New Year's Eve

Chaos. Good chaos, but chaos nonetheless. The house is a mess. It amazes me how remodeling one little room can turn the house upside down. The worst room is my studio - NOT because I've been working in it but because it is closest to the office that is getting the redo. I finally surrendered and admitted to myself that this year will end without me finishing the "now, now, now" piece as I had planned.

We've had more parties and gatherings than usual this December. Tonight we are having a some friends over to help us celebrate the end of this decade and the blue moon. I got a pork shoulder braising in the oven in a bath of Guinness, cherries, red onions, and sweet potatoes. My daughter says the aroma is wonderful - I can't tell but I'm pretty sure I smell like it too!

We are planning to have a wonderful New Year's Eve and hoping everyone everywhere has one as well!!!

See ya in Twenty Ten.

Aren't remodels fun? Even just one room!

Everything probably got dumped in your studio, right?
