snowy saturday

Woke up to more snow. Actually to the sound of a neighbor spinning his wheels. I thought to myself, do I really want to get up and go to the gym? Nope!

Rather drab in the photo, but the snow is big and fluffy. Some color came yesterday…

dh grabbed the camera to capture this,
uyuh, outside in the snow in pjs

I came in and saw dh building a snowman. He finished it, came inside and then riled up the dogs… ‘girls! girls! what’s that out the window?’. Then he retreated to the shower, leaving crazy barking dogs. He closed the shade on the kitchen window, but Zuzu’s rather bright and she wandered into the other room and looked out the other window and set up yet another racket.

Zuzu’s still wandering around barking out the windows…making me nuts!

Look who learned to knit!
copper, alex, tina

My nephew, younger brother to the one that was here in October. They live out in Colorado. Jodee at The Fiber Exchange taught him to knit. Thanks Jodee! Great job Alex! I’m not sure what the yarn is, his mom says it came from Libby’s shop, it might be Odyssey merino.

Scarf update… I thought I’d try blocking the be-j out of it. And guess what? I didn’t even have to stretch it hard or anything, it grew like magic about 6 inches. Almost dry and ready to go. Sweater update… started in on shortening the sleeves on last year’s sweater.  dh is going outside just now to plant some treats in the snow goon, then we’ll let the girls out and watch what happens…..

    I want to see pictures of the snowman carnage!
    We’re getting a freezing rain mix right now, not the pretty fluffy snow you have…

    Pictures of Death of a Snowman, please! :)

    Although the forecast wasn’t for snow today, we appear to have some falling. Hmph.

    It amazes me how dim and blue photos are at this time of year — it doesn’t seem that dark to our eyes. It’s a wonder our cameras don’t get ADD.

    Nothing wrong with PJs and boots! A time-honored tradition.
    Yes, better have the camera batteries charged up for the snowman debacle-to-be. Inquiring minds want to know.
    Glad the scarf didn’t need major surgery! My side-to-side scarves always seem to end up longer than I think they’re going to, but linen stitch draws in so I’m sure that makes a difference.
    Snowflakes are blowing around in the air here — we had a few inches yesterday and now it’s just flurries, but the flakes are big and fluffy and catching the light wind, so they’re going sideways and around and even up. Reminds me of Charlie Brown; Lucy stating categorically that snow goes up.

    Just rain down here today (and temps up to 45!).

    I just love that picture of you in the snow in your nightie, too funny :)

    Way to go, Alex!

    Julie, Thanks for the comment you must be a very nice person.

    Lisa, Thankyou for putting me on your blog. My snowboard helmet hat is exquisite, but I am a skier the light side is on the skis.

    Oh, I, too, hope you have photos of the snowman carnage. Nightgown “au natural” is lovely, and your nephew did an *awesome* job on his hat!! Way to go!

    More snow predicted for tomorrrow – must be winter.
