My camera is giving me lots of trouble so within the next few weeks I will be getting a new one.    I have been advised to get a Cannon and will look at them soon.



When I moved into this house the walls in the dining room were wallpapered  in a metallic paper.  It was horrid.  I took it all down and eventually painted the walls a cranberry color with cream trim, but I never painted one wall.  They had taken out the beautiful old windows and put in windows that couldn’t be opened, and the window facing the barn had been made 3 feet shorter.  Much work would be needed to restore that window to it original size.  Every year I would think about painting the wall but then what a waste of time if  the window could be done.  Well every year there seemed to be more important things that needed attention.  So when Ricky came last week I finally had him paint the wall.  It makes the room complete.  Thanks Ricky you did a wonderful job.



I cut off these socks today and will knit new heels.  They are from Ireland and are very comfortable.  I couldn’t save as much yarn as I wanted.  They were very tightly machine knit socks.  But I have a color that is similar so they will be fine.  


Sam is just a happy boy these days.


We didn’t have much snow today and the temps will be in the 30’s for the rest of the week.  Spring is coming.

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.

A lovely window into country life in America. Thanks Carole. That’s my tea finished and now I’m inspired by you to get back to real time!
