just peeking my head in to say hello, how are you and happy new year : ) i really haven't been up to anything of interest at all, just growing my wee belly and fighting the exhaustion and the heat. oh, the heat! the days over 35ºC (of which there have been many the past month) have reduced me to a miserable, dazed, sodden, whinging mess and i'm already longing for autumn. shane bought me a hammock for christmas and i spent copious amounts of time swaying in the breeze below the lemon tree when it was cool enough over the holidays, devouring book after book, until i'd put away 7 novels in three weeks (too lazy to type out all the titles right now but barbara kingsolver and margaret atwood were heavily featured, along with david eggers). my craft room is, for the most part, finished and unpacking has begun. i just need to find a nice, deep shelving unit for my fabric so i can sort through the 10 or so boxes and decide what i'm keeping and what is heading into the gathers shop. the photo above is baxter's new designated spot on the sofabed in the craft room, he's quite pleased to sit there and watch me put things in their place. it's supposed to be nice and cool this weekend so i have grand plans to finally get something accomplished, possibly *gasp* even some sewing. if nothing else, i'll grab some pics of the teak shelving unit in the craft room so i have something to show and tell next week.
