Ross has his first snow day today. There isn't any snow outside. It is all ice. Tiny little ice pellets. Ice melted and refrozen onto the roads. Dangerous stuff. That's what we get here in Texas. Ice--not snow. I'm sure Ross will be super productive on his extra day off--playing video games and such. I'm so glad I went to the grocery store yesterday.

Bailey was sitting in my lap when Ross brought this in from outside. She sniffed it, but was disinterested.
I am very interested in cypto-Jews or conversos. I'm convinced that I have Sephardic, converso background. Hernandez is a Sephardic surname and listed amongst surnames of those forced to convert by the Inquisition.
I really connected with what one of the crypto-Jews said in the book "A Jewish soul is a Jewish soul. When you have it, you know." My sentiments exactly, and that's basically what I told the bet-din at my conversion.

I finally finished this Rosie the Riveter headband that I started last May. Like all my projects it was slow to start. I had problems and had to rip one section out at least twice. When I picked it back up this week it went fairly smoothly and I was able to finish it right away.
Woohoo. Another project actually finished. I'm about to start a huge one.

Today marks our 13th wedding anniversary, which is apparently the lace anniversary.
twisted prong incident in May 2011.
Tonight we went out to eat at a restaurant called Shabu. We didn't have hot pot. Instead we had steamed dumplings, Mongolian lamb, and Rib Eye chow fun. It was all yummy and warm in our tummies. It is around 32F outside.
