the pics above are from the last snow storm here [ march 1 ] love love it. strange, all i’m hearing is complaining about the weather. people come on ..march is suppose to come in like a lion and out like a lamb. i believe she is holding up her end! anyways soon we will be complaining about the heat, i know i will ;)
sadie appears to be ready for shopping! i found her wandering around the house with her bag in tow, or rather the way she prefers to carry it-around her neck. she looked at me like it was the most natural place to carry a bag, for a dog!
made the cutest pair of boxer shorts! i have 3 more ready to go. these are a quick sew pattern and easy peasy! fast too! several of my co-workers would like a pair for themselves but i am not a sewer for others. plus when you reveal the cost of the fabric they all have that look”are you kidding me”. i think i will keep my present job and continue to sew only for my enjoyment.
attic 24 had a wonderful tutorial on poaching an egg “english” style, and was it yummy. give it a try and be sure to use fresh bread and plenty of pepper.
it’s LENT any plans out there. historically my sister and i give up alcohol but rarely make it the entire 6 weeks. so instead of feeling like a failure we are going to name 10 things a day that we are grateful for. we have our little note books and as it has been known to say: “we are going to name it and claim it” !
enjoy your lent season.

The weather has been amazing on the front range this year, hasn't it? There is so much glorious snow in the mountains, and our days have been doted with sunshine and snow flakes. Not much more that I think that we could ask for :).
