Hello friends. How are all of you doing on this Monday, the second day of February? I am doing fine and just want to thank all of you dear folks for leaving such nice comments on my last postings. It is good to be made to feel good about oneself. It is good to have followers and count you all as my friends. I am sharing another afghan/blanket I made the month of December. It is a large granny square as all of you can see, but designed like the log cabin block called Court House Steps. It started out as another stash buster but I ended up buying more yarn to be able to finish it. Needless to say I once again increased the size of my stash. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever use up all of my worsted weight yarn.
My brother Ralph has a birthday this Friday so I think I will be giving this one to him.
My baby brother Steve has a birthday tomorrow. It has been over 10 years since I have heard anything from him. When does life get so busy that a person doesn't even have time for a simple "Hi, how ya doing?"
Sounds a bit mean I know, but I'm thinking of sending him an envelope with a self-addressed envelope (to me) with a page of questions asking him how he is doing. I should make it multiple choice since he is so busy and all he would have to do is circle A,B,C, or D (none of the above). I'm still debating about that one.
This snow started late Saturday night. It continued all day Sunday and I did manage to go out with the snow blower and clear the drive. You can see the snow piled on both sides of the driveway from the other day.
For all of you wishing for snow I have plenty right here, over an acre of it.
It is beautiful when it is fresh and new. The air is crisp and clean.
There is way over a foot on the decks. The pic above is the way I go out to fill the bird feeders. I did that too. They depend on me. We have always provided them with suet, sunflowers and a mixed batch of cracked corn and wild seed. They love it. They wait for me to fill the feeders. Did you know they eat snow? I have seen them do it. Oh how smart these little creatures. Winter is hard on them, but God provides for them. I help.
It took me 2 hours to clean the driveway, sidewalk, steps and porch. By then I was ready to come in and get some nice hot coffee. I forgot I had some instant hot chocolate too. I could fix that later.
The compost bin is covered with snow. The old one still needs dismantled, but that is a job for a warm day. I should have knocked the snow off of the deck rail. You can see the birds on the snow below the sunflower seed feeder, but the other feeders are hidden to the left of that, behind the snow laying on the deck rail.
Yes, it was still snowing when I snapped this pic from the back porch. I'm always glad to come into a nice warm house when the jobs are finished. Glad to come in and relax a bit with my yarn.
Hope all of you are staying warm.
Have a Blessed week ♥
