Baby It's Cold Outside!

BRRRRRRR!  It's a balmy 14 degrees here this morning with about 8" of newly fallen snow.  That deserves another BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!  The best part about all this?  We can't go out!  Jim will be out doing his favorite thing - shoveling snow (the man is crazy but I guess shoveling as a sport is from growing up in Minnesnowta) or playing with his snowblower and clearing out the neighbors when he's done with our place.  Meanwhile back at the ranch, I'll be putzing around in my sewing room - my favorite snow day activity!

After what seems like forever, I'm finally getting ready to move my sewing space around.  In the planning stages for years, I'm FINALLY ready for the strapping sons and son-in-law to help move everything out and then bring just the furniture back in.  I'm sure there will be hoarding comments mumbled many times during this adventure but I will rise above it all and ignore them - they just don't understand a fabric stash.

The big day is the 12th, kids are coming home to have the annual family picture done and they've been given instructions to come with junky clothes and at least an hour to spare.  With five of us helping, it's entirely possible to empty the space and then just bring the furniture back in & put it in it's new configuration.  Right?  I'm going to move all the stuff I can before they arrive to move the project along and most importantly, cut down on the hoarder mumbling.

I just want everything out and all the big stuff Jim and I can't move ourselves back in.  Then I want everyone to go away and so I can putz and arrange everything else myself.  Of course I leave for the Kaye England retreat on the 16th so I will only have a few days of putzing.  Nope, not going to get that all done before I leave!  

I wonder if Jim has realized that all this stuff is going to be moved into his workshop?  I doubt it and I know he hasn't figured out that it won't be all out before I leave for a week either!

Till next time.
