More Snow/More Baking

This has been a winter of snow here in Michigan. When it snows, my thoughts turn to baking. I was working at the tax office on Saturday (Valentine's Day) and we were planning a little celebration for the office so Friday evening I baked cookies. The photo below was taken on Sunday afternoon to show the few remaining cookies from the ones I kept for home. The ones at the office were also enjoyed and devoured.

On Saturday I mixed up a batch of Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffin batter. On Sunday I baked a batch of muffins. Yummy!! Not much knitting last week or over the weekend, but I need to make a scarf as a little thank you gift for DH to take to Chicago when he returns there next weekend. I am off work today so perhaps some actual knitting photos soon.

Tax Season Has Taken Over My Life

I was reminded by DD Emily that it has been a long time since I have updated my blog. Who would have thought that she would "complain" since she is prominently featured in my most recent blog post.

Not too much to actually report or show since tax season has officially taken over my life. Things have been busy, which is good for work, but not good for knitting and other activities. I have a few small projects to show. Dishcloths and washcloths are always good mindless knitting and quick gratification during this time of year. Here are three I recently knitted.

Last week I mailed off a small package to Bundles of Love, with 4 knitted baby bibs and one baby washcloth. I have already received a lovely thank you note for these items. I will be knitting more for this organization. Check them out at http://www.bundlesoflove.org/
