WE GOT SNOW!

Over 5 inches here at our house!

My kids have never seen this much snow down here... nor are they used to having it stay more than a few hours! This has been a huge blessing for them, and I am so grateful!






Thomas, Grace, Joseph, and my husband were there on the hill yesterday, but I didn't get pictures of them. Bad Mommy.


On a completely different note, I'm also thrilled to say that I'm starting to get my creative juices flowing again.  I have let myself stagnate for far too long, so it's about time to start working on "making stuff!" Inspired by these people, and this book, the kids and I started working on nature journaling again. I was pretty happy with how this one turned out.


And after my first visit to a REAL yarn store, I had to start playing with all the great skeins I bought. This picture doesn't begin to do this yarn justice. It is BEAUTIFUL! I'm treating myself to a quick crocheted scarf because... well... I don't have one!


Hope you're having a great week!

Hey there, lurker!

I know you must be laughing at how life skidded to a halt down here with 5 inches of snow. Today was the third day of schools being closed, and people are still hesitant to get out...

pfft - laughing sort of :) I remember how it is done there. I'm sort of glad that you guys got some snowfall that was worthwhile!! Good thing you can bake your own bread. Now, about the milk....
