It's a typical, Saturday. Well maybe typical is the wrong word, maybe I should start by saying it's my favorite kind of Saturday. The kind I can start in my recliner, with my first (second or third) cup of coffee. The computer is on and I'm writing this post, looking forward to reading eveyone's blogs, then catching up with emails. The crew here at In Pieces has been everywhere but home it seems the last few weekends. It's nice to catch a break. The plan for the rest of the day is to work on the Geisha quilt in hopes it can be mailed to Trudy Monday. It's cold, it's raining and after walking miles yesterday in both solo and Kiddo Christmas shopping modes, my legs are really sore. So it's a perfect day to stay in and just sew.
Before I get to the sewing part of the day, it is time for this week's Foto Finish post. The theme this week is cold. I didn't have to look far. Last February we started the month with a miserable snow and ice storm. This poor guy took refuge in our rose bushes. Doesn't he look really cold?
Later in the month, we had a record low of -29 F. It was below freezing the day I snapped this shot, but not quite that cold. I'm hoping we are not on tap for as cold and snowy of a winter has we had last year. However, the forecast is for snow on Monday. I guess I can still hope for warmer temps.
