The Last Hurrah...
I am beginning to think that I could probably live in Alaska and be quite happy. I'm not tired yet of snow (to be fair, we've only had three or four snow days and today's was by far the most significant with around five inches), gathering round the fire, knitting, reading, bundling up, or oatmeal.
It was a gorgeous day on Saturday, but I knew that there were cold days ahead, so I dug up a little pot of shamrocks from the lawn and cut a few branches from the Thundercloud Plum trees that were just starting to show some life. Hopefully they will brighten things up in the playroom for the next week or so.
We have literally two logs left for the fireplace and I don't think that we will get any more wood this season. That makes me sad... especially since we are covered in snow. Maybe I'll get a little $5 bundle before we really close things down.
It's Button's namesday tomorrow! I can't wait! He's going to love his gifts this year!
