Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

 In the knitting basket I am working on several different projects currently. I just do a little every day. It is a perfect thing to do when baby is eating and snuggling while little girls read me stories from Dr. Suess. ( My oldest is learning to read and she can read me two books now. It is a very exciting time). They have become accustom to my knitting, my 2 yr old now tells me to come, sit and knit while she plays or shares books with me. I think she wants me to finish her sweater. 

I am reading a new book entitled, The Movement of Stars by Amy Brill. I am only a few chapters into the story but I am intrigued enough to continue reading. I really love finding good books to read. I have a stack of new books to read and several cookbooks from the library. I love pouring over cookbooks and finding new recipes to try. 

Hope you find time this week to curl up with a good book or some knitting and enjoy! Happy Wednesday!

The Weekend

:: The Weekend :: 

Our second week with three children gave way to a restful and fun weekend of firsts for our family. 

* Friday night was an evening out to celebrate the birth of our third child and my birthday which was Wednesday. Just the two of us. My love and I. It was glorious and delicious. We went to a little restaurant down the road from our house. We may have only been gone for 2 hours but it was just what we needed. An added plus was that the grandparents got to soak up the love from our babes. 

* Saturday we had to go out and buy shoes for the girls. It was an much overdue shopping trip. I came home to a package of yarn on my doorstep. Yay! I ordered some yarn from Quince & Co. to start a scarf I fell in love with on their website: Beech.

* Saturday evening was a quiet dinner and evening of painting, music, and yarn winding. Baby laid in my lap and was enthralled with the swift spinning wildly as I wound the yarn. 

* Sunday morning was a groggy morning of a lot of tea and coffee since everyone decided to stay up late into the night! Not one of our finer nights at home. But pancakes and bacon make up for a rough night of sleep. 

* Sunday evening we set off for the grandparents to celebrate St. Patrick's Day early with corned beef and cabbage. 

With a fresh blanket of snow on the ground, we are starting off our Monday nice and slow....I am thankfully for snowy days especially these days. It gives me an excuse to move a little slower.
