Hooray for the snow! Yesterday and today have been declared 'snow days', so there's been no school. I've stayed inside and pottered about getting housey jobs done and admiring the prettty outside scenes from the inside. I've fed my obsessions for knitting and blogging and spent hours messing around on-line; dropping in on blogger 'friends' and playing about with photos etc. Oh how easy it is to spend lots of time not really doing very much. It's so easy! I took all of these photos this morning, during which time we had another fairly heavy snow shower, just to keep the 'white stuff' levels topped up nicely. I've watched the birds too. Quite a few of our regulars were there feeding. Our robin friend made frequent visits to the sunflower seeds and almost dive-bombed the large fat ball that we have hanging from an old linen line post. The magpie who lives close by and makes the most awful racket from our rooftop all through the summer months was there too, alongside a steady stream of tits and finches. It's not often I have the time to sit and watch.....so thank you 'snow day'. Hopefully my December socks will be all done too. I'm now past the heel on sock number 2, so I should be able to show the full twelve months worth on Sundy evening along with some of my plans and ideas for 2010!
So all in all I've had a thoroughly relaxed, peaceful, cosy and hermit-like two days. It's been blissful. Thank you 'snow day' maker, whoever you are. I love you!
