Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday topic for 1/28 is 10 Things You Like About Winter.

1)  Snow Days!  Either early work dismissals (though I worry till I hit the driveway) and full Snow Days when work closes.
2)  Wearing handknit scarves and hats
3)  For me, wanting to stay in more and just knit and read.
4)  When I don't have to drive in it, I do enjoy watching it snow.
5)  Weather Channel and the news - enjoy watching them get all hyped up over the weather.
6)  Kitties want to cuddle more.
7)  Wearing my winter clothes, handknit and store bought.
8)  Boots
9)  Using my electric fake fireplace, so nice and warm.
10)  Hot Tea - I tend to drink it more in winter.

Ten on Tuesday

I have no pictures to go with this week's Ten on Tuesday topic so I have resorted to a cute sheep from Rhinebeck 2013.

Your Ten on Tuesday topic for 1/21 is 10 Favorite Breakfast Foods.  Yum breakfast foods, even good for dinner.

1)  Cheerios - this is my weekday and Saturday breakfast.
2)  Pancakes - this is our Sunday Breakfast.
3)  Belgian Waffles - these used to alternate Sunday's with the pancakes.
4)  French Toast - this I get when at knitting camp, alternating with pancakes.
5)  Scrambled Eggs - usually get these when on vacation at a hotel/motel or as dinner when I'm in the mood for them.
6)  Fried Eggs - I sometimes have these for lunch on a weekend.
7)   Eggs on Toast - sometimes these are dinner.
8)  Omelets - usually when eating breakfast out but sometimes for a weekend dinner.
9)  Bagels - usually vacation breakfast if I don't see anything else I want.
10)  Egg Sandwich/Wraps from Dunkin Donuts - these aren't always breakfast, sometimes lunch when traveling.

1)  Going wedding dress shopping with my niece.
2)  Knitting Camp
3)  Rhinebeck - went with two friends new to spinning and had a lot of fun.

5)  Hanging out knitting with my friend Kim and her 4 cute doggies.  My buddy Ernie is above.
6)  An ongoing moment but watching the scale go down every or almost every week.  Also donating all the too big clothing to charity and buying new clothes.

8)  Going with my sister on a Western CT Yarn Crawl.  Went to all new shops but one.  Was fun to see what is on the other side of the State.
