There has been a pink ring around this icy, waning moon the past couple of nights. The temperatures have plummeted to the minuses, as much as -30F with the winds., and waking to -20'sF without the winds...
Reason enough for extra blankets at night, more snuggling, and even afghan warmth while evening reading and knitting.
My dishclothes are looking pretty ragged, so I'm knitting and crocheting a couple of new ones out of cotton yarn. Beautiful stuff, making into lasting products.
Quite frankly, anything to keep my hands from becoming idle. Those ' itis ' brothers, Burt-itis and Arthur-itis seem to love this cold weather we are having. They kick right in and lock up the joints, knitting seems to help. So does warm dish water~~~
While I'm sitting, I've been skimming through the seed catalogs. Three of my favorites arrived today...it sure makes me yearn for green grass, black composted gardens ready for seed. Even Bill got excited to see them. He passed them to me saying, "Here ya go, these will warm you up." That's my guy!
Until spring does show it's beautiful head, I will have to be happy with the bright sun daring to shine on this ice cold day.
Thank God for a bit of sunshine.
Stay warm wherever you may be,
Grab another blanket because this arctic blast is not over yet~
Say your prayers and
