It is snowing here. REALLY snowing. We've had a dusting for the past few days, but this evening it got serious and hasn't stopped yet. It is beautful. The girls are so excited. There was a snowball making frenzy in the backyard right before dinner. Eva is tickled about the prospect of her first snow day. These pictures were taken this morning, before it really started.
My birthday was yesterday - still technically in my mid 30s (whew!) We had a quiet, enjoyable day. Bryce and the girls gave me a beautiful cashmere scarf. Around lunch time, we went to the city center to walk around and see the sites. There was a farmer's market going on which we meandered through. Can't wait to go again when it's not freezing. We had lunch out. The strangest thing about my birthday was being in a different time zone. My birthday here was over when it was just beginning at home. Sorta seems like 2 birthdays. Happy Birthday to my FIL who celebrated his on the 21st!
Oh, are you wondering about my grocery shopping tutorial? It was very helpful. I was introduced to the organic part of the grocery store where skim milk, humus and falafel patties are located - all good things! I was also shown where the canned beans were located and introduced to some Indian simmering sauces that will be useful for a quick dinner. Mostly, though it was just nice to visit with someone.
Rumor has it that our air shipment is arriving this week. So very happy as it has our Christmas gear. I almost have a quilt top finished (I bought an inexpensive sewing machine.) It just needs a border. Hoping to share photos this week.
