I just found out that son-in-law Pete has a shop on http://www.etsy.com/ It is called Woodhouse Pipes. See the cool pipe below that he carved.
I really like the elements in this picture - knitting, macaroons and Orly Kiely printed fabric. Yeah! Via www.sfgirlbybay.com
Amber and I went to IKEA yesterday and I bought two more pieces of Expedit bookcases. I got two by twos but I still need a one by five tower but they were out of stock. Grrrr. I bought a couple of Christmas presents too. We also went to a Home Goods store. It is owned by TJ Maxx and is full of great stuff for the house at really good prices. More presents were purchased.
I picked Arnie up from the kennel after school today. He went to kitty camp while I was gone for Thanksgiving. He's been kind of lonely since Veronica passed away. He looks around the house for her. I will get him a new friend from the pound soon.
