Winter Wonderland




Since I am hearing Icy pitpats on my roof, I figured I should blog before the electricity might go out and get myself back to the wonder of fibers and threads. This is a picture of my beloved Charley in the snow. It is actually a few years old but not much has changed especially today(sorry I don't have a current picture of Charley in the snow but it's cold and I'm not going out until I have to, neither is Charley).

I moved here from Long Island 5 years ago next month. When I moved my mother in law told me I should knit Charley a sweater. Now I know that Charley should knit me a sweater. My tiny little westie loves the snow. She rolls around in it, she chases it, she licks it, she just loves it. Myself I'm not quite so taken with it but it is lovely especially when it is falling and Charley is very lovely when she is rolling around in it.

Funny thing is we don't have a heck of a lot of snow where I live in upstate NY. The fronts either drop below us or fly above us on the geographical weather map and we just don't get all that much snow. But when we do we get a lot of snow and it stays most of the winter so I won't be seeing my green lawn very much. And amazingly enough they get more snow on Long Island but it really lasts so much less time. They get a heck of a lot more weather patterns down there.

It appears at the moment we are getting freezing rain or sleet, that is not a good development. Hopefully we won't lose our electricity but we have a package of hot dogs and beans and peanut butter and a bunch of self lighting logs. I won't be around so if I don't see you for a few days you know why. Now I am taking my wonderfully planned snow day into my studio to keep myself joyfully happy knitting and embroidering two different purses(still no pictures). Keep safe and keep stitching.

Hi Debra Ann,

Fun story about the snow. Thank you for your comment! It is very helpful!

My sister has a Westie ...on my blog if you search for "violet" you will find her.

Snow is so weird the way it works. It is starting to sleet more here too.

Hope your electricity stays on!!!

Hi Diane! So far so good and I did happen to see Violet. I love my little Charley as I'm sure does your sister. Westies are great dogs!

Charlie is such a cutie!! He looks like he would blend in with the snow. It must be fun to watch him enjoy it so much.
We are getting the same type of storm here. Now the big winds are picking up. I hope we don't loose power too. Here's hoping the forces of nature keep both houses well lit!!
XOXXO
