this and that

 A quiet Saturday here, highlighted by a visit from this little man--

Even though he doesn't look awfully excited about the whole situation!  He doesn't even know that there are Easter baskets awaiting his attention.  Look at the size of that cheek, no question that he is getting enough to eat.  He reminds me of the chubby cheeks that his momma had.

While Ian is having a snoozefest, Brita and I are cooking up some ginger cookies.  This is a good recipe that I got from another website.  They turn out nice and soft.

Here's a funny and surprising bit of trivia for you.  This whole experience of blogging and the internet has some pretty unexpected happenings.  I have learned to post a few videos here and they also are on YouTube.  It's really very easy to have my own YouTube "channel" and put whatever I want up there. Some are viewable by anyone with a keyboard, others are restricted by my own choice.  Last June I put up a little tutorial about a prairie point pillow.  Over the last couple months there has been a surge of interest in this video, which has resulted in over 39,000 views!  I'm not sure how that happens, but I guess it pops up higher in suggested videos when more views are logged in.  It's been kind of interesting to watch, and makes me wonder about who all those people are!!  

One more precious parting shot---

I'll have to check out your youtube videos. Those pictures of Ian are precious. I want to hold him!

Jan, since Ian is not planning any big trips yet, you better get yourself out here, and I'll bet you will get to hold him! We can schedule several holding sessions at your earliest convenience.
