But this Winter...this Winter has broken everyone. Including me. Last week was the first full week of school my daughter has had this (calendar) year. EVERY week, we have gotten a snow storm. Or an ice storm. EVERY week her school has cancelled at least one day. My work schedule has been crazy (either I take off, or arrive late). And the ice. I am SO. OVER. The ice!! I look at ice and just want to cry - rather than attempt to walk across it one more time. I feel like every place I go, I have to walk on ice. I fell once this season - and my body hurt for at least a week afterwards. And I know so many people who have broken bones from falling on ice this year.
My sense of time this year is all out of whack - and it's not that good to begin with. This is what happens when you have 2 days at work, one home, 2 more at work, then off for 2 days...you get the idea.
So, I thought I'd share some pictures, showing what's been going on in my life:
That's our back yard. The bird bath farthest from the shed sits in a garden. This picture was taken from the bathroom window - I had very little interest in actually going out in the snow this year.
This is the start of one of the patterns in the January 2014 Rockin Sock Club shipment. It's the Paper Lanterns Shawlette. The 'paper lanterns' in the edging will lay flat when the shawlette is blocked. I am LOVING this pattern and this colorway!
We were babysitting my friend's little boy this past weekend. Here, Kyra made a "hammock" for him, using a blanket & her legs.
What have you been doing this Winter, to keep yourself occupied?
