Winter in March

Well, it finally happened.  We got real snow here in Virginia.  The kind you can sled in.  The kind that makes decent snowballs and is beautiful in the trees.  It started Sunday night and there was no school on Monday or Tuesday.  We spent most of the day on Monday shoveling, sledding, and playing.  A great time was had by all.  

On the knitting side of things, the recent cold snap made Ben ask for slipper socks.  Those are on the needles right now.  I am making them out of Cleckheaton Country 8-ply in tan and some hand dyed stuff that I got at Springwater Fiber Workshop the first or second time they went out of business.  They are nice and thick.  Should keep the toes nice and toasty!  

This weekend we decided that since it was snowing out, why not make some bread to go with our dinner.  The kiddo and I made some lovely herb focaccia bread shaped like a leaf.  As soon as it came out of the oven, he was ready to eat it!  It was pretty tasty!
