Brrrr....

I've had a wildly busy week here, hence the lack of posts. Oh wait...every week there is a lack of posts, ha ha. Anyway, I spent this week running to appointments, work meetings, shopping (for a new mattress, yay!), doing some Xmas decorating, etc, etc, and I'm beat. I'd say thank goodness for the weekend, but it's going to be just as bad (more on that next post).

Winter has rapidly descended on my little corner of the world. First, some freezing cold temps:Then, a pretty snowfall (I think we've only had about 4 or 5 inches total, but it's blowing around and drifting due to very high winds today):The lake is starting to freeze over. If these temps keep up, and there is every indication that they will, the lake should be hard frozen within a week. I did have time to do some knitting amidst all the busy-ness and now have both cardigan fronts completed. I ended up frogging maybe two-thirds to three-quarters of that one I showed in the last post, but they are really quite speedy to knit up. It only took me a week to re-knit what I had ripped. Well, that's speedy for me anyway, considering I only knit maybe an hour or two a night. This weekend I should be able to start the first sleeve; we'll see how far I can get.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Yes, those are GORGEOUS! Looks VERY cold! =][ shiver

I've always wanted to be near a lake when it freezes to hear the sounds it makes (or unfreezes)

Some of the best money we ever spent was on a decent mattress--good for you!man, those pics look like it's beyond handknit cold--they're survival freezing. Got the skates ready?

My gosh, your nature shots are absolutely beautiful, they're really artsy indeed! I'm dreaming of a winter wonderland by now - it's gotten a tad colder over here, no spring temperatures anymore, but there's no snow in sight - what a shame ;(
Stay warm!

Love your winter pictures! I'm in a serious winter deficit here in SoCal, where they issue a Severe Weather Alert if they expect 1/4" of rain! You're reminding me of why I want to move back "home" again!
