Remember this? with all our modern windows, seeing Jack Frost is a thing of the past. Not for Richard, in his centuries old home. His windows on a cold day make me just want to sit there and stare, in awe, in transfixation, (no such word, but there should be). Seeing Jack Frost brings such a hit of nostalgia, which warms the soul on a cold day.
Three windows on Jen’s second floor have new Roman Blinds, after an effort I started last Tuesday until today…that’s why it costs so much to buy custom made ones…Frank and neighbour Kim were so helpful in the effort. It was satisfying to put them up today.Then Jen and I worked on stuffed dogs, to be what Forest’s friends receive at his 4th birthday party this week…a Dog Adoption Party.We made 12 dogs, 2 completed with stuffing by our departure. The colourful one on the left was made by Jen and I in N.Z. this time last year. He travelled over…Corduroy. This latest litter was less demanding in their birthing.
Jockel and Drea were over for the weekend. Jockel was so happy that there were waves out there…nothing like winter surfing, (apparently…not intending to find out for myself). Here he’s waxing his board, and the beaming Drea is watching. Did I tell you that Drea is also beaming because these two are having a baby the end of July??!!! We’re all so excited and delighted…and I won’t have to fly to get to the delivery. Yes!Jockel is back…ice clinging to him, but so pleased with his “run”.
This morning the air was so cold, and the ocean was not as, which caused the creation of “steam”. There is much to make up for the cold..really cold…days. Bright sun light looks brighter, clearer, on a crisp day, and the steam is wonderful to watch. It also feels alright to stay inside all day making Roman Blinds, just looking out now and then, when you know that it’s “too cold” to go out. Less guilt this way. Second day of blinds…only 2 more to go. I worked on curtains for Jen a few years back, in another country…funny. But there I was hot! But here, Jen is so much closer! as I said, cold isn’t so bad.
