Frost and Ice

In a matter of days we have gone from torrential downpours to frosty mornings and icy roads. If we have to have a winter these are the days I prefer. They may be cold but they are clear and you can see how nice the mountains look. There's a picture in my header that I took a few days ago. I was surprised to see Trout Lake was frozen, guessing the city didn't expect it either as there were no warning signs up about staying off the ice.

I wasn't feeling well for a few days, eating too much chocolate and goodies, I think. I really shouldn't bring any into the house, but how can one resist buying them when that's the first thing you see walking into a store. I tell you I have NO willpower whatsoever.

I don't have any new stitching to show, been playing with my stash and wondering when and how I'm going to stitch it all when I'm still buying more :) We can all relate to that, can't we. Also need to get my WIP's into order and work on them before they sit around for another year.

Off to make myelf some hot chocolate and watch Midsommer Murders, you know I wouldn't mind living in a small town like that, except there's always a murder or two every week *LOL*

We just join you in having winter weather as we had about 4 to 5 inches of snow last night. Hopefully, it won't stay but who knows.

Hope you are feeling better, but Irene, this is the season of eating all those goodies.

That is one beautiful picture Irene! Wow.

Hope you feel better. I know, it's really hard this time of year when you see all of those Christmas goodies :oP

Hi Irene!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and the interest in my little free chart - yes, it is still available. Please let me have your email address so that I can send you the pdf.

You can also send me an email:

You are absolutely right - we can all relate to having too much stash and not being able to stop ourselves from buying even more! (I probably have enough stash for a few lifetimes!)

Hope you are feeling better now!
