Life Without Downton Abbey

Last weekend we held a party at Misty and Mike's house for the finale of Downton Abbey.  Just about everyone came in costume (except me--didn't know what to wear).  Misty and Mike served high tea and the goodies were scrumptious--cake, scones, chicken salad and bruschetta, to name a few. It was so much fun that I'm absolutely going to dress up next year, but I think I'm going to wear a period dress like my Grandma Esther wore back then. Here's a picture of the gang. I was busy cleaning up so I missed it, but aren't they all so cute? Misty and Mike are the two on the farthest right. It's going to seem really strange tomorrow night not to be tuning into the next episode of the Granthams and the Crawleys.

My first adventure with KDP

Hey, I did it! I uploaded my first story to KDP. It was fairly easy compared to what I'd heard it could be. Sooo happy I did this. Can't wait to do it again. Here's my cover...

Cabin Fever...


Right now a winter storm is moving in and all I can think of is how much I hate winter. Is it spring yet? I can't go outside, but I can make plans for spring. This little cottage is darling, isn't it? My cabin is bigger than this, but shaped the same, including the porch. I just bought three Crestline paned windows and I'm going to add white shutters, too. Then I'm going to landscape like this, only using rock-faced blocks instead of edging.
