Well the snow is back in full force, I managed to brave the roads to get Tilly to the bus stop this morning and when I got back the outside temperature was reading -11.5ºC
All this enforced hibernation has not pleased the chickens or Dave but I've been happy lighting the fire and getting down to some serious spinning.
I've been surrounded by clouds of fluffy wool, some deep red/rust cheviot, pale muted colours that remind me of a forest floor and some bright yellow/orange corridale as a brief nod to the sun.
I have also been in front of the PC trying to master the art of Link Love (or is it Love Link)? I really need to remember what its actually called if I have any hope of doing it without making a complete fool of myself. It's a great idea where folks can share their fan page links with likeminded crafters and 'spread the word'. Need to find a similar system for this blog! ☺
Though the snow is cold and wet I tried (in a brief, more positive moment) to find five things about it that I liked, I managed the following:
1. It will kill germs and maybe limit the spread of the flu virus, swine or any other variety.
2. We are forced to spend more time at home in hibernation mode, less time travelling, shopping and generally being entertained, possibly making us more in tune with nature.
3. Think how much we will appreciate spring, the sight of green grass, a snowdrop, actually they're white so make that a daffodil.
5. nope, completely blank!
I called at the butchers yesterday and he did say that every week day this week has been like a Saturday for him, people were walking to his shop rather than driving to the supermarket, he said the snow had not only increased his trade but reminded him of the community life that used to be normal before everyone had a car and the supermarkets took over the world. . . . . so I suppose you could say that's number 4.
Well I'm heading back to getting my head in the clouds!
