We just went to Dave and Barbara's house, the strawbale that they have been building since June, to have the first "guest" dinner there. It looked so welcoming, walking up.
And how wonderful the inside is shaping up! The kitchen cabinets are still being installed, but that will be the finish. Then it will be "just" the small stuff, like hanging quilts, building bookshelves.
What a cozy place, and what a wonderful, and delicious, Christmas Eve.
