more snow

February 11, 2019

the weather outside is frightful!

this morning

someone had left me a beautiful pattern at the front door

it is almost worth stitching

when I started shoveling the paths

the handle on my old snow shovel broke

and I walked 45 minutes in the wind and snow to the hardware store to get a new one

bet the handle on this rather inefficient, plastic one won’t last 40 years!

inside, the Gerbera is blooming

the Christmas puzzle is finished

Peter Pan Map of Kensington Gardens –  enjoyable and challenging

and now, while the blizzard continues outside

I’m settling down by the fire with a new Kate Morton mystery

    Your old shovel reminds me of My Grandfather’s Axe: I have my grandfather’s axe. My father replaced the head, and I’ve replaced the handle twice, but it’s still as good as new… What a pity you needed to buy a cheap, flimsy plastic replacement. I like your plans for the rest of the day, I must say.

      Kate – the old handle can be replaced, it just needs some tools I don’t have and I needed a shovel immediately. One of my sons will fix it later. It is heartwarming to pass tools down through the family, I still use my dad’s hammer.

    Your storm will be coming to us tonight, with 12-18 inches–I hope our shovels don’t break!

      Kerry – you must be getting the storm that is hitting Toronto, we’re not sharing ours! Stay safe and warm. Hopefully Spring is on the way.

    Stay warm. Perfect weather to spin also.

      Thanks Barb – even I can only spin so much, EVERY evening. And the stash is already out of control, more than I will use in my lifetime.

    The footprints are like cuneiform, or runes…I am sure they are telling a story!

      Kjerstin – and now the patterns have changed, the snow is so deep the chickadees are dragging their tails in the snow making pathways. I’ve already filled the feeder 3 times, think I’m feeding half the birds in Victoria. They can’t eat the suet, it’s frozen solid.
