Today In My House


I started a fire in my wood stove this morning. Because I can. Because I have lots of wood! You can see on my ottoman that I also have yarn out. I’m getting ready to do some crochet projects. The urge to crochet always comes on me in the late fall. I love to crochet in the cold months. It’s something fun to do inside by the fire. I’m getting ready for winter all around, which included making a shopping trip to stock up on my yarn stash!

Also in my house today is this naughty girl.
Chloe. Who is once again driving me crazy as I attempt to once again get her contained. She was contained yesterday, but was right back on the back porch when I got up this morning. She will run off when she sees my hired men coming–she knows they’ll be here to try Plan #825,619 to contain her. So she’s confined to the house until they arrive!

    Hmmmm….wish I had a fireplace to enjoy.

    We haven’t had a fire yet, and I’m a little nervous since we haven’t had the chimney cleaned! It’s been warmish here in PNW with highs in the 60s. And that is really ok with me!

    Good luck with Chloe as I have a dog that we’ve never been able to keep in the fence and the only way to keep a lead on is to put two collars on.

    You need Chloe to complete the picture of a perfect fall evening, crackling fire, crocheting with your feet up on the ottoman and Chloe by your side.

    Do you still have Gwen in the house too? 🙂
