It's warming up a little bit here today. 32F outside right now so hopefully we'll have a bit of snow melting today. I delivered some mittens to the school this morning and slipped on the ice outside of the school. I caught myself before I hit the ground but twisted my back in the process. It's always something isn't it?
Yesterday this pretty little calendar arrived in my mailbox. What a nice surprise. It's from Becky at GrandmaBeckyL over on my sidebar. She took all of the photos and made the calendar herself. Thank you so much Becky. My guess is that they were taken at the tulip farm near Portland, OR last summer. Am I right? I love the photos.
So colorful and here is yet another one. The truck is perfect!
Here is the colorful pile of mittens that I took to the school this morning. 40 pair. I'm happy with the progress. Most days I made 2 pair, some days 3 and a couple of days none were made because of other commitments. I'm going to continue to make them and they're going to let me know if they need more for this year or if I'm just building up the stockpile for next winter. My goal is to make at least 2 pair a week all year long so I don't hit this crunch next winter. Then, as soon as the weather starts cooling in the late fall, I can take them to the school so every 1st grader has a pair of warm mittens.
And a ta-dah! I got my hair cut yesterday! What do you think? She cut about 16 inches off! I'm still a bit in shock and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Is it too short? Too long? What do you think? I value your opinion very much. Should I grow it a little longer again? Get it cut more? Gosh, when I've had it long for such a long time it looks and feels very strange to me. I detest messing with my hair which is part of the reason I kept it long. It was easy to care for. I keep trying to push it over my shoulders and there isn't anything there!!!!
I think I'm going to put some ice on my back and see if it feels better. I hope you're all having a wonderful week, getting back to "normal". Whatever that may be for you.
