This is our g'daughter Starlet. Our daughter, Emily, was over this weekend to visit with her two children. Fortunately we had more than enough snow for everyone to play in. In fact, we had so much snowy and blowing weather we weren't sure they would be able to make it here as planned. They did arrive, but a day late.
This is a snow cave Starlet built for her brother, Lambert, to snuggle into. Pretty cozy looking and just his size I'd say.
As soon as Starlet arrived she wanted to get down to the lake to fish! You might remember last time they were here in October and the temperature was in the 40's, Starlet went swimming. I don't believe I have ever seen a child so adventurous, curious and excited about life and all it has to offer as she is. She didn't catch any fish, but she found a treasure trove of snails.
This is the same rocky beach were Starlet was fishing the day before. It's now built up with ice and snow. No shore to be seen anymore!
The thermometer outside our kitchen window right now is reading -14C or 8F. Yes, Baby it's cold outside! This is our typical winter weather for this time of the year here-finally.
I'm thinking now that the kitchen is finished I am ready for a fun project. Maybe a baby blanket for g'baby #9? I'm definitely in the mood to sit myself behind my sewing machine and put that pedal to the metal, ladies.
So what are your plans for this week? Any new projects you're working on? I'll be back to let you know how mine's progressing soon, I hope.
