Waiting for snow... Did I just say that?! Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm not really a winter girl. Actually, each cold season finds me slightly off guard, not ready inwardly or outwardly, and in need of making friends with the cold and snow all over again. Ah, but this year... I'm trying to greet winter with a new preparedness and welcoming spirit! Try being the BIG word. I needed some new boots for winters here in the far north. Dry, cozy feet ready for winter walkies... check. We actually had a tiny bit of snow-rain this past Friday. But it all washed away. So waiting for real snow.
For more warmth and a dash of happy color, I crocheted for myself this hat and cowl set... kind of cute, if I do say so. ;)
And we have his & hers drink bottles. These stainless steel things are great for taking along on a walk, and keep cold drinks cool up to 8 hours, and hot drinks warm up to 4 hours. (You can maybe guess which one is mine. ;) And don't you like my snow drifts?! This is a blanket our Charlie loved to snooze on...)
Hot chocolate, marshmallows, candles and fireplace ready for hunkering down when the snow comes. So, we're waiting and ready for winter...
While we wait... I will make Mondays my post day, while I get back in the saddle here. And THANK YOU, thank you, thank you for all the welcome back comments, emails and all around good cheer--WOW! You all give so much... I am blessed by your kindness!
