The yard critters were out and about recently. The bunnies came out from under the deck and nibbled on what little vegetation is growing. A robin popped into the photo and even a squirrel came by, although he was not around for the photo.

I was Scoutmaster for the cooking campout last weekend. Of course, we had snow! The boys had a great time and it was fun to try out some of their goodies. The older scouts made burgers at lunch and I had one. Very tasty and cooked on a griddle over an open fire. Jim stopped by during the day to help. The whole camp was turned into Hogwarts for the Cub event with the theme of Harry Potter. There were at least 500 Cub Scouts and their parents in camp for the event on Saturday. I was asked to be Madam Hooch and run the Quidditch game, but I had signed up for the campout. The Quidditch field was right beside our campsite and it was quite an event. Three of our younger Scouts were asked to be Golden Snitches (one was not enough!).
When I got home from camp, I was so tired and just slept as much as I could. The warm bed felt good! I developed a cough, which promptly turned into bronchitis. Ugh! It has be down for the count! Ben and his buddy, Paul, came home for Easter on Thursday night. I spent Friday in and out of the kitchen. I baked a batch of brown sugar cut-out cookies. MMMmmm...good!
I'm working on Quant. I decided to do a shop sample. I made one with some yarn Kathryn gave me. The project is nice. I just do not care for entrelac. Making a second headband is painful. Aranmor is going well. The first sleeve is coming along fine. (I would much rather work on it than the headband!).
