We had some wonderful time with Sweet B. I took her and pepe to the hike my friend and I did the week before and they loved it.
She is growing like a weed!!
We gathered some acorns and bits, voila!!
We have acorn people!
She thought up the people, I ran the hot glue gun. She was thrilled, so was I.
We even made a little acorn dog! Her mom tried to do some with her and she said "It's ok Mom I can craft with Gramie you are good at other things." lol.
Then she wanted to try hooking.
the hooking you see is mine, I had her try it on the project I was working on.
For the first time with a hook in her hand I thought she did great!
As you can see I am almost done with Daisy. I am going to try and finish up the couple of stair risers I have left to make before I start my new big rug.
Taking B home on the other side of the mountains. It almost doesn't look real but that is Mt Washington, it was still getting snow this past week.
I read,but I go in spurts, I will read a lot and then I will not read for a couple of months. I love this author she is a lot like Agatha Christie.
At the end Inspector Gamache solves a case in a very tucked away resort. It sits in the woods on a beautiful lake and he says. "Is this place heaven or is this hell?" To Gamache it is heaven, but to his right hand man it is pure hell. He hated the bugs and how far out it was he couldn't wait to get back to the city.
So I started thinking about this house, our home.
When we first moved here the house was still in construction phase. I moved away from my family and friends. I didn't know a soul. I cried when I filled out the emergency form for my daughter's school I had no one other than us to ask to be a contact. I was lonely. Then the first thunder storm we had the house got hit! If someone had said here is $10.00 for the house, I would have packed my underwear and headed back to Maine.
But now all these years later it is pure heaven for me. When we go back to see family I am over whelmed with the traffic and the people. When Covid hit I was even more thankful than ever, this place truly hugged us and kept us safe. We have been asked several times lately if we are interested in selling . The real estate market is red hot here, No one has ever seen it like it is now. We are about 2 hours from the heart of Boston but worlds away in lifestyle and they all want it and I don't blame them.
Heaven and hell is all about prospective.
Have a wonderful week in your own personal heaven.
