There's only a few hours left in 2009.... Bill and I are spending a quiet night just the two of us or rather just the four of us. As I am beginning to prepare dinner for us, the brothers are both napping. Jackson is beside Bill on the sofa and Jake is in my favorite wing chair. They are pooped! They played hard this afternoon.
As I am thawing shrimp for dinner, I have a few minutes to ponder about the new year....Did y'all remember that we are starting a new decade?? Today, I played catch up on reading some of my favorite blogs....I have read some wonderful thoughts about resolutions and expectations for the new year. There's so much that we all can look forward to. Hopefully, we can all look back in a few months and be pleased that we are fulfilling our plans and dreams for 2010.
I also want to share one of my favorite gifts for Christmas this year, (not counting the kittys). I think Bill did a fabulous job of choosing something for me. I never really gave him a list or anything, but I had commented that I really liked the idea of this bench. I had one years ago when we lived in Chicago, but when we moved to Greensboro in 1991, I sold most of my beloved handmade prims. Our house just wasn't suited for them. It was a 3 story Traditional Colonial that was way too prissy! So, I parted with a lot my special pieces. One that I always have regretted was a bench similiar to this. It was made from old barnwood as well, but not painted like this one.
Don't you love the way it is assembled? No nails, no glue, no tools, just four wood wedges! I think this is the coolest idea!
