Today is the Chinese New Year, the year of the pig. I carved this little fellow for a New Year swap. He was taken from a photograph of a pig I met in Oregon, and he’s inspired by Wilbur, the pig in Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White.
I stayed up until nearly midnight to see the eclipse of the wolf moon, but I sleep at night. Mark, my husband, doesn’t. So he looked at the moon, and in the morning I found this picture he drew for me.
We’ve been to Chicago, and got another good look at their Cultural Center. An amazing place, with two glass domes! A beautiful city, hanging out with friends we don’t get to see often, and sunny weather made this a wonderful mini-vacation!
Every year we let our guests trim our tree, with ornaments they make from the pipe cleaners (aka chenille strips) we supply.
We visited the Stahls automotive museum in Chesterfield, MI, recently. To call it a car museum is an understatement. Most everything is unique, carefully restored, and lots of fun to check out!
