First Snow Day of the New Year
Very heavy snowfall overnight in the garden.
Hydrangeas weighted down by the snow.
The Ilex berries look very pretty in the snow
the red shade just pops against the white.
You can see how deep it is on the deck.
I found this book in the wee little library on our street.
My walks were curtailed due to the icy conditions
so I busied myself in the house
attending to some chores then mixing it up with reading and my knitting project.
Many cups of tea were sipped.
A Doocot Scottish design available on Ravelry.
Are you familiar with Ravelry?
It's an amazing site for knit and crochet patterns and tips a very helpful community of crafters are able to network and share their projects.
Wool sweater in the making...
learning some new techniques and loving this yarn.
This wooden maul is coming in handy as a yarn holder.
Many women in the knitting group that I belong to
use crafted wooden bowls
which have a hole in the side for their yarn to slip through...
it helps the skein from getting all tangled up.
Have you started any new projects?
The weather has improved and we are back to our usual rain days.
So I am able to get outdoors again for my walks.
Very grateful to be able to get some fresh air and exercise.
"Give yourself a gift of five minutes of contemplation
in awe of everything you see around you.
Go outside and turn your attention to the many miracles around you.
This five-minute-a-day regimen of appreciation and gratitude will help you to focus your life in awe."
