Winter in Wisconsin

I have officially termed my period of ambiguity a "sabbatical." In other words, I am living with my parents and enjoying the life of an unemployed mooch. The sabbatical is only temporary: In July I will be returning to India to work at Woodstock. Until then, I plan to continue my slow-paced life. Here are a few things that have kept me busy:

-New Years in the north woods with snowshoeing, cozy fires, broomball, and great friends
-Weekly trips to Minneapolis for good food and good company
-Trying to deep clean/organize all of my possessions before I leave
-Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing
-Sewing, sewing, and more sewing
-A week in Marshall, MN with my brother Jon and nieces Josie (13), Grace (6), and Edie (2)
-Honing my skills at cross-word puzzles and bananagrams
-Wearing pajamas all day, every day

Snowshoeing around our property.

A sampling of the bags I've been making.

Making cookies with Grace (who was celebrating the 100th day of kindergarten with 100 bandaids stuck to her shirt). We look suspicious because we were trying to convince the rest of the family that cookie dough is disgusting.
Making (human) valentines with Grace, Edie, and some stickers.
