Another cold and blustery week… but it's the middle of January in Vermont so its to be expected.( I just wish I could walk outside for more than 5 minutes without my nose ruining and having the snot freeze to my face) Yup, cold and busy. My Dad has come back to Vermont for a long visit (he moved to Michigan a few years ago… jerk) So while he is here I have been trying to put in as much time as possible with him all the while trying to do 8 million other things, I figured I owe him a little bit of my time (and lots of food) for helping to raise me…I am such a good daughter. (2 thumbs pointed at me with a big smirk..)
Let me take you through a few little happy highlights of my week.
The father and I went for a little hike with the pup on one of the milder temperature days… I drove to the trail, locked the car doors and off we went. After getting cold enough where I couldn't feel my hands-feet-face… we made our way back to the car. And I reached for the keys…and shuffled around in my pockets….and felt around in all my pockets again…. and again. Finally, I had to admit it, I dropped the keys. I got a little panicky (I was so cold and the car key is like 300 bucks to replace) but we did the only thing we could do. I stuff everything back in my pockets and off we went in search of the key. We got lucky, my dad found the key only a few minutes into the trail!!! Hooray! A happy hike with a happy ending.
Me and this little made some donuts, but screw the donuts(sweet potato with chocolate frosting).. look at the overalls! I decided a long time ago that when I have kids, they will be wearing nothing but overalls. Osh Gosh FOREVER!
FARM SHARE PICK UP!!! I was starting to go through veggie withdrawals.
Shadow hearts for Valentines Day! I love Valentines Day..… or maybe I just love hearts and pink. Either way, I am getting ready for some V-day recipes! This one is a definite go….
And beet dyed coconut sprinkles…I mean, talk about happy.
A late Christmas gift from Nicks mom. Every year she gives us s few of her hand thrown pieces….. love!!
And I gave the mister a haircut!!! He has been asking me for about 2 months now to cut it, but for some reason we just haven't gotten around to it. So finally this week it happened, and I can see his lovely face again!
How can you not be happy when your piece of ginger looks like a little man. (right after I took this picture I cut his legs off)
Flowers from our garden last summer….. Sunflowers are my favorite (these are teddy bear sunflowers)…. I love looking back at old picture, especially ones from opposite seasons, like flowers in winter or pictures of snow in summer. There like little glimpses of whats to come. I can not say it enough, I am so lucky to live in VT..we have excellent seasons so there is always something to look forward too!
So yeah, a few little happy happys…..
Hope you all have some happy happys too!
