Looking like spring out here! (Full disclosure, this photo is from our last snow fall a couple weeks ago, there is too much snow blowing around to take a nice photo this morning). 
 …but I have to say, a day at home sewing, slow roast in the crock pot, and a game of rummy with friends later, there is nothing I want more than a snow day!

winter is... back?

We do our best to stay warm: Apple, sleepy, in front of the heater. I’d be tired too with all that hot air blowing on me. Lucky for me (or, my productivity) Lilleputt is pretty drafty.  Just got in from a brisk walk and they are forecasting snow! I hope we get a couple more snow falls… it’s going to be so hard to stay inside hemming tea towels with the beach right down the street!

Oh, update on the chocolate cheesecake. I didn’t get a photo of it finished, but don’t worry. It was so good, I’m making it again Wednesday when we have other (new) friends over for dinner.  So good doesn’t quite do it justice. Decadent, divine… the texture was fantastic. I’ve never made anything like it before.

I think this is the first time in years that I’ve been excited about winter. In fact, I can’t remember the last time. It certainly wasn’t in New York, where winter is grey, wet and slushy. (Except for last years blizzard that shut down the city for days. That was fun). But walking through yesterday’s snow, with the streets white and empty, and the smell of a wood burning stove, got my heart fluttering. In spite of my Scandinavian blood, and growing up in New England, I am always cold. So who would have thought moving North would have made me enjoy the winter more. Go figure. …Though I guess we’ll see if that lasts through March!
