I started the day with some family cuddles (we slept in until 8am. I realize that at one point of my life, that would sound rather pathetic). Next was breakfast, lounging, reinstalling the car seat, and some computer time where I confirmed that I will be getting 7 Wyandotte eggs in March on our way home from Ontario. Whoo hoo! I'll have a mix of silver laced, gold laced, and blue laced reds. Aren't they pretty birds? After they hatch out, I plan on getting some Australorp eggs to hatch.
(Both images from http://www.mypetchicken.com/)After some lunch, we headed out for a family ski on the lake. The sun was beating down. The snow was actually pretty terrible for skiing and the tracks had been obliterated by snowmobiles and melting, but we had fun all the same.
After that, it was time for a relaxing bath, family phone calls (well, skype, actually), a little bite of dinner, some Seinfeld, and some crafting!
I made a little teepee for my garden out of willow. Notice the mess. My mother can attest to the fact that I have always been a messy person. When I was a toddler, she would cringe at the sound of the toy basket being dumped right upside down. The older I got, the messier my room became. If anyone was looking for scissors, tape, glue, rulers, etc, they knew to look in my room. I blame it on my creativity. It thrived on that mess. I am improving now that I am an adult, but there are certain closets that should never be opened without taking the proper precautions.
And now that the baby is in bed, it is time to catch up on emails and blog posts, and knit a few more rows of my new project (don't you wish you could see it!). And tomorrow is a new day with new adventures!
