A Relaxing but Productive Sunday

Caley and baby left yesterday around noon and for a while it felt empty and quiet in the house. She is lucky to have a baby who content and happy  much of the time. When he does fuss, you can find the reason and comfort him quickly.
He had visits with lots of my husband's side of the family including the great grandparents.
We took him snow shoeing.
We took him to lunch on Friday with my group of friends.  And now we keep posted with daily pictures and video chats and look forward to the next time. This morning, hubby and I went snowshoeing. I'm slowly building time and distance. It feels so good to be outside but I'm counting the days until I can get rid of the sling!
After lunch, I stitched the hem on a pair of cords for Gord, and stitched together the 2 1/2" square for a zippered bag.
Not my usual colors. They were requested by my daughter. Grey and beige. I've made a few of these bags and have had two gifted to me. They are very handy for small projects such as these socks that I've slowly been knitting. The yarn is six ply and they're knit on 3.5 needles so a little easier than the 4 ply I usually do.
I put together one more Trip Around the Road block. There are now 13. I need 20.
A batch of peanut butter oatmeal and banana muffins just came out of the oven and hubby is stirring a pot of hot chocolate. He just got in from x country skiing. I'm going to get myself a warm muffin and cup of hot chocolate.
