How is your day going?
How is your day going?
It's a snowy cloudy day here with light breezes.
The kids are out shovelling some on the driveway.
It's good to keep at it while it's still fluffy.
The snow is so beautiful and the evergreens laden branches
droop and when swaying in the breeze at times
drop their burdens onto those who dared to be underneath them.
Good thing to remember to tuck that scarf well
around your neck to keep the snow out.
This past sock project I tried the german short row heel.
Well I would love to say it went smoothly...
but in all honesty it was a challenge for me.
I don't usually drop many stitches but I'll just say that
my little crochet hook kept me company on this project.
I love how crochet hooks can pick up stitches so cleanly.
Well now my son has a new pair of socks to help keep his feet warm.
I have a few more to go although I'm taking a break
from big people feet to make some small boys ones.
I have chosen the blue stripped yarn above and hope he will like it.
This past week has been what I would call "the usual".
The regular routine of daily chores and meals.
We're starting to incorporate more soups into the menu.
I made a vegetable leftover soup with leftover noodles, then
my daughter made some bacon mushroom cream soup.
I want to bake some savoury biscuits soon to go with our soups.
Do you like soup?
Oh one new thing for this winter is that our family have
borrowed skis again from our community centre.
One of my sons and I tried ours out across the lake
and it was fun to go out on them again.
It's nice that we can bring them home to ski around here
and then take them with us back there to use their trails.
The trails there are groomed and have lots of variety to enjoy.
OH....and old plunger sticks. Were you curious about that?
Well I have more wool socks that need to be hung up to dry.
I didn't have a place for some of my sock forms so I looked around
the laundry room corners and found this old plunger stick.
So along with a couple nails we now have a place
to hang them up to dry.
Our laundry room is unfinished so this worked well.
Not fancy, but functional.
Not everything in our lives needs to be Pinterest worthy.
Well I hope you have a wonderful day
enjoying the beauty and functionality of your homes.
Love and Prayers,
