The woman in the pink dress has lost her keys. And her eyeglasses. I'm that woman! Actually, things have become more orderly since I've been out of school, but they're about to get chaotic again. I'd originally signed up for just two accounting courses this semester, which start on Feb. 2--a comfortable workload following a nice break. At the last minute I added a third course, Corporate Finance, which starts at the end of this week. I'm impatient to get out of my present career and into a new one, so I'm going to push myself. So the nice leisurely weekends of stitching and knitting and napping and cooking are coming to an end. Along with remembering to comb my hair before I leave the house. This project, at least, will be done. I didn't finish, but I'm close--just a few more elements to stitch.

One more sampler house from Fredericksburg's historic district. This is a little different--sorry for the angle of the shot--I had to shoot over the parked cars. The colors are remarkable, I think. They are probably historically correct, even though I never would have used that salmon color--ugh. I suspect it's a carpenter gothic, but I'm not sure because the windows are not arched. It's so interesting to have all these different vintage homes on the same streets. When we bought our house, we looked downtown at some historic homes in our budget. There were some houses that were going to need a scary and constant infusion of money--talk about money pits--so we passed.
Have a great week!
