Weekend in Photos

Inspired by Misha's weekly "weekend in pictures" recaps, I'm going to try my best to make such recaps a regular occurrence around here. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Amazon delivered. More on baby names in a separate post.

George installed the new (floor-mounted!!) toilet in our master bath while I watched. We'll have to take it out in a few weeks when the drywall folks come by, but we're glad to have it for now. 

George worked really hard all weekend to install insulation in the new laundry room and prepare the bathroom for drywall. Our projects are moving along nicely - more on them in a separate post. 

Our first snow flakes of the winter added up. We received about 2-4" most places.

The dusting of snow is really beautiful. I especially like this view out of our new office window.

Of course, the squirrels came by for their Sunday morning treat of sunflower seeds.

I took my Subaru Legacy out for its first drive in the snow. (This photo was taken early in the day, before the bulk of the snow fell.) A friend told me that I wouldn't know just how much I loved my Subaru until I took it out in the snow, and she was right. I don't know if I'll ever have a non-AWD vehicle again. 

I finally assembled this trivet/cork board from the kit that our friends gave us for Christmas last year. I'm not sure why I waited so long because it wasn't difficult, didn't take long, and looks pretty great when it's done. Can you spot our favorite wineries on the corks? 

Blue skies showed up on Sunday afternoon, creating a breathtaking and rare scene with the beautiful fresh snow.

I made this Thai soup for Sunday dinner, paired with these spring rolls (which we ate too quickly to photograph). George usually does the Asian cooking in our house, so it was fun to mix things up. Both recipes came from Pinterest. George liked them both, so I told him that he's not allowed to complain about me spending time on Pinterest. :-)
