IWSG Day, Words I've Invented, and Yet More Snow!

Welcome to the blog!

It’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group day!

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.   

February 3 question - Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?

The awesome co-hosts for the February 3 posting of the IWSG are Louise - Fundy Blue , Jennifer Lane, Mary Aalgaard, Patsy Collins at Womagwriter, and Nancy Gideon!

I am so happy to have made friends through the blogosphere! I celebrated many of them throughout the A to Z Blogging Challenge in 2017, one fellow blogger per day! It's awesome to see how many of us have kepy up our blogs for so many years.

I haven't quite met my ROW80 goals. I've been submitting short pieces here and there, hoping for a bite! Overall, though, I've been reading and knitting and baking. And we keep getting snow!

A Linus blanket, upon request, and Clementine Cake by Nigella Lawson!

Snow in the evening, no filter!

The river behind the house is rising... is the cake!

Starting a knitting project I've had for many years! I bought this kit ages ago, possibly in Kingston or Fredericton

Taking a break to bake Roman Honey Cake!

Finished one of the fingerless cuffs!

Two other things I've just thought of:

The Whisky Trench Riders are on Spotify!

Also, I thought it would be fun to show a list of words we've invented in our family:
Fussle: Loving on a pet, especially by ruffling fur with your fingers
Nekechuk: Satisfying stationery, including sticky notes
Çık: The magic that causes stuffed animals and dolss to become sentient
Foss: General contentment
Fish wrinkles: I invented this when I was a teen to be a replacement swear word. I still sometimes use it!
SipSip: Frodo the cat, the inspiration for Kedi
Shmuzz: Sam the cat, seen at the bottom of my knitting blog

Have you and your family invented any words?
