Projects Everywhere

We had a few days of warmth but now we are back to winter. Which is as it should be, for January. Today it is snowing on top of the icy icky that fell yesterday evening. This is perfect gather in time, time to be by the fire and cozy in the house.

But.

It is also a great time to move forward on projects, and they are scattered all over the house and workroom. It is both a disadvantage and an advantage to live so far out: a disadvantage in that we are not on the way to anywhere and few people venture out our way even in good weather. In wintry times, forget having visitors. The advantage is that we can spread our work out all over the place without worrying about anyone seeing the mess!

So here it was early this morning:

In the kitchen, a mirror and a picture get new paint. After finishing the mirror, I decided I didn't want to use it as I think the silvering is just too bad. So another mirror will be on the table later today.


Also in the kitchen the drawers to the dressing table that the mirror will go on, and painted picture frames--finished, thank goodness.


In the living room, ebay sales wait to go up to the mailbox,


and another drawer to the dressing table.


In the log room the dressing table awaits glazing and waxing,


a small trunk waits for paint and other work,

and a mirror and more picture frames need paint, backs, etc.


This doesn't include the projects Larry is working on out on the back porch and in the workroom. There is only room for one of us to work in the workroom since the dogs and cats are in there, staying warm in this bad weather. So my work has moved inside the house, for now.

I guess I know what I will be doing the rest of this snowy day.

Stay warm and safe, friends.

Sounds pleasantly industrious to have so many things on the go at the same time.

I had a lot of quality couch time, just sewing and reading. Our days are ok, but the nights are again below freezing. Not good southern weather.
