Dark Days of Winter....

It seems this time of year we have to make our own light, so what better way than candlelight? The wonderful aromas floating from the kitchen, and the question "Where's the yeast?" prompted me to go see what was going on. I'm typically the one doing the cooking around here, so I was surprised and pleased to find Warren working on a bolognese sauce and bread sticks. I almost felt like I was walking down a cafe lined street in Tuscany! The bolognese sauce was served over linguine, and the bread sticks and Chianti were the perfect complement. The movie Cinema Paradiso and some wonderful eggnog cheesecake made a nice finish to an otherwise dark, dreary Alaska day. Now, off to the treadmill I should go!

I feel as though I've been hibernating, but I've actually been very busy in my "den". Not much work going on in my studio, but a lot of home decorating taking place these days. I've been painting the master bedroom and bath, and Warren and I made a fabric headboard to go with our new bedroom furniture. A few more accessories, one more nightstand.... which seems to be lost somewhere, and the rooms will be finished. Now, on to the next project.............. maybe a little studio time?

My Warren only does soup & salad. He doesn't know his way around the kitchen very much.

I keep telling myself that the light will start returning in 2 more weeks. It was a really dreary day today. I posted on the "Winter Blues"

Time is of the essence someone said... I think that Romance is too when it comes to You and Warren. You guys are too cute.

I don't know how I would manage with so few day light hours - how many daylight hours do you actually have in a normal day in Alaska? I have been to Alaska once but in the summer when it was light until close to midnight and then dark for only 4 hours!
