Bright amazing sunshine is ours today. It is also extremely cold and the wind is relentless.
The forecast in the coming days is calling for snow, sleet and freezing rain, which stinks for a multitude of reasons including, I’m over winter and we still don’t have the new roof in place. The tarp is holding up so far…
We are passing our time here waiting for progress to be made on our home addition/renovation.
Last weekend, Father Cottage and friends came out and worked on pulling out part of the old built-in gutter, which must be removed before the new roof is installed.
The peacocks helped.
The metal is lifted up so they can remove rotten wood.
New wood is cut with the assistance of Coconut and Papaya
The electrician was out this week and installed the electrical boxes outside for the power to be connected to the house and a new breaker box was installed. The county inspector came out and inspected and approved this phase. Next week, weather permitting the power company will be out to move the existing power lines and hook up the new. The new lines will be underground.
I haven’t taken any photos of the new electrical boxes – although it is pretty exciting to us at this point to have something – anything done I wonder how exciting a picture of a metal box on the side of the house would be to y’all.
I’ve passed some time on personal projects lately including embroidery and stitching up scraps of vintage fabric.
This is an old calendar tea towel from 1960 something. I stamped some print on top of the calendar portion, then drew free hand flowers, which I am embroidering. I don’t have the slightest idea what I am going to turn this into when it is finished. I’ve been working on it off and on for over a year, totally making it up as I go. Maybe it is already finished and I don’t even know it yet.
A few of the scraps have been turned into necklaces.
Sometimes I just sit and stare at the ribbons, the old fabric scraps and before I know it time has passed and I haven’t accomplished the first thing.
Speaking of passing, Boo is curled up on the floor beside me passing gas, perhaps I should take him for a walk.
So, tell me – how are you passing time these days, any new projects or creative pursuits?
Have a good week, and happy valentine’s day to you.
