Hiver arrive et mise à jour DH

Winter is here.  3 nights of really heavy frost.  The Banana tree has collapsed, but, surprisingly, the geraniums are still in one piece.  Must take them in before they get blasted tonight!

The wood for the wood burners was delivered on Thursday.  Deux brasse of oak stacked up against the wall ready for DH to saw into 50 cm  lengths.  I think we shall be warm this winter.


DH is doing fine - he can't believe all the get well wishes flooding in from all over the world and is very very touched.  The nurse has been coming in every day to change the dressing.  Today she said the wound is healing very well and he can make a rendez vous with the medecin next Wednesday to decide when the stitches have to come out.

The top of HH is nearly there.  There has been a slight hiccup (quoi de neuf LOL).  I was going to put piano keys along the bottom but it didn't look right so "halloween" is going in instead.  "Haunted houses" and "ghoulies" have been stitched to the inner border so I guess I am 75% there.

It has taken me years to get a photo like this.  I love the way the branches reach up to the sky like fingers.


Have a great weekend.

Good to hear your husband is getting better. I wish you could send some cool weather to Kaohsiung, it's still too warm here during the day although the nights are getting cooler.

Glad to hear your husband is doing well. Yep, winter has arrived here as well. We're supposed to get snow at some point today. Um -- not to complain, but, I'm NOT READY for snow!

Your DH had better hurry up and recover, as he has a lot of wood to chop!!

Love the photos you're posting. It was three years ago that we were on our European adventure. *sigh*
