St. Valentine’s

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Tomorrow is the still-new Family Day here in Ontario, so it’s a long weekend for us.  I can’t resist dropping some Emily Dickinson on a day like today…

The thought beneath so slight a film –

Is more distinctly seen –

As laces just reveal the surge –

Or Mists – the Apennine

Here’s how events are unfolding chez nous.  I thought my Friday night would only be about the Olympics… wrong!  Look what DH waltzed in with that evening:

He got full marks for the surprise!

On my end, after getting fed-up with cables & deadline knitting the other night, I punched some wool with a sharp needle for a bit…

This dish was part of SIL’s bridesmaid gift.  It’s by Paloma’s Nest, and usually holds my small knit knacks.

That’s the end of my needle-felting love but I’m also throwing in a couple of Jamaican seashells & rose quartz for good measure.  Since they’re both great for affairs of the heart.

Also on my end, I cracked open the Joy of Cooking & whipped up a batch of blueberry muffins this a.m.:

The 1½ cups of blueberries are just wicked!  I add grated cinnamon to mine.

Of course, it’s still winter here but I decided to reach for the backyard shots anyway:

I don’t want to bury the pic of my new book in this post, so that’s coming soon!
