We had a few days of snow, which made for a beautiful Winter Wonderland. It was a treat to wake up and see everywhere white and untouched. A delight to know that the gritter had been by so it would be relatively safe to drive if needed.
The storm did bring with it some strong winds which knocked down most of our gates and a window in the outbuilding. More jobs to add to the list once the weather picks up. As you can see from the photo, the windows are in dire need of cleaning. Top of the list for when the weather calms down. The snow didn't last long but it was fun to reminisce about snow days when our daughters were younger and the fun we had when they didn't have to go to school.
The mornings are bringing some stunning skies, along with some substantial rain but not a problem when we don't have to go out. We are warm and cosy with the stove lit and have plenty of hobbies to keep us busy. We do feel blessed and are thankful for our craft supplies.
Work on the dolls house continues, the lighting is now in place. The roof and ridge tile is now complete. We have started to explore the flooring and decoration, doing a little research in the process. It is so nice working together on something. We have also made plans and the inevitable list for the garden.
Work on the 'doorstep blessings' continue. I have made some tissue holders and lavender bags for this weeks contribution.
The idea is to let the recipient know they are not alone and are been thought of during this time of Covid. It is a Church initiative that I am supporting. It is in itself a gift for me too as it is giving me something to work on. I didn't do any baking this week as I am trying to lose a few pounds and it is too much of a temptation to have goodies in the cake tin. Chicken and fish has featured in a lot of our meals this week thus far, with plenty of vegetables and salad. We have a healthy balanced diet in the main but of late a lack of exercise is becoming a problem. At least we are aware of it and can make a few changes. Has the lockdown made a difference to you with your weight?
The baby blanket nears completion, the squares are now complete. It needs to be stitched together and the ends sewn in. Finally the border will complete it. I must admit it has been a joy to sit and crochet a couple of squares a day, it was quite amazing how quickly it grew. I do like to have a crochet project on the go.
What are you working on?
Hope all is well with you and that you are able to keep yourself amused in these difficult times. Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
