Not So Happy Toes....

When the kids were little, every time they were barefoot we would call their toes 'happy toes' because they didn't have to be cooped up in shoes and socks etc.. How they loved their happy toes!!

Two weeks ago, I had happy toes. Oh, they were so happy to be in the warmth of the sand and the sea.











Today it is a different story. My toes are about as cooped up as they can get! And they are not happy.... not happy Bob! A foot of snow in the last 24 hours has me donning the snowshoes to take out the one who DOES have happy toes.....








Sophie!!!! Oh how she LOVES the snow. She runs and leaps and buries her face and looks at me with such delight. Like I somehow provided this opportunity for her. If she only knew....









The past few weeks have been filled once again with 1040's; Schedules A; C; D etc.. Yes, tax season is upon us once again. I am only working part time this year (30 hours week) which is nice. Leaves some time for knitting and baking. (Still haven't figured out how to squeeze in cleaning and grocery shopping, but I'll get there!)

I made this tray of cookies and cake balls this past weekend for a Super Bowl Party. Wish my Vikings could have been playing, but it was not to be. These are K's recipes from her As You Wish baking business, which she has started up once again down at school. I miss having her at home, but am excited to see what this semester holds for her. Plus I am pretty good at coming up with reasons for going down to visit.....




Until Next Time....

At least the cold weather gives us a reason to wear hand knit socks. I too am also tired of snow and cold weather. Spring is just around the corner is what I keep telling myself.
