April

Hi everyone!  I'm still around -- just haven't had time to put together a post.  First things first; I'm so, so sorry that I haven't been by to visit my dear fellow blogging friends!  I have to say that this situation is taking a little getting used to.  😉  I do love having Mr. Forest Manor here during the day, but... it certainly changes my schedule.  I consider this a rehearsal for retirement; we're in training, I suppose.  😜  Anyhoo, with both of us here all the time, we're consuming an awful lot of food.  Suffice it to say, I've probably gained back every pound I had lost last year.  Sigh.  At any rate, the kitchen is definitely getting a workout.  I'm constantly thinking that I'm so thankful we had the re-model done in 2012, and I'm glad we gave careful thought to our new storage spaces, in addition to the new sink, stove, and dishwasher.

Love Is In The Air

Hello everyone!  Did you have a good Valentine's Day?  My mom and I went to lunch, which we thoroughly enjoyed, and then I spent the evening with my darling Hal.  I put this table together over a period of days, and I had a lot of fun with it.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out; I think it's my favorite Valentine's table so far.  Well actually, my favorite is the year I accidentally put the silverware on the wrong side of the plates, took all the pictures and posted, before I realized what I'd done.  It would be hard to top that one.  😏

Ten Years of "House at Forest Manor"

Hello Friends!  In January of this year, I began my tenth year of blogging -- I can hardly believe it.  In some ways it seems like it hasn't been any time at all since I published that first post in 2011; then in other ways, it feels like I've been doing this always.  I've noticed some of my blog friends have also been writing their blog for ten years; I didn't realize that so many of us had started around the same time.  I just always assumed that everyone else had been at this a lot longer than me.  :D

Lenox "Holiday" Tablescape

I set a Christmas table this year, even though my family got together at my mom's house.  I made some pictures since I'll shortly be taking this down and putting everything away until next Christmas.  These were the dishes I inherited last year when Hal's great-aunt, Dorothy, passed away.  My sister-in-law will be getting a set, as well.  I feel so fortunate to have received these dishes; they really do set such a pretty table.

Welcome To A New Year

Hello to you all and Happy 2020!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas at your home.  We certainly did, but boy was it rushed.  Such a short (and fast) time between Thanksgiving and Christmas in 2019.  Whew!
  
I have been so slow lately; here it is January 7th, the day after Epiphany, and I'm just now getting to share some pictures of our Christmas decor.  If you're a regular visitor here, you know I don't do a lot that's different from year to year because I have such a sentimental attachment to our Christmas things.  However, I do try to change things up a little, just to keep it from getting too humdrum.  If you're sick of seeing Christmas pics, you'll probably want to skip this post.  :D
