The hardest time I have with this layout is that I forget to unplug the lights every night. Sometimes Mr. Joe will remember to unplug the lights after he takes Mazey out for her last trip to the powder room.
Last night, the fragrance in the air was "eau de skunk" when Mazey was outside. We had issues in the Spring with skunks, so we put out moth balls which the skunks do not like. It's time to put them out again. Mazey was sprayed once, and we will all never forget that experience! I didn't plant a kiss on her little furry head or snuggle with her for weeks.
Some of you may remember a previous post where I showed holes either from a mouse or a squirrel on one of my quilts hanging on the headboard. I haven't had anything else chew any of my quilts for a few months. Hopefully the little critters will leave this quilt alone. The quilt is so old I don't remember the book I made it from or the name of the quilt.
I remember the chairs when I was growing up in Paradise, so that makes them 70 or 80 years old. Mr. Joe repainted them a few years back. They really are quite comfortable, and we enjoy sitting on the porch during nice weather. It's a bit too chilly right now, so the lighted presents take our place.
Quilts add such a homey feeling to a home. I can't imagine what the cabin would look like without quilts on display. I've always said that quilts add an extra layer of insulation to the cabin. In looking at the 10-day forecast I see snow in our future next week. Then, and only then, it will begin to look a lot like Christmas.
