Something New

November 12, 2012

in Family & Friends, House & Home, Our Farm

The past couple of weeks have been filled with all kinds of new developments, improvements, and additions! Here they are, in no particular order:

DIY tutu skirt finished!

I now “make” dress-up! I made this tutu skirt for my girl. Tutorial coming soon!

I now make candy! Hard candy, specifically, which earned me cool mom points with my kids fer sure. Not that I’m after points or anything.

New candy mold!!!

Meet my new silicon candy mold – the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

The first snow!!

Snow! This is my in-laws’ farm.

New windows in the kitchen!!

I have new kitchen windows! Doing dishes is now officially my favorite activity!

And, if you know me at all, I bet you didn’t see this one coming:

I am now a DOG OWNER!

A new family member. Welcome, Olive!!

Meet Olive, the other reindeer, my new dog! This three-year-old spayed female belonged to dear friends until they moved to town and began to look for a new country home for their half-lab, half golden retriever companion. This is a bit of a plunge for me – I haven’t owned a dog since I was eight, when our sweet sixteen-year-old miniature pincher passed away. Back in the Old Country, we fed him on Soviet-factory hotdogs otherwise unsuitable for human consumption, but here in the capitalist paradise I’ve got plenty of cow bones and other good stuff.

Here’s to America, where everything is possible!
