It has gotten windier and colder all day – the last time I looked it was 13 below and very windy from the northwest. I just checked the barn at 9:30 and all is well down there – almost cozy. The cold and snow paralyze Hazel and I’ve learned to just carry her back and forth to the barn. If she got out of my sight and collapsed she’d be dead before I could find her. Yes, I want to leave her in the house when I go to the barn but she is so bored and wants to go out so badly that I give in. Sigh. (TV says wind chill here is -41!)
I’ve spent time in the shop and I could plan projects out there for hours – laying out fabrics and deciding what to make – endless fun!!! Ha!
From my friend Laura – isn’t this just a perfect traditional quilt?
From Connie L :
I spend a lot of time watching the birds – today I had TWO male cardinals at the same time! And a hairy woodpecker, a red bellied woodpecker, a downy woodpecker and the usual blue jays, nuthatches, juncos, chickadees and a whole flock of sparrows and over a dozen squirrels at one time. I’ll need to go after more bird seed very soon!
Stay safe, everyone – this storm is very dangerous and will stay with us until the weekend. Did everyone read Fiona’s comment about skating in the Netherlands? It sounded just like Hans Brinker. I loved it!!!
