It snowed heavily until about 4pm and has snowed on and off ever since then,I think We have had about 10 inches fall around where I live,I've never seen so much snow since I was a child living in Germany.
Anyway I decided that rather than sit in the house and moan about it I'd get out and build a snowman,throw a few snowballs etc
and do you know what..I loved it!!
So for two lovely days snowy fun was had by all!
But now its a bit messed up and dirty looking..going a bit slushy then freezing again,its just slippy and cold now.
So to keep warm and cosy I've spent a good bit of time this week getting on with my very first attempt at a ripple blanket,after hours of agonising and almost crying because I couldn't quite get it right I finally cracked it and now I'm well on my way to a lovely blue ziggy zaggy stripey blanket...
Its getting pretty cosy sitting under it whilst I hook away,unlike the last blanket I made which was in the middle of summer..I was so hot sewing it together that I kept falling asleep!
One last thing I really wanted to mention,I read lots of books,I don't have a genre I prefer over any other I just love to read.
So last January I decided to make a note of every book I read over the year and my goal was one book a week,which at one time would have been easy peasy for me,but since I discovered crochet and computers my reading time has greatly reduced.
Anyways I read a grand total of 50 books and had 2 more books not quite finished so..not a bad years reading I think.
I read a mixture of old favourites and new discoveries including the delicious stories by Alexander McCall Smith...
I only picked up one of his books because my daughter had been studying it at college and She'd left it lying around..and now I'm hooked!
I re-read all the Harry Potter books and some other old favourites,I as always took an entire library on holiday with me in the summer and I sought comfort in some old friends during a sad time in the autumn.
so 2010..I'm onto my third book already and hoping to beat last years goal!
