For Today: 5 January 2017
Happy New Year everyone!!! I didn’t expect to take the whole Christmas holiday off from blogging, but I guess when you add up the bronchitis (Ella), chest cold (me), Christmas, Christmas in Bowmanville, and Ella’s sleepover fun the blogging just fell to the bottom of the list.
Outside my window: sunny, snowy, and cold
The scene from yesterday. Colin has the snow all plowed in the yard now. But it sure looked pretty.
I am thinking: that the colds have decided to make a second run through the house. Ella’s cough is back and Colin’s throat is scratchy. Boo!
I am thankful: that Colin didn’t fall off any of the roofs he was shoveling yesterday. Also very glad we have the tractor for blowing all the snow. It would have been terrible if we had to shovel the snow on the ground too.
I am wearing: my purple dress with the tiered skirt and bare feet because the house is nice and warm.
I am creating: Ella needs a new scarf. She loves the moebius style (I’ve made it since she was a baby because it was nearly impossible for her to take off). The yarn I’m using doesn’t work for knitting that direction, so this time I’ll make it an infinity scarf.
I am reading or watching: not too much right now. Too tired. I’m home alone so I am getting to enjoy Holiday Inn.
I’m hoping: that we can all fight off this cold. We need to get back to school and everything else. We missed a lot of time in December because the student and teacher were wiped out with the cold the first time through. We don’t need to start the new year sick.
In the garden: snow over my knees!
In my kitchen: I should make some cookies today, but I don’t know if I will.

Daddy and I also got Ella all set up for her archery. She really loved it this summer at the SCA event. Daddy has her all set up in the yard already.
No bull’s eyes yet, but she’s good at hitting the target.
