2018-01-16T14:49:47.155-05:00

It seems that you have found a place you enjoy calling home in Tahilla Farm, and I hope others in your family will learn to feel the same. Now that you are settled, I have hopes of sharing visits this summer. I have read several of the books on your list and liked each. There are so many good books out there, and I am so grateful to those who have the ability to provide such entertainment and knowledge to the rest of us. I would love to have that skill. Continue to dream your dreams as you nestle by the fire.

Enjoy your beautiful home Jeanne ..... after all the hard work that you both put into it, it's time to savour it.
..... and, many thanks for the book suggestions ... I needed some inspiration. Happy 2018 to you and your family ... the farm looks wonderful, especially in the snow. XXXX

How absolutely love that you are staying at Tahilla, for the most part, this year. You can really settle in. I imagine you are looking forward to it enormously.

Your stay at the farm sounds both restorative and busy - depending on the project. Excited to see the barn progress. Just popped one of your recommended reads in my Amazon cart! Thanks for the suggestions!

love the snow falling gently on your red barn, the book list and the image of you reading in all of your nooks and crannies. Winter is my favorite time to nestle in. Your's sounds wonderful!
And "The Gentleman from Moscow" is fabulous!!!

2018-01-15T12:44:49.367-05:00

Thank you May! I find myself using Audible mostly in the car and hope to use it at the gym...to make me stay on the treadmill a bit longer. I have also linked it into our sound system in our home so I can listen as I am doing chores. Great for me but not so great for anyone else at home. ;) Kindle tends to be my travel choice and the reading nook is perfect for books. Now that I am here for a spell, I am curious to see how I use all these devices and space.

As for windows and a studio, yes! I would be happy for just that...all else can wait. :)

Thank you Leslie, it is feeling especially cozy with the frigid temps we are having today. You touched on another thing I would love to learn this month...to knit. I decided to call it quits on needlepoint...my eyes just don't seem to like it. I thought knitting might be the way to go...with a much larger needles! Knitting and books sounds like the perfect combination. :)

2018-01-15T12:26:32.511-05:00

Thanks so much for the feedback! I am thinking of adding Eleanor Oliphant to my Audible book reading... decisions, decisions! I am with you on that pot of tea and a great book on a snowy day. Throw in a roaring fire and you would have a hard time getting me out of that chair! Most definitely....life's simple pleasures. ;)

2018-01-15T11:50:00.577-05:00

Thank you for the reading list
Audio are good when painting or sewing for the enhanced concentration, reading nook for the book, and tablet for bed when not too sleepy.
Windows! The #1 splurge, I feel is well spent on the windows, the eyes of the room, especially a studio. The shelving, storage, and sink are all second.

Many good vibes your way for a happy year at Tahilla Farm!

Jeanne,

How wonderful that you will be home at the beautiful Thallia farm for a good bit of time. I am sure that it is magical.

I am looking forward to hearing more of your plans for the barn. I am also sure that it will be less stress for you this time around as you will be on site for the work.

Thank you for the book suggestions! I have read a few but not all on your list and cannot wait to check them out.

Have a wonderful week Jeanne.

Enjoy Tahilla Farm. It is such a beautiful place that I would understand if you never left it again. Thanks for the reading suggestions. I have always managed to find nice books to read from your lists.

I enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant...could not stay focused on Beartown for some reason as I enjoyed his other book...will look at those other titles....I have a stack of books waiting in the wings! Its lovely to have time to read on these winter days...I alternate books with my knitting.

Lovely post, thank you for sharing your reading list. I read and LOVED Beartown and Little Fires Everywhere. I already purchased Homecoming and Eleanor Oliphant... I love a snowy day, a hot pot of tea and a great book! Surely, these are a few of life's great pleasures.

Very poignant post and clever verse, Jeanne. In these early hours of Christmas day and having celebrated with my family on Christmas Eve day, I find myself with a calm and serene day which feels the way we should close out the old year and welcome the new one. With leftovers galore, we'll listen to carols, watch the flickering flames in the fire and relax. May a joyous and healthy holiday season follow you throughout the new year!

2017-12-23T08:30:00.297-05:00

I know this will be a special time for you all to gather in NH - sounds like it will perhaps be a white one there too - but hope it's not freezing rain as showing on the weather map!
Best wishes for a fabulous Christmas dear Jeanne - may 2018 be a healthy, happy and peaceful year for all.
Happy Christmas - Mary x
