Counting blessings

Happy to be linking up with Susanne's Friday Fave Five!

1.  Today was the first day in a long time that I didn't have anything on my calendar.  It was snowy and cold all day. I stayed inside, worked on some photo albums and desk work, drank lots of coffee and basked in the company of a certain Springer Spaniel.  She seemed happy to have some companionship for the day.

2. I'm excited to find some new recipes to make with the new toys and cookbooks I got for Christmas.

3. In my last post, I wrote about the Winter Project Link Party at Thistlebear. (Here's my project,  called the Trellis Scarf and here's the link.)  I'm thankful to find other people who share a love for textiles and share their ideas.

4.  New glasses (haha)!!  Same prescription, but nice and crisp and scratch-free lenses.  Hello, world, I can see you!

5.  Best of all, seeing our new little grandson, Sawyer.  I wrote about his arrival here, and every time I see him, I fall in love with him all over again.

How was your week?  Happy weekend to all!

I absolutely just smiled so big seeing your new grandson! Ive been gone too long my friend! How wonderful! I wish we had snow here. Its a mild winter this year so far. I would like to have snow at least one time. I hope you have a great weekend!! Maybe I will start posting more than just on Mondays!!

Your #1 sounds so cozy. I was hoping to have a day like that (minus the snow :) ) this week, but no such luck. Maybe next week! That scarf looks so nice. I admire that talent. I need to make an eye appointment some time. Congratulations on your grandson! What a sweet photo!

That is an adorable photo of your grandson! Congratulations to you!
You did a great job on that lattice scarf.
I noticed you have one of the Pioneer Woman's cookbooks :)

You look lovely in your new glasses! I smile every time I look at that adorable picture of your new grandson! Aren't you the creative one with that scarf. Very nice! It's cold and an indoor kind of day here too. Been enjoying catching up on by very left behind blog reading.
