In the middle of winter...

In the middle of winter there are signs of spring.  We have to look really, really closely but there are a few signs.  I write this while in the middle of our 3rd school's out snow day in a row...

Last weekend, Tom and Chief came home with new baby chicks!  This is a sign that spring will arrive one day!

Odds and Ends

I know I've seen this photo a million times but today, I really looked at it. It's gorgeous. Anna is a beautiful model and I love the 'red white and blue' color scheme.  This is the Simply Elegant Hairpin Lace Stole. It's from my Annie's online class, Learn to Crochet Lace: Hairpin, Broomstick, and Bruges Lace.  

Look at THIS. Another great photo. Charlie was on my lap when Minnie happened by within arm's reach. I grabbed her and demanded that Chickee immediately take our photo before Minnie bolted and Charlie cried. They still don't love each other. Just look at Charlie trying to lean away from Minnie!  Still, I NEVER get to hold both my fur babies at the same time. I will cherish that split second of furry happiness. (Minnie has the black face and Charlie has more white on his face).
