Shana Tova - A Sweet New Year!

For the last week, we've been celebrating the High Holy Days, the start of the Jewish new year. It's fun to think about where the house, and our little family, will be at this time next year! It feels especially appropriate to appreciate this new beginning in autumn, when I always get a surge of new energy and enthusiasm for all things homey.

Charging ahead!

We've also been pretty inward-focused on ourselves, rather than on the house. In addition to attending services, I got a cold, Hermione got fleas, and Brett was on crutches. Between the three of us, we spent a lot of time grumbling and slathering clove oil on everything in sight.

So we are still, frustratingly, a tantalizing three feet away from finishing the deck. Sigh. Well, it will get done in the new year!

On the productive side, we have now scrubbed the house from stem to stern. It's cleaner and more organized that it's been in ... er, actually, ever.

Hermie poses while plotting how to make a new, bigger mess in the new year.
See you in 5775!
