A couple of weeks ago our town got 17.5 inches of snow. I think our entire state closed down for the day. Even the factory where my Shug works closed. I didn't leave the house for several days because he needed the only all wheel drive vehicle we have to get back and forth to work. So finally, after a few days, I ventured out.
One of the stops I made was to this strip mall. I thought I'd show you how high the mounds of snow are, from where they plowed the parking lot.
We have had more snow several times since this, so it's just snow upon snow upon snow upon snow.
I'm not complaining. No sirreee.....not at all...
Ok, I might have muttered a bit of complaints when I couldn't see around this stop sign to see if anyone was coming. (the other way does not have to stop) And yes the snow is pretty. But here's the deal.
I wish it would be more colorful!
I need color this time of year.
we have Spring,
Christmas which is very colorful and festive!
Then we have white....lots and lots of white. For months on end.
I did get a glimpse of this red out my studio window this morning,
but it only lasted about five minutes.
So I'm thinking, snow might be a bit more fun if it would come down in colors!
Like the color of this purple hyacinth that I bought at the grocery store the other day.
(I wish you could smell it!)
Which is the color I'm hoping these tulips will be! (my Mom's side of the family would probably place bets on the color of the snow!) I think colorful snow would make winters more FUN!
But since I'm stuck with the cold, white, stuff, here is what I'm doing to stay busy in our studio apartment.
Baking....which makes it awful hard to stick with my healthy eating plan. How do you do it? You resolute to eat healthy in the new year, but you crave comfort food?
Besides eating starch and sugar, I'm still stitching and crocheting for the Winter Woolen Workshop (February 22/23)
I made this bag, with lining, after two tries. I will get this pattern figured out sooner or later. My Shug said, "it isn't a watch" when I was trying to figure out what I cut wrong. Insinuating that it doesn't have to be perfect. Well, Mr. Shug....what if I said that about your 2x4's!
(love the lining too)Remember this bag?
PS -Come by Groovy Girl Yarn on Saturday between 11-4 and make a colorful cupcake pin cushion for only $5.00.
See ya soon,
