wonders


Friday morning, we woke up to this! It's been a few years since we've had snow in the mountains. Since we had cancelled our annual ski trip (due to the expense of bringing home the horse) naturally we were tickled pink to have our own little Tahoe right in the front yard.
I was so happy to have all my girls home with me to enjoy it: from l to r, Horsey Girl, P. #'s 1 and 2. They had the requisite snowball fights, attempted sledding down the newly cleared pasture hill, and of course there was this...
And since this is, after all, California, it didn't last too long. These are the wonders of memory, we will cherish these times forever. To add to the cozy sweetness I used the wonderful organic blueberries I found at Whole Foods to create this yumminess.

In knitting news, I have abandoned Green Wonkey for fear of emulating Michelle Kwan: giving up because I know I just can't do it. Or perhaps I'm afraid of doing the Lyndsey Jacobellis thing: trying to show off, and ultimately failing. The truth is, I'm woefully behind on the Knitting Olympics (evidenced by the lack of pictures here) and feeling the agony of impending defeat! Therefore I cast on for a pair of regular old socks that I MAYBE have a chance of finishing by the deadline...modifying the program, as they might say in figure skating...going for the double toe loop rather than the triple, I guess.
Maybe it's just the desire to be gentle with myself, in this tender space I call home.

I knew you'd abandon me in favor of snow. Dang, that seems soo cool though. The run was nice, at first it was raining SUPER hard when I drove there but then later rain stopped and even sun came out. I have to say, it was beautiful over there by your corner of the woods. Miss you.
