Today’s task was mask making. The turkeys and gingerbread are for Chris, the spacemen for Keith and the orange leaf and acorn ones are for me. If you have to wear masks they should be FUN! I’ve got more to make but should be able to finish them up this week.
You may not know this about me but I’m a very practical person. So when we decided to buy our “retirement” home I had certain requirements it needed to meet. All our basic needs are on one main level …. bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, level entry … everything you might need if you had limited mobility. We also have lots of extra space on the terrace level for guests and my quilting. Since we’re in the mountains in a community with limited access, I didn’t want to live too far from one of the gates OR have to drive a scary windy road to get to the house. The house we bought met all my requirements but doesn’t have the amazing Mountain View’s that many of the ones higher up have. I told Keith that we’d have a small Mountain View from the porch during the winter and sure enough with the leaves falling, we can see it. It’s not a “WOW” view but the sun sets behind it and it’s nice! Can you see it? Find the sun … it’s getting ready to drop out of view.
We’re enjoying the cooler weather and I love being able to have the fire burning. If you remember this was a non vented fireplace but the odor really bothered me so we had a company come in and vent it and now it’s wonderful!
I’m enjoying the fire tonight along with a glass of this wine Keith found for me. How fun is this? I think I should keep the bottle!
