The World Went White

20120103-221644.jpg

Pittsburgh saw the first real snow of winter today. When I woke up, my street was covered with the slush of it and I had to drag my snow shovel out of the basement. Those of you who’ve been reading for a while know, winter is my least favorite time of year. I grew up in Atlanta. Snow is a strange, awful substance that I’m convinced is designed to ruin anything good in the world.

In honor of the snowfall, I pulled out some yarn scraps and whipped up this dish towel while I watched Quills on Netflix. A little sadism from the Marquis de Sade himself- he reminds me of Old Man Winter. I suppose I’ll settle in for the long, miserable slog. In the meantime, I’ll focus on these paper flowers I picked up in San Antonio and dream of spring.

  1. Snow is icky. I saw that movie, and although I don’t remember most of it, I think about it All. The. Time.

  2. I cheer when we have snow in Atlanta. I feel right at home then. Certainly did during the cold snap this week too. I suppose our similarities ended at height and opinion of snow…

  3. I can’t get down with snow. Now, my Yak Trax, which y’all recommended… life changers.

    • I am so glad you took my advice on them! I was missing my old pair last winter, but haven’t remotely needed anything like them so far this year. Horses are about the same distance from the house here at the new farm as they were at the old house in town. But, there is so much less concrete, I’m hoping if we do get ice, it won’t be as much of an issue as there is somewhere for the melt off to go.
