Two // the newly bloomed amaryllis by lamplight
Three // how to clean a wool rug (the snow must be just right: thick dry powder, freshly fallen)
the dog gets the same treatment.
Four // Tiger, and the clean rug drying in the sun
Five // working on the plumbing in -10° f
Six // table still life - the blow drier is our lifeline when something needs to be thawed out.
Seven // practice, practice, practice. Also, sis made her blouse and vest.
Eight // oh yes, oh yes, it's the big february swing dance! Best ever.
Last week was long and cold and exhausting, to be frank. The temperatures dropped to 20 below and colder with the whipping wind, the pipes froze, and when we finally got them running again, the drains were ice too. Five days of battling the plumbing made us that much more thankful for the beautiful sight of hot water disappearing down the tub drain at last.
Thankful for good friends with helping hands. Thankful for the weekend, which brought fabulous dancing and a sleepover with Tasha afterword to discuss all the details. Imperative.
