Snow Day

Last night brought the first snow of the new year - hurray! I do love a good snowfall.

Light, soft snow about 3-4 inches deep made for slow going but the peaceful beauty was plenty reward for the effort (that plus knowing I would enjoy an extra piece of chocolate later). 

The very early morning light wasn't the best for photography, but I did take a few shots.

I usually avoid the 'zoom' feature on the Canon point-and-shoot camera that I take along on my runs, but it came in handy when I spotted this little guy and was afraid I'd startle him if I got any closer.

This kind of weather definitely calls for lots of warm woollies of which I am knitting plenty! Mainly I'm cranking out cowls, fingerless mitts and hats, but also dabbling with a few other things including a submission for publication. What are you working on? 

I hope you had a joyful and safe new year's celebration. Can it really be the new year already? I wish you peace, blessings and much happy stitching in 2015, may this be your best year ever!

Happy New Year

  3. Lovely cardinal photo! My cardinal pair is much to shy, all I ever get is pictures of chickadees.
