before 12

This book came in at the library tonight. It is called, Extra Yarn. The main character is Annabelle and she knits for everyone in her town, even the not so nice ones, and....she is a yarn bomber! I don't think I could knit for a hole tree, but I would love to knit a rainbow sweater for one of the trees by our house.

E. wanted me to take a picture of him as he was slept, on the night before his birthday. I can't believe he will be twelve tomorrow. I am quite sad, but so happy to have him.

Woke up to almost three feet of new snow on the ground, waded to work, it was up to my thighs.

a terrarium with a t-rex

out again

Now that it is spring, I know that this can't last, but I know that soon enough we will have many many more days like this, and without coats.

a day away

Even though spring is officially a day away, it felt as though it was here today. We celebrated early by going out to lunch. There was a biting cold wind, but we had a lot of fun at our favorite rock hunting spot.

kitties, made beds, and fur

So I like to make my bed in the morning, mainly so I feel better, but also so that kitties (we won't say any names here) don't lay on the sheets or pillows and make them furry as kitties like to do. I came home this evening and when I looked into my bedroom at my made up bed just waiting for me in a couple of hours, I saw a lump close to my pillow. I touched this lump and it made a noise that sounded like "don't disturb", and presently a very warm and annoyed kitty came out of my once fur free sheets.

rippin' the nar

Eoghan (in black next to the orange figure) on the real mountain for the first time. I only watched long enough to take this picture, for as his best friend Soren put it, "they were rippin' the nar". And that they were!

a baybooooo!

After this mama sea otter would dive for food her babe would cry, Jonas began to imitate the babies cries, and then the mama found it was time to leave. I can't blame her. A baybooo by the way, is a very cute baby; and you say it in a very annoying high pitched voice, while making any weird face you choose.

Pony: a tree jockey

Quite pleased with his ski helmet, he continued to wear it for days inside and out even though there was no more skiing involved.

 We found this great tree with a saddle and a grip.
