Happy Groundhog Day!

To be honest, why do we think that having 6 more weeks of winter (or not) is any kind of forecast? Around here, we're lucky if winter is over (ish) by the middle of April, which is 10 weeks away. Let's face it, the whole Groundhog Day thing is really just for fun. People do think up the oddest things to do to pass the time during the winter. Other odd activities might include ice fishing, polar bear dips and golf (yes, I have actually participated in a very snowy golf tournament). Anywho, Punxsutawny Phil says there's going to be an early spring.

To celebrate the day it seemed like a good idea to make banana bread. It was and there were two loaves; it goes fast in this house.

In other news, I've started a sweater. Actually it's well along, body done up to sleeves, one sleeve done, the other underway. More on it later when it looks more like a sweater.
