Just a quick note as Moby is sick and we are waiting for the vet to call back. Probably nothing more than too much to eat, but we need to take care of our baby.

These wonderful postcards appeared in our mailbox recently. They just make going to the mail so much fun.

OOPS! I forgot!
I forgot to show you the new side of the island so here it is. The blank space is for the dishwasher, which will be next to the sink in the center.

Postcard from Lynn 2-16-10

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your postcard was the 1st valentine I have received, I love all the lines and hearts. I didn't realize until I turned the card over that you had outlined a heart with pin pricks. I hope you don't mind my stealing such a great idea. Thank you for sending a beautiful postcard to me.

Postcard received from
Sheila of Tea and Toast

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It must be seridepity, your sending me a favorite poem, I haven't used in my art pieces yet. Your gate looks like my back gate, your card gives me an idea on how to plant my gate. Thank you for the postcard.

Postcard Received From Carlin 2-16-10


Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don't know how the knitted postcard made it so nicely through the mail, but it was a delight to receive. I appreciate all the hard work that went into the perfectly knit card. Thank you for sending it to me.

Arlington Wednesday Morning

Art is back from NYC, the sun is out, and only 2 more coats needed on the old part of the kitchen island. Yeah! Then we can call the countertop people.
Ihanna Postcard Swap 2010

Here are the postcards I sent out, I hope they are enjoyed.

Lordy, lordy, lordy, I can not believe how excited I get going to pick up the mail. Yesterday I got my first postcards from ihanna's postcard swap, which brought back the old excitement. I used to be this excited for magazines, etc. but lately all that has come are bills and a few catalogs. I know to some people this is just a little thing, but it is the simple things in life that make a good life for me.

Thank you Hanna for bringing the fun back into a daily activity.

Ihanna Postcard Swap 2010

Postcards are done. I'll post them after they are sent.
I had a bunch of fun playing with them and it feels good to complete something.
Yes, I'm still working on the Merry and Bright Christmas 2009 journal,
but am getting much closer to finishing it.

Welcome and baby

Yeah, He's home.
Art it was only 5 days but it seemed forever. We are so glad to have you home.

I had lunch with this sweetie and his mom and he has grown.

Here, he is discovering his foot, again, so cute.

I guess we finally put him to sleep. Babies are so wonderful.
