Snow and other Shenanigans!

As I look back at my last few posts, I see that I have some catching up to do, so here we go! Hold onto your hats or my Pretty Vortex might suck you in and send you spinning!

First up, did I tell you that we had a blizzard? Well, we did! We were nearly snowed under for two of the last 10 days...

We even had to cancel knit night...GASP! But, when the snow stopped falling, it made some pretty drifts... These look like whipped cream, just dripping off of a big slice of pumpkin pie! (And now I want pie...sigh!)

Despite the pretty, it was cold. Luckily, I have kitty lap-warmers and knitting!

Then, just as we were digging out of the snow, super-cold temperatures gripped us...I've never seen it so cold, and I've made it through roughly 37 winters in northeast Ohio! Negative 11, is that what he said? Fahrenheit? Really? Yes, really...with a wind chill of minus 36...yikes! Luckily, I have kitty lap-warmers and knitting!

Then, as the "polar vortex" was loosening it's grip, there was the gas shortage...and the water shortage...and now it's going to be like spring this weekend? The weather mavens predict 50F today...or higher! But, there will be rain, so there won't be much outside-to-enjoy-it time. Still, I have knitting!

And did I tell you about the birthday quilt? No? Hmmm...well, a girl's gotta have a little mystery here and there, so how about we save that for the next post! Besides, I believe that I've got some knitting to get to! (I am really excited to knit and wear this sweater...all I wanna do is knit this sweater!!!)

Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm...or cool...or dry...depending on what your weather is bringing you today! And don't forget the knitting - Knit in Good Health!


  1. Do you have THREE projects on needles at once? Shenanigans, indeed! I don't even know you anymore. :-D

      I don't understand what's happenning to me!

  2. This weather has been crazy! Glad you had your knitting to keep you busy (and warm!).
