Day Forty Three

I am loving catching snowflakes with my camera. They are absolutely enchanting and make me long to purchase a lens that can capture their perfectly formed beauty. … but I won’t because that would be completely frivolous! And dessert today: Cheesecake! Devil’s Food Cake in place of a crust, Chocolate Cheesecake and plain lemon-flavored Cheesecake…

Day Forty Two

Chocolate Waffle Sandwich for dinner… …and for dessert. What? It is awesome ice cream. Who cares if it’s 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside? It’s Kirkland’s best (according to my palate’s opinion), Caramel Almond Toffee Ice Cream.

Day Forty One

Today was the day for setting up my brother’s bedroom furniture. He always did have a thing for marbles…and I always did have a thing for…borrowing…them

Day Thirty Seven

  Waiting for breakfast. They seem to be looking at the world like, “What? Still snowing? Our worms are freezing over! Noooo!” They are really learning about teamwork in their efforts to stay warm!   I didn’t even know chickens could fly this high up, about eight feet high there.   We’ve named him Skitterson,…

Day Thirty Six

It finally snowed! We’ll leave the gate open for you… Made Pineapple Upside Down Cake, which is always a fun baking project. Something about layering cake batter over pineapple over melted brown sugar is very satisfying! Serving it with whipped cream was even more pleasurable, alas there are no pictures to show for that!

Day Thirty Five
