I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Was it restful, relaxing, filled with food and fun? I hope so. Did you shop on the Day After? Spend too much, find great bargains? Hope so for that also.
Can you believe it is only three weeks until Christmas Eve? Are you decorated, presents wrapped, relaxing by the fire with a cup of cocoa and your favorite people? Are you singing your favorite Christmas Carols to the percussion of jackhammers and shovels? No? Well, you are not enjoying the holidays in as creative a manner as the Lively family this blessed season.
More construction work begins tomorrow. It was supposed to begin today but permit snafus, a thousand phone calls and lots of prayers later, everything is legal with the city, the insurance adjustor is happy and we commence jackhammering my kitchen and dining room. I think trenches are lovely decorating choices. Something very abstract about them, don't you think?
Sorry, just have to instill a small bit of humor and/or sarcasm to lighten the festivities. Finishing up packing the sewing room. When it's all done, all but one room of my ground floor will have been demolished and put back together.
