Adrift

Actually, many many drifts – of snow!  We have had an exceptionally windy January, and all the lovely snow that was laid down in the field has ended up in our yard – front and back.  Keep in mind that our fence is 6 feet high when you see the first two pics:

The kids particularly enjoyed walking up the snow drifts and stepping over the gate!  I did not enjoy all the shoveling in the front yard tho – wayyyyyy toooooo much snow!

January has been an odd month for handwork.  Between shovelling snow, being sick, having a sick computer, and working on projects that I cannot post about yet, there is not much to show.   I did finish knitting another Gryffindor scarf – this one is for DD:

My DD celebrated her 10th birthday – she is now officially in double digits!  She had a wonderful day, as she was off school, and got to go skating, help make her cupcake birthday cake, and have a friend out for sushi!  116_1666  I cannot believe how quickly the time has flown!

And on a final note, I have been tagged by Pauline http://www.paruscircle.blogspot.com/

The idea here is to go to your 6th picture file and choose the 6th picture, and then tag 6 blogging friends.  Well, pickings are mightly slim in my photo files, as I had to delete all the hardware on the computer and then reload Windows.  But this is what I found:

060814-babbling-bats_big  DS is working on a book review of Sunwing, by Kenneth Oppel…. so there have been loads of bat photos floating about the computer!  And now to tag 6 friends:

    Wow, Kathy, that’s a load of snow. I know how you must feel during and after shoveling. I’ve done it, too this winter a couple of times.
    The Gryffindor scarf for your daughter looks really nice. She seems to like it very much.

    Hi Kathy,
    We share the same dillema during winter. I can’t really tell who got more snow… LOL we have some 2-way roads here that are now 1-way roads due to lots of snow and high drifts. Our road maintainer used to pass by before noontime, but lately, it’s always mid-afternoon. Oh well…

    Your DD’s scarf is lovely! Yay, I wish I could knit as good as you but I just learned the basic yesterday. Thanks to MIL’s patience. LOL

    Thanks for the TAG.:) I will do my part in a lil’ bit.

    Have a great weekend! Keep warm!
