* It's bloody cold! Last night at 7pm it was 3 degrees. When I let the dogs out at 4am it was -8 and right now it is -3 and it is almost 8am. The big Newfie loves the snow, but I worry about his feet in this super cold weather so both dogs are in the house a lot more right now. And I bought a heat lamp to put in the chicken coop. I'm not sure if the ladies really needed it, but it makes me feel better knowing that it is there for them.
Happy Thursday. Stay warm.

It's Wednesday again and after a short hiatus, I'm joining Ginny and others for the weekly yarn along. It's all about the books and yarn as we share what we've been working on and reading. So...a few weeks back we went to Japan to visit my brother and his family. I decided to go yarn shopping to bring back something to remember our trip by. I did find some Noro, but I can buy that on my LYS so I passed on that. Bryan bought me this cute little fingerless mitt kit. You can't tell by the picture, but the back of mitt is an owl and it comes with the beads for the eyes. Did I ever stop to think that the pattern was in Japanese? Nope. I can figure it out up to the palm of the hand and after that I'm going to need a translator! Anyone?
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday.

The 52 Project
A portrait a week for a year.
This week- on the airplane from Denver to Tokyo. It was a 12 hour flight and she was a wonderful passenger. She watched two movies twice, slept an hour at the beginning and end of the flight and ate a lot of goldfish crackers.
**brought to you with the blogger app. Which I haven't really figured out how to use it yet.

UToday was spent in Kamakura. Kamakura was the capital of Japan in the late 12th century. We saw a lot of temples. I couldn't even begin to count the number of temples there are, but we barely scratched the surface.
While we were at the Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine today we saw the end of a Shinto wedding. This was the beginning of the next wedding. It was also a blessing day for 3,5, & 7 year old. They were adorable in their kimono, but I didn't feel comfortable taking pictures of kids.
Yesterday we went to a sushi place for dinner (not my favorite thing). I think being awake for over 24 hours with only cat naps finally caught up with us. C slept through the whole dinner, the car ride home and being carried in to the house. Unfortunately she was up at 2am and doesn't know how to whisper. She finally fell asleep again 3:30. I stayed up with her and slept in. I think we are now on Japan time. Which will make it all the more difficult on the return flight.
