Yarn Along

I'm joining Ginny over at small things in her loves of reading and knitting.

Kicking around in my knitting bag this week are...

...a wee pair of mittens and our favorite volume of Childcraft. 

Bean and I read Rapunzel and Snow-White and Rose-Red out of this book almost every day...whether momma wants to or not...some things are just not up to me, you see

My Granny and Gramps had the whole Childcraft collection {15 in all} in their library and I remember curling up on the bumpy chenille bedspread and reading them many an afternoon. I don't know what happened to those books, but the year Bug was born, I tracked down a set on eBay and snatched them up. The first 3 volumes are usually with us in our travels. Sweet, sweet stories and poetry...well-known fairy tales, Aesop's fables, nursery rhymes. The science and history volumes are fun to look at, too, as they were published in 1954.

And here is the view outside our hotel room doors. We did indeed have 20 inches of snowfall {5" yesterday and 15" more last night - we're SW of Chicago.} The facility is a cluster of several buildings with paths and a courtyard connecting us all. In and amongst the buildings, the snow blows and twists around into pretty significant drifts.

We've had a quiet day, with Sweet Man working from here. I think I'm going to take the kiddos for a swim so he can actually get something accomplished. 

Hope you are warm and cozy and with the ones you love.
