I missed a nice warmish Sunday in December when I could have been out on the roads with Buttercup! Grandpa is getting the girls a lovely bedroom set with "big girl beds" and I needed to get the room painted before it arrived. Here it is, nearly done in a shade Dawn would love:
Then my husband bought me a new chair for the computer desk for Christmas, which just arrived today. As soon as I unpacked it, Catherine started to remove the protective seat cover, and then decided its proper use was for giving Tiger merry-go-round rides. Doesn't poor Tiger look like he's ready to vomit?
I was just browsing today in some genealogy resources online, and found a huge treasure trove of information on my husband's side of the family, going way back to Morocco and 16th-century Spain. Fascinating! I emailed the gentleman who compiled it (apparently a very distant cousin of my father-in-law, although he didn't have those links complete in his family tree) and hopefully will hear back from him.
