Any means are good...

I don't have much for this yarn along. I've stitched some rows on my scarf, nothing worth showing off really! And I made another heart, white this time.
I tried the pattern Ginny had talked about but somehow it doesn't give anything looking like a heart....

But I have a book this time! That is worth writing of... I've actually found about it in this very yarn along. I thought I'd give it a shot., since I don't have the time to make dough everyday and don't have the place to store a frozen batch. The dough is sitting in my fridge, waiting to be shoved in the oven. We'll see what it gives!

And that will be what I have for the sewing bee tomorrow! Merrick went to bed at 9 pm, for 3h in a row! So it was a productive night. More pictures tomorrow!

It's snowing outdoor. It's the kind of crisp snow that comes with a wind that freeze your lungs with each breath, almost burning. The sun shines on the other side of this pure white clouds ceiling, coupled with said snow, makes everything white and shiny outdoor. So bright and hurting sensible eyes. And shutting us up inside. The felt temperature outdoor is -21°C (-6F I think) and it's just dangerous to wander outside with two babies. I long for a good walk where I come home with my back hurting. Sounds crazy but I do. I feel pretty helpless having to rely on Papa to drive us back and forth. But I can't really practice driving in all that snow, so we'll have to wait for Maman to have her driving licence! Because driving class here is around 1000$ now. At least I got my probation paper before the law that made the class obligatory passed. We couldn't have afford it!

So we're waiting inside for Papa to come home from his hour break of the day to taxi us to that sweet place where old ladies takes care of your babies while you rest (I love that non-lucrative organization). Meanwhile Merrick just woke up on my lap and Mariann's painting (Does every mom let her toddler paint everyday?) and asking for me to take picture....


  1. OOoo, that book looks wonderful! I'm a big fan of baking your own bread but lack the time to indulge in doing so.

    And what a lovely picture of your little ones. So sweet. :D

  2. That book is awesome! I borrowed it from the library and plan on purchasing it soon. Can't wait to hear how your bread comes out.

  3. I'm eager to hear about your bread! That is such a sweet picture of your cute kiddos!

  4. Ha! I just started baking my own bread this very week. First result is pretty good :)

    And girl does paint It's a must, if I dont "let" her do it, I hear about it A LOT. She loves it, not as much as play doh, but she does love painting.

  5. That book looks like a good read...I love when I make hem made bread, but really need to make the habit of actually getting it going on a regular basis...yes, my daughter would be thrilled topaint it is I try to let her craft creatively each day...

  6. I have that book, and it has very good bread tips.
    I think your little ones are just adorable!

  7. Salut, je suis bien contente de découvrir ton blog grâce à ton passage sur le mien! Je suis bien curieuse de savoir si tu fais l'école à la maison et si vous parlez anglais à la maison... Tu connais sans doute quelques connaissances à moi qui soit étaient à Rimouski, soit y sont encore! Au plaisir, Catherine et les fées
