Even further on the west coast (or the left coast as we affectionately call it! ), hello from Vancouver Island!

I am also a stay at home mom to two little boys...well not so little anymore, they are 4 and 6 and time flies!

Good Morning Knitqueen! Love your name.

Being a stay at home mom rocks. What is your favorite part of it? Mine is planning and doing activities with my dds. Anything from going on a hike and collecting rocks to baking... you name it.

Hi from Alberta!
Am I the only one currently hailing from Alberta? I'm in Athabasca, which is a small town about an hour and a half north of Edmonton. I'm a piano teacher and a mom to twin girls who will be five in March. And boy am I looking forward to spring!

Hello from Calgary! I'm also a SoCal transplant! I've been here for about 2 years now. I'm starting to get used to the cold, but not the snow. We don't get 'pretty' snow here. Once the morning rush has died down, all we have left is dirty, filthy, slushy yucky, snow. I never expected winter would be so filthy! I'm looking forward to spring, when I can go work in my garden . Of course I get pretty dirty after gardening too, but at least I'm warm LOL. And for now I have my knitting to keep me busy!

Beware Janiegirl, in Alberta there is another season before spring, called 'BROWN'. The snow melts and/or evaporates, it is dry and still cold and WINDY. It happens mid-March-about end of April.

Janiegirl, I know what you mean about dirty snow! It's really pretty first thing in the morning, but by the time the snowplows have been out, it just looks grimy... Ha ha... Fellow Albertan!
