We’re a mess of boxes and dirty laundry over here, but the move is over. We had a rick of wood delivered today, and friends came to help us drag boxes to one side of the room (under that window, see?) so that at least the cozy space around the family room fire looks habitable, and we are enjoying it! We bought one of the last live Christmas trees available at our local lot, and though it’s a bit sad looking and uneven Dorothy loves it. She was so eager to put on ornaments that she started decorating the tree at once–before we put on lights. Skipping lights at least means there is one less thing to put away after Christmas! The empty table on the other side of the fireplace is my sewing table. I am so excited about the happy hours I will spend under that beautiful picture window (which will be replaced with one I can slide open when our new window order is installed in 4-6 weeks), and Dorothy’s wee desk next to mine will (she hopes) get a little starter sewing machine on it after Santa arrives on Saturday.
Hope everyone else is feeling like they are occupying the right space this Christmas. 🙂
