Snow day, Crock pot, cookies, sewing.

 
It's been a very busy time in the last couple weeks. I'm safely home but it's that time of year with lots to do. It's a snow day today, so I've spent a very nice day in domestic endeavours.  
   
 
First tea and a quick sketch of a new pottery vase given to me and made by my friend Ginette Arseneau.  
Sketch
     
 I love my fresh holly in it.
 
     We are having a snow day. It started yesterday. This was my front step at dusk.  
     And the back deck.  
     
 View this afternoon through my sewing room window.
 
 
 
  First thing this morning I put something in the crock pot.
Squash, sausage, Brussels sprouts, onion, garlic, cranberries, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, water, seasoning.
i mixed up a batch of dough for pistachio thumbprints, recipe found on Pinterest. I managed a wee bit of stitching on the runner.
I think I'd like to add a little sparkle.
    The roads are cleared. A little while ago I went for a short walk. The sky is such a soft grey, turning pink at the horizon and there are big fluffy snowflakes floating down. It's beautiful!

Glad you are home safe and sound Holly. I bet you are missing that beautiful baby.

A wonderful way to spend a snow day.
