Sittin' Pretty

Wow! Day two and already another post. This is promising! Thanks for all the cyber hugs and hellos.

After days of rain and high winds, we finally are being gifted with a day of sunshine and quiet. I can see green grass and bare concrete outside so it looks like spring, but 10cm of snow are called for tonight. Yahoo! I love the snow. I want winter to be winter so we can snowshoe during the day, snuggle in at night with hot chocolate laced with Bailey's, and curl up in front of the fire with a good book feeling all snug and warm while the snow falls outside. Love it, love it, love it.

I don't love AC going out to shovel the stuff in the morning though, but Good Neighbour eases that worry and I am free to relish in the joy of a good snowstorm. So, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I usually have a winter project on the go to keep me busy on a cold winter's night or dull afternoon. At such times you will find me crocheting or knitting something or other. This year Bug and Puff asked for leg warmers for Christmas so I spent many an afternoon and evening working on said items.

On this snowy afternoon Smudge came over to help with the project. What fun! Notice all the cushions spread around just in case she takes a tumble? She wasn't sitting on her own for the longest time, but that is in the past now.
She sits up like a big girl these days, and rather enjoys the whole new view it gives her of the world.
While Gramma and the girl are having a conflab on the floor mom is having a cuddle with the Rockster while she tests her brain age on Grandpa's new DS that he got for Christmas.

Yes, we all enjoyed a warm and fuzzy afternoon. Thesha, Smudge and I have a date for this afternoon too. We are going window shopping, and then will stop at a quaint little cafe for a hot drink before heading back home. Total fun to make a warm memory on a cold day.

Hope you find something heartwarming to do on this cold January day too.

I got the opportunity to try out my daughter's and granddaughter's DS's when they were here over Christmas. My brain age was pretty poor on my first attempt~ I obviously need more practice I shall have to drop a few hints to the family!

chrisb - I know what you mean about brain age being a shock when you first try the thing. I was 70 on my first attempt. Yikes!!!! That was a tad scary, but once I got the hang of how it worked by brain age went down into the 30's. Whew! That is much better.

gina - Thanks. Loved the Christmas card. Always do. Mr P is getting so big.
