Cold Snap Views

The warm weather of Christmas seems like a dream now.  We bottomed out at five degrees earlier this week.  The ground has been frozen for days and I bet the lake has a nice layer of ice on it right now.  Not that I am getting in a car to look at it any time soon.  It is snowing hard and the roads are white, so it's time to be home and make something yeasty.  I must admit that I am a little worried about Mike driving home in a couple days.  I'm kind of hoping the snow is ahead of schedule, for his sake, though he is suffering at 61° down in Florida right now.

I'm missing my camera card reader right now (and the card), so here are some scenes from our 12° play time.
We've been waking up to the most wonderful frosty designs on the windows.
Thimble time has been put on hold this Winter, until Laurel is ready.
We had a broken window in all this cold, so no more chancing it.
It wasn't from thimbles, but from a babywearing four year old.
So, a Waldorf doll broke my window.  Haha.
My dad had it fixed the same day!

This was our snow from the weekend.
It's laughable now, of course.
We are supposed to get a lot this week.
Depends on which gloom and doom forecast you choose.

Yesterday, the windows were frosted completely over!
These are storm windows, to clarify.
I never had them until we moved here.
It is much easier to fix an old-fashioned single-pane window,
so there are some perks to being outdated.

This was yesterday morning.
Ten degrees with the sun shining on the thermometer.
The frost was sparkly, but that is one for the memories.
Cameras are like that sometimes.

Willow and Roan are outside enjoying the deeper snow while Laurel naps. I am making garlic bread sticks for supper and I am so very, very hungry. It's going to be good!

I love these icy window pictures. It reminds me of Montana... or our old house here, where we had ancient single pane windows. It's getting pretty chilly here, too - only a tiny bit of snow, though. So far. ~ Stacey

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
