I am on vacation! I don't have to be back in the office until January second. Whoo-hoo!
I've got a few small projects lined up....
As executor of Charlene's miniature estate, I need to pack her fishing gear and send it to its new home.
I'm assembling a wee metal model kit.
Nancy sent me some play things.
I bought some feves from ValueARTifacts. I can see this becoming somewhat of an addiction.
We have a new dining room table to assemble. It was my husband's grandmother's kitchen table. It is believed that my husband's grandfather made it for her, but we're not certain. Matt's brother inherited it, but he died just after Thanksgiving. He was in poor health and much pain, so his passing was a kindness, though we will miss him very much.
I have a new toy to play with. Guthrie was a Christmas gift from a coworker.
I've finished designing the marker set and pencil case (I think). Lots of math and spatial imagining were involved. If they assemble as intended when I cut them out later today I'll do a happy dance.
Ester requires some extra attention. Now that it's cold outside she's staying in, and she's a bit stir-crazy. She'll be glad to have me home to play with and sleep on. For additional lap-time I bought a set of books that were some of my favorites when I was a girl, The Borrowers. Paper books, not e-books, because I can't relive a bit of my childhood with a reader app. I've always thought I'd do a Borrrowers build, perhaps next year's contest kit will lend itself to the concept.
I hope you all enjoy the holiday season and get to spend some quality time with your loved ones. Virtual hugs from me to you :)
