I knit a couple of hats! I actually knit them a while ago, but I was waiting until they landed in Yellowknife with their new owners before I posted anything. You see, one of them is an early birthday present and the other is a belated birthday present. Unfortunately, while I have a picture of […]

Today’s tree is courtesy Robin’s brother and his lovely significant other, who hosted our Christmas Eve festivities. It was a definite non-traditional fare this year, with the main dish being home-cooked Ribs. And as an added bonus: Robin with a baby! This is our newest niece, Darby. She’s almost 2 months old.
