I picked Lindsey up at the train station this morning
and when we got home we put a roller in her hands.
Here's Hannah working on a shelf and Shaker pegs.
Gretta is putting the finishing touches on a closet
door that was missed first time around.
We're starting to think about staging and so
we brought the dollhouse down from the attic.
My Dad made this for Lindsey when she was
a very little girl,
the same Christmas that he made
the curio cupboard for Stewart.
The tiny autumn leaves he painted on the roof
of the house get to me every time I see them.
Batman served as foreman today,
working a bit, and then taking an after lunch siesta.
It's been flurrying all day long.
The snowdrops are up in the garden and
the hellebores are showing signs of life.
Tonight we'll all have tacos and Margaritas.
It's good to have the high energy
of the Reed girls back in the house.
Many hands make light work.
