This happened

That's the Barbie bathroom where the hole in the ceiling leads to an unfinished attic. Now that The Brothers are older, they've taken on the job of  climbing a ladder, hoisting themselves up through the square and getting whatever we need that's been stored up there. This year, they invented a pulley system which took a bit longer but entailed zero help from The Long Suffering Mother. The Christmas decorations are down, and now, in addition to the life-size bilingual Santa, we have boxes filled with Christmas cheer to distribute throughout our mansion.

I know you can't wait.

(I promise that I will have some more in-depth reportage and musings or mullings, along with scintillating poetry one of these days --)


  1. Your new header picture makes me happy. And so does the idea of the boys coming up with a pulley system to get things out of the attic.

  2. I love the header too. The brothers are just endlessly industrious, aren't they?

  3. it's good to have worker bees, busy mother!

  4. Very inventive young men! And I love your new header, too!

  5. Love their system. Any system that doesn't break shit or require my assistance is a good one, as far as I'm concerned.
