I know, I know...everybody has snow and cold...

Ok, so it starts raining, then freezing drizzling. A little while later it turns into sleet, and eventually snow. They had been predicting 2 to 4, 3 to 6, and then 4 to 8, finally: 10 to 13. I was, like, glued to the intellicast radar screen...After a while it did not matter anymore. We had gotten the groceries my Mom needed (she does not go out in bad weather) so we were snug.

I have this theory [probably borrowed it from somebody's Grandma] that for every snow bird at the feeder, there will be an inch of snow. It has worked...pretty accurately, for over a decade...so
I figured we would get the higher number predicted...see?...



All these are snow birds or juncos...Now...whaddaya think?

Then it turned cold...


My DH brought me these from his 'greenhouse' in the garage, where he keeps the fig 'trees', the messy asparragus fern, and the geraniums. Lovely...pink and white...makes the foot [and more] of snow and the sub zero wind chills, not so bad.
Being all snug indoors, and not venturing out, except for...well, actually nothing...I got some projects finished. Here is one for a pink 2c.

This one is the trophy of the next completed project.

Now DH will wear it...bobtailed, so to speak.

Made this with several weights of yarn bits, just because...


Today it was suppossed to be warm, {high temp made it to 25F, yea!} so I found and old can in the back of the cupboard, from last year. It had 3 servings left, so I had one.

Also today, I got my KnitPicks catalogue.

I started a pair of socks, using Cat Bordhi's 'different type' of sock.


Last weekend, DH helped me clean out the clutter in my knitting room, and placed the ice cream container shelves where I wanted them...thank you Baskin-Robbins.


By the way...we had 9 inches, then 4 inches, then 5 inches...although some has sublimated in the sunshine. We had not been above 25F yet...good bye stubborn bugs, and lawn cootties...
I'll leave you with this:

"And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it." Isa 40:5
In His hands, ^__^

Ooh, looks so cold. I can't imagine being snowed in like that but at least it gives you an opportunity to get some things done (I could handle that!).

Hi Jules! I don't mind the snow and cold weather, I really like it. Wish I could store it for next August when there might be days of 95F with 95% humidity--that I don't like.
Congratulations on your new book. ^__^
