Ice Box Weather

The falls and pond, Frozen
Snow and icy cold temperatures hit the night of the previous post.
While it is sunny and bright out today it was 15 degrees last night and only up to a balmy 18 right now and falling fast.

Winter has settled in for a bit and I settled in last night with a Spenser detective novel by Robert Parker and made a pretty good dent in it before I closed my eyes to sleep.
Today I am finishing up the last rows on the huge afghan I am making for the Famous Anonymous Kid.
A trip to Michael's or AC Moore this week will enable me to buy some bright deep pink grosgrain ribbon to weave through the crochet at the edge between the main green and the white edging and with the addition of a pretty bow in one corner, the bedspread sized afghan will be done.
Then I begin a pink and white one for her little sister.
What are you doing?


  1. Hi Annie! The waterfall looks pretty all icy. That sounds like a wonderful afghan for the FAK! Bedspread sized is really a lot of work! The colors sound pretty. Jessica had Laura Ashley wallpaper that was pink and green when she was little. Hope you stay warm...this big chill hitting the midwest and east coast is really something! Hope you are well stocked with food and supplies! (((Hugz)))

  2. Hi Annie! We are currently just trying to keep warm like most right now. lol It's a big 15 degrees outside right now. Burrr. Love the picture! Keep warm and have a great Thursday. Hugs!

  3. The weather is absolutely awful here, the wind chill is horrid today. -40C with the windchill. Tonight I plan to hibernate at home and read my books!

  4. Ciao Annie, hope you are keeping warm. Temps went up a bit here, and it's about 33F, so not too cold. It's the biting cold wind that's annoying. The waterfall looks pretty all icy. :)
    Sweet dreams!

  5. We've ad loads of snow in the UK over the last week. And it's bitterly cold. Keep warm and safe
