With the temperature steadily dropping (10 degrees at breakfast time), we are officially in. Indoors.
Yes, we may have the occasional warm-up for sledding and will most definitely spend time on the slopes after the New Year. But alas, most of the four-month stretch ahead of us will be spent inside. In some ways I like the excuse to hibernate, knitting needles and coffee close by. But this year, with the six of us in just over 900 square feet of space.....well, you can bet I'll be counting down the days until Spring!
Granted, we are not always here. Co-op, gymnastics, play practice, and basketball keep us out and about. But for those moments when we have nowhere to be and when there is no end to the cold weather in sight, we have projects. Thank goodness for projects!
Needlepoint has become a recent favorite. Which means I need to brush up on my own embroidery skills so I can be a better teacher. Sigh. (It's just so tiny!) We finally got around to sanding our spatulas that we carved at the Common Ground fair. The next step is to get some linseed oil to coat and finish them. Does anyone have any experience with this? I really love these...can't wait to use them!
Hoping your frosty days are warm and busy, friends!
