So yeah, I've been gone awhile. And only Miss T has missed me. How sad is that?!
We're smack in the middle of a deep freeze here. High temp today was like 10. It's nice and warm in here though! I went out to get the mail, and that was enough for me. Cold looks good when you're nice and warm, if you're out in it, cold just plain sucks.

Oh well, it's not like we'll never empty another bottle!

Monday, we put on some legs and a skirt, attached it to the wall, and oiled it. So now it looks like this:
OK, it doesn't look like that now, it's already full of crap! But you get the idea.
And today's project...
