Leaving on a jet plane

As winter does what winter does at our lovely 1870, I'm going to be heading west to Arizona to spend some much needed time with the grandchildren.

Morton sadly isn't joining me for this trip and his trips to the 1870 are very dependent on his work schedule and the weather. Thankfully Jimmy, Amy and Bonbon are happily warm in the cozy basement home to keep the home fires burning.

While I'm away I'll still be sketching, planning and making lists of things to come for our home. Pinterest is going to get me through the homesickness for Morton, the family in Pennsylvania and our lovely 1870. And a little Skype never hurt anyone!

Hope to get some pictures of my plants, proof that they are being watered and some pictures of Bonbon in the snow on our Facebook page too. :)

Hope winter is kind to you and we all get an early and beautiful spring!
