Keeping Busy

I must say that this has been the most depressing winter I have ever known!  With the continual snow and sub-zero temps, I will be welcoming spring with open arms! 

The children here have not had a full week of school since before Christmas.  If it is not a delayed day, it is a closing of school.  I am so glad Laura is not a senior this year. 

What has been keeping you from going crazy this winter?  I have started to crochet so many things that my WIPs far out number my completed things!  I have finished my daughter Ashleigh's birthday present.  When it gets closer to her birthday, I'll show it to you.  Don't want her to get a peek before her day!  I have also been getting back to cross-stitching.  It has been a good long time since I've cross-stitched and I realized how much I have missed it.  I'm working on a couple of pictures I want to hang and also planning out some Christmas decorations for next year. 

I am trying to read a book a week, but I think I have fallen asleep more than I have read! This weather makes me so tired.  I am almost finished a Phryne Fisher mystery. Do you know Miss Fisher?  She is an amazing woman. The books are written by Kerry Greenwood, taking place in Australia in 1928.  This will be the second time I am reading them.  I started watching the mystery series on Acorn TV.  I think it is also available on Hulu or Netflix.  The series is almost spot on with the books.

Well all, I must go, as my banana bread is needing to come out of the oven.  I don't know what I would do if I couldn't bake!  I love it! 

I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world.  If not, do something that you really love and make your own sunshine!  Hug someone, see a funny film, a have good meal and share your love with all!

Until next time, 

Hugs from me to you


  1. We had a taste of spring this week, enough that the blooming (along with my allergies) has started. Turned cold again last night, but the sun is out. Happy springtime, Deb.

  2. I hope by now you are feeling a spring in your step and colour in your world x
