Hmm, Blonde or Brunette?

Me, with husband Andy at a fancy dinner in 2007...

Me, in my sewing room, 2010...

I think I may actually be having more fun as a blonde. Although it's probably due more to being in my sewing room than the color (or lack thereof) of my hair.

What's changed for you in the last 3 years?

Snow in the Swamp

Here's what 6-7 inches of snow looks like in the swamp.

I'm glad to be back inside with a warm cup of coffee. How are things at your place?

Is it snowing yet?

I'm staring out of my dining room window, watching for the promised snow storm. A guy on the radio said it's been seven years since we've had more than an inch of snow. It's about time. I've got bread in the freezer, two and a half gallons of milk in the fridge and a fresh jar of peanut butter. I think I'm ready.
I'll report back later.


Okay, I'm back. It's snowing in the swamp. Officially.
Ummmm, what do I do with all this bread, milk and peanut butter?

Going for a Walk

I love to walk to the mailbox with my children. When we lived in the suburbs, that wasn't so exciting--you know, down to the end of the paved driveway and back. But now that we're in the country, it's a grand adventure.
Especially when there are puddles begging to be stomped in.

Love This (If I say so myself)

I have been on the lookout for a large fabric basket, but hadn't seen one I liked (for less than a bazillion dollars). Turns out, it was a good thing that I didn't find one, because it got my creative juices flowing.
Here's the result of my whirlwind of creativity:
