The weather is warm and the blankets are draped on the blanket stand. The stand was crafted by Hubby, and I applied the decorative finish. A simple, attractive, and useful item gracing my daughter’s home. Our boys were given similar blanket stands.
Hubby doesn’t have a workshop currently. We live in a dollhouse, and have been investigating other housing options. The choices are making me crazy.
We could move our dollhouse but the properties we have seen so far are a distance from where we want to be. Purchasing and preparing land for a home is not a do-it- yourself project, and not worth the trouble unless you are going to be happy in the location. We want to live closer to our daughter. What about the boys? The move would shave time off of the travel time to their homes also. Our family is spread out like dandelion fluff on the wind.
If only I could pull my family around me like my favorite warm blanket on a cold winter day . It would be wonderful having my children, their spouses, and my grandchildren surrounding me with their warmth, even on the warmest days. We could have a picnic.
