The Beauty of Ice

We awoke yesterday to a glistening world...


the result of the previous day's ice storm.


A layer of ice covered every surface...


made even more beautiful by the rising sun.


Even though the world is covered by a thick frozen blanket,



I know that Spring lies just below the surface of the ground...
waiting to burst forth!


It won't be too very long until we begin to see the early signs of her arrival.
And with that arrival comes a brand new world...
fresh and colorful and full of possibilities.



Oh, what fun we are going to have in the coming months...
so many projects!!

So, for now, I will make the most of inside projects.
In my quest to downsize my belongings,
I have vowed to use up my apron fabric stash.
I am planning a sewing room re-do...


and cleaning out is step number one!

Yesterday's apron was this one...


Just looking at this fabric has made me very eager to get back out to my garden.



Of course, in any given day,
the most important task is this one...

I was just thinking, how many cases of Ritz must they have stockpiled! You are downsizing your belongings, except for the Ritz!

Your pooches are so well-behaved, each waiting his/her turn.

Enjoy your frosty weekend, y'all!
