|It’s a Snow Day! (Sorry, Carrie.)|
|The bad side means having to shovel snow.|
|And I guess this means that my iris probably won’t bloom.|
|But the good side means it’s a great day for having soup and sandwiches for lunch, as well as a nice spot of tea.|
|And it’s a great day for playing with all of the lovely leftover yarn Anne gave me from her Holly and Poinsettia mittens – it’s enough to do the colorwork on the cuffs, so I only needed to order the two main yarns for the mittens. It’s already been shipped, so hopefully it will arrive soon.|
It would be a perfect day for knitting in front of a fire. And one of my most favorite things about our house is our interesting fireplace, with its pretty summer cover. I don’t think you can tell from the photo, but the center detail is some sort of helmeted person. A Greek or Roman soldier, maybe? Who knows. Sadly, we’ve never had the fireplace and chimney inspected, so we’ve never used it. I’m pretty sure without the inspection that it would need a lot of work before it was safe to use. Still, it’s a nice addition to the living room.
