LoVE iS FaMiLy

Time has gotten away from me, as I realize that I have not posted anything for the month of February - and how did it get to be mid-Feb., already?

We have been keeping busy with an array of activities, nothing "over the top," just wholesome, content, fun! Everything from homemade pizza parties, sledding, xc skiing, making ice cream, ice skating, board games & movies in the family room and cooking with my daughter.

I took on the attitude, a few years ago, to embrace what winter has to offer - the chance to slow down a bit, enjoy the coziness of our home but also enjoy the outdoor activities of winter. We have had so many bitter, cold days and few sunny, winter days. I'm hoping that the next two weeks hold much sunshine, as well as snow covered grounds. It's much nicer for sledding.

Something that I have not started = scrapbooking. I wanted to dive into pictures, paper & stickers, this winter..and as of now, I have not started. I did, however; find myself an AWESOME, antique, free workstation! This beast came from an old, auto garage. See the before & after pics. We still need to cap the ends in moulding & add a piece of plate glass to the top. My hubby is going to cut out two boards, underneath, so that a comfy stool will fit, nicely. Hopefully, within the next two days, this great find will be sitting in the craft room.

I'm keeping up with Project 365! At the end of one year, I will have the project made into a photo book - fun!

Have a nice Valentine's Day, everyone!

I admire your mindset of enjoying winter as a time to enjoy home and hearth *and* outdoor activities. I haven't managed to fold in winter activities since having so many challenging experiences skiing (nordic and alpine) and snowshoeing. It looks your family is enjoying the winter quite well! :)
