It's been a long, busy week here in the land of renovations. I now have about three quarters of a floor in the studio and 48 feet of baseboard waiting to go in. Actually, one wall of baseboard is in due to the huge "Bookcase of Knowledge!" Yay! I've found the crown molding that will be going into the studio, but we haven't had time to go pick it up yet.

It is still chaos and bedlam throughout the house. There may be a mouse stirring (not), but if there is, I'd have a hard time finding him! The cats, however, would make short order of that situation. They're master lizard hunter/gatherer/munchers! How different could a mouse be - if we actually had one?!

We've also had a change of plans for the holidays……I learned this morning that we'll be hosting the family Christmas Eve party for about 25 folks. This will put a kink in the studio plans, but this is a family emergency and that's what families do!

So, how's your holiday season? Gifts all purchased, made, wrapped and under the tree? Speaking of, is your tree up? How about the outside lights? My answers would be no, no, no, what tree and what outside lights?!

Hope your season is running a bit smoother than mine!!

  1. This guy looks so friendly -- like the perfect host. I can just picture him greeting guests at his front door for a lively party. Happy Holidays!!

  2. Let the panic begin! I'll join you in it as well. Let's see, dinner for 25 on Christmas Eve..... how about.... PIZZA????

    I host Christmas Day, but I make it an open house and set out brunch food, buffet style. Ham, egg casseroles, pastries, etc. No cooking formal dinners for me. Oh, and of course, got to have the Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and kahlua drinks!

    Your penguin looks like he's got someplace to go - so determined! And so festive. Maybe he's off to get his holiday shopping done?

  3. Just set everything aside and plan that holiday meal. Some of the best times are among chaos.

  4. ...oh my gosh....isn't that just the way!! This has been a whirlwind week, and I was absent from the blogosphere for a few days, but now, it's time to get blogging and decorating again. As of about an hour ago, our tree carcass lay on the floor of our foyer (since Wednesday!). It's now in the stand and hopefully will open up by tonight so we can string lights and hang ornaments. Good luck to you!!
