I Love Winter, YES, I do!
There is lots of sewing/quilting in my winter world, and I am loving my latest project, as it is finally a quilt for my bed!! These are a few of the blocks I have done thus far.
This is what it looks like outside today....yes, another big storm. On the heels of my near-hypothermic experience last weekend, I am keeping busy as I pray the power does not go off again. Winds at 60+ mph right now.
It keeps on coming. A happy cocoon of cleaning, cooking, and blissful silence is keeping me very happy. A pork tenderloin is in the crock pot with a just-concocted marinade of brown sugar, soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic and sherry, as well as some sweet chili sauce. I'll share it tomorrow with LM and Kristi.
A little more intense and the driving snow makes it dark.
Winter also brings Valentine's Day and mine went over and abve to show his love this year. I had to share the card.....we do love donkeys, and I guess he just about lost control when he found this card..I tried several times to rotate this photo but it wouldn't stay rotated - stubborn as a donkey, I guess.
It is true love, no doubt. I am so blessed.
My Valentine also found this beautiful ring for me....put it round a candle (have them out in prep for a power failure). Two lovely starfish to go round my finger.
The groundhog told us we would only have two more weeks of winter and his time is about up. I can't really say I mind it though. We needed a good old-fashioned snowy spell, and our aquifer is surely breathing a deep sigh, or gulp, of relief.
Back to sewing, and looking forward to the Downton Abbey season finale tonight. So nice not to have to get up for work tomorrow, too. Happy Presidents' Day, and much love to all!
