Yay! It took almost all winter to get here but we finally got a substantial snow here in NC. Oh, snow had flirted with us a couple of times but this snow was the one we had been waiting for. You know the kind I’m talking about, where the whole world is muffled due to the thick fluffy cover of snowflakes. So beautiful! My youngest son and I went out that morning and walked down to the lake (cough, cough, really a big pond) that is near our house. Gosh, it was really gorgeous down there. There wasn’t anyone else out so we had the whole view to ourselves and it was blissful.
What else is going on ’round here? Well, let’s see. I have been working on an afghan for my youngest son for the last couple of weeks and have really been enjoying it. I was inspired by this post at Stix on the Beach and got to work on my own version of the crochet style she was using. It’s so relaxing to sit and crochet row after row of pretty colors and I find myself putting off other (important!) things to crochet instead. This is the blanket I’m working on for my son, just simple rows of single crochet.
Oh, and here is a picture of my favorite breakfast in the whole world right now, sunny-side-up egg and home-made hash browns. Cooking is not my strong suit but I have really mastered cooking the perfect egg, hash browns, and biscuits. If you’re interested I can share my recipes in another post soon. These hash browns are SO GOOD!!
This past weekend I got to stretch my photographer legs a little bit and take pictures of a friend of mine and her baby. It has been so long since I did it professionally but boy was it fun! We got some really adorable photos and she’s a really happy little thing, too. Here is one of my faves that we captured. Isn’t she adorable?!
Well, I hope all has been wonderful in your world lately and that Spring is just around the corner for all of us! I think we’re all ready for some warm temps and sunshine now!
