How are you today?
I wanted to share the progress the little oak tree is making.
It's so cheerful to see these lovely leaves emerging.
It's been a lovely week here enjoying
We have been out learning to ski and
working on the snow castle.
I followed my children down a hill on my skis.
I made it down on my feet....
minus my poles and most of my dignity.
Ha! At least not too many people were looking.
Evening walks have been so delightful
as you don't even need to use a flashlight with the
moon shining so brightly!
A friend also came to see me and brought me a gift.
Some vodka to make some vanilla with.
I've never done this...
but it's already starting to have a touch of colour.
Now to wait and wait and wait for it to be ready.
I've been knitting more.
I received a great deal on yarn
at one of our local shops and so I was able to buy
even more sock yarn.
Lots of feet to cover. :)
My son needed some zippers fixed on his snow pants.
I don't know about you but zippers are not my friend and so
I opted for sewing on some velcro that thus far has
seemed to do the job!!!!
Now he doesn't get snow up in his boots anymore.
Sometimes I think it would be nice to knit this little girl some
socks for her feet.
Out in the cold often tucking her little toes into her tummy to warm them.
I've also been making lots of hot chocolate mix as we've been taking our
little thermos cups with us out on outings.
I use a big mason jar (1/2 gallon).
1/3 cocoa, 1/3 powdered milk, 1/3 sugar, &
a couple packages of vanilla sugar.
Easy and more economical then buying the mix at the store.
I hope you are all enjoying the day!
Love and Prayers,
