We have about four and a half feet on the ground and we're expecting a few more inches today and tonight. It's gusty and snowy and . . . I'm ready for spring. We went into town yesterday to deliver mail and pick up some weather station stuff (including a new motor, which will hopefully fix our snow collecting bucket system). For a change of pace, I snowshoed (and walked where the snow was frozen enough) and Thayer skied. This reminded me that cross-country skiing was invented for a purpose- long distance treks over well-frozen terrain. It's really much faster and easier than walking with bulky things strapped to your feet. The weather cooperated very well for the trek into town- so sunny that Thayer ended up with some sunburn on his face. I got my haircut for the first time in a year while we were in CB- it feels marvelous!
Here's what it looks like outside our cabin today.
all of those damn gauge swatches I made for this sweater? I ended up having to reclaim that yarn to have enough for sewing the hems down. But here is what the sweater looks like. It's not quite this pink; when I finish it, I'll have Thayer take a photo outside to give a more accurate idea of the color.
