Question 7

Last weeks topic, we wanted to know what is your favorite activity during the "Wintery" months. Please post what would be the perfect vacation during the Winter Season? Would rather you head to the beach, to escape all the cold weather or want to pack your ski's and head to the mountains. You tell us what vacation you prefer during the Winter Season.

I wouldn't want to escape the winter weather. I really like the snow and being able to curl up with my knitting! The only vacation I would like in the winter is to spend Christmas with my family. This is the one time of year that it is tough living so far from them.

Question 6

For many people, Winter is a time of cold weather and snow - and many fun outdoor activities that can only be enjoyed during those times! What's YOUR favorite activity in Winter, and is it even outdoors??

This year my favorite activity for the winter is baking. I have been having a lot of family come in from out of twon and cookies and coffee or tea or cider have been really nice to have when they come to visit. That and it makes the house smell so good! I have also been knitting more that the weather has cooled off. I haven't made mush progress on my sweater, but it's cozy having it puddled on my lap!

Question 5

I want you to make coffee talk with someone new either by blog post or email where available that you don't know and make a post on your blog about what you have learned about someone else other than your secret pal or the friends you already know. You can talk about projects they are working on, coffee they like to drink or this Wintery Season in your part of the world right now. Some of my best blogging friends I have gotten to know, were from just going down the roll and checking out blogs and leaving comment on their post. So, that is it. Go, fix you a hot cup of coffee and find you someone to chat with.

I visited Melissa B. just by chance. She sounds very nice! I got a kick out of the fact that she got hooked on coffee in a Starbucks. Makes my seattle-bred-heart happy! We seem to have a bit in common: both being sahms and have younger and multiple children. Her Calorimetry is really pretty! I wish the one I made last Christmas came out that well! :P And I do have to say that a white chocolate peppermint mocha makes my mouth water!
Also, for Melissa, if you read this, I hope your foot is all better! That looked really painful.

Silliness and Procrastination

You Are a Gingerbread House
A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.
What Holiday Food Are You?

I couldn't help doing this quiz! It was on Lara's blog a few posts ago and I got a kick out of it! lol :P

As for knitting...I have been procrastinating on my shrug. The ribbed edging is killing me. It is taking forever! It's almost done, but 250+ stitches per row makes is stretch into eternity even when you only have 5 or 6 rows left! Okay, enough whining. Back to knitting!

P.S. Go to food network and make their Pistachio Biscotti. I used pecans instead and they turned out fabulous. Happy Holidays!
