Five on Friday

Joining in to celebrate five things
that are currently making me happy!
We had snow!! 
Just a little less than an inch...but enough to run and play in.
Just enough to close work for the day.
To enjoy pj-lounging and crochet and hot chocolate.

Three blankets.  So close to finishing them.
Have I ever told you how much I love granny square blankets?

Art Journaling...  something I have done since High School. 
I have spent many hours this week just doodling and thinking
and remembering and dreaming.
Such a great way for me to pass a few hours!

Saw this idea on Pinterest... 
2 copies of a few favorite blanket, 2 pillar candles,
some Modge Podge and voila...

Getting to spend an afternoon with this one...
Just me and him.
No distractions, except for the ducks!
