Snow storm after snow storm, bitter cold, shoveling, paying for the plow man, feeding the birds, bundling up like you were headed to the Arctic just to go to the store, doing all the worrying and work that comes with WINTER. There, I've said it.
We even shovel a path for Roy so he can do his thing without being in 2 ft of snow.
This week, my car is being fixed, from my unpleasant meeting with a tractor trailer. It will be there all week. My insurance would have paid a whopping $20 a day for a rental, but what would I get with that? Something that would get through the snow without breaking into a cold sweat?
I think not.
So I am getting delivered to the studio in the morning, and picked up later, by DH. It's not like I am up for any traveling other than that anyway.
I can do it for a week.
So alone at the studio, I looked around for what I would get into.
Today, I decided to go with "winter whites/gray skies".
I love these rugs, so reminiscent of birch bark. They are heavy, and solid, and earthy.
See my old boots by the door. I've been wearing them every winter for 14 years. I like to get my money's worth.
These first two rugs off the loom, another finished and probably 3 more to go.
The rest of the afternoon calls for a hot cuppa tea, and my new book.
Yup, more winter.
