Check that off the list!

The carpenter came and installed my fireplace mantle last night. I did a little dance of joy as he was bringing in the pieces, but had to hide downstairs while he was installing them. I sometimes get compulsive about that sort of thing, and I just had a feeling it would be better to be downstairs than hovering over his shoulder and watching the whole time. So instead I cleaned the catbox and crocheted more of the baby blanket I'm working on.

When he finally finished, I popped upstairs and stared at my new fireplace. It's beautiful. It's not stained yet, and we still have to install the tile, but it's perfect. I can't wait to post pictures.

I've recently discovered the joys of high-threadcount sheets. I'm never going to be able to go back to the normal ones again. But boy are those things expensive! If I hadn't got them at half off, there would be no way I'd pay that much for sheets. Now I'm going to have to start watching for mega-sales, to keep us in the good stuff.
