Everyone helped to finally put away our Christmas decorations and while the furniture was still away from the walls, we took care of some projects. First of all we put up the crown moulding, chair rails, and baseboards in the living room. After that, we framed some nice prints and hung a few. We have more to hang and have some art prints on the way to us. The pictures that were hung today are cropped posters that everyone liked. It makes an inexpensive way to get art on the walls.
I am hoping to finish the living room this month. Next month, we will be working on gettting our kitchen just right. We have a lot of work ahead of us.

The only good thing that has come of this ordeal is that I now have the correct undergarments to wear beneath my 1860's fashions. Although I must say that wearing all these clothes makes it impossible to sit in a chair with arms. I have been sitting on my piano banch or an ottoman when wearing the complete outfit.
Today Dar'mate is working on a blouse for me. She decided that I need more than one blouse if i am to have numerous suits.

I must admit, I was more than a little disturbed when Thorley and Dima removed my piano from the livingroom to make room for their pool table.
I think Amina looked adorable sitting on the floor with her Dimas. The only problem was that I was lonely, even in the midst of family and friends, because Girarard wasn't there.

Everyone really enjoyed the carrot cake for dessert.
While I was busy seeing her off, Girard left for parts unknown and left a note saying he would be in contact by New Year's Eve. I got an email from him yesterday to expect my home Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on what flight he can get. I still don't know why he left or what was so important that he missed Christmas and New Year's Eve. He said all would be made clear when I saw him.
Knowing that Asha is with Jake made it all the harder being away from Girard during the holidays.
You are probably wondering how that relates to my blog.
You have no time to think and write if you are a fit mannequin. This was the first day she started on the outfits. I already have a suit and blouse, under-petticoat and half a hoop-skirt. After she made the suit and blouse, she ordered more Susan Sirkis patterns, this time for 1861-1865.
My goal today is to get caught up through at least my Christmas entries.
