MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

brrrrrr......

Well, after an almost-white Christmas, we awoke to this today....


These photos were taken from our balcony this morning.  If you embiggen them, hopefully you can see the river in the background...not frozen over, but it does have a skiff of ice here and there.  Unfortunately the sun didn't come out for the photo op!

These little tracks were in the snow on our balcony,
most likely from mourning doves.

We're still recovering from the usual over abundance of good things to eat and have spent the most part of today ensconced in our easy chairs with our books, only getting up occasionally to replenish our cups of tea.  ahhhhhh......

I like the calm after the holiday. I don't, however, like that snow!! Our weather is unseasonably ward at 40 degrees. I'll take it as long as Mother Nature sends it my way, but she can warm it up a bit in April.
Happy New Year.

Don't those designs in the snow make you want to use them in a pattern, embroidery, knitting, something?

Beautiful photos ... I love to see the snow through the eyes of other bloggers as we so rarely get any in this part of Cornwall. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one that over indulged!!!!! xx
