Winter is upon us!  7 inches of snow!  Unheard of in these parts.  Beautiful!  We are nice and cozy in front of the fire though.  Love that warm heat.  The day after this was taken, our wood stove started smoking really bad and we have had to troubleshoot t...

We have been spending much of our time making Christmas presents, and since Christmas is not the "ghost of Christmas past" yet, I can't show what we have been working on.  However, I can show you what looks like a character from that movie.  My husband read...
