I'm off on a mini vacation tomorrow! It's masquerading as a house sitting job - but I know better. This little break from the Battle to keep the Green Tarp Clear of Snow is most welcome;) We got another five inches today - I was out wrestling with the snow this morning with my trusty spring rake. Three hours later, and I was at it again, scraping and beating at another two inches! But all in all, things are still perfectly cozy once I step inside my warm canvas, out of sight of the blinding whiteness.
However, a little break is most welcome, and spending it in a real house has me really excited! I adore house sitting. No internet, but copious amounts of tea, and solitude - reading, sewing, and... movie watching;) I have a nice little pile of classic Hollywood in my bag - especially looking forward to seeing Laura (1944) and Christmas in Connecticut (1945), both for the first time. Have you seen them? What did you think?
And my friend's German Shepherds will keep me company. And bark at mean things. And I will look at the horses over the snowy hill through the window and feed them out in the whiteness.
And speaking of my bag, I just whipped up this tote about half an hour ago... I've been meaning to make it for ages, but the sudden need of something to put my articles in gave the extra initiative needed;)
It's enormous. Just what I wanted. And the thrifted vintage peony patch is really a perfect pocket for holding embroidery.
I think Mildred has taken a liking to it... :)
And... my sisters will have a grand time keeping my hearth fires burning... I have a feeling my tent will be one big dollhouse all weekend;)
Have a wonderful and cozy weekend - I'll be back soon!
