Well, it had to happen...

First Snowfall of 2007
FOOTNOTE: HATS BY BEN
and the fact that it didn't happen until the middle of January is really, well, weird...

First Snow!

but the kids are happy, even about having their snowpants on, and it does feel much more 'right' now - I mean, this is Southern Ontario, for God's sake - we should be sick and tired of this stuff by now, and instead we're (read: I'm) kind of excited about it!

So as they tumble and slide and come in periodically for dry mitts, I am wrapped in domesticity - working on a Ball-Band washcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting - very cute, pic to come - baked beans in the crockpot, bread in the bread machine - oh my God, I am turning into June Cleaver!!!

Hell, it could be worse, I suppose... I could be turning into Wally or Eddie Haskell or something...

and thanks for all the very very kind words about my return here - I feel so much better I can't tell you (well, my constant blogging probably says enough), and I am just so very happy to hear from people again - yay!

I will leave you with this idea for a new hobby, should knitting prove to be lacking in challenge (HA! As if!) Any guesses as to what it's made from?

That is so beautiful! I can't guess 'cause I linked to Flickr for a better picture and it's labeled. :-(
Finally snow! It has been some odd weather this year hasn't it? Hats by Ben? He made them? That is great. What a guy! As long as your kids don't go Eddie Haskell you are alright. I just made cinnamon buns the hard way and was totally thinking I should make some bread. I went through a phase a few years ago of baking our own bread. The smell...the bread machine is just as good, if not better. I love those Ball Band washcloths. So simple yet so versatile.

It looks to me like the ends of pencil crayons...
