turning in: indoors and inward

the weather has turned for good.  winter's chill has taken hold.  frost every morning, now we await the snow.  the weather has been a concern for me and my shooting each day.  but this weekend proved fruitful indoors.  turning inward looking at the simple things in a new way.  i casted on my new needles on friday and am on my way to a pretty brown scarf. ( i cannot thank diane enough for this. visiting her made me see i CAN do it and then when i came home she nudged me more to try.  it has even rekindled taylor's interest.  friday she and i sat together and knit on my bed.  i am really enjoying it SO much.)  kellen, casey, and i baked homemade sugar cookies together, and then ate them together.  a nice warm cookie with nice cold milk, mmmm comfort.  and we granted our little boy's wish to decorate a bit.  we strung lights outdoors and even a few strings inside.   the lights really make the house look beautiful.  it was a really nice family weekend.  we still ventured outdoors for a few walks,  but retreated to the comfort and warmth that is home. 

daydream road trippin' continues tomorrow with a west coast segment.  here i come andie and traci, and a few others i would stalk out there.   lol  

***AND, i am over HERE today chatting with leaca answering her "7 questions" . 
 so today come road trip with me to Alaska and meet a great lady friend, leaca through her blog and images
 thank you Leaca for inviting me!  :)
