Getting Through February

Finally got my dishwasher hooked up, and the new countertop installed.   I decided to keep my old stove, even though I had to push it to the edge of the doorway to make it work.  All this was because of the post in the corner.......the dishwasher wouldn't go over any further.
I just don't want to give up my old stove.
 

 I also don't want to give up my four prints over the stove.
I guess I want an old fashioned kitchen.


I've been slogging through the cold weather, pretty much like everyone else I know.

I weave on Möbius shawls, then mohair throws, then Fiesta rag rugs, and occasionally 16 harness dish towels.
Whatever keeps me engaged.


It has been brutally cold, but we have had sunny days.


The southern side of the house is bathed in sun on those days.



On other days, I've been "engaged" with sweet baby Dale.


She warms up any day, that one.



Also spending a little time with my other two girls.    We made  time for a little COLLAGE.



I'm shooting for  April 1st, counting the weeks off.
The way I look at it, only a fool would expect winter to still be around on April 1st.

That stove is fabulous. Glad you kept it. I see it occasionally pop up in your posts and I smile when I see it, every time. Along with your weaving of course.

Ooh, that stove reminds me of my Mom's kitchen! I love that you do crafts with your grands--it's the best time I have too when they visit. Stay warm...winter will be over soon, XOXO

Your stove shouts, KEEP ME. Wonderful memories using one just like it!

I think that awesome stove fits just fine right there. The winter sun warms the house...as do the grandkids! :)

I love an old fashioned kitchen. Yours is lovely. With all those sunbathed rooms, I keep thinking you're gonna love living there some day soon.
