We have snow! Not a lot. Around 2-3 inches. We are being told this is not a normal winter for this area. I get the feeling that just about every state in the lower 48 has unusual winter weather except for Florida. I'm glad we did not end up in the ice storm. I have been through several ice storms and I am quite happy to miss the latest one. It's bad enough having ice on the inside of our windows every morning.
Yesterday, I spent the day watching big fat fluffy flakes float down from the sky while working on some quilt projects and drinking lots of hot tea.
I should get warmer gloves. My poor fingers were icy red by the time I finished each walk.
The cats were begging to go outside. We let them out and it did not take them long before their feet got cold and their bellies were filled with ice clumps. They did not stay out for very long.
|Hitch - I go with you?|
Of course, they forgot how they did not like the snow yesterday, so Dan took them out again today. Dusty and Squirrel were out for about five minutes before they begged to go back inside. Hitch decided to do a little more exploring before the cold got to him which surprised us. He doesn't like the cold and often begs to go inside if it is too cold outside. If it is a heatwave, Hitch will spend the day outside in the sun while I try to coax him into the shade so I don't get heat stroke.
|Dusty - What is this cold stuff?|
On The Cutting Board
What a great time to pull out that big bag of scraps and get some sewing done. Dusty thought he could help with my pile of scraps. Yea, he wasn't much help, other than adding more wrinkles and hiding some pieces. He did look cute sitting there.
I'm off to do some more scrappy blocks...
