame with cup hooks (nothing must encroach on the historic fenestration of course) …  We weren’t too sure really…thought it might look too grid-like…but up he went…

And then Earl arrived to install the new gas fire…

which suits the house…it’s little and looks like a coal fire…


Getting ready for holidays, winter, coziness.  Too much fun.  Hot Toddy?
