A little bit of skiing

I am about four weeks behind on that post.
We did get away for a little bit of skiing during very warm  spring winter vacation.
The temperature reached almost seventy, but there was enough snow to keep the kids going.
Nobody complained of being cold!
I chaperoned, who ever needed chaperoning or other kinds of assisting.
The only thing I regret about this winter is the fact that I didn't have a chance to have a good XC run at Pulaski park :(

In search of spring

With my camera around my neck, I have set out to look for the signs of spring. The time was right, it was the first day of spring, quite sunny, not too cold. Well, there weren't many ( signs ), which did not surprise me much. A wave of cold air decided to take over the March in Rhode Island. One can't do nothing about it but hope and wait patiently :)

Not very impressive signs of spring in my backyard :(

Yarn Along

I have finished my owl basket. In eyes of many it might look imperfect but I think it came out very cute; and my kids agree with me. I can fit in it many important things :)
I have started reading " The dance of the dissident daughter " by Sue Monk Kidd. I haven't gotten too far in it yet, but I know I won't be disappointed!

Winter walk

I feel like I repeat myself; more winter pictures and more snow. But how could I pass it if we ended up going for a family walk! The weather for the beginning of winter vacation couldn't be better. It was warm, and sunny and just so fresh:)

Yarn Along

In addition to working on my prayer shawl and finishing a sweater, I have decided to crochet a basket.
My yarn and the yarn projects were so disorganized that I needed a solution. So far I reused better looking boxes and a self sewn tote bag.
Yesterday I came upon owl patterns on Pinterest; the basket one was very cute. I think it might work as a solution to the yarn problem but also to store some other things around the house. If I only make more of them :)

I am still reading Thomas Merton and "The seven storey mountain" plus few other self-help books about worrying and anxiety; gotta educate myself on few things here !

Winter revisited

The kids have an early extended weekend; by two days. Today was shoveling day. Andrzej is still working on the driveway at 9 pm, but I see some nice XC skiing trails in the near future :)

Yarn Along

I am still working on the prayer shawl. It will take a month or two to finish, but that's all right.
I am happy with the choice of books. I am reading " The Broken Way" by Ann Voskamp and " The Seven Storey Mountain" by Thomas Merton. Highly recommend them :)
