That’s fahrenheit, folks

It becomes clear to me that I really do want to knit a skirt and some leg warmers for me.

We got about a foot of snow Sunday. We are due for 6-12 inches tonight. Then, unbelievably, a storm Friday which will likely be my all time favorite – “wintry mix, rain on the coast”. So, not being exactly on the coast, we can expect ice, but we MIGHT get rain, and have no snow when it is over. Either way, I think I will not plan to do a lot out of the house this weekend.

  1. Ahh—The things I miss about Maine. I use to love rocking my car from drive to reverse to get the tires unstuck from the ground. There is nothing quite like the sound of rubber ripping away from asphalt. If your interested in skirts and leggings to knit check out Kate Davies Designs. She’s in Scotland and her knits are really warm and pretty.

    1. Yeah – and listening to the starter chug away, trying hard to make a spark, and the engine trying to ignore it. I do follow Kate Davies blog, I will take a look at her ravelry page to see her skirt designs. I love the Shetland dress she has written about.

    1. I would LOVE to do that. 22 sounds like shorts and t shirt weather right now. ๐Ÿ™‚ We should get there tomorrow during the day, but still will be well below zero each night this week. Until Friday when all hell breaks loose.

    1. They are crazy! Ice fishermen here do it up in style with trucks, heated cabins, etc. But I think that isn’t; happening yet, the ice has to get a bit thicker. It’s warmer today – about ten above , which feels down right balmy. ๐Ÿ™‚

      You keep warm too –

  2. So sorry about all your wintry white stuff. It is 37 degrees here in Michigan today! Heat wave!! I LOVE it! I think we are getting rain, snow, yucky stuff tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Bundle up and stay warm ๐Ÿ™‚

A Note From Abroad

โ€œTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnโ€™t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.โ€ ~ Mark Twain
