Been Sort Of Cold Here

With such cold temps, I am not motivated to galavant around, these days. Instead, I thought I'd knit some more. This time of year just puts me in the mood. This one is for a friend's grand-daughter. Arrg, yes I guess I am getting to that age where some of my friends started off young and their daughters started off young....

I just love the matching hat. The flower colors match the buttons really well, but in this pic it is hard to tell.

Straight Off The Circular Needle!

Well, it's almost the end of the year! My where has it gone?

Had a nice day with not much to do, so I worked more on this set and finished it up! I am still trying to create the perfect sweater pattern that's easy to knit and alter in different ways for different styles. Then I am ready for the next round of baby showers!!!

White Christmas Eve

Here's a view from the porch, close up. It's the "path" to get around the backyard. You can see that there is still several inches!
Yippee!!! Even today's sunny day won't melt it all away.

Managed To Do It!

Yup! Managed to have a White Christmas, despite the freakishly warm weather and the sleeting rain. Really started to wonder last evening, when the rain wouldn't stop...

Took this picture this morning, while swamp stompin' with Hazel.

Day Before Christmas Eve

And the weather is frightful! Here's a screenshot of my desktop's dashboard. STILL the snow is plentiful outside.

As you can see, I follow towns and states of the people about whom I know and care for, so that I can see how their weather is doing!

I love the little white puffballs which indicate sleet... When it's the fog symbol, it is actually animated!

Thanks for looking!

Ice Storm Comin'

So they say... At least those in the northern part of NH could have one. Temperatures started off in the 40s, but drop each time I look. Currently we are at 36°.

Heard we have electric crews from several surrounding states. In the ice storm of 2008, we had crews from it seemed everywhere!!

Do I think we will have a major ice storm No, not really. At least not like a few years ago. The roads could get bad but I just don't think the trees will be a problem, causing power issues or property damage...

Good thing I bought all the Christmas gifts I can, so we don't have to venture out (or at least I don't think as of now.....)

We still have a lot of snow left. After the same basic weather tomorrow, I am curious to see how things look on Tuesday...
Will it be a white Christmas?

One Of My Tutorials Is Famous!

Hello!!!

A German web site saw my tutorial on my pet portrait painting of Stanley and asked if they could translate it into German for their readers. Seems their readers had requested it and found it to be very helpful!!! I am so flattered.

Here is a LINK to the site!

Snow-Capped

Hello!!!

Took this photo this morning. The snow from Tuesday still remains everywhere, but with our upcoming heatwave, I am sure these apples will lose their white caps!

Fun Live Cams!

Hello!!!

Pretty fun to watch the traffic and weather live, on my computer. Even though the highways are not generally busy like Boston roads, the site still lets me know how the rest of NH is fairing in stormy weather.

-5°F THIS MORNING!!!!!

And it dropped down to -9° by 7:45. Can't believe it can be that cold and not even be officially winter! Good news is in 4 days the days will start getting longer.

It's also the last row on the Advent Calendar! Only 8 days left until the Fat Man!

Another Storm's Comin!

This time, less than a foot. Frigid cold here (floor heater cranks out the heat, all day long) but later this week we will be seeing a burst of 38°f warmth on Friday! That will feel like Spring.

Until then, there is no better way to stay warm than with delicious homemade meatballs. With my recipe, there is both pork and hamburger and cooked on the top of the stove. I spent hours babysitting balls yesterday, but it's so worth it!

FIRST REALLY GOOD SNOW STORM

Hello!!!

Whatta fast storm that was. I am sort of disappointed most of it came while we were sleeping. I love watching it snow from my cozy corner.

HAVE YOU ANY WOOL?

I really love the smell of real wool. Once I wash it into felt and shape it into something, that delicious smell will be gone... I do so hope this makes a nice felted hat. I lost my favorite one (? Can't imagine where it went). This one matches my new coat. It just may make a nice replacement.

Right now it can be a skull cap, a peter pan, a nice plain rimmed hat... oh the possibilities.

COLD, COLD MORNING!

Hello!!!

The storm that hit the east coast yesterday, didn't really do much in New Hampshire.

This picture was taken early this morning, when it was 21°F. BRRRRRR!

FIRST REAL SNOW OF THE SEASON!

Isn't it beautiful?

Not even officially winter but it sure is pretty! Hope it stays for Christmas. When I was living in NJ, I can hardly remember a white Christmas. Now it's strange not to have a white one!

Cozy Cozy

Love these cooler nights with the wood stove and a good old movie to curl up to. With my daughter close by me, doing her homework... this is what memories are made of. Tonight was a very cozy and nice night.
