My December so far

How is it two weeks from Christmas already?

December has always been the busiest month for me - everyone wants something completed by the holiday.  

And I don't blame them. 

So here's what I've just finished - a sweet Cherry cabinet with storage above for books and computer supplies, and a lateral file drawer below. 

On a completely unrelated note, a friend and I went to dinner the other night at a new restaurant in town, and it has quite a story behind it. You can read about it here - it's a GREAT story!  

Winnie and Ethel's opened in the Huntridge Center in downtown. I'll say - that corridor on Charleston has some of my favorite places to eat! 

It helps that one of my old woodworking students is an owner, and I couldn't be happier for Mal and her hubby, Aaron.

 My dinner visit was terrific - and even though I'm a bit of a grinch about the holidays, I thought the holiday decorations inside were completely awesome.

Better yet - I'm a sucker for old-timey diners, and this place fit the bill. Meatloaf? Hell yeah! Malts and shakes - bring 'em on!

I'd highly recommend that you check out Winnie and Ethel's if you're a fan of 40's inspired diners.  I'm still thinking about their banana split!
