Recently....


You might have been able to find me:

Purchasing vintage ice skates.........


Because there's this pin I want to recreate.

Which also requires a sled.

*   *   *   *

Decorating for Christmas........


Only a little though.  The tree doesn't even have ornaments yet.

Swear.

*   *   *   *

Getting a free sled......


From my mother-in-law!

The mister slid down hills on this baby when he was a youngster.

#sentimental

*   *   *   *

Shooing Gizmo from the laundry room.....


So naughty.

But that face.

*   *   *   *

Surprised by the contents of this desk.........


Week old grapes.

"Being saved for a snack."

More like......fermenting.

Only one blue folder didn't make it out alive.

And then everybody cleaned out their desks.
