I AM NOW OFFICIALLY SET UP in my house!!!!
I put my last coat of stain on my beautiful $20 dining table from goodwill! it's either maple or oak (I cannot remember) Seriously, it is beautiful and I learned something new in the process. Anita you are amazing! Now, I just have to coat it with a sealant and the entertaining begins!
ROUNDTABLES :There is something about round tables. They are my favorite. note to self -from now on - roundtables in my home at all times. Something that draws you closer to one another face to face. This table can fit comfortably 8 people around it. So, cool! I only have 4 chairs tho' that is all I could afford. It really helps creates family and conversation. I love that!
oh...i love it...the current weather that is! We are having authentic vancouver weather for the past couple days. meaning ... rain, fog, mist, cool air. Sounds like either the setting for a romance novel or a suspense/horror. I prefer the romance. Everyone tells me that this is early for california - they usually get this "winter weather" around christmas for what a couple weeks. Nice long seasons they have here (sarcasm intended;) They usually only have HOT HOTTER and HOTTEST no wonder if you are one who is climatized down here this is known as cold, winter.
Hahaha ... come to winnipeg honey! The last couple days I was walking around the park with a tshirt no jacket and people here are all bundled up. it is quite funny to watch and most people are probably laughing at me on this one. Let's see as the adjustments settle and the elusive climatizing happens whether or not I too will become thin skinned.
Saying all that - I love these types of days cause it makes me want to snuggle up in front of a fireplace. well, no fireplace here. so sad. But, drink a nice steamy cup of eggnog latte' I now can do-that's right- it is in the stores baby! ANNOUNCEMENT - I saw it yesterday!!! Eggnog that is;) When it will hit starbucks -who knows....katie?? tanya?? [Commercial break]
Anyway, snuggle up, read a good book ...speaking of -check out the corresponding list on the right margin of this page. These are just a few personal favorite books. There are always many more to be added, perhaps in a couple months I will change the list and bring in some new books. tonight Tams and I went to the Black Cow in Montrose. Not to far from where we live. Ok -this is a cute little restaurant. Another hot spot for my visitors to come:)
