New stove

Here's a picture when I still had hair:
Kate and Rob with hair
 We got a new wood stove, big enough to heat the whole house from the downstairs. Monday the chimney sweep came and gave it a clean bill of health - better than the old one upstairs.

The scarf look

Smile for the camera
 In the pictures above you can't see the whole scarf, but the colors are better than the image below. I made this scarf in grad school with a friend who wanted to learn batik. We spent many joyful hours with melted wax over a sterno fire. We also learned a lot about color theory, this being yellow and turquoise dye. The designs are from a Chinese paper cut book I just adore.
Whole scarf
 The fan really is turning:
Stove as the star

First picture caption says "Rob with hair" -- you can look back a few years from now when *he* is bald and have a laugh! (sorry, Rob). The scarf is gorgeous, this is the definitive pirate look of course, you realize.
