Yesterday was the first snow of the winter season here in our corner of Connecticut. Although only a couple of inches fell, it was my favorite sort of snow — the kind with big, juicy flakes that stick to everything. As I sat at my desk gazing out the window, I realized that I'd never seen our new house in the snow. So I put on my warmest boots and headed out to take a pic.
In the snow, our cottage was even sweeter than I expected. Classic Currier & Ives!
The reno project is progressing nicely here, but going a bit slower than I hoped due to waiting on building inspections to happen and kitchen cabinets to arrive. So our living room is doing triple duty, acting as our comfy TV-watching space, my studio, and even our kitchen. The most bothersome aspect of this arrangement is when we have to trek across to the other side of the house to wash dishes in a small powder room sink. It is sure to be even cozier when Jacob arrives home from London this weekend. Hopefully in another month or so, our new kitchen, family room and studio will be complete. I can't wait to finally unpack everything, spread out, and have space to entertain family and friends.
No more snow for today, but it is supposed to be quite chilly. I just may light a fire in the living room's large stone fireplace right across from my desk. Later, I plan to sort through my photos from our recent trip to Europe. I promise to share some favorites with you next time.
