Where Have I been....

Well here you go.....
Winter in Maine in a 100 year old house with 100 year old windows....can mean lots of oil....at 3-4 dollars a gallon or it can mean lots of wood...sweat...and pains....
So can you see me in the wood pile? No....well your right....I'm on the other end of the camera....and I am a pro at avoiding this wood pile but I must get out there this morning as Jack and the kids are coming home this weekend and we'll need to be able to park cars some where this weekend...so I'll be off to the wood pile soon and then to clean the studio so the kids will have a place to sleep....



It sure has been nice having the wood stove going there is nothing like wood heat ask anyone that has one and they'll tell you it is a warmer heat.....then I have been quilting too....

On a side note How long does it take a USPS priority package to travel from Central Maine to Jackson Hole Wyoming and back? The answer for this box....3 months 18 days!
It was just delivered back to the house....I mailed it on June5th and it was returned on September 23rd! Do you suppose the print is still on the book, the Peanut M&M's and Twizzlers OK? The socks still new and what about the shirts....the Timex still ticking? Thank goodness I wrapped it all in a garbage bag before I shipped it. I have opened it and all seems to be fine....I'm a bit confused....why would a box that should have been delivered in 2 days take 3 months and 18 days to make a return trip? LOL Why do I ask why? Silly me....Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday and if your in the neighborhood feel free to stop by and say Hi I could use an excuse to not be in the wood pile today!
