Last week it was ice. This week it was snow. It is hard to measure exactly how much we got since the wind was pretty fierce and made drifts; but the first storm dropped somewhere in between 20-26 inches. I was off for Thursday and Friday. We had cleaned most of it up and another small storm came in and since we hadn't done the walks yet, I took the day off to shovel. There was more snow on Friday night into Saturday. Yep, Phil and I have to have a little talk. I hate the shoveling and the danger of driving but here in the backyard you can really see the beauty of a world covered in white. It truly is lovely.
As you can see, it is snowing in my game too! :)
I know I haven't mentioned my tree for two weeks now. It is a huge project and I've been working on it on and off. Truth be told, I needed to do some home remodeling. Hubby built me a beautiful animal pen and I created a new garden. I also discovered both a Jungle Temple and a Desert Temple purely by dumb luck. The Desert Temple is my new teleport hub; which is awesome since the room I was doing it in was just a bunch of signs...like sticky notes in wood. I reorganized my kitchen area and the basement is filling up with chests just like I wanted. I have been dying the sheep around my home and then breeding them which is so much fun! I found two Villages filled with Clerics and Librarians and both of them had no church; so I build one. In case you ever need blueprints for the villages, they are here. And I made a little fishing nook that is really great at giving you enchanted bows, ink sacs, lily pads and sometimes fish. :)
The grey lace is the Nana Knit Lace Cowl I've been working on this week. Everyday I have been doing two full repeats. Nana wanted one in wool and I thought this wool with a bit of silk in it would be perfect; and I was right. It has just a bit of give and the definition is lovely. I'm wondering how long I actually need to make it. Nana had mentioned that she wanted it a bit longer in the back. It is hard to judge without blocking it. So I've decided to knit until the grey one matches the length of the sky-blue one. When I reach that length I will block it and see how much it grows. Regardless, I need to make a Knit Picks order....oh darn. ;)
I will be back to squares next week and a new color scheme to boot. I need to work on the cowl as much as I can before then...at least until I run out of yarn.
I have no witticisms this week. The ice..snow...sleet...whatever keeps falling from the skies is wearing me down. I ache and now I leave you to go and soak in a tub of goodness. My bathroom which was started in October is now almost complete. I don't have jets yet or my chromatherapy; but a tub of hot water sounds delicious right now.
