And we can talk about the pie safe that finally made it 500 miles across the state and into my home. It was built by my great great grandfather. It was handed down to my great grandfather, then my grandfather, then my dad, and now to me. It is probably one of my two most important pieces of furniture.
Here's the inside of the door, the holes were punched from this back side.
The other piece of favorite furniture is my washstand, also made by one of the grandfathers that I never met.
I woke up to WHITE....snow and frozen fog. I feel like I'm in a snow globe. The forecast had said an inch maybe, but now we have maybe 6 or 7 inches and it's still falling. It's beautiful, but so white I need sunglasses.
Can't see a thing anyway.
he magnolia that I planted from seed...needs crutches to hold its limbs up.
Just another typical KY winter. Today never knows what tomorrow will bring.
Another from seed....my holly tree..
It's going to be below freezing the rest of the week, I might never dig my way out of here....I don't even have a snow shovel.
This must be the epitome of persistence....here is what I found this morning, growing on my brick arches.
There are buds on the River Birch, though. Spring can't be far behind.
Larry, dumb question, but is this the card I painted for your birthday or something?? I keep track of my paintings and I don't have a name with this one, but seems like it went to you. Not a very clear picture and the color is off, but my mind tells me that it came to your house. My mind isn't always right.
Yes, Sharon, I was the lucky recipient of that beautiful painting. It came with a very sweet note about kindnesses shown you. It currently resides on top of a small stack of paintings, prints, and photos I want to frame. Hopefully, that will happen when things slow down a bit after the holidays.
