The reason I can't vacuum in the "Prairie Room"... (two cats sleeping--Queen is behind the couch on the left side of the picture in front of the window, and Gracie is on top of the hutch).
I can't fold the laundry because Bogie decided it would be a great place to take his afternoon nap! I guess I'd better find SOMETHING I could accomplish.... maybe there's some fabric in the cupboard that needs attention (a NEW project??).
Sunday morning... on time for church (but not TOO early!!). It was snowing at our house, but hadn't really begun to stick to our grass or gravel road yet, but in town, it was beginning to get pretty white!
After I came out of our little "Stanhope Parish" church service, I had to scrape snow off the van!
Driving around the corner from church an hour after the top picture!! We ended up with just over an inch of dry, sparkling snow.
This is the snowman runner I had cut out in October, but didn't get started sewing on until December. Now for the buttons.... the finishing procedures always surprise me when they take longer than putting together the quilt!
We don't have a basement we use for storage (you have to walk outside and back inside to walk down there to the dirt floor and furnace and hot water heater, etc...and possible unwanted critters--like mice, etc...ick!), so we use this room for EVERYTHING! John spent the day yesterday cleaning it so we could get in there (again....).
Oliver waiting for Izaac to play with him again. Izaac had jumped onto the loveseat between me and our Uncle Charlie. Izaac was VERY entertaining for Oliver, but tired Oliver out!
A boy and a dog? You can almost see a smile on Oliver's face when he's on his back and getting his belly rubbed (no matter who cooperates with this pleasure!).
Oliver LOVES to run from the family (Prairie) room down the hallway through the kitchen to the living room (and back, most of the time). Sometimes he even plays 'fetch' (but it's not a requirement when he's in the mood to run!).
