We've been trying to settle in to our new digs, and find things we need. We have had three snow storms in the week we've been here, and unlike what people said to us, it does not melt in a day.
Not yet, I suppose there may come a time when it does that.
I did a special I Like post on Christmas Eve, and if you missed it, look here: ( special-i-like-post)
I do not like everything about this place right now. I will not go into all that but I will continue to seek the things I do like, and share them here.
I like the wide deep carpeted stairs in the rental. Milo can easily use them, which is a godsend. I also like the metal posts.
He likes to perch on this landing to keep an eye on both of us, one upstairs, one downstairs.
I like the tall ceilings here, and the general layout of the house. This is something I didn't realize I would like and wouldn't have known before living here. I don't know if learning that is worth the nearly $3000 a month we're paying to rent but it's still good to know.
Look what was in the mail today!!! A surprise from my friend Jeanette in MN!
Just what the doctor ordered!!!!
I like the Christmas gifts my friend Mary in Boulder gave me
|the cows are on a washcloth, and the clothespins have sewing words|
, even though this year was too chaotic for me to think about shopping for gifts. She just freely celebrated our friendship and gave me lovely sewing items and they were gratefully appreciated! Can't wait to do something artistic again. She also invited us for Christmas day dinner so that we were not so lonely sitting here amid boxes.
|that's a dog, not a pig with that silly pink nose!! What were they thinking?|
I like Snowbabies stautes, and we try to get one each year at Christmas. This year we found one at the after Christmas sale (half price) to match the year's event. It's called Travel Buddies
|look how they wrapped it in a tissue dress pattern!!! So cute!|
|mighty little people!|
|I'm walking around unlaced for now|
When we took over this rental from DH's coworker, we had to move to digital cable service for the TV. I now have to learn how to use the blankety blank xfinity with it's hundreds of repeat channels, it's high numbers to remember, it's vast bank of sports and Spanish channels I do not want nor need.
Still, I Like cable tv
I am trying to figure out how to use the DVR. By trial and error I was able to replay the Survivor episode I recorded and I liked being able to see that. I have always loved Survivor and especially this season.
Amazing Race is soon to start... yea! We both love that show, and DH wishes he could race in it.
Milo has some likes this week. While he does not like being left in this strange house while we go shopping, he did enjoy a gift from his faraway friend Phenny (short for Phoenix) in France.
By enjoy, I mean he destroyed it in more than one sitting. He also aged into Whimsey's so he enjoyed one all over Mary's rug on Christmas day!
Please enjoy the video of his quiet destruction here....
Please visit these fine folks keeping it positive and as always, if you want to join our merry clan, let me know you wrote a post and I'll add you in!
