2.26.365: Storm clouds and snow

It was sunny and snowing, a weird but beautiful combination.

2.25.365: Abominable SnowCozy

He’s not finished. I think he needs more fur and possibly some arms.

But my coffee is happy to have him around in any case.

2.24.365: My budding Picasso

He’s in his black period right now. It’s all very abstract.

This is how he releases his inner demons and finds his happy place.

2.23.365: Ready to Roll

Like it’s not hard enough to chase him when he’s on his own two feet… I know! Let’s give him wheels!

2.21.365: I don’t like leaving my house when it looks like this

Let’s face it: I don’t like leaving my house when it’s below 75 degrees. I’m a wimp and I like sunshine. This day was not sunny. It was icy and windy and stupidly cold.

2.20.365: Putting the masses to work

Problem: My house is a mess.

Solution: Get someone else to clean it.

Problem: My kids are stuck inside and driving me crazy.

Solution: Give them something to do.

2.19.365: Zombunnies

Zombunny number one is complete. The body parts are done for number two. He just needs his face embroidered.

I needed a break, so I’m working on my Abominable SnowCozy for a while.

I swear, I’m mostly normal.

2.17.365: Character Counts

Six times a year the teachers at the girl’s school get to nominate a kid from their class for a character counts award based on the six pillars of good character. This month’s pillar was Caring and both the girls ended up winning the award.

Can I tell you that although I was pretty darn proud of the straight A reports cards they brought home a couple of weeks ago, I’m even more proud of this? I like that my girls take care of people and I like that their teachers recognize them for something other than knowing how to recite the multiplication table or the alphabet. I especially like that their teachers came up to me and told me how great the girls are to have in class.

Also? Free Subway gift certificates are nice too.

2.16.365: Finis

It’s finally done. Thank god. In case you were wondering? Scarves are boring. The same stitch, over and over and over. Next up? Zombunnies. There is nothing boring about Zombunnies.

Why am I hiding my face? Because I’m sick, yo. Sick and yucky and I’m the wonderful kind of person that spares their friends and relatives from viewing that kind of ick.

You are welcome.

2.15.365: Every evening…

…the sun sets on two horizons at our house.

How many places do you think can say the same thing?
