The tiny creek that
drains our land is frozen, its
voice stilled: it, too, rests.
Okay, it’s a culvert, not a creek. But it’s still frozen. Winter is here!
House stuff has moved to a crawl; there’s a lot we really can’t do in the winter. We installed a closet rod & shelf in the closet – making the built-in cabinet will wait till spring, when we can stain & poly without killing ourselves. Soon, I think, we’ll have the window finished, and then we can sleep in a bedroom!!
We bought granite tile to go under the wood-burning stove, and when that arrives (around the 7th), we can make a hearth board, then have a chimney person come and install the stove, and then we will have firefirefire.
Christmas was wonderful, hanging out with my folks & the dog on Xmas eve, cocoa with capriox, then Holmes with T. on Christmas Day (we skipped going out to Chinese and had pizza the day before instead). New year’s was quiet – mostly knitting. I’ve been knitting a lot.
ysabetwordsmith wrote this lovely poem to my prompt in yesterday’s fishbowl.
anke‘s free small art is still open! Go prompt! She’s specifically asked for non-tipping prompts as well as tipping, so don’t be shy!
Rix_scaedu has posted the roundup from her call for prompts. If you haven’t read them, well, read them!!

Thank you for the mention. Someone I worked with was renovating her house, moved the woodburning heater and discovered that the DYI Person whose handprints were all over the house had installed it directly onto the floorboards without any insulation…The boards under it had charred.
Ack! Yes, that is what we are trying to avoid!! (Thing I want art/icon of #2 for the day: Fire. I need a list)
I appreciate the signal boost.
