We can preorder the Harry Potter book 7!

I seem to be blessed with good books lately! First I stumble across Juliet Marillier's books--and find that not only has she written one very long series of great books, but she has several books already published and she's working on more! Then I get news that I can pre-order Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows--though I have to wait until July 21st to read it. Life is good. Hannah and I read Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince the summer she was born. It arrived the day after she was due (but she was already 6 weeks old at that point!).
Also, I found this delightful blog and it contains pages of a beautiful baby dancing around with the most amazing hand-made toys. So last night after work, I hauled my sewing machine out of the basement. We're making toys today!
I've made some progress on Anne's pin--but obviously didn't get it done in a week as I had hoped! Oh well--that's the way it goes. Hannah caught a cold (she's better now), work is super busy (Spin-Off goes to press on Valentine's Day--how romantic!), and it keeps snowing all the time--making my commuting hours longer. It is beautiful, though, the winter landscape.
I better go--Hannah's unloading my framing drawer in my office, bringing me one frame at a time.

This is going to be lovely and if it isn't finished, I know it will be. Our babes come first anyway--and spin off! Get our little sweetie well and I was chipping away at the Andes Way glacier forming at the end of the driveway today! See me smiling! ;-)

Hi Mary,
Thank you! All my neighbors on the west side of the street have been chipping away at the ice (Glaciers are a good term) that have formed on their side of the street. Our side isn't nearly as bad. And you should see the glee in Kelly's face ever since his brother gave him the snowblower that was languishing in their garage! It cut down shoveling time from 4 hours to 30 minutes and this winter, that's significant.

Amy, you need to write a new entry!
