Not much going on around here. Craft-wise I’m working on my back-tack project and putting together a bunch of packages. Oscar-wise I’m trying to get used to the new haircut we gave him last night. We chopped it all off and now with the super short hair Oscar doesn’t look so much like my little baby anymore – in fact he looks like trouble! Looks like the SuperNanny should be pulling up to our door any minute. Odd what a difference a haircut can make.
The other thing running through my addled mind today, besides willing Oscar’s hair to grow, is daydreaming about a place to move to where we could actually afford a house. It’s a useless endeavor as I don’t know how we could take this baby away from his grandparents and auntie, but still it’s addictive looking around on realtor.com. It’s amazing how low housing prices are in some parts of the country. What spurred this on is our friends just up and bought a huge beautiful farm house in Indiana for nothing. And they bought a lot of the furnishings along with it. The photos they showed us are amazing, fireplace in every room, wide plank maple floors, etc. Put me in a country mood so I had to go check out one of my favorite sites, Shaker Workshops. These are some of my longtime shaker crushes that I will have to have for the cool mod 70s split level with walk out basement and mountain view for 150K that I’m hoping to find on realtor.com one of these days.
