Clearing blue sky,
A promise in bare branches.
In winter there are sunny days.
In adulthood, childhood can return.
So far, in the Northeast, we are having a wonderful winter. As you know, I live up north in ski country and the last few years have been lean ones for the ski mountains....but not this year! Last week alone we had 4 snow storms...wheee!
One of the things I love best about winter is the time inside. Time to work on things that get put aside on warm summer gardening days.
This weekend was an enjoyable one working on a few of the things that I have not had much time for lately. There was some soapmaking and gift wrapping..............and a little spinning.......
Such a patient girl she has been for she has been sadly neglected, during this busy autumn.
With winter now upon us, I know that she and I will be spending a lot more quality time together.
I managed to finish spinning and plying the first roving that went onto her bobbins and I am thrilled with how wonderful this wheel spins and plies. I think this might be the most consistent yarn I have had in a very long time. I am not sure if it was because I had the time to just sit and spin, or if the wheel made the difference.
Mariah's big wheel moves so effortlessly...:-)
........and of course, marshmallows roasting by an open fire.....
There truly is no better way to end a day than to light a fire and spend time with family. Hannah and Courtney snuggled with Maggie, Ken snuck in some reading and I worked on some Christmas knitting. With the wind howling and the fire crackling in the fireplace, it was the perfect ending to a very enjoyable weekend.
