This is where I want to be,


 
The recliner is the place for me.
 
One of my favorite books to read when my girls were little
was
Put Me In The Zoo
 

The critter says
"This is where I want to be,
the circus is the place for me!"
 
So,
 
"This is where I want to be,
the recliner
(in front of the fire, with a warm, steaming cup of coffee
and my yarn and crochet hook)
is the place for me!
 
Why?
 

 
This, of course!
 
How cold do these people look?

 
And doesn't this just scream
COLD?

 
Both views from my sewing room window as
I continued to
organize,
pitch
and
clean!
 
 
I have these real bad habits of
1. Buying any sewing basket I find at any sale at almost any price.
2. Stacking those in my sewing room and never going through them.
 
Today, I will continue to tackle that issue.
 
The goal of today?
(Other than staying warm, of course)
 
is to clean out my old sewing room enough that I can get the bed set up in there. 
 
 

 
Another view of the alcove.
The other night as I was quietly sitting crocheting
and
thinking.
 
Watching television would be an option,
but JWS controls the remote and therefore
the television choices are not ...well ...interesting.
 
I thought of this picture that was hanging in another part of the house.
 
If you remember this post.
 
 
I jumped up, ran to snatch it off the wall,
back to my new sewing room
and
hung it immediately.
 
JWS thinks I am crazy.
 
 
And lastly, this morning,
I am going to say how thankful I am that
I don't have to go out in this weather.
 
JWS
is
amazing.
 
He takes care of all this stuff for me
and while he is the butt of a lot of my blog posts
for humor.
 
I truly appreciate all that he does so that I can stay comfortable!!!
 
Stay warm, everyone!
 
Twenty six hours and counting until this is over!!!

I'm with you for the recliner and a cup of hot coffee, that's were I'm at right now. My agenda for the day though is to get some more sewing done that I've been behind on. I do need to get to my craft room though, the cats basically own it right now!

Wow! That's super cold. It was down in the single digits here which is very unusual for us. The windchills were below zero! Sounds like a cozy spot you have there!

It is probably a good possibility that the amish have a heater inside the buggy.
