Happy New Year!

Honestly, I can hardly believe it's 2010. I remember when 2010 was some distant date they used in the old sci-fi movies!
We shared Christmas day (and dinner) with family...a large group this year, including lots of children, which is always fun! This is me (in the middle) with my sis and sis-in-law/cousin.

I've been such a bad blogger...never posting. A couple of months ago I painted the dining room and changed it from red to a light green. The paint is from Ace and I think the color is called Prairie Grass. This room was red so I did prime it first, but usually I don't even have to prime with Ace paint. It covers really well. The red was nice, but after 6 years, I was ready for a change and I'm loving how much lighter the room is now.

I love having a place for the books!

Joe was building a bookcase in the living room and last month he finished it out and we painted that room too. It took two tries, but I like the color we ended up with. Every year I seem to get out less Christmas decorations. This year it was the tree, the mantle, the nativity and a couple of wreaths. Simple, and easy to put away too.

With the windchill at -12 degrees, I'm enjoying knitting up some warm socks that much more. Just started this pair yesterday. My sister and I are planning to get away to someplace where we won't even have to wear socks, and hopefully we'll get lots of drawing and relaxing done while we are there. Tell you more about that tomorrow, if I can actually bring myself to write posts two days in a row!
