Winter's Day Well Spent
Friday night and Saturday brought a little snow and a lot of freezing rain, sleet and ice our way. It made for a very grey, cold, wet day.
INSIDE: Simmering chili.
INSIDE: Corn bread. (To go with the chili, of course!)
OUTSIDE: Lonely swingset.
INSIDE: Monopoly by the fire.
OUTSIDE Not much traffic today!
INSIDE: Warm, spicy chai. (Recipe can be found here.)
OUTSIDE: Ice everywhere.
INSIDE: Plenty of time for knitting. You can read more about my Valentine's scarf here on Ravelry.
I lived in Michigan for 5 years. I remember how stir crazy I could get with months of days like this. I certainly don't miss that! However, in these parts we don't get much "proper" winter weather. A weekend of forced hibernation has been rather nice. It has been quite pleasant, I confess, to have a few days where everything shuts down, and everyone slows down!
