it wasn't supposed to snow until tomorrow
but it decided to surprise us and arrive today
we took a trip up the road to get vittles for the rest of the week
because the great arctic vortex is coming again and we wouldn't want to be caught short
the three above are phone camera
snow and movement make for blurry photos
but you get the gist
the ones below were taken with fancy shmancy camera
cold fingers and blowing wind make for blurry photos
but you get......
|right before the movie|
we snuggled down and decided to watch a movie in the afternoon!!!!
when it was over
so was the storm
and this is what it looked like
|half an hour after the movie...movie was 90 mins!!!!!|
told you the weather was playing silly buggers

a while ago and found it again a couple of days ago
so I had a go yesterday
and look what happened
yarn in the stash that needs to be used
Caron Country which I loved
but it's been discontinued so I don't have a lot to use
I played with the colours
with this stitch
"Leaping Stripes and Blocks"
that comes from
looks different because I used so many colours
and I changed the dc (US) to a half dc
there is a wonderful video to help you do it
and it's a lot easier than it looks
gather all those bits again and have a go
I made it with thicker cotton too
and it worked in a "messier" way...
I liked this tighter denser version
the weather continues to be completely crazy
it's playing silly buggers all over the place
we were under tornado warnings and watches yesterday
and in fact a tornado touched down on the other side of the river in Maryland,
it reached almost 70 F ( 14/15 C)
today will be the same
and then it's going back down....way down next week
with more snow

with all your pretty pins
pinned by pinners
pin after pin
of pretty this and prettier that
page after page of
ohh's and ahh's
and Oh I could make that
so and so would like that
god forbid you go below the photo and find that endless list of
"you may like these"
you could end up in
and not know how you got there
or who you are anymore
and heaven help you if you come across a new page
or yarn company
you aren't even safe in your own
behind your monitor
phone android or not
millions of us have now squeezed and pushed and shoved and forced
a bzillion pins onto one place
damn if we don't try to see all of them
I think we have a problem
wind 'em if you have'em
get that ball winder out
get those dusty bags full of tangles and mess
and bits and pieces and oh's and ahh's started and never thought of again
knot it all together
and make some
fresh tightly wound balls and have at it
pinterest ain't going anywhere.......
neither are we!!!!!
