So, the Official Groundhog saw his shadow and thus predicted 6 more weeks of winter. I decided to celebrate this lovely animal holiday by first making groundhog cookies. They are gluten free...it was challenging to figure out how to manage cutting them out, but I used the freezer to help them keep shape after rolling the dough.
Then I went to the zoo, where the giraffe not only had her baby alongside, but a special shadow of her own:
The zebras were surprisingly close to the fence:
Some friends came over for music. We had groundhog cookies and groundhog gravy, which is chocolate tapioca pudding, and we sang the Groundhog Song.
Lastly here is a healing cloth I made for an artist friend with a serious hand injury. Jude had a post a while ago about cloths in windows, which reminded me to consider color from front and back: the bottom picture here is how the cloth looks with light coming through from behind:
