Foto Finish - Cold

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. 

Check out Cat Patches for more chilling shots. 


  1. Our weather is supposed to turn cold next week, but there is no snow in the forecast. Poor birdie. I always worry about the birdies when the weather turns cold. A lot of the regulsr birds are gone, but there are still a lot of jays and some little brown birds around. Sweet shot of this little guy.

  2. Great shot! And "Brrr!" he does look cold. I've spent my morning the same as yours. I'm off to finish the last (hopefully) raking of the Fall leaves. Happy Saturday! ☺

  3. Love the picture, but I guess I still am not ready for the cold... it is 40 degrees out and raining today... not sure what I think of that either on the 3rd day of December! When our son was born (26 years ago tomorrow), we had a couple of massive snowstorms already... I thought I was going to have our baby at home!
    Glad to hear you get some relaxing time at home... it's about time!

  4. Poor birdie - he does look cold. Great shot!

  5. Sounds like a peaceful Saturday morning. I'm in the middle of one right now, but I haven't ventured out of my bedroom so who knows what the outside world looks like. Beautiful picture, but oh so cold.

  6. I cant even imagine those kind of temperatures. That's literally freezing. How do you guys not act like bears and hole up for the ntire winter?

    I love lazy Saturdays (or Sundays , or any day really!)

  7. Oh my! Brrr! And I think it's cold when the temperature drops to 20°C (68°F)!! I think the coldest we have ever had was -4°C (25°F)!! The hottest I can remember is 44°C (111°F).
