A thank you dinner for my sister and her fam for watching the cat, plants, and house while we were away. Adah missed us a lot.
For the last evening of our vacation (read as "I have to go back to work tomorrow.") we went to an empty movie theater. Then we saw Saving Mr. Banks.
You know, we expected to come home and for winter to be over. Well it's not. This tiny covering of snow dust was just the beginning.
My cute bandages make my small cut look like a way bigger deal than it was.
We've been on a backgammon kick lately.
Custard in the making. For a pie. Duh.
It's Sammy's birthday and she gets treated like royalty.
Having a walk and talk with my mom and saw this tree trying to make out with me.
Grilled pita sandwich on a pretty plate. (It's been real cold and quiet around here lately.)
I normally don't go beyond the front door like this but I was feeling particularly lazy, and Andy had to pick up his truck from the shop. I got locked out upon my return and waited for 45 minutes for Andy to get back. I might have gone to a neighbors, but then I saw this.
My cooking companion for the evening. He is really good at what he does.
I unloaded my accessories tin from vacation. I like sea creature earrings. I brought this ostrich button with me because I knew I was going to ride one and I thought this would give me a deeper connection with the bird. I think it worked.
Pigtails and Crewcuts
Somebody is not excited about getting her first hair cut. She calmed down after she got to suck on her pacifier.
Watching Molly perform with The Girtles! (And other Beatles cover bands.)
New knitting project has begun.
Finished the icing and working on the dough.
An evening stroll in the snow. It was quite the accumulation!
I'm finally a Settler of Catan. I think I've got my Friday night activity figured out for the rest of my life.
We have a zillion strips of paper left over from our wedding. Every night Andy's working, I write him a note and leave it on his pillow. They become stars in the jar with all the other nice messages friends and family wrote us on our wedding day.
