Are things slower?
*[see note about washing machine below] kitchen, mud room, office, with a pantry and lots of windows. I hope that we can work it out because I think it will be nice.
As pictured on my sister's blog, bijounotes.blogspot.com, we live under the flyway of the Sandhill Cranes who fly over on their way from Nebraska to Florida. I have been to Nebraska in the winter and all I can say is "GO Cranes! No sense is freezing your tail feathers." The cranes make the most interesting sound, rather warbling, almost cooing. For several days they were overhead and then they were gone. I look forward to it every year and go out to see them whenever I can. I didn't get any pictures but I did check on google and found a recording of their sound at "Sandhill Cranes Good Sounds " on YouTube.
We are still working on getting the remaining part of the basement ceiling down and the mess cleaned up, the mantel piece finished and, oh my, the washing machine.* Dean called today and they said that the part had to be manufactured and that it might be here by Christmas. I nearly cried. I think that I might just go buy another machine. EEEEEK!!
